Rejuvenate – Erase wrinkles and scars with Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) and Microneedling
REJUVENATE is a procedure for your face to decrease and/or erase wrinkles and acne scars; improve skin texture, tone and color; stimulate collagen and elastin production for a younger looking complexion. We can also add stem cells (from your own fat) and plasma gel (as filler).
In order to achieve this result, we will use the PRP (platelets) harvested from your own blood in the treatment area. The procedure will last for about 1 hour or longer.
First your blood will be drawn to extract the platelets (using an FDA approved centrifuge machine to concentrate the blood after the blood draw). Then topical anesthesia will be applied to minimize any discomfort you may feel during treatment.
If you choose to add fat cells to your procedure, we will perform a mini-liposuction to collect and harvest your fat tissue.
The PRP will be injected as a filler for wrinkles, e.g. nasolabial folds and under eye lines. Micro-needling device will be used to apply remaining PRP harvested to the entire face. Fat cells can be transferred to add volume or micronized to use in the microcanula injections and/or microneedling.
You may experience redness in the general treated area for 2 to 4 days and there is possibility of bruising of the injection sites.
There could be some immediate result but you should see steady improvements over time which could be 6 months and beyond as your body produces more collagen.
Best results are achieved with 2 or 3 treatments spaced about 2 months apart. But some patients may require only 1 treatment especially if you choose to add stem cells.
For acne scars, up to 6 to 8 treatments may be required at 6 week intervals.
Maintenance treatments are recommended every 1 to 2 years for treatments other than acne scars.
All of this procedure takes place while you are under local anesthesia.
Every step of this procedure is NOT covered by any health insurance plan so you are completely responsible for the cost.
Pre and post procedure information will be given as well as nutritional information and a list of recommended supplements.
