Dr. Paul Dell’Aquilla of Spatologie sat with Joanna Gagis on “A Life & Living Moment” to discuss how a patient’s own platelet rich blood can be used for cosmetic enhancement.
Dell’Aquilla says that first, blood is drawn. Then, a special centrifuge is used to spin it. The top layer, which is basically all your platelets and all the growth factors that your body makes naturally, is taken off.
“Then, we inject it in various portions,” Dell’Aquilla says. “Whether it be the face for facial rejuvenation, or the hair for hair rejuvenation.” A patient’s own blood is taken out, separated, and injected back into the patient.
Dell’Aquilla describes a process known as Vampire Facelift, which fights aging by adding volume to the face by injecting the platelet rich plasma. “This will stimulate growth factors to be formed, and rejuvenation will occur through an increase of blood vessel formation, and also collagen and tissue formation.”
