PRP is a revolutionary treatment that stimulates your body’s natural healing powers to create new cells and tissue that’s made from a sample of your own blood.
To create PRP, Dr. Eden Giammaria takes a sample of blood from your arm and spins it through a centrifuge to separate the platelets from the other elements in your blood, creating a product rich in proteins meant to heal.
Your platelets consist of specialized proteins called growth factors, which serve as your body’s natural healing elements that support the mending of wounds and the creation of new tissue.
Stem cells are highly specialized cells that have the ability to morph into any cell your body needs, whether it’s new blood vessels, skin, or muscle. For aesthetic treatments, stem cells are used to assist in the regeneration and rejuvenation of new tissue.
PRP is a natural source of stem cells.
PRP and stem cell therapy are used as an aesthetic tool to improve a number of cosmetic concerns. Common uses include:
Dr. Eden Giammaria may apply PRP and stem cell therapy directly on your skin or as an injection. Both forms of treatment stimulate your skin’s production of collagen, which is the protein that gives your skin its strength and elasticity.
You may notice an improvement in the look and feel of your skin soon after treatment. But treatment with PRP and stem cells has a continuous regenerative effect, and it may take up to three months for you to see the full benefits of treatment.
To help maintain your more youthful look, Dr. Eden Giammaria recommends you take good care of your skin by applying sunblock daily and covering up with a wide-brimmed hat and sunglasses if you plan on being outside for any extended period of time. With good care, your skin may remain young and fresh for up to a year.
