Combining laser and ultrasound technologies to deliver platelet-rich plasma

Combining laser and ultrasound technologies to deliver platelet-rich plasma Combination therapies are often used by aesthetic practitioners to achieve the best possible results for their patients. Although laser therapies can produce good results when treating common skin conditions, ultrasound technologies can be used to push particles from one place to another. Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) treatment is also one of many injectable procedures available for the purposes of skin rejuvenation and revitalisation. This paper describes a case report of a 47-year-old woman who was treated with needle-free PRP, minor fractional laser treatment and an ultrasound probe. A carbon dioxide (CO2) laser was used to create perforations, PRP was applied topically to the skin, and then an ultrasound probe was used to force the PRP from the skin surface into the dermis. As PRP was administered without a needle, the procedure was performed without causing any post-procedure bruising. The patient was pleased with the treatment outcomes and the quality of her skin improved significantly. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Journal of Aesthetic Nursing Mark Allen Group

Abstract

Combination therapies are often used by aesthetic practitioners to achieve the best possible results for their patients. Although laser therapies can produce good results when treating common skin conditions, ultrasound technologies can be used to push particles from one place to another. Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) treatment is also one of many injectable procedures available for the purposes of skin rejuvenation and revitalisation. This paper describes a case report of a 47-year-old woman who was treated with needle-free PRP, minor fractional laser treatment and an ultrasound probe. A carbon dioxide (CO2) laser was used to create perforations, PRP was applied topically to the skin, and then an ultrasound probe was used to force the PRP from the skin surface into the dermis. As PRP was administered without a needle, the procedure was performed without causing any post-procedure bruising. The patient was pleased with the treatment outcomes and the quality of her skin improved significantly.
