Injectables - Platelet Rich Plasma Treatment
PRP stands for Platelet Rich Plasma treatment. PRP is also known as the 'Hollywood Vampire Facelift' and improvements can be seen within one treatment.
PRP is a natural dermal filling as the contents are extracted from your own blood. PRP is a high concentration of your own blood which is centrifuged and only a fraction (the platelet rich plasma) is subsequently injected into key areas to help promote skin rejuvenation, reduce wrinkles, increase collagen production and improve scarring.
PRP contains growth factors that help to repair sun-damaged skin, wrinkles, acne and traumatic scars. PRP has also been used with success to treat hair loss (when treating within 5 years of begin). With PRP you are stimulating your body's immune system to rejuvenate skin by increasing collagen and elastin production. With PRP your body needs time to repair damaged tissue and first results can be seen after 10 days with maximum collagen stimulation after 3 months.
PRP treated skin is 3 times faster at healing compared to laser treatments.
As you receive an extract of your own blood there are no allergies and no communicable diseases associated with PRP treatment.
Most patients see best results when combining their PRP treatment with other anti-aging procedures such as neurotoxin injections, fillers and laser rejuvenation. Usually 2-3 treatments are needed and results of treatment can last up to 2 years (results may vary of course). Maintenance treatments are recommended after 9 to 12 months.
