Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP)
PRP stimulates collagen production in the skin, fueling the treated area with growth factors that enhance and strengthen dermal integrity.
- PRP is commonly used for treating fine lines and wrinkles, thin crepey skin around the eyes, neck and décolletage, aged hands and also for stimulation of hair growth.
- Using the healing properties of your blood platelets, PRP stimulates cellular rejuvenation and improves skin texture, elasticity, thickness and luminosity.
- A sample of your blood is withdrawn and processed in a centrifuge to separate Platelet-Rich Plasma, rich in growth factors that stimulate the body’s natural healing response, creating new collagen.
- PRP is administered either using a multi-needle mesotherapy injector device, using a micro-needling device and/or injected manually in specific problem areas.
- Cumulative results start becoming visible at three weeks and keep improving over the ensuing months.
- A course involves up to three treatments spaced a month apart. A single repeat treatment every six months to a year maintains the result.
Since your own blood is used, chances of an allergic reaction are zero. Side-effects are minimal making PRP one of the safest treatments around. Swelling and redness of the treated areas may occur for up to 48 hours and, as with any injectable , it is possible to bruise. This is easily covered with makeup.
