PRP - Tissue Regeneration and Repair
PRP stands for Platelet Rich Plasma – blood plasma containing a high concentration of platelets (also known as thrombocytes).
PRP therapy helps to accelerate and promote the body ‘s natural healing and rejuvenation process without subjecting patients to significant risk.
It is a biological skin rejuvenation treatment that uses the patient’s own cells (in the form of platelet-rich plasma) to repair and regenerate new skin tissue and increase collagen production. extracted from the patient’s own blood, PRP spurs the skin’s stem cells into action and contains high concentrations of growth factors, which are bioactive stimulators known to accelerate the natural healing process. injected into areas such as the face, décolletage and hands, PRP triggers the skin’s stem cells, enhancing the formation of new collagen at the site. the result is a natural rejuvenation that continues to improve over time.
Platelet-Rich Plasma Therapy Treatment
The Platelet Rich Plasma is not a surgical procedure. It is an injection treatment with no downtime, just like anti-wrinkle injections and fillers.
- The patient’s face is cleaned and the local anesthesia is applied.
- Our nurse draws some of your blood.
- The drawn blood is spun in a centrifuge. This process separates the platelets from the blood. The platelets are then isolated and prepared for re-injection.
- Before injection, a numbing cream is applied to the skin. Once injected the growth factors in the Platelet Rich Plasma causes the release of stem cells that already exist in the skin. They trick the skin into thinking it needs to heal itself – new tissue is produced with new collagen, and new blood vessels.
Who is a Candidate for Platelet Rich Plasma?
Almost anyone can be a candidate for the Platelet Rich Plasma treatment. It is natural since it comes from the patient’s own body.
Recovery from PRP
Platelet Rich Plasma injection requires little recovery time and usually no downtime at all. On the first day after treatment there may be some redness. On the second day the redness usually subsides and the skin may swell and the texture may become rough like sandpaper. By the third day, the swelling should be gone leaving just the sandpaper-like texture for 5 to 7 days.
Patients report skin that appears more youthful and rejuvenated which continues to improve over the first three months after treatment. The results can then last up to two years from the date of treatment.
