Platelet Rich Plasma therapy and Microneedling, at the Anti-Aging and Wellness Clinic in Costa Rica, can reverse the signs of aging and make your skin appear 5 to 10 years younger. Platelet-rich plasma is a concentrated source of blood plasma that is derived from whole blood. It contains a concentration of up to 7 different growth factors and cytokines. Microneedling when used alone can increases the skin’s new collagen and remodels old collagen. When PRP and microneedling are combined the results can significantly improve skin texture, tone, color and volume.
Blood contains plasma, red cells, white cells and platelets. Platelets contain proteins called growth factors that are critical to cell regeneration and healing. For PRP therapy, a small amount blood is drawn from the patient and then put into a centrifuge, a device that spins at a very high speed, separating the platelets from the other components of the blood. The result is a concentration of platelets 3-10 times higher than normal physiological levels. Microneedling increases collagen production and creates access for the PRP to enter the skin. The results are amazing improving the appearance of wrinkles, scars, sun damage and dark circles under the eyes.
The benefits of PRP and Microneedling include:
- 100% natural
Platelet rich plasma comes from your own blood and is the ideal procedure for anyone worried about injecting foreign substances into his or her body.
- Improves the skin
Microneedling and PRP have both been shown to improve damage to the skin caused by acne, sun, malasma, stretch marks and aging.
The procedure is non-invasive and does not require surgery or harsh lasers
- Recovery time is short
Patients can return to work the same day. Redness is minimal and usually goes away within 24-48 hours.
- Quick with little or no pain
Microneedling penetrates only the top layer of skin where there are very few nerves and requires only a mild topical numbing agent. The entire procedure takes less than 1 hour.
- Long lasting
If patients care for their skin and protect themselves from sun exposure, the results usually last at least 1 year. Improvement to damage caused by acne, melasma and stretch marks can be permanent.
