PRP Skin Treatment

Your body knows how to heal itself. That’s why PRP skin treatment is so powerful. It is sometimes referred to as a “vampire facial” because it uses a concentrate of your own blood to rejuvenate your tissues. It enhances the skin from the inside out, helping to treat the conditions that make your skin age.

PRP Skin Treatment Facts

PRP refers to platelet-rich plasma. This is a component of your blood that’s rich in white blood cells and growth factors. PRP encourages healing and has been used to quicken the healing of damaged ligaments, tendons, joints and muscles. You can use PRP to help your skin cells heal too.

When you’re young, your skin is elastic and plump. It heals quickly when it’s injured. As you age, the fibers that support your skin and provide flexibility begin to degrade. At the same time, our skin loses hyaluronic acid, a substance that helps it retain moisture. The combination of these processes leads to sagging skin, wrinkles and lines. The skin’s texture may be thinner, and you might notice more blood vessels under the surface. Your skin may even get irritated more easily, and wounds take longer to heal.

Many people try to correct the signs of ageing once they’re noticeable. However, many skin rejuvenation products aren’t absorbed deeply enough to be effective. Topical treatments may also contain chemicals that aren’t ideal for your body. PRP skin treatment goes beneath the surface to restore the skin from within. Some people call PRP treatment a natural filler, but it does more than add volume to the skin. It repairs it.

How Are PRP Treatments Done?

The health care professional takes a small blood sample from you. Then, the blood is spun through a centrifuge to separate the nourishing PRP.

The plasma is applied and mesoneedled combined with injecting into the skin to stimulate collagen production and regenerate the tissue. It tightens skin, smooths wrinkles and improves skin tone and texture. PRP can even improve the appearance of scars, treat acne and diminish the blotchiness and redness of rosacea.

What to Expect Before and After the Procedure

Most PRP skin procedures take about 45 minutes. Before the treatment, patients should stop taking any medications that influence platelet function, including some herbs and over-the-counter pain medications. You should talk to your physician before discontinuing any medication, though.

Be gentle with your skin following the procedure. It may be slightly red, tender or bruised. You may also feel tingling or pressure where the needles were introduced. These side effects are temporary. Using moisturizers that contain natural ingredients will replenish the moisture barrier, which is essential for healing.

Because skin cells need time to develop, you might not notice the results right away. The full effects of a PRP skin procedure typically show up within a few weeks or months. The benefits can last for up to 18 months. It is recommended for people to have maintenance treatments to sustain the youthful look.

PRP is a total rejuvenation to treated areas. On face it stimulates collagen and elastin production which firms and tightens thinning skin, effectively smoothing wrinkles and fine lines. Because it boosts collagen, it’s also a great treatment for improving overall skin texture and tone. It’s particularly good for people who suffer from rosacea or acne.
