This treatment is natural in that your own cells are used and injected into the specified areas. Since a distillate of growth factors from your own blood (platelet rich plasma) is used, there should be no side effects from the material injected. The body reacts to the treated cells as it does to a wound and immediately starts repairing the tissue. You should see improvements immediately, although there is usually a return to prior treatment status in 3-5 days as the water is absorbed and prior to the complete action of the fibroblasts. This stimulates new blood flow with new blood vessels (neovascularization).
The results of this treatment commonly lasts 15 – 18 months but do not last as long in some people.
PRP or ‘Platelet Rich Plasma’ is a process whereby blood is taken from the patient and processed through a centrifuge to extract the cells in the plasma that are high in nutrients and growth factors. This platelet rich plasma is then injected back into the treatment area both superficially and at a deeper dermal level for maximum effectiveness.
PRP is typically performed on the face, neck, hands, décolletage and in the treatment of hair loss, the improved tone, texture and thickness help to achieve a more youthful appearance. It can also be performed in the genital area for rejuvenation.
