PRP treatment, or Platelet Rich Plasma therapy, is also known in Hollywood as the Vampire facial.
Dark circles, under-eye-puffiness, fine lines or small wrinkles, sagging of the facial skin around your eyes, mouth, cheeks, and eyes, uneven or dull skin tone are common problems and they increase and become more prominent with age. These symptoms occur as the body stop producing collagen at the rate it used to. Stimulating the collagen regeneration is key to the PRP therapy.
Blood is made up of four components; red blood cells, white blood cells, the plasma and the platelets. Platelets are the cells that support the tissue by helping with healing and growth of new cells. In a PRP treatment, platelet rich plasma is extracted and injected in the deep dermis or far layer of concern areas to promote faster and effective regeneration and rejuvenation. What actually happens – It promotes collagen growth and regenerates the tissues under the skin, making the skin smoother and firmer and at the same time helps in softening the wrinkles, correcting the skin tone and overall texture. In a nutshell- healthier, younger and glowing skin.
To extract the platelet rich plasma, a small amount of blood is drawn from the patient, it this then taken through the process of centrifuging to separate the white and red blood cells from the platelet and plasma. After the centrifuge process, the separated plasma contains a high density of platelets. Which is what is needed for the rejuvenation.
PRP is also used for treatment of hair loss and hair thinning. The process and science is the same, only the application area and outcome is different. In PRP for hair, the objective it to regenerate, strengthen the hair follicles to simulate hair growth and health.
Traditionally PRP was only used for orthopedic treatments, but today it is widely being used for cosmetic and aesthetic treatments.
