TUCSON, AZ. October-17–2012 Local Physician John McGettigan Jr. M.D. C.C.D.,C.P.I, announces the arrival of the Aesthetic PRP “Twilight Treatment”® at Quality Aesthetics & Laser, utilizing a Micro Dermal-Needling device to infuse the patients own Platelet derived growth factor.
PDGF is the evolutionary sentinel growth factor that initiates all wound healing. Platelet rich plasma (PRP) contains several growth factors, including platelet-derived growth factors (PDGF), transforming growth factor-beta 1 (TGF-beta 1) at high levels and vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF). When platelets are activated growth factors are released which emit chemical signals to surrounding areas multiplying the growth factors thus causing a heighten “immune response”.
Platelet derived growth factors’ main functions are to stimulate cell replication (mitogenesis) of healing capable stem cells. It also stimulates cell replication of endothelial cells. The introduction of the “Twilight Treatment” to Dr. McGettigan’s practice will provide those seeking Anti-aging Skin Care, with a safe alternative to Surgery or Laser treatments.
AnaGrace Valdez, Certified Laser Specialist/ Aesthetician, who conducts the procedures for Dr. McGettigan says, “Our patients have been pleased with the results from the TWILIGHT TREATMENTS® because there is no pain or heating of the tissue, and little to no recovery time involved, patients can continue with their daily activities immediately after each treatment.
Aesthetic PRP & Micro Dermal Needling is an excellent option for patients who do not want to experience the downtime, health risks or pain associated with more invasive procedures for tighter more youthful skin in the face, chin, neck, even hands, Valdez says this treatment is not really limited to one specific area, and can be performed within two weeks of Dermal fillers or other Injectibles.
An obvious advantage with this procedure is the fact that the epidermis, the protective layer of the skin, is preserved. In his studies, (Fernandes, 2005) (3) promoted the fact that “we should never purposefully destroy the epidermis.”
Clinical studies demonstrated by (Schwartz, 2006)shows new Collagen and Elastin formation (CIT) this study, twenty blinded biopsies taken from 10 different patients from various parts of their body demonstrated an average increase in new fibers of 206%, one biopsy a 1000% increase was recorded.
