Non-Surgical Facial Rejuvenation Using Your Own Plasma!
At BAXT CosMedical®, Dr. Rebecca Baxt, board-certified dermatologist and is excited to offer a revolutionary procedure to rejuvenate your face to a more youthful looking appearance with your own plasma! This remarkable procedure is called Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) for facial rejuvenation.
Dr. Rebecca Baxt was initially skeptical about using PRP to rejuvenate your facial skin. While platelet rich plasma has a long and successful history of use in orthopedic and reconstructive surgery, and dentistry; its use in cosmetic dermatology sparked interest when it was clinically proven to be beneficial in aiding skin wound healing. Dermatologists and cosmetic specialists then began to use this technique for a non-surgical facial rejuvenation procedure as well as for hair restoration.
Is PRP Facial Rejuvenation Safe?
Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) is produced from your own blood so there is virtually no risk of an allergic reaction or rejection. Additionally, ProGen PRP™ is manufactured in the United States and all of the kits are individually packaged. ProGen PRP™ is a US FDA 510k cleared Platelet Rich Plasma system.
What is ProGen PRP™ and How Does PRP Therapy Work for Renewing your Face?
ProGen PRP™ was selected by Dr. Rebecca Baxt, Medical Director of BAXT CosMedical®. This product is the gold standard in Platelet Rich Plasma. The ProGen PRP™ system processes your blood to optimize platelet concentration. Once your blood is taken in a simple blood draw, it is placed in a centrifuge where it is separated into reds cells, white blood cells and plasma. The plasma is concentrated is comprised of platelets and growth factors. The plasma is concentrated and then the platelet rich plasma is injected into targeted facial areas. Once activated, the platelets release growth factors and promote the growth of collagen. The PRP treatment aid in rejuvenating your skin to a healthy and more youthful state.
What Does PRP Facial Rejuvenation Treat?
PRP is a revolutionary treatment that non-surgically renews your face using your own plasma. The plasma stimulates tissue healing through your own high concentration of growth factors and cytokines.
PRP facial rejuvenation has been shown to:
- Increase your skin’s thickness and elasticity
- Reduce facial wrinkles
- Soften and smooth skin
- Improve appearance of sun damaged skin
- Soften scars (including acne scars)
PRP for facial renewal stimulates your body’s collagen to increase production for total skin rejuvenation. PRP is different than dermal facial fillers. Facial fillers treat facial folds as the active ingredient (hyaluronic acid) and are used to fill specific lines and folds on the face.
Dr. Rebecca Baxt will discuss your facial rejuvenation goals with you to determine if PRP is right for you and what other treatments may be used in conjunction with PRP to achieve optimal results.
How Long Is The Process And Is It Painful?
Dr. Rebecca Baxt explains to her facial rejuvenation patients that processing the PRP is quick and painless. A small blood draw takes just a couple of minutes, followed immediately by a 10-minute centrifugation of the blood. During the injections, patients typically experience a mild stinging or burning sensation and there may be some redness and bruising at the application site. These conditions resolve quickly leaving you with fresh, healthy, and rejuvenated skin.*
What Type of Results Can You Expect from PRP Facial Rejuvenation?
