PRP, or platelet-rich plasma, is already a well-known staple in regenerative medicine. This natural serum is derived from the patient’s own blood. It can be used on its own for a variety of purposes, and it can also be combined with other treatments like microneedling. At VEDA Medspa, we use RegenKit® in our PRP treatments to provide enhanced platelet concentration to our patients.
If you are concerned with issues like fine lines and wrinkles or thinning hair, then a PRP treatment with RegenKit® and microneedling may be right for you. Visit VEDA Medspa in Live Oak, TX to learn more about your options from our professionals. Contact us today to schedule your consultation!
What Can PRP Treat?
On its own, PRP is useful for a variety of treatments. The results can be enhanced by combining the treatment with microneedling. Concerns that can be treated with PRP and PRP with microneedling range from facial rejuvenation to hair restoration.
Why is It Combined with Microneedling?
Microneedling is a non-surgical approach to skin rejuvenation. This minimally invasive treatment option addresses skincare concerns at a subdermal level. By creating microchannels in the skin, this treatment process encourages the production of fibers like collagen and elastin while also allowing for the better absorption of beneficial substances like PRP.
Our microneedling treatments are performed with SkinPen®. During these skin rejuvenation treatments, a tool is used to create microchannels in the treatment area. As these channels are created and filled with PRP, this further activates your body’s healing and tissue production processes.
With RegenKit®, PRP promotes healing and restoration to the body. When used on specific areas of the face along with microneedling, patients can see a reduction in fine lines and wrinkles, as well as other blemishes like scars, dark circles, and thin lips. PRP is often thought of as an all-natural alternative to dermal fillers.
Microneedling with PRP triggers your body’s healing mechanisms and promotes tissue production to help reduce the appearance of:
• Acne scars
• Dull skin texture
• Dull skin tone
• Enlarged pores
• Fine lines
• Skin laxity
• Sun damage
• Uneven skin texture
• Uneven skin tone
Most hair loss treatments involve unnatural and sometimes ineffective medicine, with more drastic treatments requiring surgery. With PRP and microneedling, the process will active the dormant follicles, which allows the hair to grow back thicker than before.
What Can I Expect?
With a platelet-rich plasma treatment, you will first go through a routine blood draw. Our team will then use RegenKit® to isolate the red blood cells from the platelets and plasma. The red blood cells can be removed at 99.7%, and the remaining components have a very low level of contamination.
You can learn more about this treatment and what to expect by getting in touch with Dr. Pradeep S. Mohan and our team.
