Cosmetic Platelet-rich Plasma Therapy Certificate

Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy is a high demand procedure that mingles advance technology with the body’s natural capability to heal itself. In this procedure the very own patient blood is separated into its active plasma and platelets parts that are then mixed with different enhancing serums and injected into the wrinkles, folds and  areas that need to be rejuvenated. The concentrated platelets in PRP contain large amounts of growth factors and signaling proteins that promote collagen fibrillogenesis and regeneration of connective tissue. Platelet-rich Plasma Therapy is highly in demand because of its use in treating sports injuries in professional athletes. However, the benefits from these techniques reach more patients than just athletes. These same growth factors also have beneficial cosmetic applications, such as facial and skin rejuvenation as well as hair restoration. This workshop is not solely a lecture. Attendees will administer PRP to live models / patients. Cosmetic Platelet-rich Plasma workshop presented by the BC Academy of Medical Spa & Skin Care will teach you about the Aesthetic procedure commonly used for facial rejuvenation that clinically and scientifically is proven to be effective to reduce signs of aging skin.

PRP to treat Hair Loss

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) combined with Medical Skin Needling is a great natural procedure that uses your body’s own plasma to stimulate the hair follicles encouraging new hair growth. This procedure is effective in the treatment of Alopecia

How does the Procedure work

It involves passing an electronic needle-rolling device over the affected area. The needles penetrate into the second layer of the skin, where the hair follicles are pierced creating thousands of miniature skin wounds. A vial of blood is then drawn from your body and centrifugally spun to separate the platelets. The Platelet Rich Plasma containing concentrated amounts of growth factors is then infused directly into the scalp. The skin remains intact and is not damaged therefore promoting constructive regeneration. As the skin begins its wound healing process these growth factors are present in the follicular bulge area, where stem cells are found. This activates the proliferative phase of the hair cycle, resulting in new thicker, hair growth.
