NEW: Hands-On Injectables Training In Houston By Dr. Katz

Should You Be Using PRP Instead of Dermal Fillers?

The short answer – you should be using both! According to this journal article by Dr. Daniel Sister, combining Platelet-Rich Plasma with Hyaluronic Acid fillers delivers 100% success rate with enhanced results while minimizing the numbers of injections needed. And with the new DrPRP Plasma-Fill™ Bio-Filler Maker Machine, you can opt for 100% PRP fillers when patients request to go all-organic.

Here’s why this is important:

  1. PRP fillers are natural and organic: The dermal fillers produced by Plasma-Fill™ comes from autologous blood, so it’s 100% natural and over time, the product will dissolve into the blood stream without unwanted consequences.
  2. Enhanced skin rejuvenation: The growth factors contained in PRP are known to promote the production of collagen so its not only about volume but skin rejuvenation is a key result unlike synthetic fillers.
  3. Healthy skin, less blemishes: Being a healing agent, PRP adds a touch of healing into the mix so that if there are acne blemishes, excessive dryness or even minor scars, those are more likely see improvement giving the treatment a great value for money.
  4. Save patient’s money: Stocking big brand synthetic fillers can be very damaging to your cash-flow as well as your patient’s wallet. That’s why we’re seeing PRP filler adoption at a record rate. It’s a no-brainer. There is expensive and side-effects-prone artificial stuff and the organic and cheaper alternative for pretty much the same results. Even though we may have to rely on synthetic fillers for certain cases, the cases you opt for PRP fillers will offset the costs significantly.

Exclusive Hands-On Training For Physicians In Houston

Handling PRP dermal fillers is different compared to traditional hyaluronic acid fillers – for example, prp fillers need to handled at room temperature or higher at all times and they have to be injected with a different type of needle. And there’s more fine tuning to be done if you want consistent better results and patient satisfaction. That’s why we’re excited to partner with one of the best cosmetic surgeons in the field, Dr. Howard Katz to offer you the training you need to achieve mastery in this arena.

Three PRP Treatments Revolutionizing Skincare
Three PRP Treatments That Are Revolutionizing Skincare

While there are thousands of skincare centers nationwide offering at least one PRP treatment for their customers, most of them doesn’t go beyond the PRP Micro-needling treatment popularized by Kim Kardashian. The reason is – it is the simplest of all Platelet-Rich Plasma aesthetic treatments around and also the most sought-after treatment. This is all good until they realize the immense potential of PRP treatments. What they’re missing out on is the fact that once you’ve made the investment for Platelet-Rich Plasma which includes a centrifuge, PRP kits and staff training, they can start offering a whole suite of treatments for their clients.

Three PRP Treatments Revolutionizing Skincare

Platelet-Rich Plasma’s Quiet Revolution In The Skincare World

One great thing about PRP treatments is that the protocol for obtaining high quality Platelet-Rich Plasma is the same regardless of its application. Whether its joint injuries, osteoarthritis, bone healing, spinal disc regeneration or skin rejuvenation, the process is the same: draw up to 20cc blood from the patient, place it into the centrifuge which concentrates the platelets and then draw out the Platelet-Rich Plasma for immediate application. This simple process coupled with PRP’s vast scope of healing makes it one of the most significant advances in modern medicine. In fact, one physician, Dr. Lewis Maharam M.D. aka The Running Doc, who regularly writes for New York Daily News calls it “the greatest innovation since the invention of MRI.”

That applies to skincare as well. The Platelet-Rich Plasma you obtain from your clients can be used for a number of treatments, the demand for which are only growing. Here are a few ideas – these are probably the most popular/cutting-edge PRP treatments performed by dermatologists and plastic surgeons.

1. Facial Skin Augmentation With Fillers

The topical application of Platelet-Rich Plasma with Micro-needling can help regenerate the degrading skin cells and promote collagen production to keep skin plump and supple. This basic process may be enough for some of your clients. But those who’re looking for more than just skin rejuvenation, you may have to go deeper. To augment the face with natural, feminine volume, you’re going to have to inject Platelet-Rich Plasma deeper into the dermis. This will supply the growth factors to the degraded dermal tissues under the surface.

For volume though, you’ll need a filler. You can either go for a Platelet-Poor Plasma (PPP) based filler (PPP is the left-over from the Platelet-Rich Plasma process – you can read about the process in detail here.) or you can use any Hyaluronic Acid filler like Restylane Lyft.

This combination injection treatment has been proven to work well. One study by Dr. Daniel Sister analyzes the effect of a combination of platelet rich plasma, hyaluronic acid, and succinic acid for facial augmentation. The treatment showed 100% success rate.

