PRP Facial Treatment
PRP Skin Regeneration Therapy


This is a type of regenerative medicine with the patient’s own blood and uses components called platelets in the blood to rejuvenate the skin.


These growth factors enhance proliferation of fibroblasts and keratinocytes which produce collagen and keratin respectively.

PRP Wrinkle Reduction Therapy is a truly bio-friendly approach to wrinkle reduction and volume augmentation.


Upon activation, PRP is injected into wrinkles for immediate volume augmentation and long lasting collagen regenerating effects. Additionally it enhances the texture and vitality of your skin by creating new blood vessels. Newly created vessels provide vital nutrients to the skin to maintain you.











Indications: Expected Effects in Cosmetic Medicine

Efficacy of PRP

It is effective particularly for inducing skin regeneration, the therapy is also effective in treating wrinkles, acne marks, sags, and wrinkles on the neck.

Interaction between PRP and white blood cells results in the release of growth factors that potentiate the natural healing power and tissue reorganization potential at injection sites and subsequent regeneration of the skin.

In conventional therapy, it takes about two months for any benefit to be seen, although the time varies among individuals. PRP Skin Regeneration Therapy produces noticeable symptomatic improvement in a short period of about two weeks.


  Conventional procedures PRP Skin Regeneration Therapy
Enrichment of platelets About two-fold About six- to ten-fold
(three to five times that for conventional procedures)
Time to benefit About two months About two weeks
(one-fourth that for conventional procedures)
White blood cells Little or no WBC Appropriate amount of WBC

PRP Skin Regeneration Therapy uses components called platelets contained in the blood. Platelets play a role in stopping bleeding and repairing damaged blood vessels and cells in the body. Platelets contain substances called growth factors that activate and rejuvenate cells in the body. The growth factors, when released, induce the production of collagen and generation of new capillaries to rejuvenate the skin.


Action of Growth Factors of Platelets



As described previously, skin regeneration with PRP is based on the mechanism that platelets release a variety of growth factors to promote tissue repair, angiogenesis, and collagen production for skin rejuvenation.

Skin Rejuvenation with PRP

Injection of Platelet Component (PRP) ?????(PRP)???

The aged skin has less collagen, low elasticity, reduced amount of hyaluronic acid, and low ability to retain moisture.

Release of Growth Factors From Platelet Component (PRP) Release of Growth Factors From Platelet Component (PRP)

Cell growth is activated, and collagen is produced.

Regeneration and Rejuvenation of Skin Tissue Regeneration and Rejuvenation of Skin Tissue

Collagen is produced, and skin elasticity is improved. The ability to retain moisture is restored.



PRP Skin Regeneration Therapy is expected to provide great benefit. The therapy uses the patient’s own blood for rejuvenation and thus poses no risk of infection or allergy. It has the advantage of a longer duration of efficacy compared with injection of hyaluronic acid and collagen that are absorbed into the body. Other features such as no need for skin incision and short downtime (swelling usually resolves in two to three hours) make this therapy a safe treatment.


 
Specific treatment Injection of platelet-rich plasma containing autologous white blood cells collected from the blood. Use of regenerative power of the skin. Injection of medical-grade hyaluronic acid or collagen for maintenance of firm skin, or injection of Botox to reduce the movement of muscles.
Benefit Crepy skin under the eyes, fine wrinkles in the face, nasolabial grooves, acne marks, sagged skin, etc Nip and tuck for fine wrinkles in the whole face, wrinkles on the neck and hands, nasolabial grooves, wrinkles between the eyebrows and forehead, expression wrinkles at the corner of the eyes, chin, nose, etc.
Adverse reaction Infections and allergy do not occur because the patient’s own blood components are used. Unlikely to occur.
Effective period About 1 year Absorbed in about 0.5 to 1year
Re-injection The blood is not absorbed, and thus repeated injections are not necessary (additional injection is allowed). Repeated injections are necessary because those agents are absorbed into the body.
Costs for 1 session 1 site(6cc): $650 Hyaluronic acid:$1000
Botox: $600 or more
