As we grow older our facial muscles naturally start to lose tone and elasticity, genetics, lifestyle, weight fluctuation and environmental factors can all influence the rate and degree to which our skin will lose its tone, and as we all know first impressions count, and a sagging face can make you look tired and older than your years.
PRP (Platelet-Rich Plasma) is a recent technology that uses the components of one’s own blood to rejuvenate their skin and regenerate collagen, which results in vibrant, fresh and younger looking skin. These components’ of one’s blood reside with the ingredients, or fractions of one’s blood named Platelet- Rich Plasma which are enriched with platelets, stem cells and growth factors which are responsible for the ageing of one’s skin. Once this formula is injected into the skin it will accelerate the normal healing rate at a phenomenal pace through the formation of new collagen within the injected area. As it is your own plasma that is been used for this treatment, there is no danger of disease transmission or anaphylaxis of new plasma.
Platelet Rich Plasma injections serve many purposes , as they can be used to treat the eye area, fine lines, wrinkles, the backs of your hands, dry skin and also improve the overall tone of your skin and texture, just to name a few. As Platelet-Rich Plasma is a bioactive stimulators, and not a filler it will increase collagen providing a speedy increase in skin thickness. What’s more, is that visible result will appear after your first treatment session.
The treatment itself is relatively easy to perform by our professionals. Our Doctor will first take approximately 20 cc of the patient’s blood and separate the plasma (rich in platelets). After numbing the area being treated, these platelets are then injected into problem area with less elasticity which begins the process of becoming revitalized. Proper after-care and follow-up is done as a part of all treatments. Each session lasts approximately 45 minutes and will leave the patient with small swellings in the injected areas which will disappear within 3 hours. For optimum results it is recommended that the patient receives an injection once a month for their first 3 months then and additional injection every 6 months afterwards. However prior to the procedure, the patient can consult with our dermatologists to assess their individual cosmetic needs and determine the ideal amount of treatments to exceed the results the patient desires.
Within a few weeks of treatment, an overall improvement in skin hydration, texture and tone can be seen. New collagen and blood vessels begin to grow after three to six weeks, and reduction of fine lines and wrinkles and volume correction happens over the next three to six months. The effects of Cosmetic PRP can last 12 months to two years, depending on the individual. While it creates a longer-lasting effect in the skin, it does take time to work. For women looking for an immediate effect, Cosmetic PRP can be combined with hyaluronic acid fillers for quick volume correction. Fillers provide a matrix for building new collagen and can be used to accelerate and sustain the benefits of Cosmetic PRP.