The combination treatment seems to be evolving into a new standard in facial augmentation. It’s definitely seeing growing demand.

2. RePigmentation And Vitiligo Correction With CO2 Laser

Companies spend millions of dollars on research to turn defective cells healthy and to increase the skin’s collagen production. They are looking into DNA technology to pull this off. But adding Platelet-Rich Plasma to existing treatment methods may be a simple and effective way to achieve the same results. Scientists from Cairo, Egypt had recently proven that adding PRP injections to fractional CO2 laser treatment for correcting vitiligo can boost the results by 4X compared to just using the laser alone. This is great news because given that CO2 laser can also be used to treat facial wrinkles, age spots, and acne scars, it seems we can significantly boost the results by combining it with PRP injections.

And if PRP is capable of boosting the effects of CO2 lasers, chances are, it can do the same for some of the other facial resurfacing treatments that you already offer your clients. Isn’t that an amazing opportunity… to offer the same treatments you’ve been administering for years – but only this time it’s significantly more effective with a secret biologic hack? Hundreds of skincare clinics are just doing that. It’s time to get on the bandwagon and start surprising your clients.

Three PRP Treatments Revolutionizing Skincare

As one of our friend-clinic owner says, PRP treatments have been a big boon to the business (PRP treatment has a 100% “worth it” rating on real self) as even people who’d had total skin resurfacing have responded well with it.

3. Hair Rejuvenation With Auto-injection

Mesotherapy is a well-known treatment that uses painless micro-injections for delivering active ingredients evenly to skin surface. This novel procedure has a reputation for improving the quality results obtained by traditional skin rejuvenation substances like vitamins and peptides. And as many skincare clinics have discovered, there could never have been a more synergistic technology than this for Platelet-Rich Plasma. The Meso Gun, as we call it, can be used to deliver an even amount of Platelet-Rich Plasma to the face, neck, chest, and hands for rejuvenation and reduction of wrinkles and discoloration, to thighs and tummy for treatment of cellulite and stretch marks, and to the scalp for the treatment of hair loss.

The big winner from this pairing of technologies is the hair loss treatment. Platelet-Rich Plasma when administered on the scalp using Mesotherapy works as an “elixir for hair growth” – and here’s a recent peer-reviewed study on Stemcell investigation journal that confirms this. Hair loss treatment is one of the examples where PRP treatment has exceeded the expectations set by the industry.

That’s why we believe this is one of the treatments that every skincare clinic should offer. Hair-loss and thinning of hair affects both men and women and is one of the most popular cause of worry for your clients. It complements the skincare treatments you offer and you’ll see many of your clients thanking you for that.

Contact us at (844) 377-7787 for more information on the Mesotherapy gun.

If You’ve Never Heard Of These PRP Treatments

Some of these treatments are so new – you may have never heard of them before. And that’s a sign that you should offer them immediately. If you have joined the Platelet-Rich Plasma bandwagon, it’s only intuitive to expand your offerings from just a PRP-micro-needling treatment to these in-demand procedures. You can do this with very little changes, if any, to your existing Platelet-Rich Plasma setup. And chances are they will pair well with other treatments you offer whether it’s Kybella injections, Photo laser treatments or dermal fillers.

And if you aren’t offering Platelet-Rich Plasma yet, this post illustrates a whole lot of reasons why you should be. The demand is only getting stronger. The earlier you join, the more you’re likely to prosper from this incredible breakthrough of modern medical science.

DrPRPUSA-8-POINT-PLATELET-RICH PLASMA FACELIFT
How To Perform A Low-Cost Platelet-Rich Plasma Facelift

As any face-lift-performing cosmetic surgeon quickly learns, a surgical facelift procedure is a hard-sell even for those who are desperate for it. The entire process is a challenge not just in your surgical skills but also in your knowledge of facial geometry. That’s why the simpler, more low-cost and natural procedures like Platelet-Rich Plasma Facelift has become very popular these days.

The procedure, sometimes called sexy names by fake “inventors” to extract licensing fees from you, is actually capable of delivering surgical-facelift-level results minus the side-effects, failure-risks or downtime.

More and more clients are minimizing their risks by choosing autologous materials for soft-tissue augmentation in their face – and Platelet-Rich Plasma Facelift is a proven procedure with good predictability.

For millions of Americans who admire the results of “facelift” but are very afraid of the procedure, this is a god-sent.

Why Platelet-Rich Plasma Facelift

The Platelet-Rich Plasma Facelift has many advantages over traditional facelifts but none is more enticing than that the carefree nature of the procedure — anyone can have it on a hot sunny afternoon and wake up the next day feeling like a million dollars.

