PRP Scar Treatment
How Does PRP Work
PRP in aesthetic medicine is an exciting avenue that has produced tremendous results for clients looking to achieve a smooth appearance. The platelets induce massive fibroblasts which are cells found in skin that act as soldiers in the battle against damaged scar tissue. Platelets release growth factors that work to eliminate necrotic tissue and boost cell regeneration. Growth factors (bioactive proteins) attract macrophages which are large white blood cells that eat up cellular debris and produce stem cells for tissue repair and ultimately scar repair. Clients looking to improve scars will benefit from the tissue renegeration that PRP offers.
All PRP is Not Created Equal. The technique used for isolating and concentrating platelets has a direct impact on growth factor availability and functionality.
Test tube systems, Lab centrifuges and many other so called “PRP” systems fail to achieve the threshold of platelet concentration and white blood cell composition required.
Harvest PRP With SmartPrep System
At Bellair Laser Clinic we use the Harvest PRP with SmartPrep System which consistently and reproducibly generates the optimal platelet concentration that may help optimize the conditions for healing. We also use the PRP Pen at Bellair Laser Clinic which is able to micro needle the area creating an even disbursement of plasma in the treatment zones. The microscopic punctures create a funnel to receive the plasma serum and a channel through which collagen can be formed for tighter and smoother skin, and reduced scars.
PRP is often combined with other scar removal treatments such as fraxel and chemical peels. Combination therapy usually gaurantees the best possible results. We recommend coming in for a complimentary consultation to assess which scar removal treatments are right for you.
