Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Treatment
What is Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy?
Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy or PRP is an emerging treatment in health care to rejuvenate your skin by stimulating collagen, the main component of connective tissue.
What are the benefits?
The therapy improves lines, wrinkles and texture with a gradual natural change. The therapy is also helpful for treating skin conditions and for general skin reconditioning. The most dramatic results so far have been seen with improvement of crepe skin problems in areas such as the neck, under eyes and décolletage areas.
How is the procedure performed?
Platelet-Rich Plasma Therapy is done in the treatment room. The treatment involves drawing blood from you just in the same way as it is taken for a blood test and then it is spun for around five minutes in a centrifuge to produce the platelet rich plasma (PRP). The PRP is then drawn into a small syringe. The mixture is then injected into clean, anaesthetized skin.
How many treatment sessions will be needed?
For better results the PRP is injected into the same areas over three sessions which are usually spaced around a month apart.
What are the possible complications and side effects of Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy?
There are almost no complications of this therapy. However, as with every kind of injection there is the possibility of slight bruising and appearance of pinkness or redness of the skin which usually fades away after a week or so.
