Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) in Aurora Denver, CO
Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP)
The human body is a complex but miraculous creation. It has the ability to heal, rebuild, and regenerate living cells all within itself. PRP has made it possible to enhance the body’s natural healing process while increasing new cell regeneration using what we already have in our own body.
What is PRP?
PRP (Platelet-Rich Plasma) is found in all of our blood. It is simply the concentration of human platelets in a small volume of plasma. This platelet-rich plasma can release up to 8 essential growth factors, which can decrease healing time while rebuilding and generating new cells and necessary structures needed for optimal recovery. Currently, orthopedic surgeons are using PRP to help patients’ recover faster from surgery and help athletes recover quicker after an injury. This technology has given us the ability to assist the body with shorter healing times with regeneration of new cells to any given area of the body using PRP exclusively from your own body. Since PRP is processed from your own blood, there is virtually no risk of an allergic or adverse reaction during or after your procedure.
What can PRP do for me?
We can now apply this PRP technology to the skin providing it with life-giving growth factors to rejuvenate the skin’s appearance. Studies show that PRP with growth factors can:
- Reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
- Reduce acne scars
- Improve overall skin tone and texture
- Reduce the appearance of pores
- Restore a youthful glow to your complexion
- Stimulate collagen and elastin production improving skin firmness and laxity
These growth factors play a significant role in the regulation of cell growth which can promote angiogenesis, which is the physiological process involving the growth of new blood vessels. Blood vessels are vital and necessary for transporting nutrients and oxygen to the skin. Rebuilding new blood vessels and generating new cell growth are vital when treating the signs and symptoms of sun damaged skin and prevent further premature aging of the skin. It can help take years off the appearance of your skin.
