Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)
PRP has been used for years in different realms of medicine to promote healing and collagen production as surgical sites, using a patient’s own (autologous) plasma. In dermatology, we use PRP to induce collagen growth, improve acne scars, improve skin texture, fine lines, and wrinkles, stretch marks, and promote hair growth of the scalp. PRP is obtained by a venipuncture blood draw. The patient’s blood is obtained and spun down in a centrifuge which separates red blood cells from the platelet-rich plasma by force and weight. The PRP serum obtained contains a platelet-rich growth factor and is placed into a syringe for re-injection into various sites of the face that need collagen production/rejuvenation.
What is the difference between PRP and PRFM?
PRP/PRFM contains your own body’s platelets suspended in plasma. PRFM is an even further development that produces a fibrin mesh that sustains the platelets to the area injected to provide continued growth factor release over a longer period of time vs PRP, thus even further enhancing the benefits of the treatment.
PRFM can also be added to our CO2 laser resurfacing to increase healing and decrease downtime. It is especially helpful with acne scar reduction.
Benev exosome regenerative complex
Benev Exosome treatments are based on the most cutting edge scientific biotech breakthrough for skin rejuvenation and regeneration. Exosomes are responsible for cell to cell communication and for facilitating the exchange of RNA and other important proteins between cells (e.g. fibroblasts, keratinocytes, immune cells, etc.), in addition to transferring numerous growth factors and cytokines and genetic materials that have shown signs of tissue repair and improving skin cells.
Human skin cells easily uptake BENEV Exosome Regenerative Complex and Exosome Regenerative Complex + powered by ExoSCRT ™ which means that stem cell-derived exosomes can message skin cells to “Do Something”.
Exosomes are nano-sized vesicles (30–200 nm) constantly released by almost all cells. The ability of exosomes to travel between cells and deliver their cargo, which includes lipids, proteins, and nucleic acids, makes them an appealing cell-free therapy option to treat multiple diseases.
What is the difference between and PRFM and exosomes?
With PRFM, our nurse will draw your blood, spin it and then use the PRFM and apply it to your skin. Exosomes are a little different as no blood draw is necessary, the exosomes are derived from a lab from a stable human host. The exosomes have been tested in a lab and results are comparable to PRFM.