  • It is a better alternative to neurotoxins like Botox
  • No allergy testing in required
  • Reasonably long lasting results (12 months or more)
  • Low cost and high-profit procedure
  • Can be combined with micro-needling and laser treatments
  • Painless and stress-free patient experience
  • Improves skin tone and texture without additional treatments
  • Completely non-invasive and no downtime

And the market rate is about $500 to $1,500 per area. A full face procedure will run into a couple of thousand dollars.

Who Is The Platelet-Rich Plasma Facelift For?

For those who want a youthful, firm yet soft look but are freaked out about the lumps with synthetic fillers or those not willing to do fat transfer surgery, Platelet-Rich Plasma Facelift is an excellent procedure. It can be used to restore volume in 8 strategic areas similar to the 8-point lift at a relatively low cost.

This procedure is suitable for patients who’re looking to reduce the appearance of…

  • Sagging or dropping face – a sign of aging related to volume loss
  • Dark circles or tired looking eyes
  • Wrinkles and sagging jowls along the mouth and jawline
  • Nasolabial folds or “laugh lines” on the corners of the mouth

When done the right way, Platelet-Rich Plasma creates a beautiful, naturally lifted look with almost zero risk for physicians as well as patients.

How To Perform a Platelet-Rich Plasma Lift

The most easiest way to do the Platelet-Rich Plasma Lift is by injecting autologous Platelet-Rich Plasma Fibrin Matrix intradermally or subdermally below the affected areas. Researchers have proven again and again that injecting PRFM works wonders for wrinkles and folds. One such study is here.

Preparation of Platelet-Rich Fibrin Matrix

Platelet-Rich Fibrin Matrix (PRFM) does not rely on host tissue fibrotic response to produce volume enhancements – therefore it has more potential to offer sustained results compared to just plain Platelet-Rich Plasma. PRFM delivers more viable, under-granulated growth-factor-loaded platelets through a three dimensional fibrin matrix.

The preparation of PRFM is simple as explained below.

Platelet-Rich Plasma Facelift

  • Load a 20cc syringe with 3cc anti-coagulant ACD-A.
  • Prime the needle until the ACD-A is at the tip of the needle.
  • Draw 17cc of the blood into the syringe. Be sure you mix the blood and ACD-A by tilting the tube up and down a couple of times.
  • Inject the blood sample into the DrPRP kit, a closed Platelet-Rich Plasma separation tube. Make sure that it is only filled till the 20cc mark on the tube and nothing more.
  • Place the filled DrPRP tube into the centrifuge and place a counterweight directly across it.
  • Set the rotation at 3400rpm and the timer for 4 minutes.
  • At the end of the run, the Platelets and the Plasma will be on the top chamber of the tube and the Red blood Cells on the other end. Push the bottom on the tube to sequester the platelets and the Plasma. The platelets will be sedimented at the bottom of the top chamber of the tube.
  • Using a 10cc syringe with a long needle take out about 6cc of the Platelet-Poor Plasma (PPP) from the top chamber slowly (without shaking it) leaving 4 cc at the base. Keep this PPP handy, you’ll need it later.
  • Shake and mix the remaining 4 cc – this is the Platelet-Rich Plasma.
  • Load and prime another 10cc syringe with the coagulation activator 0.08cc 10% Calcium Chloride. (Take a 1 cc syringe marked off in tenths, fill up four out of five little tick-marks between 0 and the first tenth mark and that’s 0.08cc)
  • Draw the 4cc Platelet-Rich Plasma into the syringe with Calcium Chloride. You have got about 4cc of PRFM now.

You can inject the PRFM with injected intra-dermally using a 30-gauge needle or sub-dermally using a 27-gauge needle within 10 minutes – this is the time period that PRFM can remain in liquid form up after coming in contact with calcium chloride.

Once injected, the combination of Calcium Chloride and body temperature will start the polymerization of Platelet-Rich Fibrin Matrix and a natural filler will be formed in the injected area.

The 8-Point Platelet-Rich Plasma Lift With PlasmaFill™

For certain clients who need a substantial increase in volume while gaining a tightened look, you can combine the Platelet-Rich Plasma Fibrin with Platelet-Rich Filler or PlasmaFill™ using this device. This device turns Platelet-Poor Plasma (the 6cc byproduct that we drew out earlier while creating Platelet-Rich Fibrin Matrix) into autologous dermal fillers in a couple of minutes.

It’s an easy to use device. Just insert the syringe filled with Platelet-Poor Plasma into one of the holes in the device, tweak the settings (if needed) and start the process. The PPP will turn into dermal fillers soon.

