A medical spa is a cross between a day spa and a medical clinic, and it is always run or managed by a doctor, usually a dermatologist or plastic surgeon. It is also staffed by medical professionals. Consequently, it can provide more complex and effective cosmetic procedures like BOTOX® injections or laser treatments. Our renowned med spa in Naples is overseen by our board-certified plastic surgeon, so you can be sure that you are receiving the most up-to-date and trusted treatments that are available.
What is Platelet-Rich Plasma?
Platelet-rich plasma or PRP is a concentrate derived from the patient’s own blood. A centrifuge is used to remove the red blood cells, leaving the platelets and plasma. PRP has five times as many platelets and more concentrated growth factors than does whole blood and can, thus, promote healing. It has been used in several medical disciplines including dentistry, dermatology and orthopedics. Our state-of-the-art med spa in Naples uses it to reverse common signs of aging in the skin.
Platelet-rich plasma is used as part of our Vampire Facelift® treatment at our med spa in Naples. Its effects are similar to those of some dermal fillers, for it adds volume to the skin. Unlike dermal fillers, however, PRP does not target specific wrinkles, but improves the skin in a given area. It also stimulates the production of collagen, so its effects last longer than those of many dermal fillers. The platelets also stimulate the formation of new blood vessels that carry more nutrients to the skin. The effects of a PRP treatment can last for quite a long time.
What is Radiesse®?
Radiesse® is a dermal filler, and it is the only such product that can be used to add volume to the hands as well as to parts of the face. Unlike many dermal fillers, it is made from a calcium derivative. It can stimulate collagen production, so its effects can last for up to a year.
