PRP Procedures Des Moines
At Des Moines Plastic Surgery, we use platelet-rich plasma (PRP) to give patients smoother, tighter, and more youthful-looking skin. This treatment can also address a number of other issues.
Our blood is rich with essential nutrients and growth factors that the body needs to thrive. These growth factors can speed up healing, stimulate tissue regeneration, and help maintain a higher rate of cell growth.
PRP is a product creating by separating out the platelets in the blood that have a high amount of nutrients and growth factors. This concentrated substance can be used for treatments ranging from skin rejuvenation to hair growth.
What Is PRP?
Blood is made up of several components. These include red blood cells, white blood cells, blood plasma, and platelets. Platelets are smaller blood cells that help to control bleeding by linking together to create clots.
In order to create PRP, the blood needs to be processed so that the platelets can be isolated. The first step is harvesting enough blood for the desired treatment. Next, the blood is placed in a centrifuge. The intense spinning separates the other components from the platelets, leaving plasma with a heavy concentration of platelets. Finally, the PRP is placed into syringes and readied for injection.
The Power of PRP
PRP can be used to treat many aesthetic issues and has gained a lot of popularity due to it being a more natural option for skin rejuvenation, hair restoration, and vaginal rejuvenation.
PRP Facelift – This is an excellent option for individuals with noticeable signs of aging that may not be severe enough to require surgical rejuvenation. A PRP facelift combines the benefits of a hyaluronic-acid filler with the benefits provided by PRP injections. The filler creates instant enhancement, and the PRP stimulates the production of collagen and triggers cell healing and growth for long-lasting results.
PRP Facial – A combination of treatments, our PRP facial combines microneedling with the amazing skin-rejuvenating abilities PRP has to offer. Microneedling creates small wounds on the surface of the skin called micro-channels. These make it easier for the PRP to penetrate deeper into the skin, which in turn provides better overall results that restore the youthful beauty of the skin.
PRP Hair Restoration – The nutrients and growth factors found in PRP can be used to prevent hair loss and promote hair growth. When injected into the areas of the scalp where hair loss is occurring, the PRP provides essential nutrients and stimulates tissue healing and growth.
PRP Vaginal Rejuvenation – A simple and effective procedure designed to improve vaginal health and enhance sexual satisfaction. PRP vaginal rejuvenation helps to tighten tissues in the area, improve lubrication, treat stress urinary incontinence, and increase sensitivity.
