Platelet rich plasma therapy or
PRP is a rapidly emerging procedure for Skin rejuvenation which has shown great potential for Anti-aging treatments such as fighting lines and wrinkles and restoring sun damage.
The results from platelet rich plasma therapy(PRP) can be dramatic, with visible results from your very first session, the treatment replenishes younger looking skin and results getting better after each subsequent session
PRP can be used in part of your beauty regime to improve skin clarity and overall appearance.
PRP uses a small sample of your blood, which is spun in a centrifuge to harvest the platelets. These are rich in growth factors which are re-injected to the surface stimulating new collagen and rebuilding your skin. As we age, a loss of collagen occurs and the skin loses it’s firm, youthful nature. The growth factors stimulate the surrounding skin to plump up and increase in volume. This Smooths out fine-lines and gives you a fuller more natural look. PRP also helps to stimulate a type of pre-adipocyte cell which can replenish volume along your facial contours. This sculpts your face when used in conjunction with Dermal fillers.
PRP is a very safe treatment – primarily because your own blood is used eliminating any chance of allergic reaction or serious side-effects. The procedure lasts about an hour during which PRP is injected using fine needles in target areas requiring rejuvenation and repair. The process is painless due to topical anaesthetic applied. Mild swelling and redness are common side-effects and usually subside within 24 hours.
The results from PRP can be a dramatic improvement in appearance with a significant reduction of wrinkles and fine-lines. Results are long-lasting upto 1½ – 2 years.Further touch up treatments ensure you stay youthful for a very long time.
