Cellenis™ Derma Platelet Rich Plasma treatment (Cellenis Derma PRP) is an injection performed by a medical provider that uses your own platelets to provide volume and collagen stimulation to your skin without traditional fillers and with minimal downtime. By injecting your own plasma into areas of need, you are provided an extended release of growth factors in your skin, including collagen (provides lift), fibrin (improves texture), and elastin (increases elasticity). The natural presence of these factors decreases with age, so by introducing them back into your skin via platelets, a natural, youthful appearance is achieved in the skin. Cellenis Derma PRP treatment is an alternative to traditional dermal fillers. Using your own cells, also known as autologous cells, significantly minimizes the risk of adverse reactions. In addition to being safe and natural, this procedure provides the highest possible concentration of platelets, causes low inflammatory response, and is quick, simple, and predictable.
Cellenis Derma PRP has been used in over 1 billion procedures worldwide, addressing common aging concerns such as hair thinning or loss, wrinkles, lines, sun damage, acne scarring, stretchmarks, and post-procedure wound healing.
What is platelet-rich plasma?
Platelet-rich plasma consists of two components: the liquid portion of the blood, known as plasma, and platelets, a type of blood cell that functions to facilitate healing throughout the body. Platelets are known to help clotting occur during the wound healing process, and they also contain growth factors that can trigger cell reproduction and stimulate tissue regeneration and healing in the area in which they are applied. Therefore, platelet-rich plasma contains more platelets than your normal circulating blood, meaning it is rich in growth factors and healing agents.
Platelet-rich plasma is derived from the patient’s blood by taking a sample and then “spinning” the blood sample on a device called a centrifuge. The centrifuge functions by spinning the blood sample at a very high speed, which allows the substances within the blood to separate based on how heavy they are. After spinning, the clinician can remove all components of the blood except the platelets and the plasma. What is left is plasma that is densely concentrated with platelets.
What To Expect?
New patients are first advised to consult their medical provider to ensure that Cellenis Derma PRP is right for them. The skin is cleaned and prepared during the procedure, and blood is drawn. The blood sample is then spun through the centrifuge, and your own platelet-rich plasma is returned. Your specialist will determine the best sites for injection for the desired results. Then the plasma is injected — easy as that!
Pricing varies depending on individual patient needs.
