How does Platelet Rich Plasma Work?

First, a blood sample is taken from the patient. The blood is then centrifuged to separate its components. The platelet-rich portion is collected.

PRP contains growth factors (such as PDGF, TGF-β, and VEGF) that play a crucial role in tissue repair and regeneration.

When injected into the target area (e.g., joints, skin, or scalp), PRP stimulates cellular processes.

The increased concentration of growth factors accelerates healing, reduces pain, and promotes tissue regeneration.

PRP injections can improve skin texture and stimulate collagen production.

Who is PRP recommended for?

Signs of Ageing:

Intradermal or subdermal PRP injections improve skin texture, color, and reduce wrinkle depth.

Topical PRP application after microneedling synergistically enhances skin texture and reduces wrinkles.

Acne Scars or Wounds:

Microneedling with topical PRP significantly improves acne scar appearance and quality of life.

PRP, when injected or applied after laser therapy, accelerates healing, reduces erythema, and improves skin elasticity.

What are the Optimal Results?

The optimal results ofPlatelet-Rich Plasma (PRP)aesthetic treatments can vary based on individual factors and the specific area being treated. However, here are some general outcomes:

  • Improved Skin Texture: PRP injections can enhance skin texture, making it smoother and more radiant.
  • Reduced Fine Lines and Wrinkles: PRP stimulates collagen production, which helps minimize wrinkles.
  • Even Skin Tone: PRP may reduce hyperpigmentation and improve overall skin tone.
  • Acne Scarring: PRP combined with microneedling can improve the appearance of acne scars and other types of scars.

Considerations before Treatment

  1. Hydration: Ensure adequate hydration for 72 hours before the procedure. Hydrated skin allows for better PRP availability.
  2. Avoid Alcohol: Refrain from alcohol consumption for two days prior to the procedure. Alcohol can contribute to excessive bleeding and bruising.

Importance of Cosmeceuticals in PRP Treatments

Skin Rejuvenation:

  • PRP promotes collagen synthesis, improving skin elasticity and texture.
  • Cosmeceuticals enhance hyaluronic acid production, bolstering hydration.
  • Increased angiogenesis further promotes tissue restoration and overall rejuvenation.

Fine Lines and Wrinkles:

  • Cosmeceuticals complement PRP by improving skin quality and texture.
