THE USE OF PLATELET RICH PLASMA IN ESTHETIC PROCEDURES
What is Platelet-Rich Plasma?
Platelet-rich plasma is your own blood plasma that has been concentrated with platelets. Through a process called degranulation, the super-enriched plasma releases growth factors and cytokines that stimulate the healing of bone and soft tissues such as skin. Platelet Rich Plasma is used for a wide range or reconstructive procedures at the Sultan Center for Oral and Facial Surgery.

How is Platelet-Rich Plasma Produced?
A small amount of your own blood is drawn in the same sterile manner as for a standard blood test. Your blood is placed in a centrifuge, which separates the platelets from the other blood components such as erythrocytes and leukocytes. The concentrated platelets are removed from the centrifuge and introduced into the areas targeted for treatment such as with the Dermapen.
Why is the Combination of Dermapen and Platelet Rich Plasma So Effective?
The Dermapen Skin Needling System creates a micro injury in the areas of treatment. The injury prompts your body to produce the proteins, collagen and elastin, which encourage the skin’s healing and regrowth. When your platelet-rich plasma is introduced during a Dermapen treatment, your body’s ability to heal itself intensifies.
Who Should Get the Combination?
Dermapen combined with platelet-rich plasma is used to correct fine lines and wrinkles, manage acne and surgical scars, enhance skin texture and elasticity, reduce stretch marks and improve skin discolorations resulting from melisma. Overall results are equal or superior to more invasive therapies.
Esthetics by Stephanie at the Sultan Center for Oral & Facial Surgery recommends the use of Dermapen combined with Platelet Rich Plasma to patients in their Fort Lauderdale center. This unique treatment combination ensures patients receive the best outcome following Dermapen procedures.
