What is Platelet-Rich Plasma?

When used as a treatment strategy, platelet-rich plasma (PRP) involves concentrated platelets with many bioactive proteins. The mix of bioactive proteins and the Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) growth factors accelerate tissue repair in your body. 

Where Can PRP be done? 

This treatment can be done almost anywhere on your face and body

Microneedle depth will be adjusted to match the area of your skin you want to be treated by platelet-rich plasma. 

ReDerm Md performs in these common areas: 

  • Face 
  • Neck 
  • Upper arms 
  • Abdomen 
  • Legs

Types of Protein Growth Factors in PRP

Platelet-rich plasma promotes healing in your body. By injecting it directly into your wounds, the plasma helps kickstart the wound response. 

  • Platelet-Derived Growth Factor (PDGF) 

It promotes collagen production in your body, leaving the infected area firm and rejuvenated. This protein growth factor also increases cell replication and blood vessel growth, which triggers the wound response in your body. 

  • Fibroblast Growth Factor-2 (FGF-2) 

Similar to PDGF, the proteins in the centrifuged plasma promote the growth of blood vessels and cells. 

  • Epidermal Growth Factor (EGF) 

EGF is similar to PDGF since it increases collagen production in your body. In addition, this protein growth factor also grows new skin cells that assist in wound healing on the surface of your skin. 

  • Insulin-Like Growth Factor (IGF) 

Compared to the injection of insulin in patients with diabetes, this growth factor helps regulate the normal physiology of the cells in your body. 

  • Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor (VEGF) 

Platelet-rich plasma treatment promotes growth and regeneration in vascular endothelial cells between your vascular wall and bloodstream. With VEGF, the development of these cells won’t restrict the flow of oxygen in your bloodstream. 

Final Thoughts 

Using platelet-rich plasma (PRP) as a treatment to improve healing in your body can help you achieve your desired healing results faster than predicted.