A couple of things to note about the Plasma Fillers.

  • The Plasma fillers should be maintained at body temperature or slightly higher because lower temperatures will make it too viscous.
  • You must first anesthetize the injection area with a 25-gauge needle containing 0.2ml of Articaine.
  • The PlasmaFiller should be injected using 1″ or shorter 23 Gauge needle or cannula through the same puncture hole. Do not use longer cannula as the material is quite thick.

The Plasma Filler can be injected into the standard 8-point areas which includes…

  • Upper cheek bone area (1 & 2): Inject here to enhance the cheek and tightens the face.
  • Tear trough and mid-face (3): Inject here to reduce the appearance of tired hollows under the eyes.
  • Nasolabial folds next to nose (4): Inject here to create a more youthful look by reducing laugh lines.
  • Corner of the mouth (5): Inject here to iron out the Marionette lines and create a happier look.
  • Lower jawbone area (6): Inject here to replace the volume in the pre-jowl area and lift the jowls.
  • Upper jawbone area (7): Inject here to increase the squareness or angle of the jaw and eliminate sagging.
  • Lower cheek or buccal area (8): Inject here to restore the natural curve and structure of the cheek.

DrPRPUSA-8-POINT-PLATELET-RICH PLASMA FACELIFT

After you’ve done the procedure, you’ll notice that combining Platelet-Rich Fibrin Matrix with Plasma Filler gives your clients a softer, more flexible outlook compared to the rigid puffy structure obtained through synthetic fillers. And since it is completely autologous your clients need not worry about firmness, swelling, lumps/bumps, bruising, itching, or dis-colouration.

The only disadvantage of Platelet-Rich Plasma Facelift

Perhaps, the only disadvantage of the Platelet-Rich Plasma Facelift is the time it takes to prepare the filling materials. The ready-made synthetic fillers and neurotoxins are a physician’s dream – just rip off the plastic and inject them – but not so much their clients. More and more Americans now prefer autologous non-surgical methods over synthetic stuff.

However, this disadvantage is more than offset by the significant cost saving this method offers. Plus the clients will actually be happy to see the work done by physician or their staff in preparing the materials. They relish looking at how their own blood is being processed and returned to their bodies to help them look younger and more attractive.

So we don’t think this is actually a disadvantage. On the contrary, it can be a huge plus point.

Platelet-Rich Plasma Facelift

The Role of Growth Factors

A significant advantage of Platelet-Rich Plasma Facelift is the presence of growth factors in the fillers. Growth factors are natural substances in the body that is capable of triggering an increase in the production of endothelial cells and fibroblasts. The Platelet-Rich Fibrin Matrix is a 3-dimensional cross-linked fibrin matrix that binds both platelets and GFs enabling a sustained release of growth factors over about 7 days.

The growth factors are one reason why we suggest you add Micro-needling as part of the Platelet-Rich Plasma Facelift – Micro-needling triggers a healing response and the influx of autologous growth factors accelerates and deepens the healing job.

Platelet-Rich Plasma Facelift

Add Micro-needling to Complete the Platelet-Rich Plasma Facelift

Add a combination of Micro-needling and topical Platelet-Rich Plasma application to the Platelet-Rich Plasma Facelift and you’ll create stunning results comparable to ANY other premium treatments in the market at a fraction of the cost. Micro-needling works by triggering the skin to enter healing mode and create a significant amount of new collagen and elastic fibers. Adding Platelet-Rich Plasma only makes the results better.

Note that it’s totally fine to have both Micro-needling + Platelet-Rich Plasma and Platelet-Rich Plasma Facelift all done on the same day as long as you do the fillers after the micro-needling.

Platelet-Rich Plasma Facelift

How does the combined procedure look like?

This combined Platelet-Rich Plasma Facelift procedure will give your clients the maximum benefits with almost no downtime. And is by far, the best non-surgical, autologous treatment you can offer your clients. PERIOD.

  • The client arrives at the appointed time, fills out the consent forms and receives local anesthetic in the treatment room. (5 minutes)
  • About 20cc or more blood is drawn from the client and injected into the DrPRP kit which is then spun in a centrifuge to get PRP and PPP. The PRP is then turned into PRFM and the PPP into Plasma Filler. (20 minutes)
  • While this is done, the client undergoes Micro-needling procedure. (15-20 minutes)
  • A small portion of the platelet serum is smeared on the just-micro-needled face. (1 minute)
  • The Plasma Filler and PRFM is then injected into the client’s face by following the 8-point facelift system. (10 minutes)
  • A peptide mask is given to soothe the client’s face. (10 minutes)
A Significant Profit Generator

The entire procedure as described above is the recipe for non-surgical autologous facelift procedure that delivers an array of benefits to the patients namely:

  • Reduce appearance of wrinkles, sun spots, unwanted veins and other signs of aging.
  • Correct minor skin imperfections, marks, acne scars and other blemishes.
  • Lift the areas with wrinkles, sagging skin or jowls.
  • Reduce the appearance of frown lines, forehead creases, nasolabial folds and thick bands in the neck.
  • Regenerate new skin on the face replacing the older damaged layers to improve complexion and smoothness.
  • Restore the natural volume in cheek, jaw and under-eye areas and tighten the entire face.

