- Emily W.
I had my first visit with Dr. Smida today. My current dentist in Marin County, who I love and trust, referred me to Dr. Smida in Petaluma so I could explore more options for treatment. I have an implant that has developed bone loss around it, and Dr. Smida has the Laser Technology and expertise that I am very hopeful will restore the bone loss without any invasive or painful procedures. The office is easy to find, welcoming, and her staff is professional and friendly! I am additionally thrilled to discover that, not only does she have all the latest technology and is current with all the latest in dentistry, Dr. Smida has a very holistic approach to health and dental care, which is very appealing to me.
A small portion of blood is drawn, then spun in a centrifuge to separate vital components including platelet rich plasma. Calcium is added to PRP to spark the release of growth factors. Using a microneedling device, Dr. Smida re-introduces the formula into skin where it:
- Attracts stem cells
- Boosts the rate of cellular renewal
- Stimulates collagen production
- Triggers tissue remodeling and skin repair
Tapping into your personal fountain of youth
PRP treatment improves the condition of sun damaged and lax skin. It is appropriate for face, neck, scalp, décolletage, and hands. Because PRP treatment utilizes growth factors from your own body, there is no risk of allergic reaction. A session typically takes an hour or less, and two to three treatment are recommended for optimal results. The procedure is well tolerated. Some patients see immediate change, and improvement continues as PRP is absorbed into the body. Annual touch-up treatments keep skin youthful.
