Scientists have known for years that unipotent stem cells lie dormant in the skin and provide the building blocks for healing when you sustain a burn or cut. Until recently, physicians had no convenient way to stimulate those stem cells to grow new tissue. The Artistry Series is among the first set of procedures to harness this technology in the field of aesthetics, utilizing the growth factors found in the blood—specifically the platelets—to activate the unipotent stem cells in the that stimulate new collagen growth and create new, younger-looking skin.
The PRP Facelift is a custom-designed procedure that combines the technology of PRP and the artful eye of a skilled physician to deliver youthful, natural beauty as unique as you. The PRP is used to stimulate the regenerative process of the skin; creating new, younger skin that glows with vitality. It is often combined with the PRP Facial.
The PRP Facial, sometimes referred to as the Vampire Facial, is a very simple yet incredibly effective strategy for rejuvenating the face. PRP derived from your own blood is applied and worked into the skin with a professional microneedling tool. The microneedling tool creates micro punctures in the skin thus activating the collagen and elastin cascades to create new cells and rejuvenation. The PRP is used to simulate stem cells that exist in the face.
