Undoubtedly the appearance of our skin is demonstrative of our eomg, therefore, if we have fragile and damaged skin, which is very thin and flacid, we create the appearance of having unhealthy skin. Much of these effects are due to aging, exposure to the environment and solar radiation, but also to the genetic makeup of each individual that will indicate how their skin ages and looks to a great extent. The skin is the largest organ in the body and is exposed to the environment, so it must continually repair and regenerate itself in order to fulfil its functions.
The application of growth drivers has multiple uses in the field of medicine. It is applied for example in traumatology for the improvement of chronic injuries in the cartilage, ligaments and tendons, it is also applied in the field of reconstructive surgery where it improves healing and promotes the healing of wounds.
In aesthetic medicine, this biological stimulation of the skin (biostimulation) and specifically of the fibroblasts these growth drivers will produce various effects such as:
- Fibroblast stimulation: these cells are responsible for producing all the support molecules of the skin, that is, collagen, glycosaminoglycans (hyaluronic acid), elastin, etc. Therefore, if the cells that build and maintain the structure of the skin work better, the skin will be healthier and will regenerate more quickly and efficiently, delaying the signs of aging.
- Neovascularization: Increases the number of blood vessels in the skin and therefore more blood arrives, which leads to an increase in the arrival of nutrients and useful substances for the skin, generating a stronger and more vital skin.
- Immune system stimulation: Which promotes better protection of the skin, reducing the damage it suffers and the inflammatory effects that occur from it, which are harmful to skin cells.
- Increase in the production of collagen, elastin and glycosaminoglycans: This translates into an increase in the regeneration and replacement of damaged skin molecules with newer ones, giving the skin greater resistance, thickness and elasticity, improving its texture and surface. Therefore, the patient will have stronger, less fragile skin and will see an improvement in fine wrinkles, skin tone and surface texture.
Biostimulation with PRP has shown extraordinary effects in improving the quality of the skin, positioning itself as one of the most popular treatments today due to its “anti-aging” effect.
It is a treatment that has practically no contraindications and can be applied in all types of patients. There is no type of rejection, as it is a 100% autologous treatment as the patient’s own growth factors are used, but concentrated in the skin. The main indications are:
Skin: Patients who want to slow down aging and maintain their skin health. Patients who want to improve the characteristics of their skin and regenerate it.
Alopecia: PRP has shown its effectiveness in various studies, in delaying hair loss, in addition to strengthening the hair that the patient has.
Scars: PRR has been shown to be effective in improving the quality and elasticity of scars, avoiding retractions or pathological scars. It also shortens the healing time of wounds.
To carry out the treatment, it begins with a blood draw from the patient. The sample is centrifuged and the fraction of the plasma that is rich in platelets is obtained. In turn, this plasma is activated and infiltrates the skin.
Treatment infiltration is carried out through multiple skin micro-infiltrations with an extra-fine needle, so the puncture is hardly noticeable.
Since we do not want anything we do to hurt you, prior to the treatment an anaesthetic cream is applied to the skin, so your experience will be very pleasant and simple. The treatment does not cause inflammation in the skin, just a temporary redness.
Carrying out this type of treatment must be done by a doctor with training in aesthetics and aesthetic medicine. Dr. Ospina, is a professional with double training, since in addition to being a plastic surgeon with experience in facial aesthetic surgery, he has a master’s degree in aesthetics and anti-aging medicine. Therefore, his training is totally complete, his anatomical and tissue knowledge very broad, providing an added bonus of security and a very complete aesthetic vision.
Dr. Ospina has more than 10 years’ experience in the field of aesthetic medicine.
Although it is not a complex treatment that requires exceptional measures for its performance, Dr. Ospina is always prudent so we have all the necessary measures to treat any complication that may appear. In addition to having a sterile and calm environment, which will make you feel really comfortable when carrying out your treatment.
A written care protocol will be given to you so that you can go home calmly. In addition, you can contact us at any time to solve your doubts.
Return to normal life is immediate, so you do not need special preparation or a lot of prior organisation to undergo the treatment.
The results are summative and progressive, depending a lot on the starting point in which the patient’s skin condition is. Generally we will indicate a treatment protocol and sessions, so that as we carry out them, we will see a progressive improvement in the skin.
Most often, small purple marks may appear due to infiltrations, but they are easily concealed with makeup and their duration is greatly shortened if you follow our protocol.
“Biostimulation with PRP is one of the best anti-aging treatments that we can offer to our patients and it gives wonderful results …”
