Platelet Rich Plasma Treatments

A New Technology Bringing Health & Beauty Together

Rejuva Skin Care and Wellness Spa, located on the Wheaton Franciscan – Elmbrook Memorial Campus, now offers Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy, the latest breakthrough in using your body's own nutrient-rich platelets and fibrin to create phenomenal results.

When applied to the face and neck, PRP treatments are extremely effective to smooth wrinkles, fine lines and textural changes to the skin. Platelet cells contain many essential growth factors and proteins which can be used to promote healing, accelerate tissue healing and regeneration, and encourage new cell growth. It is also showing promising results as an emerging alternative medical procedure for the treatment of hair thinning and restoration.

"PRP is an exciting new therapy using the body's own healing power for a number of cosmetic improvements.” says Dr. George Korkos, Medical Director of Rejuva. "We're seeing wonderful results in improving the skin tone to the face or neck, and also in stimulating hair follicles on the scalp. It's especially promising for those with thinning hair who aren't candidates for hair transplants."

During your visit, a simple blood draw is performed. Platelets are then separated from other blood cells and their concentration is increased during centrifugation. They are then applied to treatment areas.

PRP involves using your own cells that are not modified or changed, and it will not be rejected by your immune system. This makes it a great option for those not wanting to use synthetic products like fillers or Botox but are still interested in improving their skin's condition and appearance.

Rejuva Skin Care and Wellness offers the latest in medical expertise and clinical excellence. Under medical guidance and expertise, you will experience all the essentials of a healthy, well balanced lifestyle. Other services include skin and beauty treatments, therapeutic massage, acupuncture, and healing treatments.
