What is Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Treatment?
Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy is a revolutionary facial rejuvenation technique that uses the natural healing properties of the patient?s own blood to repair and rejuvenate the skin. This treatment has recently exploded in popularity, with celebrities like Kim Kardashian praising the amazing anti-ageing effects of the simple, natural treatment. PRP presents a viable non-surgical alternative to a facelift surgery, effectively plumping the face by harnessing the body?s own natural healing power. The procedure involves taking a sample of the patient?s blood, extracting the platelets which are rich in growth factors, and reinjecting them into the skin in order to stimulate the production of new healthy tissue.
What is the eDermastamp?
The efficacy of the PRP treatment is greatly enhanced by the use of the eDermatamp needling device which is used to penetrate the skin with fine needles. While most facial rejuvenation treatments with such drastic results usually require a period of downtime while the skin recovers, with the eDermastamp technology, this is no longer necessary. In early 2015, European doctors began giving ?lunch time? infusions, which allowed patients to receive a treatment and return to work with no downtime. This technology has now been adopted in Australia, allowing us to give our patients transformative treatments without interrupting their busy schedules.
How does it work?
The eDermastamp works by using a shallow needle depth to stimulate and repair the skin with minimal trauma. The eDermastamp is unique in its ability to be customised to create the best results for each patient?s individual requirements. The needles are fully adjustable, starting at 0.3mm, with the ability to increase by 0.1mm increments. This distinguishes the eDermastamp from similar systems on the market which have needles starting at 0.5mm with 0.5mm increments. This means that the eDermastamp has much more precise penetration which minimises trauma and maximises efficacy.
The needles are inserted to a depth that is adequate to stimulate the dermis, but not so deep that puncture marks remain in the skin. Small pricks of blood appear on the surface of the skin during the procedure which allows the operator to know that the needles have reached the dermis, as the more superficial epidermis has no capillaries. Stimulating the dermis creates angiogenesis, which is an increase in the blood network throughout the face, creating plumper, glowing skin.
How do PRP and eDermastamp work together?
This procedure alone simulates collagen production and significant anti-ageing benefits, but its efficacy is further enhanced by combining the treatment with PRP therapy. The eDermastamp system simultaneously needles the skin and delivers the powerful PRP solution into the skin, delivering the maximum benefit. A third layer of benefits is also imparted on the skin through the application of individually assessed mask treatments which are able to penetrate the skin more deeply due to the creation of the needling channels. This drastically improves the efficacy of the products, giving the skin and intensive boost in vitality and integrity, reducing fine lines and evening out skin tone.
What does this procedure treat?
This incredibly powerful combination treatment can effectively improve a range of skin issues including:
- Sun damage
- Premature ageing
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Uneven skin tone and texture
- Sagging skin
- Acne scarring
- Enlarged pores
