PRP is the platelet and plasma components of your blood. Your platelets are replete with growth factors that help heal damaged tissue. PRP is part of many surgical and non-surgical injury treatments today, and medical professionals are increasingly using it in the medical aesthetics arena, as well.
PRP has a couple of uses in medical aesthetics. PRP, when injected or infused in the right areas, can trigger rejuvenation of the cells beneath your skin. When placed in your dermal skin layer, where you produce collagen, PRP triggers additional collagen production to improve skin tightness and elasticity.
Injection directly into the skin is one way to get the PRP where it needs to go, and another option is PRP infusion following microneedling. In microneedling, your MiKO Med Spa care provider uses a microneedling device, a small roller with dozens of very short needles, to make tiny punctures down to your skin’s dermal layer.
The microneedling punctures stimulate your body’s healing reaction, which means you begin making extra collagen. The PRP boosts the collagen growth, even more, to give you the maximum results, minimizing or erasing lines and wrinkles. PRP and microneedling work really well together, particularly if you need major help with scars or badly damaged skin.
PRP is also sometimes used in hair restoration treatments. When injected in your dormant hair follicles, PRP can help you grow hair again. In some cases, your provider may combine microneedling the scalp with PRP hair loss treatments.
MiKO Med Spa Medical Director Dr. Michael K. Obeng, a renowned cosmetic and reconstructive surgeon, designed the PRP treatment protocols and processes. Dr. Michael K. Obeng personally selected his MiKO Med Spa team members based on their specialized training and experience.
Your MiKO Med Spa care provider takes a small amount of your blood to use in the PRP extraction process. They use a sterile centrifuge to whirl the blood at extremely high speed, creating separate layers. Your care provider disposes of the other fluids and draws the PRP into a fine syringe.
They inject the PRP directly where needed, or massage it into the punctures made by the microneedling device.
