It is actually possible to embrace your aging skin more gracefully when you leverage your own blood cells to smooth out those age lines and creases. Inside you is the power to regenerate and heal all your body tissues. Stem cells do this for you every day of your life. Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Facial Rejuvenation is a breakthrough procedure that uses the healing power of your blood’s platelets and growth factors to stimulate a stem cell response. Stem cells help you to grow new blood vessels and collagen, regenerate and repair damaged skin and help reverse or slow the aging process.
What are the Advantages of Cosmetic PRP?
The potential benefits of PRP have garnered widespread interest in its use for regenerative and cosmetic purposes. Using the healing properties found in your own blood components, PRP can be used as a treatment for various cosmetic problems like rosacea, acne scars, crow’s feet, dark under-eye circles, loose skin, mild volume and collagen loss and fine lines and wrinkles.
In just a few weeks of treatment, an overall improvement in skin texture, tone and hydration becomes apparent. New blood vessels and collagen start to grow in three to six weeks. Over the next three to six months, volume correction and a reduction of fine lines and wrinkles occurs. The effects of PRP can last for one to two years and th proceeduret can be combined with fillers for quick volume correction.
Is Cosmetic PRP the Right Treatment for Me?
Cosmetic wants and needs vary from one woman to another, and the treaments available are individually addressed. Most of the time, women want to look rejuvenated, refreshed and youthful without looking over-plumped or frozen and most women prefer not to chemicals, toxins or invasive surgery. This is possible with the right combination of a balanced diet, healthy lifestyle, and properly chosen cosmetic procedures and skincare products.
There are some age-related concerns that respond better to cosmetic PRP, while others respond better to peels, hyaluronic acid fillers, a face lifting facial or laser resurfacing techniques. The effects of all these treatments are further enhanced when they are used together in the right way, under the guidance of a qualified skin care professional. Men and women of all ages can benefit greatly from PRP treatments.
What Happens During the PRP Treatment?
Before your PRP procedure, a consultation is necessary to assess cosmetic needs and figure out the best treatment combination to get your desired result. After this, blood is collected and immediately processed in a centrifuge that will separate the platelet-rich plasma from red blood cells, amino acids and other components of plasma. The area to be treated is numbed, and PRP is injected onto the skin using a micro-needling device. Appropriate after-care and follow-up is highly recommended.
Cosmetic PRP is a safe and simple process. Its most common side effects and mild bruising and swelling at the injection sites that can last for three to seven days. Since the PRP comes from your own blood, there is no risk for immune or allergic reaction, or disease transmission. The procedure is touted as the best facial treatment in anti-aging, cosmetic and regenerative medicine. Many types of face lifting facials on the market but only a qualified PRP therapy doctor in your area should administer this type of procedure.
