In combination with MicroNeedling or RF MicroNeedling, PRP uses advanced technology to stimulate the body’s natural healing process and rejuvenate the appearance of the skin. Topically applying PRP will allow the platelets, that penetrate each micro-channel, to remain in place for a longer release of growth factors. Platelets will release growth factors for 7 days.
The challenge is keeping those platelets viable and localized, for that amount of time, to benefit from the prolonged growth factor release. In traditional PRP treatments, the platelets fall away or are absorbed within hours of the treatment. The KYMA system converts PRP to PRFM with the patented addition of a precise amount of calcium chloride, which initiates the conversion of fibrinogen to fibrin, as part of the clotting cascade.
The fibrin matrix serves as a three dimensional scaffold to maintain the platelets at the site. The scaffold also serves to protect the platelets, so their release of growth factors can be sustained over a longer period of time.
PRP, by definition refers to platelets in plasma, where the platelet concentration is generally considered to be twice the normal concentration in whole blood. No where in the definition of PRP is there a description for including red blood cells (RBC) or white blood cells (WBC) – in fact, these cells should be removed as much as possible from a PRP preparation.
Some kits that tout high platelet concentrations often do so at the expense of having contaminating RBCs or WBCs – these cells are known to have inflammatory and catabolic effects – just the opposite of the desired effect.
If the PRP in the syringe has any tinge of pink or red, it is mostly likely that you are injecting a preparation that has RBC contamination. The ideal PRP solution will be a golden, straw-like color.
