At Amoderm, we strive to provide you with the latest cosmetic procedures and technique to ensure and improve your timeless and natural beauty. Injection of Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) is one of our latest offerings to you.
During the aging process, several changes take place in the skin, namely, the skin health, texture and tone change because of diminished blood flow and it becomes collapsed and droopy as muscle and collagen decrease. As a result, the person looks “worn”, or “tired” or “droopy.” The lively, rosy hue seen in children of every skin color fades to a dull gray, with areas of smooth and healthy soft tissue receding and giving their place to prominent bony features. As a result, the face lose its fresh and youthful appearance. The good news is that at Amoderm, we provide various treatments that can tackle these changes and prevent or reverse the effects of aging on your skin and body.
The PRP procedure relies on the naturally-occurring growth factors and stem cells that are present in your blood. These factors are known to stimulate key skin cells such as fibroblasts and keratinocytes and can promote synthesis and remodeling of collagen and proteoglycans and sprouting of new blood vessels, vital for supporting healthy and youthful skin. During PRP, these factors are obtained and enriched from a small volume of your own blood and injected back skillfully to selected areas in your face just like dermal fillers, to give you a natural and non-surgical facelift, replenishing lost volume and smoothing out wrinkles. To enhance the effectiveness of the results, the doctor will often combine your PRP injection with FDA-approved dermal fillers. The result is two-fold – you will see the instant results of the fillers, and the complex matrix of proteins and various growth factors and cells in PRP will continue the rejuvenation process under your skin. By combining the applications of dermal fillers with blood-derived growth factors, the PRP offers a unique balanced approach to revive your beauty.
How PRP Works?
Blood has been long recognized in various cultures and civilizations as the essence and source of life. Thanks to advances in medicine, we now know that blood is a complex “tissue” consisting of several types of cells and thousands of factors suspended in a liquid medium, known as plasma. Blood and its various components are known to contain life-giving fundamental protein growth factors that are essential to promote and sustain cellular and tissue vitality. While blood is normally contained within the circulation and cannot reach the cells and tissues of your skin, PRP procedure makes it possible to supply your skin with all those essential and revitalizing factors in a controlled and safe manner. PRP utilizes a leading-edge patented technology specifically designed and verified for aesthetic applications.
With a simple, quick and advantageous process, your clinicians at Amoderm are able to harness a very high concentration of your biological nutrient-rich cells and create autologous platelet-rich plasma (i.e. your blood plasma that has been enriched with your blood platelets and proteins). Following the injection, PRP causes an increase in the volume in the site of injection, but more importantly, PRP continually works like a rejuvenating agent thanks to the various revitalizing factors and cells that it contains. As a result:
The skin color and tone become rejuvenated and ”younger” because of new blood vessel formation, supplying skin with oxygen and essential nutrients.
New collagen formations and collagen remodeling in the dermis lift the face back to a more youthful shape.
Because the growth factors are working to build a new dermis, the epidermis (the outer most layers of your skin) appears smoother.
How Is PRP Done?
Here is an overview of the procedure:
Your Amoderm clinician will draw a small amount of your blood using a fine needle, similar to what is normally drawn to perform routine blood tests. The blood is collected into a sterile and sealed special tube to avoid coagulation (formation of blood clots) and contamination, which will bear your name to avoid any mix-up.
Your clinician will place the blood into a centrifuge machine and spin the blood at a very rapid rate to separate various components of blood, namely the plasma and the platelets from other components of the blood. This will form the basis of Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) used in your treatment.
The PRP is activated to release the essential growth factors and signaling proteins and is injected skillfully by your clinician into selected areas of your face.
Platelet-Rich Plasma injection initiates a regenerative process that translates your skin from within. The activated growth factors will instinctively know how to repair and strengthen the specific tissues where they reside. Furthermore, since all constitutes retrieved in PRP are exclusively from your own body (autologous in origin), there is virtually no risk of an allergic reaction or intolerance.
Does PRP Have the Risks of Blood Transfusion?
Blood transfusions have been linked to several risks such as transmission of diseases and serious adverse events. Please be advised that PRP is NOT blood transfusion and does not have the risks associated with transfusion of blood derived from other people. The PRP is derived from your own blood (i.e. it is an autologous product) and it is processed immediately in sterile conditions while you are waiting at our clinic and you will receive the injections right away. There is no risk!
Is The PRP Procedure Right For Me?
At Amoderm, we never subscribe to the philosophy of one-size-fits-all. That is why we invite all our clients to come visit us in person for a free and complimentary consultation session for better discussion of their needs and examination of their skin conditions. During the consultation we will work with you on the best treatment options to specifically address your needs and preference. Call us today at 949-266-7346 to schedule your free consultation!

- Filler injections (Juvederm, Radiesse, Sculptra, Belotero, Voluma, Volbella, Bellafill, Restylane & Perlane) to add volume & diminish wrinkles instantly. Dermal fillers are used to create volume under the skin in a fine & skillful procedure that has been likened to sculpting or non-surgical face lift. Dr. Jafari is highly experienced in using various dermal fillers such as Juvederm, Radiesse, Sculptra, Belotero, Restylane & Perlane to accentuate your natural beauty & defy the effects of aging. Juvederm, Belotero, Voluma, Restylane & Perlane are based on hyaluronic acid, a gel-like substance that is naturally present in skin, contributing to the firmness of young & healthy skin. Dr. Jafari at Amoderm Med Spa can replenish the skin’s lost hyaluronic acid by injection of Juvederm, Perlane, Restylane, Belotero or Voluma. On the other hand, Radiesse utilizes a calcium-based microsphere technology, which not only provides immediate volume restoration, but it also stimulates the body to produce new collagen, creating much more long-lasting results. Similarly, Sculptra is derived from corn-starch and is highly effective in stimulating body to produce more collagen. Dr. Jafari skillfully injects the dermal fillers into areas such as smile lines, nasolabial folds, marionette lines, lips, tear trough, nose bridge, cheeks, chin, neck and hands and takes away years of age in a few minutes! Dr. Jafari is highly experienced in techniques such as microcannula injections, which can reduce the bruising associated with the procedure.
