Platelet Rich Plasma - PRP Overview
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) has multiple uses, but is most often used for:
Cosmetic: skin rejuvenation
Dermatology: scars, wounds, and ulcers healing
Orthopaedic: joints, muscles, and ligaments
The platelet rich plasma treatment uses the plasma in your blood to repair your skin. Plasma is rich in platelets which are important for clotting our blood and repairing our body. Platelets also release ‘growth factors’ which can stimulate stem cells to repair and produce new healthy tissue for the treated area. Platelet rich plasma is obtained by separating it from your blood with a centrifuge. Because your own blood is used, there is no danger of disease transmission or allergies.
We can apply the PRP treatment to pretty much any area of the face to begin the rejuvenation process. Typically we see patients seek this treatment around the eyes, cheeks, neck or jawline as these are generally the most common areas that show the signs of ageing. Because PRP uses your own blood and tissues, you can feel comfortable knowing that you are healing your body with tissue from your own body and with a minimally invasive treatment! With the PRP treatment – patients can apply makeup and return to their regular activities immediately. Patients typically notice the change within a few days after the treatment and can see results improve for some time afterwards.
