The Siboney International Clinic now offers its most promising program, platelet-rich plasma (PRP) mesotherapy for facial rejuvenation, alopecia, and stretch marks.
Performed on an outpatient basis, PRP injections contribute to pain relief without the risks of surgery, anesthesia, hospital stays, or long recoveries. Most people return to their jobs and activities immediately after the procedure. Because one’s own plasma is used, allergic reactions are unlikely. Combined with a comprehensive treatment plan, PRP can be an excellent therapeutic tool for skin revitalization and relief. The results are immediate.
The use of PRP therapy in the cosmetic field is very recent. It is a treatment capable of restoring the metabolism and skin functions, deteriorated by the passing of time, by the biological re-activation of skin cells. This results in younger, more luminous, and lush skin, with improved texture, reduced flaccidity, and reduction of fine wrinkles. It regenerates all signs of skin aging in the facial area, neck, body, and hands.
Platelet-rich plasma injection therapy stimulates tissue repair and regeneration. It has also proven effective in promoting hair growth, the treatment of osteoarthritis and has shown encouraging results in the reducing stretch marks.
Its application is through mesotherapy, superficial microinjections, at the dermis level. It is somewhat similar to the “vampire facial” but is applied directly into wrinkled areas, under eye-bags and loose skin. The effect is like using the best moisturizing and nourishing cream, but applied topically, the penetration of the moisturizer’s ingredients is minimal whereas the platelet-rich plasma injection penetrates fully, stimulating collagen and elastin production.
It is a platelet concentrate, extracted from the patient’s blood. The blood contains bioactive substances that start and regulate basic aspects to improve the quality of life of patients. It increases collagen production in the skin.
For the PRP injections, 12 to 40 cc of blood is collected depending on the requirements. It is placed in a tube and then centrifuged, allowing the separation of the plasma from the red blood cells.
Platelet-rich plasma as a cellular repair strategy has achieved successful results. Because it is an outpatient procedure, it allows patients to continue with their daily lives with no major interruption.
PRP therapy is also used in periodontal bone regeneration, before dental implant placement, improving stabilization and tissue healing.
In stomatology, it is a method that seeks to form dental tissues from stem cells. The platelet-rich plasma extracted from the patient’s blood favors regenerative processes. It helps the growth of bone or damaged tissues rapidly while stimulating the healing of wounds in an oral surgery procedure or dental extraction.
The use of plasma in traumatology and orthopedics allows a patient to improve ligament, tendon, and large joint injuries. The platelets, once injected, act together to regenerate.
The Siboney International Clinic offers platelet-rich plasma mesotherapy for alopecia, stretch marks, and orthopedic, stomatological, and facial rejuvenation treatments, The service is personalized, according to the patient’s needs.
