PRP Facial Des Moines
PRP Facial (platelet rich plasma) will improve your skin’s texture, rebuild collagen and reduce your fine lines. One of our trained professionals will use the SkinPen® micro-needling technology to prep your skin for better absorption before applying your PRP. This same method can also be used to improve the appearance of your neck, chest, hands, or even a scar! One of the newest and most popular aesthetic technologies to hit young Hollywood in recent years.
What is Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)?
PRP has been utilized for years as a way to stimulate growth of new cells in a variety of applications. PRP has recently received a great deal of press as it relates to treatments to restore youthful appearance to your skin. For example, Dr. Robbins uses PRP with lasers and microneedling to expedite healing and for anti-aging and improvement in skin texture and tone. Dr. Robbins uses PRP with the PRP Facial, PRP FaceLift, and PRP Vaginal Rejuvenation. PRP is the body’s natural healing elixir and acts as a natural “fertilizer” that stimulates stem cells to grow and repair aged and damaged tissue. PRP also contains molecules and proteins that provide nutrients to the skin’s cells which is why it is the most natural way to improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, scars, and other effects of aging.
Platelet rich plasma (PRP) in human blood contains many growth factors that stimulate stem cells which have the ability to stimulate new cell and tissue growth and regeneration as well as tissue healing in the environment or location that the PRP is placed. Multiple medical publications over the past two decades confirm the safety and use of PRP therapy. PRP has been used with great success over the past 20 years in the fields of plastic surgery, reconstructive and wound healing treatments, oral surgery, neurosurgery, and orthopedics.
How is PRP obtained?
A small amount of blood (10mL- about a tablespoon) is drawn in our office just like a routine blood test. The blood is then spun in a centrifuge which will separate the platelet-rich plasma (PRP) from the other blood components which are not utilized. The kits used to obtain the PRP are FDA approved. The kits are sterile and isolate the PRP in a very effective way.
