What Is PRP?
The human body has a remarkable ability to heal itself from injury and damage, but medical science is only now beginning to understand—and harness—the complex mechanisms behind our amazing wound-healing capabilities. Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) technology involves isolating powerful growth factors found within the platelets, a major component of our blood. Normally, these growth factors are responsible for stimulating the production of new cells, but when combined with advanced cosmetic treatments such as fat grafting and facial dermal fillers, the results can be stunning: powerful, age-defying rejuvenation that turns back the hands of time and leaves you looking refreshed, youthful, and naturally-beautiful!

PRP Applications for Cosmetic Enhancement
In the hands of a qualified, experienced plastic surgeon such as Dr. Seify, PRP can be a powerful rejuvenation tool, and because it is taken directly from each patient’s own blood, it is 100% tailored to meet the specific aesthetic goals of each unique patient. As its use in the medical field is growing exponentially as more is learned about its role in stimulating the wound-healing process, PRP is also increasingly being used in cosmetic applications to enhance the rejuvenating effect of fat grafting or facial dermal fillers.
When combined with next-generation dermal fillers and neuromodulators such as Botox®, the growth factors in PRP help “trick” your body into repairing damaged skin and replacing critical proteins such as collagen and hyaluronic acid (HA) that the skin needs to stay youthful and healthy. Working together, the PRP and injectable filler help your skin naturally replace damaged cells, eliminate lines and wrinkles, augment facial contours, improve skin tone and texture, and literally regenerate new skin cells to bring back the glow and vitality of youth!
Fat grafting is an increasingly popular method of body contouring and facial rejuvenation in which excess fat is harvested from the patient’s own body and transferred to another area of the body that has suffered fat loss or slippage due to the natural aging process. Unfortunately, the effectiveness of fat grafting can, in some cases, be limited by the body’s refusal to naturally reabsorb the transferred fat. Injecting PRP from the patient’s own blood into the fatty tissues before the grafting process has shown to dramatically increase the body’s ability to accept and absorb the fat for permanent, naturally-beautiful results.
