Plasma is a concentration of platelet cells taken from the patient’s own blood, that have healing factors that help with injuries. Injections with Plasma will increase tendons, ligaments, collagen, and cartilage.

Platelets in Plasma at Buffalo Aesthetics: What is Platelets in plasma?

Plasma that contains a higher concentration of platelets (generally 6-8 x baseline).

Why is Platelets important?

Platelets stimulates growth factors, cells, and cytokines that are integral to tissue growth and repair.

Are all Plasma with platelets the same?

No, all are not the same. The goal is to obtain a high concentration of undamaged Platelets. Pure platelets are dependent on your blood draw technique, centrifuge, and number of spins that provides the highest yield of concentrated platelets. Having higher concentrations of platelets reduces the number of injection sessions.

Applied to the skin the same as injected into the skin?

No. Although applying a serum to the skin will moisturize your skin, one of the functions of the outer layer (epidermis) is to protect your skin. For it to work, it requires getting through the epidermal layer (protective layer) and down into where it can interact with growth factors without platelet breakdown.

Why is the swelling worse post treatment?

The body’s response to Platelets is to initiate the wound healing cascade. Part of the wound healing cascade involves growth factors, enzymes, and interleukins that are responsible for swelling and an inflammatory reaction necessary for the development of new and healthy tissue. It is the same process of healing the body goes through with cuts and injuries on the body heal over.

Why is it not serum not red?

When obtained in an ideal fashion it should appear clear. When 1 drop of red blood cell enters the solution, the color is stained to a pinkish hue.

Is the procedure painful?

Patients encounter minimal to moderate discomfort. All attempts at reducing pain are taken with ice application, topical numbing creams, and local nerve blocks. Dependent on the location of PRP administration, pain symptoms will vary.

Can I have a reaction?

No. The solution is a by-product of your own blood re-administered into your body, it is unlikely for you to develop a reaction from use.
