What is Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Treatment?
Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy is a revolutionary facial rejuvenation technique that uses the natural healing properties of the patient’s own blood to repair and rejuvenate the skin. This treatment has recently exploded in popularity, with celebrities praising the amazing anti-aging effects of the simple, natural treatment. PRP presents a viable non-surgical alternative to a facelift surgery, effectively plumping the face by harnessing the body’s own natural healing power. The procedure involves taking a sample of the patient’s blood, extracting the platelets which are rich in growth factors, and reinjecting them into the skin in order to stimulate the production of new healthy tissue.
What is the eDermastamp?
The efficacy of the PRP treatment is greatly enhanced by the use of the eDermatamp needling device which is used to penetrate the skin with fine needles. While most facial rejuvenation treatments with such drastic results usually require a period of downtime while the skin recovers, with the eDermastamp technology, this is no longer necessary.
How does it work?
The eDermastamp works by using a shallow needle depth to stimulate and repair the skin with minimal trauma. The eDermastamp is unique in its ability to be customized to create the best results for each patient’s individual requirements. The needles are fully adjustable, starting at 0.3mm, with the ability to increase by 0.1 mm increments to a maximum depth of 1.5 mm. This means that the eDermastamp has much more precise penetration which minimizes trauma and maximizes efficacy.
The needles are inserted to a depth that is adequate to stimulate the dermis, but not so deep that puncture marks remain in the skin. Stimulating the dermis creates angiogenesis, which is an increase in the blood network throughout the face, creating plumper, glowing skin.
How do PRP and eDermastamp work together?
This procedure alone simulates collagen production and significant anti-aging benefits, but its efficacy is further enhanced by combining the treatment with PRP therapy. The eDermastamp system simultaneously needles the skin and delivers the powerful PRP solution into the skin, delivering the maximum benefit.
What does this procedure treat?
This incredibly powerful combination treatment can effectively improve a range of skin issues including:
- Sun damage
- Premature aging
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Uneven skin tone and texture
- Sagging skin
- Acne scarring
- Enlarged Pores
What is involved in eDermastamp treatment?
The length of your treatment with eDermastamp depends on the size of the area that you would like to treat. For most people, this will be around one and a half hours.
Prior to treatment, we numb the area to be treated with an anesthetic cream to reduce any associated pain from the procedure.
The machine head itself is comprised of 6 very fine needles which extend and contract at a rate of 50 to 150 pricks per second. The head is moved over the skin care in the desired areas to treat.
Is eDermastamp suitable for my skin?
eDermastamp is suitable for all skin types, and will not cause hyperpigmentation, as the case can be with some other therapies.
Will eDermastamp treatment hurt?
We use a topical numbing agent before treatment to ensure that any discomfort you feel is significantly reduced.
How many treatments are needed?
You will likely notice the benefits of just one session of eDermastamp micro-needling, however, a course of 3 sessions is common for most people to obtain the best results. You should leave around 2 months between treatment sessions.
When will I see the results of my treatment?
You will begin to notice the results of your treatment around 4 to 6 weeks afterward. Your skin will continue to improve for 6 to 12 months after having eDermastamp treatment.
Are there any side effects of eDermastamp?
You may experience slight bleeding during the treatment. Afterward, you may be red and feel warm, and have skin tightness for an hour or two, but your skin will be all back to normal in 24 hours – 72 hours.
How long does eDermastamp treatment last?
After you have had your course of eDermastamp treatments, all that’s needed for upkeep is a once a year session.