As you can see this is a complete facelift that thousands of Americans would happily pay thousands of dollars for. According to American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, just in the year 2016 alone, Americans spent a whopping $6.6 billion dollars on in-office non-surgical skin rejuvenation procedures like Photo Rejuvenation, Dermal Fillers, Skin Tightening, And Neurotoxins.

Now the Platelet-Rich Plasma Facelift as described above is a single treatment that has the potential to deliver the whole spectrum of results that Americans paid $6.6 billion for.

In other words, it’s a no-brainer that you should ride the non-surgical wave.

Typical price for this type of full facelift procedure that can be performed in an hour is about $2400. And since much of the raw materials are directly obtained from the client’s blood, you save on costs big time.

Just don’t call your procedure “vampire” or else you will receive a letter from one Dr. Runels’ claiming royalties.

The Skincare Clinic Owner’s Guide To Platelet-Rich Plasma

Despite the recent trends, Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is still hugely under represented by the aesthetic community. The fact is, it’s a holy grail in the field – nothing else this non-invasive, non-surgical and pain-free can achieve the same home-run in terms of results that PRP swiftly delivers after just one 45-minute session performed in-office. Nothing else capitalizes on the natural healing properties of the human body.

Plus PRP can be a huge profit maximizer too.

SKIN CARE CLINIC OWNER'S GUIDE TO PLATELET-RICH PLASMA

Lowest Cost To You – But Same Results For Patients

While your competitors depend on high-priced brand name products that gobbles up their profit margins, you could use the cheapest yet effective solution ever – your patient’s own blood. And laugh all the way to the bank.

But that doesn’t mean you should stop using those other products. Platelet-Rich Plasma may not have the sex appeal that many of the other aesthetic products have. That’s why it’s a great idea to combine your existing off-the-shelf procedures and methods with Platelet-Rich Plasma.

Injectable treatments like fillers and neurotoxins as well as other treatments like fat transfers, micro-needles, topical serums, and even lasers can be used in conjunction with PRP.

It enhances the results but adds only marginally to the cost of goods.

That’s why we’re seeing tremendous uptick in PRP adoption among skincare clinics.

Why Aren’t Skincare Clinics Adding PRP?

The first obvious hurdle is the investment needed to get started. You’d spend maybe a 1000 or 2000 dollars on equipments which can include a centrifuge and a Plasma Fill™ device. But as many of our successful clients would say it’s a no-brainer. The investment can be recouped in just 2-4 treatments. Then it’s mostly profit. Cost of PRP treatments range from $800 to $1500. And this price point is here to stay that way because the results generated by these PRP are comparable to those equally priced “traditional” treatments like Botox, Dysport or Xeomin. Hence most skincare clinics immediately see a bump in their revenue when they add PRP to their practice.

SKIN CARE CLINIC OWNER'S GUIDE TO PLATELET-RICH PLASMA

Second is that the owners believe they have to go through a lengthy qualification process to do the procedure. Don’t get me wrong, you have to be qualified. But the process is much more simpler than most think. For the person licensed to do these procedures, the entire learning can be completed online through a video course that awards up to 6.75 CME credit hours. This can make you confident in doing a variety of treatments including PRP-enhanced Facelift, PRP-enhanced Facial with Micro-needling, PRP Hair Restoration, PRP Breast Rejuvenation, PRP Hand Rejuvenation as well as PRP Scar Rejuvenation.

The Unquestionable Strength of Platelet-Rich Plasma

PRP has the advantage of being able to stimulate both superficial and deep dermis layers. Platelet-Rich Plasma Injections to the superficial dermis is done just like mesotherapy to improve skin texture, increase smoothness and to add volume to the skin surface. PRP Injections to the deep dermis layers can function as a filler. Thus Platelet-Rich Plasma can act as both a skin rejuvenation agent and a skin volumnisation agent at the same time.

In addition to all this, there is the healing power of the growth factor present in the PRP. So we’re seeing patients having other pleasant “side effects” like healing of tissue defects. For example, patients who had genital PRP for urinary stress incontinence were surprised by the increase in sexual drive they experienced.

