We are living in the era of regenerative medicine, and as soon as you experience the benefits of regenerative medicine for yourself, you’ll completely understand the allure. The principles of regenerative medicine revolve around the “process of replacing, engineering or regenerating human cells, tissues or organs to restore or establish normal function.” In other words, regenerative medicine stimulates the body to heal itself from the inside out. This is a game-changing arena in the medical industry, and it’s already widely available in the form of PRP to help you achieve younger looking skin.
PRP stands for platelet-rich plasma, which is blood plasma with a concentrated number of your own platelets. These platelets contain critical growth factors and other cytokines that trigger real healing of bone and soft tissue. This is not a band aid solution, but quite the opposite. Injections of PRP genuinely provide the skin with the tools it needs to reduce, eliminate, and prevent damage.
Fine Lines and Wrinkles
Perhaps the most popular use of PRP is to wipe away fine lines and wrinkles on the face. When injected into the face, PRP acts like a matrix to encourage the production of new collagen. Collagen is the key to your skin’s vitality, but its levels in the body decrease every year. PRP reverses this problem by providing enough collagen for wrinkles and fine lines to disappear as the skin regenerates naturally. Results will show within a month.
We all have stretch marks somewhere. It’s common to see them on the legs, breasts, and stomach. Wherever your stretch marks are located, you don’t have to live with them forever. Stretch marks are caused by rapidly gaining or losing weight, pregnancy, and generally weak elastic fibers in the skin. PRP blended with microneedling can fix this by creating controlled injuries along the stretch marks to trigger a healing response in the inner dermis, then accelerating that healing with an injection of PRP. Over the span of a month, new collagen will help fresh skin cells replace the dead skin cells that led to stretch marks. Overall, your stretch marks will shrink in size and your skin will look rejuvenated.
Tired Neck and Chest
All of the above is also true for the chest and neck, which are often ignored due to so much focus on the face. The truth is, your chest and neck might show your age even before your face does, because they are two areas of the body that receive less TLC. All it takes is a PRP treatment to help those neck and chest wrinkles, discoloration, and creases disappear.
