The Science Behind PRP Therapy
PRP therapy enhances the results of many treatments. At Serrão Rejuvenation Center, Dr. John Serrão, a board certified gynecologist and post-graduate trained cosmetic surgeon, offers PRP therapy for men and women in Orlando, Winter Park and the surrounding areas of Florida.
Natural Beauty is in the Blood
The internal essence of the blood inside you contains life giving fundamental protein growth factors that are designed to restore and strengthen your body. PRP Rejuvenation Technology harnesses a high concentration of your own biological nutrient rich cells and unleashes them to naturally promote skin health by stimulating a rebuilding of the underlying structural integrity of your skin. The platelet rich plasma is harvested from you and then transformed into a Platelet Rich Fibrin Matrix (PRFM) that is the essential element of the PRP Rejuvenation Technology.
What is PRFM?
Normally, in response to tissue damage anywhere in the body, platelets collect at the site of injury and release at least seven different growth factors. The platelets also cause production of growth factors, a gel-like material called a “matrix” which holds the growth factors in place until healing takes place. Without the matrix, the growth factors would simply wash away in the blood stream and be of little use. But when held in place, these factors stimulate multi-potent stem cells to develop into new tissue and blood vessels to repair that tissue.
Because these multi-potent stem cells have the capacity to develop into whatever cell type is required to repair the injury, the body is able to regenerate the necessary cells to simulate the growth of new, healthy tissue. Causing the growth of this new tissue in planned areas of the face, without an actual injury, creates a new appearance. Injecting the materials in a planned way to give a predictable and improved result (not just more volume) is the PRP Facelift.
The platelets are tricked into thinking the body has been injured and so create a rejuvenating elixir.
Platelet activation to make PRFM is used by physicians for such diverse treatments in orthopedics and in reducing the appearance of scars and stretch marks, healing burns, and fostering dental regrowth. Only recently has PRFM been used to improve the appearance of the face and skin.
PRFM is like a gel, similar to the other fillers, and can be injected to sculpt the face – – and it came from your body. But, here’s the best part: not only does PRFM cause an increase in the volume, but also PRFM acts like a rejuvenating agent with growth factors normally used by your body in healing. This safe and effective procedure is FDA cleared.
Investigate the Science…
When the growth factors activate the potent stem cells of the skin, then the potent stem cells generate New Skin, New Blood Flow, New Collagen–New Tissue! Not only do you see more volume (as with other fillers), but you see truly younger skin!
