When thinking about anti-aging processes, people often neglect to consider the body’s own natural processes. However, the body can be one of the most effective methods of battling the effects of aging. Our staff can harness those very processes through Autologous Platelet Rich Plasma, also known as A-PRP, which uses the patient’s own growth factors to promote the growth of newer, younger skin.
At the beginning of the A-PRP process, the staff takes a blood sample from the patient and places the sample into a centrifuge. The patient’s platelet-rich plasma is separated out from the remainder of the blood sample and set aside. Later, following the application of a topical anesthetic, we inject the plasma directly into the patient’s trouble spots. The plasma then goes to work as a variety of enzymes, proteins, fibrinogen, albumin and essential amino acids stimulate skin growth and regeneration while enhancing microcirculation.
The resulting skin is more elastic, tighter and younger looking than the previous skin cells, effectively providing an anti-aging effect that is ideal for use on areas such as the cheeks, jaws, nose, forehead, crows feet, the upper lip, the nasolabial folds and the periorbital areas as well as dark circles under the eyes. APRP can also improve stretch marks, acne, and hypertrophic scars as well as cleavage lines.
The goal of aesthetic medicine is to refine the body’s appearance while also adhering to medical safety guidelines and maintaining a patient’s health and wellness. Autologous Platelet Rich Plasma adheres to this philosophy by using the body’s plasma to stimulate the body’s natural processes to develop brand new tissue.

Aesthetic medicine combines art within the safety boundary of medical guidelines. A realistic expectation is the principle behind designing a treatment goal achievable for you. Some consumable treatments like A-PRP, Belkyra, Sculptra & Compression stocking are ordered as per patient request to keep our inventory current. This is decided on in the consultation when the patient make a commitment to the treatment plan.