All of these results are obtained with ZERO RISK. And unlike Botox, the results will look completely natural. And many physicians are now seeing the best ever outcomes for their procedures after combining it with PRP.

Isn’t that what you want for your clients?

SKIN CARE CLINIC OWNER'S GUIDE TO PLATELET-RICH PLASMA

The Top 5 Treatments Using Platelet-Rich Plasma

1. Wrinkles and Folds

Unlike Hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers, like Restylane and Juvederm which are solids, PRP is composed of liquid blood components that are easily absorbed and penetrates deeper into the skin. Thus it is safe and effective for use on deep cheek indentations, under eye hollows and the neck areas for a more youthful looking face. However, HA fillers can be effective in filling individual deeper wrinkles and there is nothing preventing you from using both PRP and HA to accomplish an amazing result. Another procedure that PRP goes well with is the fat transfer procedure where the growth factors in PRP can help retain the “aliveness” of the injected fat and thus helps prolong the results.

It’s a good practice to add a layer of PRP on top of regular fillers to not only provide an instant fill or volume correction but also to improve skin tone and texture through regeneration. This set up prolongs the effectiveness of the filler by up to 50% – or 3 to 6 months longer – than when the fillers are used alone. PRP can also combined with neuromodulators and fractional ablative lasers. Plus patients who don’t want to use gel fillers can benefit from PRP as it can stimulate the body to make a small amount of its own ‘filler.’

2. Rejuvenation

Platelet-Rich Plasma can be used with Lasers and Radio Frequency devices to deliver a smoother, more rejuvenated look for your clients. The benefit of adding PRP is that the activated platelets in the PRP stimulates the production of natural collagen which enhances the results that your patients get. It also accelerates the healing of the skin from the adverse effects of lasers much faster than using just topical post-care treatments. PRP also reduces the redness of the face much quicker.

3. Resurfacing

If you thought Micro-needling was great for skin resurfacing, the results can be much, much better when combined with Platelet-Rich Plasma. This procedure, made famous by Kim Kardashian and other celebrities, is one of the most sought-after treatments in dermatology. It’s perfect for facial regions that require deeper perforation as well as delicate regions like the area around the eyes. The combination treatment is a match made in aesthetic heaven – because it produces massive amounts of collagen in the skin leading to smoother, firmer and noticeably younger-looking skin. It produces great results in terms of reducing the appearance of imperfections like stretch marks. The micro needling breaks up the fibrous tissues of the skin and the PRP promotes the growth of new, healthy tissues.

4. Hair Regeneration

Just days ago, a new study has revealed that when 5% minoxidil solution was combined with PRP, it showed more improvements in hair regrowth for female patients with androgenetic alopecia than without PRP. This is just one of the few cases. The New York hair restoration specialist Dr. Amiya Prasad, M.D has consistently proven that adding PRP with extracellular matrix (ECM) can work wonders to thinning hair. The beauty of PRP for hair regeneration is that the patients need only ONE treatment to see impressive results. And only a small minority of patients will need a second treatment, usually after 18 months.

5. Scar Revision

Ok, this is not really a domain of Platelet-Rich Plasma since PRP injections alone cannot revise a scar. However, researchers have shown us that a combination of autologous PRP along with LED phototherapy at 830 nm is an excellent treatment for scars. That is really just a start. There are other PRP-combination procedures for scars like the use of PRP bio-fillers using this device as well as PRP and micro-needling using this device. Subcision is another procedure that works well with PRP for re-plumping areas of lost volume or depressed scars.

SKIN CARE CLINIC OWNER'S GUIDE TO PLATELET-RICH PLASMA

Warning:PRP may produce no aesthetic result if practitioners don’t follow guidelines

There are three kinds of PRP that you can develop: The Pure PRP (Leucocyte-Poor Platelet-Rich Plasma), L-PRP (Leucocyte and Platelet-Rich Plasma) and PRF (Platelet-Rich Fibrin). Pure PRP and L-PRP are PRP with a low density of fibrin network obtained by adding a small amount of anti-coagulant to the tube prior to blood collection. Most medical applications require the L-PRP for best results. And there are some specific conditions which warrant the use of PRF (either P-PRF or L-PRF), a preparation that has a high density of fibrin network. Whichever ones you choose, there are specific protocols for getting an ideal output each time you do it. Failure to follow the protocols may result in sub-optimal results for your clients and tarnishing of the image your clients have of Platelet-Rich Plasma.

