As you age you’ll notice your body won’t look the same as it used to. You’ll notice wrinkles, sagging skin, pigmentation. You’ll maybe thinning hair or worse, hair loss. You’ll long for the days when your skin was tighter and your hair was thicker.
Perhaps you have noticed some of these changes and have wondered about potential treatment options, so that you can retain your youthful looks for longer.
In this blog, we’ll discuss what PRP treatments are and how they can be beneficial to you.
What are PRP treatments?
PRP stands for platelet-rich plasma. It is derived from your own blood (which sounds scary but is completely safe). In fact, because it is sourced from your own blood, it is actually safer than other methods and your body more readily accepts it.
It is a method that has been around since the 70’s. It’s used for all sorts of procedures and medical fields, such as cardiology, paediatrics, urology and ophthalmology. More recently though it has been an effective treatment in the hair and skin fields.
Something our clinics have tapped into and utilise to effectively help thousands of clients each year.
The blood is collected and then placed in a centrifuge, where it spins very fast in order to separate the various components of the blood. The plasma, which is nutrient rich and fill of platelets is then collected and injected into targeted areas of the body.
This procedure is ideal for both hair and skin treatments.
The injection sites are usually accompanied with micro-needling, which helps promote healing and blood flow.
Whether you are looking for hair growth treatments or skin rejuvenation, PRP could be an ideal solution for you.
PRP Treatments work for the following:
- Anti-wrinkle treatment
- Hair growth treatment
- Skin Pigmentation
- Patchy beards
- Various types of hair loss such as, hormone, age or stress related, alopecia and genetic hair loss.
- Hand rejuvenation
- Neck and Chin tightening
An important element to ensuring the success of PRP treatments is being early and being consulted. Noticing the signs of ageing or hair loss early can help you mitigate the symptoms by taking action before it’s too late.
Talking to professionals about your specific situation is key. Your goals and body type will differ from others so diving into a procedure or treatment without knowing the ins and outs and whether or not it is actually best for you can be a waste of time, money and a danger to your health.
