Why Offer PRP (Platelet-Rich Plasma) to Your Patients?
PRP (Platelet-Rich Plasma) is a type of regenerative therapy that harnesses the body’s innate ability to heal itself:
- Amplify the natural growth factors and cytokines the patient’s body uses for healing and repair
- Patients experience minimal to zero downtime and see visible results in as little as a few weeks, outcomes lasting up to 18 months
- Benefit for patients with an uneven skin tone, hyperpigmentation, fine lines and wrinkles, visible signs of aging and acne scars
- Combine PRP for Aesthetics with other skin rejuvenation treatments like microneedling to stimulate collagen production and give better, longer-lasting results to your patients
What Is PRP for Aesthetics?
PRP (Platelet-Rich Plasma) is a type of regenerative therapy that harnesses the body’s innate ability to heal itself, while turning back the hands of time.
Aesthetic medicine practitioners are using PRP to reduce facial wrinkles and deep creases, plump up sagging skin, improve the tone and texture of the skin and diminish acne scars.
Using a simple 3-step process, the patient’s own blood is separated by placing it in a centrifuge and the platelet-rich plasma is re-injected into the area of concern.
Patients love this process because it is a natural application and they experience minimal to zero downtime. Results are visible within a few weeks for most and can last months before another application is required!
While the market is definitely growing for the availability and utility of platelet-rich plasma in the field of aesthetic medicine, there is as much varying information out there as to how to use to treat your patients.
The IAPAM has worked with our expert faculty of board-certified dermatologists to create an online certification to provide you with reliable information and a standardized protocol for the preparation, administration and aftercare for the most consistent results for you and your patients.
Adding this procedure as a complement to existing aesthetics offerings like fillers and microneedling can help you increase patient satisfaction and increase per patient revenues.
There is an initial equipment investment to purchase a centrifuge for the blood separation process, but after this initial investment, your per patient cost is quite low because you are using the patient’s own blood in the process.
