It is a very safe remedy – primarily because we use your blood so that there is no chance of an allergic reaction or serious side effects. But compared to Botox, there is usually a more “pause” for long periods, which is why we do not recommend undergoing treatment within 3-4 weeks before a special event. The patient may experience swelling and redness in the treated areas, for example around the eyes, although it only lasts for 24 hours. Some bruising is also expected, although it can be covered with makeup after the initial 24-hour period, which may take anywhere from one to two weeks to completely disappear.
What is PRP:
Platelet rich plasma is harvested from your blood. This is done by collecting a small amount of blood (such as a blood test) and separating red blood cells from platelet cells. These resulting plaques are exposed again under the skin through a series of small injections. PRP therapy is not new to the world. It has been recognized to accelerate wound healing in surgery and sports injuries for some time.
Platelets are the “sticky glue” that stops bleeding when you hurt yourself. Its other function is to promote wound healing and repair by attracting growth cells. PRP treatment rejuvenates and tightens your skin, giving it a healthy glow.
It is ideal for people who suffer from:
– Fine lines and wrinkles
-Dry, dull complexion
It is used in the following areas:
– Full radiance for the face
-The eye area (upper and lower eyelids).
-Other areas of the body
How long will the results last?
PRP results last from 6 to 8 months or more, depending on the texture of the skin in the area where it is used
The doctor will assess the degree of skin aging, perform a skin analysis and recommend a reasonable treatment plan, and discuss expected treatment results, efficacy, and safety. The number of required treatment sessions is discussed, as well as the cost of those sessions. A photo of the skin is taken to help with follow-up and degrees of improvement. Before treatment, a blood sample of 10 or 25 ml is taken from your arm. The blood is immediately placed in a centrifuge for 8 minutes. Upon completion of the centrifugation, the plasma will be separated from the red blood cells. Platelet rich plasma is then extracted. PRP is then injected into the skin. Adequate pain is usually relieved with a local anesthetic cream although anesthesia injection can also be used. PRP can be a one-time facial rejuvenation treatment, but for best results, a course of treatments is performed to inject platelets and re-regeneration
