Naturally found in your blood, platelets are a rich source of proteins called growth factors, which promote healing and regeneration. Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) contains a higher concentration of platelets than the amount normally found in your blood. To create PRP a sample of your blood is drawn and placed it in a centrifuge, which separates out the platelets. These concentrated platelets are recombined with your blood plasma to make PRP. Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is then reinjected into the problem areas.
Platelet Rich Plasma for the Face
PRP injections are an alternative to Botox and fillers. Platelet Rich Plasma is taken from the patient’s own blood, spun down and reinjected into the face just like a filler to create and stimulate your body’s own growth factors. PRP produces collagen, hyaluronic acid, elastin, and plumps the skin.
Vintage Lashes has a patented advanced microneedling machine (only company in SW Florida that has this machine) that has an external tube, which holds the PRP. The tube is attached to eleven needles that punctures the skin at the same time it is delivering the PRP at the exact depth for the best result. The machine does 40k punctures within ten minutes. This is a noninvasive procedure. The PRP acts as a lubricant as it punctures for a faster recovery. Every puncture is delivering PRP to the entire face not just certain areas.
With just four treatments over a four-week period, the patients are seeing results that last for up to 2 years, so over the long-term, it’s very effective and safe. You don’t have to be concerned about toxins or chemicals with your own PRP.
Platelet Rich Plasma for Hair Loss
Hair loss can be caused by several different factors, age, alopecia, cancer treatments, family history, and various disorders. No matter what the cause, for many individuals dealing with the loss of hair can be traumatic and devastating.
PRP has seven growth factors in it and that helps to restore hair loss in three ways. First by stimulating new hair to grow, then by keeping current hair growing and last, PRP stimulates the stem cells that are around the hair follicles to thicken the shaft of the hair.
The typical treatment is every six weeks a treatment of four and then every 3 months until the hair is fully restored.
There is a medical alternative to help fill in the partial areas or the entire scalp where hair loss is prevalent. It is called Scalp Micropigmentation. A certified professional permanent make-
up artist that’s trained in this specialty will consult with you to address your concerns and then map out a detailed plan that suits your needs personally for your medical hairline tattoo.
Typically, most individuals have over 1,500 to 2,000 hair follicles on their head. With Scalp Micropigmentation, these follicles will be tattooed back on with an organic plant-based “ink” with no color additives. The best results are when experienced artists use multiple patterns to tattoo your hairline, areas of baldness or thinning, and even your entire scalp in extreme cases.
With a skilled professional your results should last over seven to ten years, but you may need a few touch-ups in the beginning stages to get you the desired look you’d like to achieve.
Both men and women seek Scalp Micropigmentation for its unparalleled effects. If you are a male or female that has baldness or thinning hair, you will be amazed at the camouflaging effect of Scalp Micropigmentation. It can change your life just by making you feel and appear more confident.
In addition to scalp hair loss, many people experience thinning brows with age, or with disease and disorders. An advanced technique using microblading is working wonders for countless individuals by filling in the brows with a natural appearance. By using the latest methods, tiny strokes mimic the natural hair fibers of the brow and within a short period of time, your eyes will be well framed, and you’ll look years younger.
