PRP-PLATELET RICH PLASMA
Skin rejuvenation using the body’s own platelets
Do you consider to have a treatment that will rejuvenate the skin without injecting a foreign substance? Try this PRP treatment that works by injecting ones own platelets to stimulate the skin using only the patients’ own blood.
What is Platelet Rich Plasma?
Using the healing power of one’s own blood has been used for decades. This technique was popular in the fields of orthopaedic and dentistry before finding its way into aesthetics. Especially whenever tissue stimulation was needed to ensure blood circulation in order to help healing, such as with tendon injuries, this technique proved effective.
PRP stands for Platelet Rich Plasma. The plasma that is used for injection has been centrifuged to separate the different components of the blood, which has been drawn from the patients’ arm.
Once injected with a fine needle, the platelets will release growth factors that will influence the skin in which it is injected. They stimulate the blood circulation and growth of collagen, hence ‘rejuvenating’ the skin.
The stimulation of collagen, blood circulation, elastin growth en hydration will leave your skin looking youthful. The effect will be visible a few weeks after the treatment up to six months. Because of the use of blood some clinics offer this treatment using the spectacular name: “Vampire Facelift”.
Face, Neck, Decolletage, Hands
This treatment can be done in the facial skin. But it is also effective in the neck, decolletage, or hands. It can be safely combined with other treatments such as laser, chemical peels, Botox or dermal filler injections.
This treatment is not invasive, fast and safe. Because of the use of autologous material, the body will not overreact to the injections.
Combined with hyaluronic acid
To enjoy a enhanced effect of the PRP treatment a combination with hyaluronic acid filler is an option. The filler adds to the hydrating and strenghening effect immediately.
