Platelet rich plasma the key to anti-aging in Portland

Platelet rich plasma the key to anti-aging in Portland Area

Modern medicine is exciting, and we are happy to be at the forefront of the anti-aging movement that allows our patients to age gracefully. History has demonstrated that we cannot stop the hands of time, but we can slow the effects of aging with innovative science. One of the latest developments has opened the door for men and women who prefer an all-natural approach to skin rejuvenation: platelet-rich plasma (PRP). At Thrive, we go beyond the use of this autologous substance and rely on the Selphyl™ system for optimal results.

Why Selphyl™ platelet-rich plasma

Platelet-rich plasma is a derivative of your own blood. The role this substance plays in wound healing is to alert cells to migrate and proliferate in dermal tissues when repair is needed. Studying this, researchers developed a method of rejuvenating aging skin when fibrous strands of collagen have begun to break down.

How it works

The way that Selphyl™ works is by targeting the root cause of aging, collagen breakdown. As soon as the substance is injected beneath the skin, it goes to work signaling the regeneration of collagen by introducing powerful growth factors into the tissues. These growth factors remain active for up to 7 days after treatment, aiding the reconstruction of frayed fibers. Because it takes time for collagen to rebuild, the results of treatment tend to improve progressively over several weeks.

What to expect from treatment

Like Botox and fillers, Selphyl™ treatment is quick and simple. The additional step that is involved is a blood draw at the onset of your appointment. The blood we collect is spun in a centrifuge to separate the desired liquid from other cells. Platelets are mixed one more time in order to balance the pH of the injectable solution for better results.

With Selphyl™, we can naturally reduce the signs of aging such as:

  • Forehead wrinkles
  • Flat cheeks
  • Frown lines between the brows
  • Crow’s feet
  • Smile lines
  • Nasolabial folds
  • Poorly defined chin
  • Marionette lines
  • Acne scars
  • Lines on the neck

Have you been waiting for an all-natural approach to wrinkle reduction? It’s here. Contact Thrive in Portland to learn more about Selphyl™ platelet-rich plasma treatment.
