What is a Plasma A facial treatment?

A Plasma A facials  are a type of skin treatment that involves the application of Acell + PRP.  The area of skin is micro-needled to induce a controlled microinjury then a mixture of Acell and PRP aka Platelet Rich Plasma Facial Treatment mixed with ACell is a combination of two steps:
1.) The skin that is treated is microneedled with a medical-grade Microneedle device
2.) During Microneedling the skin is soaked PRP in combination with ACell.

What are Platelets?

Platelets are the cells in the blood that help tissue to heal and grow new cells, and many growth factors are present in PRP. The PRP promotes your own collagen to grow, regenerates tissue, and thus acts as to naturally smooth and tighten the skin. In this way, PRP softens wrinkles and creating smoother skin texture and tone.

How is PRP obtained from blood?

At Nuderma Health and Med Spa we only use an FDA approved kits made by Dr. PRP to separate PRP from whole blood.  Dr.PRP is a medical kit designed for fast & efficient PRP separation. With this we obtain the perfect concentration of Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) every time. Concentration of platelets determine the amount of growth factors per sample of blood, which in turn affects the speed of healing.  The blood samples taken from the patient are transferred to Dr. PRP Kit for platelet separation using a centrifuge. The final components of the blood will be the red blood cells, the platelets, and the plasma.  Platelet concentration determines the efficiency of a good PRP separation system regardless of the volume of Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) produced. Dr. PRP uses a specially designed tube and a special centrifuge speed to help you get the perfect Platelet-Rich Plasma concentration.
When platelets become activated, growth factors are released into the area surrounding the wound or injury that the patient is treated for.

The benefits of Micro Needling the skin with PRP.

During this procedure, tiny needles create controlled micro-injuries to the skin in order to produce collagen and elastin. Micro Needling with PRP makes skin look dramatically younger because it causes a reduction in fine lines and wrinkles. Micro needling with PRP reduces hyper-pigmentation, hypo-pigmentation, acne scars, traumatic scars and stretch marks. Treatments with the micro needling are extremely effective for acne scars, especially when combined with platelet rich plasma (PRP) application.

What’s the Science behind Platelet Rich Plasma Facial Treatment?

As part of the body’s healing ability, platelets and other components in human blood migrate to the point of care. Platelets are well known to release numerous growth factors that respond to tissue injury and initiate and promote the conditions for healing.

How long does it last?

Normally about seven months. The amount of time that you benefit from PRP depends largely how you treat your skin. If you stay out of the sun, wear sunblock, get enough sleep, drink lots of water, and use medical grade skin products, you can expect the longest benefit from any skin treatment.

Can I do it more than once?

You should give the treatment some time to reach its maximum effect. Most patients will just need one treatment every six months to achieve and keep the maximum benefit. Some patients with severe skin damage can benefit from a series of treatments. Ask Dr. Spencer about packages with reduced pricing if you need multiple treatment sessions of PRP and micro needling.

I was told I’m not a good candidate for laser treatments. Can I do this?

Micro needling and PRP can be used on all skin types, including patients with darker skin that are not candidates for laser therapy, such as those of African American, Asian, and Latino descent for example.

1Individual results may vary. 2All manufacturer claims, in regards to the benefits, process, length/effectiveness of treatments, how soon you’ll see results or heal, or claims of minimal side effects such as minor redness or mild discomfort or no downtime, are provided by the pharmaceutical manufacturers as part of their guidelines in promoting their product and are backed by case studies/peer-reviewed publications and are published on their individual websites. 3Testimonials are the opinions of real clients that wanted to provide them and express their opinion to others. When written, the only editing done was to fix minor grammatical/syntax errors and/or to truncate extended testimonials that, while nice, went a bit long. Video testimonials are unedited. 4Treatments and services that are time-related (such as fees per a “20 minute session”) are rooted in the fact that most appointments (i.e. the historical average amount of time required to complete most areas we treat) take that amount of time; however, it may be recommended or advised or necessary that more than one session time is required to achieve whatever affect you’re looking for (such as someone wanting to treat many areas of their body vs someone simply wanting to treat their hands). A quick consultation in our office will provide you the exact time required to treat whatever you wish since treatment areas have a direct impact on time required to treat such areas. 5Superlatives, when describing services/products, are manufacturer claims and, in the end, it’s your opinion as to what service/product is right/effective/best for you. 6Internal comparison claims comparing one technology to another (such as stating that a new product is x% better than the previous model, similar to how a 2018 model vehicle has many advances/improvements over a 2010 vehicle), when comparisons are done within the same company’s lineup, are the manufacturer’s statement-of-fact and reflect the latest science and/or breakthrough that, when released as a product, is the best/most effective at the time within their own product lineup — they are not claims comparing their product against other manufacturers’ products. 7Videos, which we have chosen to add links to on our website, are either local television coverage pieces or third-party videos that we feel are great for learning and gaining an overview of the process of several services we offer; but third-party videos (e.g. those in the public domain, such as YouTube) in no way should be construed as an endorsement of Nuderma Health and Med Spa and/or our services specifically. They are meant as an awareness tool to help you decide upon common treatments provided by Nuderma Health and Med Spa and med spa providers nationwide. Some videos are produced by the pharmaceutical manufacturers and others are by service providers.
