Platelet Rich Plasma
Platelet-Rich Plasma Therapy, also known as PRP or the “Vampire Facelift” is on the cutting edge of regenerative therapies and is quickly becoming one of our favourite anti-aging treatments. Platelet Rich Plasma is a very natural way to treat lines and wrinkles, acne, pigmentation, increase volume to the face and rejuvenate the skin by purely using the body’s own serum as well as effective on dark eye circle and hair loss.
PRP is blood plasma that contains a high platelet concentration. Regeneration or anti-aging by biological stimulation of resident stem cells by growth factors. They have the ability to locally release growth factors that help to initiate the process of skin regeneration and hair growth. Hence, it helps to regenerate and slow down the aging process.
To create the PRP for treatment, a small quantity of the patient’s blood is drawn. Next, the whole blood is separated in a centrifuge to isolate the platelets into platelet rich plasma. The separated platelets (which hold all of the natural growth factors that stimulate inactive cells to promote collagen and tissue growth) are then injected into the face or area of the body that requires stimulation and rejuvenation.
PRP treatment is simple and fast. The injections are relatively painless. Generally a slight redness, swelling or tenderness is expected in the treated area. However, this is temporary and should disappear within 1-3 days and patients can resume work normal routine immediately after the treatment.
Skin is regenerated through tissue regeneration. Results will be seen in 2 to 3 weeks.
