PRP is PLATELET RICH PLASMA – the newest “wrinkle” in wrinkle reduction, is the most advanced procedure used to increase collagen production and reduce fine lines and wrinkles. PRP is your own plasma, platelets, stem cells and growth factors concentrated and reapplied to your skin to reduce wrinkles, fine lines, large pores, acne scars, chicken pox scars, lax skin – even stretch marks!

PRP Treatment Basics
In 2010, Dr. Toscano and Red Bamboo Medi Spa were the first to introduce the “Stem Cell Facial” using platelet rich plasma to the Tampa Bay Area.
First we draw a small amount of your blood and spin it down in a high-powered centrifuge to separate out the Platelet Rich Plasma. We then take half of this liquid gold PRP and massage it into thousands of micro-channels created in your skin by the revolutionary Dermapen®. The other half is injected directly into problem areas like lip lines, smile lines, forehead lines, necklace lines, nasolabial folds, pitted scars, and lax skin of the jowls or under the eyes. PRP can even be used on stretch marks and any scar anywhere on your body.
Downtime is less than 24 hours – much better than with Fraxel or any laser treatments. And best of all, no foreign material is used. It’s all YOU. So if you have sensitive skin, PRP is the perfect choice giving you the results you are looking for with no chance of an allergic reaction! Most patients receive 2-3 treatments. It is recommended that treatments are spaced at least 12 weeks apart.
Benefits Of PRP Treatments
The PRP procedure is perfect for those who prefer to have a more natural improvement in their skin with very little risk of complications. Patients can begin to see improvements in the health and youthful appearance of their skin in the first four weeks with increased benefits over the next 3 months. The benefits can last for years.

- Fine lines, bags and wrinkles around the eyes
- Creases on the forehead
- Loose or saggy skin
- Lip wrinkles
