Platelet Rich Plasma, (PRP), uses your natural platelets to form new collagen for smoother and tighter skin. This treatment method may be used either with fillers or without and the solutions containing the platelets can be added topically, through a micro needling automated system or through injections.
Fillers are often used with PRP treatments to enrich the volume and the shape of the face. This is a non-surgical procedure that uses your own blood serum to help produce collagen. This treatment method is often used in conjunction with a dermal filler in order to enhance the filler procedure and to provide longer-lasting results.
Here are just some of the many benefits that you can expect to receive by using this treatment:
1. Improved skin tone
2. Reduction of scars and wrinkles
3. Healthier appearance
4. Amplified effectiveness of fillers
5. Prolonged filler duration
We start by taking a small amount of blood from your arm and then spin it to separate the plasma from the blood cells. Your platelet count is then concentrated at a level that is 4 times greater than normal. We then activate the serum by adding calcium chloride to it. Healing platelets arrive as a result and create a mesh of fibrin, much like they would do if an actual injury took place. The fibrin mesh then attracts healing cells and stimulates the creation of collagen through fibroblast production. Your plasma may be applied topically for surface regeneration or can be injected into your skin.
PRP is now becoming increasingly popular as a skin and facial rejuvenation method to help restore facial volume, to smooth and tighten the skin texture, reducing acne scarring and to improve the complexion. This type of process has been used for many years on professional athletes like basketball players, golfers and football players to help with tissue, tendon and joint repair. It is also proving hopeful as a future hair loss treatment.
