What is PRP?
PRP stands for Platelet-Rich Plasma. This golden liquid is a concentrated solution of plasma derived from your own blood. It’s used to promote tissue regeneration, cell growth and collagen production. It is widely known to help heal joint injuries in athletes by accelerating the body’s natural healing processes.
Combining PRP therapy with our other treatments such as Morpheus8 (RF micro-needling) can help stimulate the development of new, healthy cells and optimize your skin’s healing process.
Morpheus8 (Radio Frequency Micro-needling) with PRP
Growth factors in PRP enhance your body’s ability to create new healthy skin cells. PRP treatments promote collagen and elastin production, both of which are essential for your skin’s firmness and elasticity.
When combined with Morpheus8, PRP treatment can help:
- Enhance your skin’s healing process
- Optimize skin rejuvenation and reduce recovery time
- Stimulate collagen and elastin production for firmer, more youthful skin
- Smooth fine lines and wrinkles
- Reduce the appearance of acne and surgical scars
Enhance Your Morpheus8 Treatment with PRP
The PRP Procedure
A small blood sample is drawn by a qualified medical professional using a fine butterfly needle to ensure comfort. The sample is then placed into a centrifuge – a device that spins rapidly causing the blood components to separate into three layers.
The golden – growth factor rich layer (PRP) is then extracted and readied for treatment. The PRP serum is applied topically at the end of your Morpheus8 treatment or micro-needled directly into the skin.
Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) FAQS
PRP for skin rejuvenation works by harnessing the regenerative properties of your own blood to improve the appearance and texture of your skin. The platelets in PRP contain important growth factors that promote healing and tissue growth which can greatly enhance the results of your treatment. Your PRP procedure at Sculpt Spa in Las Vegas includes:
- Blood Collection: The procedure begins with the extraction of a small amount of your blood, typically from a vein in your arm. This is done using a sterile needle and syringe, like a routine blood draw.
- Centrifugation: The collected sample is then placed in a centrifuge, which is a machine that spins at high speeds. The centrifuge separates the blood into its various components based on density, with the PRP layer being the middle layer. This layer contains a high concentration of platelets and growth factors.
- PRP Extraction: After centrifugation, the PRP layer is carefully extracted and prepared for use in the rejuvenation procedure.
- Skin Preparation: Before PRP application, your treatment area is cleansed, and a topical numbing cream is applied to minimize any discomfort during the procedure.
- PRP Application: The PRP is then applied to the targeted area. Depending on the specific technique used, it can be applied via injection, micro-needling, or a combination of both. Micro-needling involves the use of a device with fine needles that create tiny channels in the skin, allowing the PRP to penetrate more deeply.
The growth factors and platelets in the PRP stimulate your skin’s natural healing processes. They promote collagen production, tissue repair, and the formation of new blood vessels. Collagen is essential for maintaining skin elasticity and firmness, while increased blood flow can enhance overall skin health. As we age, our bodies break down the collagen in our skin faster than it produces it. Combining these treatments helps to reverse that process and thereby reverse aging.
Over time, as your skin heals and new collagen is produced, you may notice improvements in skin texture, reduced fine lines and wrinkles, increased skin tightness, and a more youthful appearance.
