Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy (PRP) is a long-established procedure for healing wounds and improving the appearance of skin. It is used in many different medical applications including neurosurgery, cardiac surgery, dentistry, orthopaedics and cosmetics.
This therapy has become very popular in the fight against ageing and hair loss. Men in particular, are becoming very interested in and attracted to this so-called “Dracula Therapy” for hair growth.
Because the therapy only uses what you naturally produce, the PRP treatment is a totally natural procedure and does not use any other materials or derivatives. Studies show that there is a minimal risk of allergic reactions and complications to this therapy, and because the blood plasma is native to the patient, there is no risk of rejection or disease transmission. Of course it is important to speak with your practitioner to understand your suitability and the risks involved.
A Winning Formula for Anti-Aging
Collagen provides structure and elasticity to your skin. But you lose collagen as you age, and this in part causes your skin to become thinner, weaker and visibly older. By counteracting the diminishment and breakdown of collagen, PRP breathes new life into your skin cells and encourages them to produce this important protein. PRP can be used anywhere on your body, including the face, neck, décolletage, elbows, knees. Stretch marks, wound and scars can be eliminated and healed close to 100%.
How PRP works for facial rejuvenation?
PRP is a relatively simple therapy. A small amount of blood is extracted from your arm just like when you give a blood sample. Your blood is then treated to separate the plasma and platelets from the red blood cells and white blood cells. This platelet-rich plasma is then injected in the cleaned anaesthetised skin. The PRP treatment rarely takes longer than 45 minutes. It usually involves a treatment plan including multiple sessions over the course of 4-6 weeks.
Swelling, bruising or redness can occur straight after the procedure and last for about a day. Bruising sometimes occurs at the needle site, and last for a couple of days.
You should notice improvements to the tone and texture of your skin within 3 weeks, though full collagen regeneration takes up to 3 months so you will continue to see improvements over this period. Over the first few days and weeks, the platelets injected into your skin releases growth factors and pre stem cells, and these will help to grow even more collagen. Results from PRP can last up to 18 months, and you can maintain your results beyond this time with touch-up treatments.
Hair Loss Treatment
Hair loss can affect up to 70% of men at some point in their life. This process can start at a very early stage for few, but most men will suffer from some degree of hair loss by the age of 60.
Hair loss is caused by a combination of factors, including hormonal imbalances, environmental and stress factors. A non-surgical solution for hair restoration is the cutting-edge Platelet Rich Plasma. The PRP therapy is using your own blood to safely increase re-growth of thicker hair. For treating hair loss, PRP is injected directly into the scalp. The Platelet Rich Plasma therapy is a highly effective hair loss and transplant boosting treatment due to taking advantage of the various growth factors of platelets, such as cell proliferation and tissue regeneration. The PRP therapy it takes about 80 minutes to complete and hair growth can be seen as early as 2 months.
The procedure is relatively painless. After the PRP injections some mild swelling of the forehead is noticeable, but this will resolve in approximately 48 hours.
