The internal essence of the blood inside you contains life-giving, fundamental protein growth factors that are designed to restore and strengthen your body. Dr. Leeman uses Platelet Rich Plasma treatments to harness a high concentration of your own biological nutrient-rich cells and unleashes them to naturally promote skin health by stimulating the regeneration of the underlying structural integrity of your skin. With a simple process, Dr. Leeman will safely prepare your blood in the office and deliver it into your skin within the same treatment session. This revolutionary technology allows Dr. Leeman to create a concentration of 95% platelet aggregation, which enhances the results of any procedure. Platelet Rich Plasma reduces pain, promotes faster healing and stimulates your own collagen.
How do Platelet Rich Plasma treatments work?
When Dr. Leeman and the team at NEWU introduce the platelet rich plasma to the skin, your own concentration of cells will work with your body to naturally promote a “structure and signals” process for new tissue and collagen growth. Platelet Rich Plasma can either be injected directly into the face or used to enhance the results of other treatments including Fractional Laser Resurfacing Therapy, Facial Fat Grafting, Brazilian Butt Lifts or Natural Breast Augmentation.
When will I see results?
After the treatment, patients often notice fine lines and wrinkles have softened and deeper wrinkled areas, such as nasolabial folds, look plumper and smoother. The main goal of the treatment is to stimulate fibroblasts and develop long-term collagen formations in the dermis. Your results will be gradual and vary from person to person based on health, age and genetic make-up. Most patients enjoy quantifiable improvements in skin complexion, texture and tone within three weeks. Subtle improvements can progressively continue for up to 2 years.
What areas of the body can be treated?
Platelet Rich Plasma treatments are derived from your own biological make-up and does not contain synthetic products. Therefore, virtually any area of the body can be treated, including your face, neck chest, hands, scars and more.
Are there any side effects?
Because the Platelet Rich Plasma is autologous (comes from your own body), there is virtually no risk of an allergic reaction or intolerance. Nevertheless, before the treatment, you need to disclose all the medications you are taking (including herbs) with Dr. Leeman.
How should I take care of my skin after my Platelet Rich Plasma treatment?
In order to enjoy a maximum response to your treatment, it is important to eat right, drink lots of water and incorporate the facial care recommended by Dr. Leeman.
