REVIVE PRP FACIAL
The Benefits of Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)
What is PRP?
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) in a Revive PRP Facial is an autologous concentrated preparation of platelets and the associated growth factors in a small volume of plasma. Platelets are a natural source of a number of growth factors in their natural and biologically-determined ratios.
What do Platelets do?
Platelets release growth factors which regulate the healing cascade by signaling to surrounding cells to repair damaged tissue and regenerate new tissue. Key growth factors involved in this process include but are not limited to:
- Platelet-Derived Growth Factor (PDGF)
- Transforming Growth Factor group (TGF)
- Epidermal Growth Factor (EGF)
- Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor (VEGF)
- Fibroblast Growth Factor (FGF)
- Keratinocyte Growth Factor (KGF)
Revive PRP Facial
The Revive PRP Facial begins with a simple blood draw and spin in the Eclipse centrifuge allowing us to collect the highest concentration of platelet rich plasma from your own blood. This growth factor rich portion of your blood is then introduced to the skin with microneedling. Collagen stimulation, improvement of fine lines, wrinkles, and acne scarring are some of the benefits from PRP in combination with microneedling. We recommend starting with a consultation with one of our skin experts.
