Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy is a high demand procedure that mingles advance technology with the body’s natural capability to heal itself. In this procedure the very own patient blood is separated into its active serum and platelet parts that are then mixed with Calcium Chloride and injected into the wrinkles, folds and areas that need to be corrected. The concentrated platelets in PRP contain large amounts of growth factors and signaling proteins that promote collagen fibrillogenesis and the repair and regeneration of tissue. Platelet-rich Plasma Therapy is highly in demand because of its use in treating sports injuries in professional athletes. However, the benefits from these techniques reach more patients than just athletes. These same growth factors also have beneficial cosmetic applications, such as facial and skin rejuvenation. This workshop is not solely a lecture. Attendees will be required to administer PRP for live patients in order to earn their Certificate of Completion.

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) combined with Medical Skin Needling is a great natural procedure that uses your body’s own plasma to stimulate the hair follicles encouraging new hair growth. This procedure is effective in the treatment of Alopecia.
It involves passing an electronic needle-rolling device over the affected area. The needles penetrate into the second layer of the skin, where the hair follicles are pierced creating thousands of miniature skin wounds. A vial of blood is then drawn from your body and centrifugally spun to separate the platelets. The Platelet Rich Plasma containing concentrated amounts of growth factors is then infused directly into the scalp. The skin remains intact and is not damaged therefore promoting constructive regeneration. As the skin begins its wound healing process these growth factors are present in the follicular bulge area, where stem cells are found. This activates the proliferative phase of the hair cycle, resulting in new thicker, hair growth.
