What is PRP therapy and what is the process?
The treatment involves extracting platelets from the patient’s own blood in order to inject them into problem skin areas, starting with the extraction of a minimal amount of the patient’s blood (10mls). This is then placed in a centrifuge, for a few minutes, to spin the blood which separates the red blood cells from the platelet rich plasma. Platelets contain a high content of ‘growth factors’ – proteins that help to heal injured tissue or damaged skin. Upon re-injection, the platelets release their growth factors which trigger surrounding cells to reproduce, in turn stimulating repair, increasing volume and rejuvenating the skin.
The whole procedure only involves needle injections to the desired areas, requires virtually no healing time and also reduces possible side effects to a minimum.
The procedure usually takes less than an hour and patients can go home or to work following treatment.
What are the advantages of the PRP facial?
The potential benefits of PRP have led to widespread interest in its use for anti-aging and regenerative purposes. The healing properties of the blood components in PRP can be used as a cosmetic treatment for the following:
How long after the PRP injections before I see a change?
Patients will usually feel the immediate effects of PRP therapy after it is performed and during the next few weeks the collagen will begin to grow and generate more and more healthy cells underneath the skin. That is when the optimum results of the procedure are felt. Your Medical Practitioner may suggest a course of PRP treatments (usually three) in order to maximize your results.
Prior to Treatment
To ensure that you receive the best possible results, preparation prior to treatment is a vital part of the process.
You will be provided with detailed aftercare information prior to leaving the beauty bar after your PRP treatment.
What are the side effects of PRP?
There are few side effects associated with PRP therapy. Immediately after the procedure you may expect some bruising, swelling and redness at the injection sites. You may also experience some tenderness at the injection sites although any side effects should settle within a few days following the procedure.
