Shinagawa Lasik & Aesthetics Launches DermLift PRP Treatment

Known for offering a wide variety of highly innovative skin and body treatments for the face and body, Shinagawa Lasik & Aesthetics has launched an exciting addition to roster of signature treatments.


I like the fact that the clinic foresees its DermLift PRP+ to be a unique, alternative solution for those who are seeking cosmetic surgery to reverse the effects of aging. It promises to aid in cell regeneration by making use of one's own cells without having to make use of artificial products or surgery.

This innovative procedure from Shinagawa is a natural procedure that offers incredible skin rejuvenation with minimal to no recuperative downtime.

DermLift PRP+ makes use of a trusted kind of therapy that have been used by surgeons for more than 20 years. Platelet-rich plasma therapy (PRP) is wherein a small portion of the blood, which is composed of a very high concentration of platelets, is used to repair tissues via the release of growth factors.

These growth factors are proteins that initiate connective tissue healing; bone, tendon, ligament regeneration and repair, stimulating the wound healing process, and promote the development of new blood vessels.


PRP was initially used for wound management and has now progressed to also be used for muscle and tendon injury as well as cosmetic skin rejuvenation and hair restoration.

Now through Shinagawa's DermLift PRP treatment, platelets in the blood, which  contain growth factors are used to stimulate the production of collagen and keratin. PRP can be precisely introduced to an area where increased collagen is desired, resulting in repaired and rejuvenated skin. PRP injections initiate a localized stem cell response that recruits collagen-producing cells over the course of weeks and months following the treatment. These cells replace tissue that has been damaged or lost via the natural aging process with healthy, rejuvenated skin with improved tone and texture.

The DermLift PRP treatment is recommended for:
Reducing fine lines and wrinkles
Lightening of crow’s feet
Regeneration of mild collagen and volume loss
Removal of acne scars
Tightening and toning of skintone

Shinagawa assures patients to see overall improvement in their skin's hydration, tone snd texture after just a few weeks of treatment. New collagen and blood vessels will begin to grow three to six weeks after treatment, resulting in the reduction of fine lines/wrinkles and volume correction over the following three to six months. The cosmetic effects of PRP can last up to two years, depending on the individual. Best results are yielded when up to three treatments are provided, that are six weeks apart. This treatment will yield less than optimal results in the event that smoking or excessive alcohol/sun exposure persists after the procedure.

Do you want to learn more about the DermLift PRP treatment?

Here are our answers for your frequently asked questions:

What happens during a DermLift PRP treatment?

At your initial appointment, our highly trained doctors will discuss your treatment expectations, and check your health history. The day of treatment, a numbing cream is applied to clean skin at least 30 minutes before the procedure, making the treatment very comfortable.
PRP is carefully injected into the target area via a syringe and gentle technique. In certain cases, PRP is applied to the skin with a dermaroller, which causes micro-abrasions that permit for a more diffuse treatment effect. The preparation time is 30-45 minutes, which includes the blood draw and numbing technique necessary for a comfortable procedure. The procedure itself may take 30-60 minutes.


What about recovery time and post treatment?

1. Expect initial mild discomfort. You can resume to normal activity right after your appointment.

2. Mild swelling, redness or bruising may last for 3-7 days

3. Apply cold compresses to minimize swelling and bruising

4. Avoid exposure to UV rays. Your face will need optimal sun protection up to 72 hours after the procedure. Use Celesty UV White.

Is this a safe procedure?

This is a simple and safe procedure using your own blood for treatment. Because the PRP sample is produced from your own blood, there is no risk for an allergic reaction with the exception of any numbing or pain agents that may be used, which will be reviewed by our highlytrained doctors prior to your treatment. The risk of infection is very low as the PRP sample contains a concentrated amount of your own immune cells, your natural defenders against infection.

Any contraindications?

Certain health conditions such as autoimmune and blood disorders, allergic skin disorders, infections, chemotherapy and cancer care may limit the use of PRP. It's best to consult with trained derma doctors prior to check whether or not you are candidate for this procedure.
