Renew – Improve skin texture with Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) treatment
RENEW is a procedure to improve your skin texture, tone and color; treat traumatic scars and stretch marks, cellulite and loss of firmness by stimulating collagen and elastin production.
In order to achieve this result, we will use the Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) harvested from your own blood in the treatment area. The procedure will last for about 1 hour.
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 or local anesthesia will be applied to minimize any discomfort you may feel during treatment.
The Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) will be injected in the scar or area with stretch marks. The micro-needling device will be used to apply remaining PRP harvested to the area treated. And if you choose to add fat stem cells, we will perform micro-liposuction to collect and harvest your fat tissue.
You may experience redness at 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.
Scar treatments will require 1 to 6 treatments spaced 6 weeks apart.
Stretch marks will require 1 to 4 treatments spaced 6 weeks part.
Other areas such as, décolleté & hands, could be treated with 1 to 2 visits.
Maintenance treatments are recommended every 1 to 2 years for treatments other than stretch marks and 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.
