Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is an innovative treatment that uses blood plasma containing high concentrations of platelets which help rejuvenate and revitalise skin.
Injecting the skin with PRP helps accelerate the process of tissue regeneration and repair. This new-age procedure has beneficial effects on acne scars, wrinkles, facial folds, crow's feet and fine lines.
PRP contains fundamental growth factors released by activated platelets to help initiate the tissue regeneration process by:
stimulation of new collagen production
induction of mesenchymal stem cell division and differentiation
stimulation of blood vessel formation
What is involved in the Treatment? The treatment involves collecting blood from the client using specially designed tubes which are then centrifuged for 10 minutes.
During the centrifugation a patented gel within the tubes isolates the PRP from the other required cells within the blood.
Depending on the indication for its use, PRP is then applied by injection or topically in a combination with other treatments.
As it is your own blood, the risks of unwanted side effects or reactions are eliminated.
Three treatments are generally required to obtain the desired results. What are the benefits?