Plus, there are a few contraindications for PRP that you need to keep in mind including the following:

  1. Sepsis of the blood
  2. Cancer and chemotherapy
  3. Critical low blood platelet count
  4. Deficiency of fibrinogen
  5. Abnormal or unstable blood pressure
  6. Anticoagulation therapy
  7. Acute and chronic infections
  8. Skin diseases
  9. Chronic liver disease
  10. Severe metabolic and systemic disorders
  11. Heavy nicotine, drug, and alcohol consumption
  12. And the use of anti-inflammatory drugs within 2 weeks from the date of PRP injection

Plus, there is a list of medications that affect the function of platelets. They should be stopped at least 10 days before and after a PRP procedure. Even stuff like Advil, a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug used to treat pain and fever, can affect the regenerative power of platelets.

The bottomline is – a number of growth factors are released from the platelets into the body through PRP – and care must be taken to make sure none of that will go wasted either through inefficient process or through incompatible bodily conditions.

If you ensure that, you will be like one of our clients who came back to us saying, “Hey, we’re seeing amazing results for all of our existing procedures after adding PRP. Thanks for that!”

PRP Treatments For Women
3 Super PRP Treatments That Can Make A Boss Out Of Any Woman

Holiday or not, women need to be in control. Of themselves. And their situations.

It almost becomes a rule for anyone wishing to have an oh-so-merry shopping experience and quality time with their loved ones during the holidays.

Sure, there are plenty of tips you’ll come across online when you Google — that can sprinkle a little bit of that “planning” fairy’s dust — but ultimately the outcome depends on your confidence level.

One way to skyrocket confidence in women… that’s known to work almost like precision every single time… is a shift in the perception of their own bodies. It doesn’t have to be a dramatic makeover. For a woman, even a whole-hearted feeling that her body is working the way it should be puts her mind at ease.

So what can we do? You probably read it in the title of the post — PRP treatments.

PRP Treatments — Fast-Acting Yet 100% Natural

What women love about it

  • It’s safe and natural, absolutely no side-effects. (Except if you have rare contraindicated conditions)
  • Obvious results can be seen in 2-3 weeks. Almost all women see results.
  • Minimally invasive and no dosage limits. Can be done almost any number of times.
  • Absolutely no down time — all done and ready in 45 minutes.
  • You’re just taking advantage of your own body’s healing mechanism

3 Super PRP Treatments

The Trifecta Treatments For Immediate Confidence

One doctor who’s pioneered PRP treatments for women is Dr. Lisbeth Roy, DO. She recommends what she calls the trifecta of the hottest of hot natural anti-aging treatments with PRP — Platelet-Rich Plasma Facelift, Platelet-Rich Plasma for Sexual Regeneration, and Platelet-Rich Plasma Breast Lift — that when combined has produced amazing results for her clients.

Here’s one of her clients’ video

If you’d like to know more, Dr. Roy wrote an entire blog post about it. You can read it here.

Dr Lisbeth Roy DO

Should you offer Platelet-Rich Plasma for your patients?

Dr. Lisbeth is a massive proponent of regenerative medicine and she’s been advocating it for sexual health for quite some time now. And she believes you could be doing a great disservice if you are not offering your patients procedures like the Platelet-Rich Plasma Injection For Women’s Sexual Regeneration . Here’s a video where she says why you should offer it to your clients.

Happy holidays. 🙂

Platelet-rich Plasma For Skin Rejuvenation & Anti-Aging
Platelet-Rich Plasma Injections For Face: The Good, The Bad & The Ugly

A procedure that has been used successfully for years to heal sports injuries is now becoming the treatment of choice by women to improve the appearance of wrinkles, scars, sun damage and even dark circles under their eyes.

The treatment, Platelet-Rich Plasma, is gaining in popularity for the same reasons athletes chose it: because of its organic nature and because it works. It uses plasma taken from the patient’s own blood instead of chemicals injected into the body. The possibility of side effects is practically nonexistent because the body is unlikely to reject its own blood.

The treatment has become popularly known as the Platelet-Rich Plasma Facelift thanks to one celebrity, Kim Kardashian, who tried and recommended the procedure, and gave it its nickname.

Scientific Proof

The National Institutes of Health website cites several articles from peer-reviewed medical journals on studies of the Platelet-Rich Plasma Facelift procedure.

One such study, published by the Journal of Drugs in Dermatology in its May, 2010 issue, took place over a three-month period. Twenty-three patients were treated once every month. The mixture of PRP and an activating agent was injected into standard injection points on the face and neck.

The study participants were photographed both before and after their treatments with medical imaging devices, a dermoscope, and a digital camera. A month after the final treatment, the patients came back for a final evaluation. Based on all the scores, the study concluded that results were satisfactory, the treatment is effective and that the patients who participated experienced no serious or persistent side effects. Several other studies are also on the website.

