Your blood is precious
Let’s talk about blood! Blood is a vital fluid that circulates throughout our entire body bringing nutrients and oxygen to our tissues and removing toxins and waste form tissues. Blood is made in the bone marrow and consists of three components known as red blood cells (RBC), white blood cells (WBC) and Platelets. RBC, WBC and Platelets are all suspended in a liquid called plasma. All have important roles but today we are going to focus on platelets.
Platelets are cells that are known for their clotting abilities and also aid in wound healing. They contain growth factors that can trigger cell reproduction and stimulate tissue regeneration or healing at the location of treatment.
While PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) is not FDA approved for aesthetic use (face and hair rejuvenation) it is widely accepted and performed in aesthetics. We use devices that are FDA approved for joint injections because it is giving you back the highest quality of your PRP that is available to you.
Know what devices your provider is using when you are undergoing PRP aesthetic treatments…
YES, it absolutely makes a difference!
Most devices that are used at other practices provide you with treatments that may last several hours after your procedure but at A Midas Touch Med Spa our preparation has clinically demonstrated that these benefits continue up to 7 days after injection…YES 7 DAYS… (so long as you follow our after care treatment instructions).
Why growth factors are so good
Growth factors released by platelets include:
VEGF which promotes angiogenesis and promotes wound healing
PDGF responsible for cell growth, new generation and repair of blood vessels, collagen production
EGF which promotes epithelial cell growth, angiogenesis and promotes wound healing
KGF which supports growth of keratinocytes
IGF which regulates cell growth
FGF which promotes tissue repair, cell growth and collage production
TGF-B which promotes growth and Nero genesis of epithelial cells and vascular endothelial cells, and promotion of wound healing

To obtain platelet rich plasma your provider will draw your blood (just like what happens when you see your doctor and they order labs) and take 1-2 tubes of your blood which at this time is considered “whole blood”.
After your blood is collected we will then spin it in a device called a centrifuge. When the blood spins in a centrifuge your RBC, platelets and plasma separate providing your provider with the ability to treat you specifically with platelet rich plasma and not with RBC that essentially provide no aesthetic benefit and can cause pain during the injections. PRP that is contaminated with RBC or WBC which can have inflammatory and catabolic effects causing the opposite effect of desired outcome.
Now you are ready for your PRP aesthetic treatment. Typically there are multiple injections depending on your concern (hair regeneration or anti-aging facial treatment).
Sometimes it is also used topically when undergoing a micro needling procedure. No matter which modality the benefits of platelets can be plentiful.
