Skin Repair in the Holliston/Metrowest, MA Area
Microneedling when performed with Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) enhances the treatment by delivering your own blood derived growth factors for healthy cell production and repair of damaged tissues. One to three vials of your blood are drawn and the platelets are separated in a centrifuge. The skin is bathed in PRP during Microneedling and can even be injected to further stimulate collagen production.
BELOW ARE THE GROWTH FACTORS STIMULATED BY MICRONEEDLING WITH PRP:
Epidermal Growth Factor (EGF) plays a significant role in the regulation of cell growth, proliferation and differentiation during the remodeling phase. Stimulates keratinocyte and fibroblast production.
Transforming Growth Factor (TGF) promotes angiogenesis which is the physiological process involving the growth of new blood vessels.
Vascular Endothelial Growth Facor (VEGF) an important signaling protein involved in both vasculogenesis and angiogenesis that may help the growth of blood vessels from pre-existing vasculature.
Fibroblast Growth Factor (FGF) promotes angiogenesis, granulation, and epithelialization for the intricate process of tissue repairing itself after injury.
Interleukins, Macrophages, Keratinocytes, Endothelial Cells, Lymphocytes, Fibroblasts, Osteoblasts, Basophils, Mast Cells activates fibroblast differentiation. Induces collagen and proteoglycan synthesis for healthy cell production and repair of damaged tissues.
Collagen Stimulating Growth Factor (KGF) stimulates granulocyte and macrophage proliferation for the growth of healthy tissue and blood cells.
Keratinocyte Growth Factor (KGF) keratinocyte migration, differentiation, and proliferations may optimize conditions for healing and the generation of new skin.
