PRP, also known as the Vampire Facelift is an effective and natural procedure used to promote new collagen and tissue regeneration for treating fine lines, deep wrinkles, acne scarring, and loss of volume. PRP, by definition refers to platelets in plasma is produced through centrifugation of the patient’s blood. This results in a self-made concentration of human platelets in a small volume of plasma. The therapy will revitilize the skin and give it a more radiant appearance. At Newdermamed we use the Selphyl® PRFM as the next generation of PRP.

HOW IS SELPHYL PRFM DIFFERENT?

The Selphyl® system can convert PRP to PRFM with the addition of a precise amount of calcium chloride, which initiates the conversion of fibrinogen to fibrin, as part of the clotting cascade. The fibrin matrix serves as a three dimensional scaffold to maintain the platelets at the site of injection. The scaffold also serves to protect the platelets so their release of growth factors can be sustained over a long period of time.

WHAT CAN BE TREATED BY PRP?

Fine Lines and Skin Quality
PRP mesotherapy injections promote the process of natural tissue regeneration which naturally slows down as we age. PRP improves skin quality and smoothes fine lines.

Dark Circles
The eye area has very delicate skin that can appear bluish due to microcirculation. PRP mesotherapy injections stimulate circulation around the eye and as a result the under eye darkness will improve.

Deep Wrinkles
PRP can be combined with HA dermal fillers to restore youthful proportions to the volumes of the face. Areas include nasolabial folds, cheeks and jaws, periorbital area, crow’s feet, upper lip, nose and forehead.

Scars
PRP mesotherapy injections can greatly improve scars, acne scars, and stretch marks.

Hair Loss
PRP is a natural therapy that uses mesotherapy injections localized in the scalp to slow down hair loss and to stimulate hair growth. By exploiting regenerative potential contained in the platelets, this induces regeneration of the hair bulb environment, while increasing blood supply to the hair follicle. As a result, the hair becomes more enriched and stronger, in return enhancing the actual colour and brightness of the hair without any side effects.

THE POWER OF BLOOD

As part of the body’s natural ability to heal itself, platelets and other components in the human blood move to a site of injury. Platelets which are known to release a variety of factors that respond to tissue injury, where they go on to initialize and promote the healing process. Physicians have the potential to enhance the body’s natural healing process by focusing on concentrating the platelets at the site of injury.

PLATELETS RELEASE OF GROWTH FACTOR

Growth factors are released through the formation of a three-dimensional cross-linked fibrin matrix as soon as Selphyl prepared PRFRM is adminstered. This process is essential to the platelet plug as it serves as a binding site for both growing factors and platelets allowing their sustained release. This such scaffolding (fibrin matrix) is what localized the growth factors in return, increasing their concentration at the area of interest and guiding tissue regeneration.

HOW PRP WORKS

A nurse or physician will extract a very small amount of venous blood and place it into the PRP system which will produce the optimal platelet concentration by isolating the red cells from a platelet concentrate embedded in its own plasma.

WHAT IS PLATELET RICH PLASMA?

Blood is made up of plasma, red cells, white cells and platelets. Platelet Rich Plasma is blood with an increased concentration of platelets. Platelets are essential in hard and soft tissue repair mechanisms. They provide essential growth factors that stimulate collagen synthesis, skin renewal, cell growth, and tissue regeneration.

WHAT IS SELPHYL PLATELET-RICH FIBRIN MATRIX (PRFM)?

The Selphyl system can be considered the next generation of PRP and it is designed for the rapid and safe preparation of Platelet-Rich Fibrin Matrix taken from a small sample of blood from the patient.

Glycation and Aging

We all know that eating too much sugar can be detrimental to our waistline, but the negative effects of sugar are far nastier than that. Excessive sugar consumption actually disrupts the normal function of your cells and leads to accelerated aging – a process known as glycation. Advanced Glycation Endpoints (AGEs) is the name cosmetic … Continue reading “Glycation and Aging”

LIP AUGMENTATION

At NewDermaMed, we see many patients (mostly women, but not exclusively) come in requesting lip fillers. Some are looking to emulate a celebrity’s perfect pout, like Angelina Jolie, or like the unofficial face of lip fillers, Kylie Jenner, who went from thin lips to full lips, to fuller lips over the course of a few … Continue reading “LIP AUGMENTATION”

THE ANTIOXIDANT FOR YOUR SKIN

Vitamin C is an essential antioxidant, but unlike plants and animals, humans rely on external supplementation. The necessity of the vitamin C antioxidant in our diet was discovered by Dr. Albert Goyrgi when he exposed Vitamin C deficiency to be the cause of Scurvy. Goyrgi found that humans cannot synthesize Vitamin C due to our … Continue reading “THE ANTIOXIDANT FOR YOUR SKIN”