Real Results

The majority of the women who reviewed their own Platelet-Rich Plasma Facelift on the website RealSelf.com say they are happy with their results. The RealSelf website allows women to share their experiences with cosmetic surgery and ask questions that are answered by doctors. The reviewers also rate their own doctors. One reviewer said her results were still lasting three months after she had the injections. Another said her face was still glowing and her skin was still tighter five weeks after her treatment. A 54-year-old woman in New York opted for PRP for Face instead of Botox after hearing too many negative stories about the latter treatment. She said she noticed a difference in her face and was happy with the way it looked.

Platelet-Rich Plasma & Microneedling

Combining PRP With Microneedling For Even Better Results

A study in the Journal of Cutaneous and Aesthetic Surgery compared the results of two different combination treatments. The first combination paired PRP with a treatment called Microneedling, which is collagen induction therapy. This combination was compared to Microneedling paired with Vitamin C. The treatments were conducted on patients with acne scars.

Thirty patients ages 18 to 34 participated in the 2013 study, and received four treatments each, with an interval of four weeks between each treatment. The right side of each patient’s face was treated with the PRP combo and the left side with the Vitamin C combination. To be included in the study, the scarring from acne had to be rated with a Grade II, III or IV on the Goodman and Baron scale. Digital photos of both sides of each patient’s face were taken before the treatments began and after they were concluded using the same positions, lighting and background.

The acne scars were again graded using the Goodman and Baron scale after treatments. Both patients and doctors rated the improvement and change of grade of the acne scars. All the results were entered into Microsoft Excel database and analyzed using standard statistical methods. Of the 30 patients, the scars of 23 were reduced by one or two grades with the PRP combination.

If you’re not using PRP and Microneedling you’re missing out

Most women who have tried the combination of collagen and PRP have given the treatment good to excellent reviews. One plastic surgeon who administers the treatment to her patients had it done herself and highly recommends it. Dr. Lisa Zdinak, chief surgeon at Precision Aesthetics, said the plasma in the PRP stimulates the patient’s stem cells naturally and “wakes them up” causing them to produce more collagen, which is what makes the skin more youthful. Zdinak said the plasma contains molecules and proteins that provide nutrients to the skin’s cells, so it’s the healthiest, most natural way to improve the appearance of wrinkles, scars and other effects of aging. Coupled with additional collagen, which is also natural to the body, it’s even more effective.

Precautions to be taken

Most doctors who administer PRP treatments ice their patients’ faces immediately following the procedure to minimize the temporary bruising that can occur at the injection points. Icing will also help minimize any swelling or skin irritation for patients who have sensitive skin. All these effects are temporary and are almost always gone within a few days.

Patients with sensitive skin may need to take extra precautions recommended by their doctors. Allow sufficient intervals between the treatments so the skin has time to heal itself. Too many microneedling procedures too close together can cause swelling and even skin infection.

Platelet-Rich Plasma & Fractional Laser

Combining PRP with Fractional Laser

Twenty-two women participated in a study, published by the American Society of Dermatologic Surgery, that combined PRP with Fractional Laser treatments to analyze the effects on rejuvenating their skin. Eleven had a topical application of PRP along with three Fractional laser treatments, while the other 11 just had three Fractional Laser treatments alone. The patients were evaluated both before they were treated and 30 days after their treatments. Several different types of assessments were employed, including blind clinical evaluations, patient satisfaction and even biopsies of the skin. The results showed that skin rejuvenation was better with PRP, and patient satisfaction was higher with PRP compared to Fractional Laser alone.

PRP’s Effects Are Lasting

Women who have had the Platelet-Rich Plasma Facelift treatment find their faces look even better several months after they have had the treatments. That’s because the plasma stimulates their skin’s stem cells to produce more collagen, grow new cells and literally rejuvenate their skin. The new cell growth in your skin generated by the Platelet Rich Plasma takes weeks to months, which is why it looks so much better after more time passes. Botox and other filler treatments break down with time, but the Platelet Rich Plasma lasts and looks better as long as 18 months to two years. The FDA has not imposed regulations on the use of PRP because it come from the patient’s own body and is not a drug. The use of PRP with other substances and some systems that prepare the PRP for use have been FDA cleared, so make certain the one your doctor recommends is one of them.

Regenerative Medicine: Why There’s No Bad Side Effects With It

Platelet Rich Plasma literally stimulates new cell growth in the patient’s body wherever it is injected. It helps the body heal itself the natural way without using chemicals or foreign substances of any kind. The possibility of an allergic reaction or infection is almost nil because the plasma comes from the patient’s own body.
