What is Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy?

PRP stands for Platelet Rich Plasma – that is a concentrated blood plasma substance and contains appropriately three to five times the number of platelets that are typically found in one’s normal circulating blood. There are a few bioactive proteins that assist with the rejuvenation of the skin including platelet-derived growth factor (PDGF), vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF), transforming growth factor (TGF) – among others. The comforting thing about this method of stimulation for collagen production is that it’s a very safe and non-invasive service that is federally approved by the government. Using this service helps with sagging skin, it reduces the visual appearance of fine lines, and it effectively revitalizes the skin to give it a more youthful look and feel. One’s own body produces this rich in platelets plasma, and in turn, it gets redeployed to naturally rejuvenate the patient’s skin. Growth factors are released via the blood platelets, and this helps to stimulate collagen production, which essentially turns back the time on the skin’s appearance. There is no downtime when getting this natural service, and it helps the patient to look younger and often times, feel better internally about her or himself by providing a boost in confidence.

PRP Benefits

PRP is a facial rejuvenation treatment that harnesses one’s own plasma to stimulate both cell migration and collagen production to vastly reduce, and even eliminate wrinkles, folds, and lines in the skin. The results are very natural looking, and they can last an astonishing two years. There is no risk of an allergic reaction, minimal invasiveness, and the substance can be used to treat almost any area of the body without the patient experiencing side effects. It’s an excellent alternative to injectable fillers for those who are either not ideal candidates for that kind of treatment, or who are opposed to it for various reasons.

How does PRP actually rejuvenate the skin?

Cells within the body that aid the tissue in healing and with producing new cells are known as platelets. PRP is directly injected into the skin where treatment is desired, and this area then grows collagen to regenerate the tissues, and as a result, the skin becomes tighter and smoother. This solution creates a beautiful skin texture and tone that visually looks more healthy and vibrant, younger, and even.

 

Precautions to take for skin rejuvenation PRP treatment

A week before treatment, all sorts of common intakes need to be stopped including alcohol, green tea, Advil, Aspirin, and a few others as well. Cold applications need to be applied after the conclusion of treatment to prevent bruises and burns. Breaks are required between treatments to allow the skin to heal itself properly. After treatment, no drugs are to be taken for one to three weeks.

Can PRP help with hair loss?

Our clinic is mostly focused on improving the skin using PRP treatment, but it can also be used to help with the loss of hair. This dynamic substance helps to increase the blood supply to any existing hair follicles, it increases their thickness, it controls the growth cycle of the hair, maintains the growth phase, stimulates dormant hair follicles to grow, and actually decreases hair loss going forward.
