PRP Skin Regeneration Therapy, a type of regenerative medicine with the patient’s own blood, uses components called platelets in the blood to rejuvenate the skin. Platelets play a role in stopping bleeding and repairing damaged blood vessels and cells in the body. Platelets contain substances called growth factors that activate and rejuvenate cells in the body. The growth factors, when released, induce the production of collagen and generation of new capillaries to rejuvenate the skin.Based on an innate wound-healing ability, the therapy is performed by injecting components collected from the blood. The safe therapy has been studied and applied in a variety of fields. It is indicated for a wide variety of conditions; it is also used for the treatment of trauma and burn in the department of plastic surgery.
PRP Skin Regeneration Therapy is expected to provide great benefit for crepy skin under the eyes, which are difficult to treat with conventional rejuvenating injections and laser therapy. The therapy is also effective in treating wrinkles, acne marks, sags, and wrinkles on the neck. The therapy uses the patient’s own blood for rejuvenation and thus poses no risk of infection or allergy. It has the advantage of a longer duration of efficacy compared with injection of hyaluronic acid and collagen that are absorbed into the body. Other features such as no need for skin incision and short downtime (swelling usually resolves in two to three hours) make this therapy a safe treatment.
* When injection is performed under the eyes, redness may persist for two to three days but resolve over time.
The treatment is ideal for individuals looking for gradual but noticeable improvement in skin texture, tone and color with minimal or no downtime. This revolutionary natural procedure offers incredible skin rejuvenation. Platelets in your blood contain numerous Platelet Derived Growth Factors (PDGF). These growth factors stimulate proliferation of fibroblasts and keratinocytes which produce collagen and keratin. PDGF have a significant role in blood vessel formation, the cellular division of fibroblasts (the most common cells in connective tissue), and in synthesizing the extracellular matrix and collagen. Collagen production has been attributed to helping correct the visible effects of wrinkles.
This procedure is not a surgical face lift nor does it create the same effect as a face lift. The procedure helps restore or enhance areas which require volume. Improvement of skin texture and tone can be noticeable within three weeks and improvement continues for the next 8 months as more collagen and keratin is laid under skin. The results typically last 2 years or longer. Areas of treatment include cheeks and mid-face, wrinkling around the eyes, smile lines, nasolabial fold, neck and jawline, chest, acne scarring and more. The process takes between 60-90 minutes, depending on complexity. For the best result, we recommend three treatments spaced 4-6 weeks apart.
PRP skin treatments are extremely safe. Because PRP is produced from your own blood, there is no risk of an allergic reaction. In addition, PRP contains concentrated amount of white blood cells, your natural defenders against infections. As a result, infection is extremely rare with our PRP treatment.
