PLATELET RICH PLASMA (PRP) TREATMENT
What is PRP?
PRP is a well-known acronym for ‘Platelet Rich Plasma’ which is the white blood cells derived from your own blood and then injected back into your body in the area requiring regenerative and rejuvenation treatment. Approximately 10ml – 15ml of blood is taken from your arm, similar to when you have a blood test, it is then put into a machine called a centrifuge which spins the blood at a very high speed. The end product is a vial of blood which has been separated into 3 parts, red blood cells, platelet rich plasma and platelet poor plasma. The red blood cells are discarded and the plasma is prepared for redistribution by injection or microneedling to the desired area. Platelets play a vital role in tissue repair and regeneration and PRP injections have been used throughout many disciplines for many years, in particular in acute sports injuries involving ligament and muscle damage repair. Platelets regulate the various functions involved in the wound healing process.
PRP Face, Neck & Under Eye’s
Rejuvenation of the Face and Neck with your body’s own liquid gold…
Ageing of the human skin results in from a combination of a gradual decline in function over time (intrinsic ageing) together with cumulative damage caused by environmental factors (extrinsic ageing) which includes, smoking, exposure to chemicals and sun exposure (UVB Radiation). With age, degeneration of connective tissue, the decrease in hyaluronic acid polymers and decrease in fibroblasts/collagen is a natural process. PRP is used for for the activation of dermal fibroblasts and collagen synthesis in order to trigger skin regeneration and rejuvenation. More recently, popularity of PRP in face and neck rejuvenation has risen significantly. PRP can be administered as a standalone treatment or used in combination with other medical aesthetic applications ie. muscle relaxant injections, dermal fillers, dermaroller and/or PDO threads. Patients often desire to have natural treatment involving the use of their own autologous substance (meaning coming from their own body) and PRP is the preferred option for a minimally invasive treatment which visibly improves the skin quality with minimal downtime.
PRP for Under Eye’s
Although it is often used for the full face and neck (by injection / microneedling), the popularity of treating the lower eyelids / under eyes has increased due to its high success rates in reducing dark circles and under eye bags. The lower eyelids / under eyes are the most delicate area of the face. Research shows that a series of PRP injections in the lower eyelid region is a safe, effective and virtually pain-free treatment option for an area with otherwise limited treatment alternatives. Under eye skin is increased in volume and elasticity whilst wrinkles and dark circles appear reduced.
PRP Scalp for Hair Thinning and Hair Loss
It is inevitable for the modern-day woman to experience hormonal changes at different stages of life and also periods of high stress caused by external factors such as work pressure and/or relationship pressure. Hair thinning and accelerated daily hair fall is a common biproduct of both hormonal changes (androgenetic alopecia) and/or stress in women. It is also common in post-partum women.
Women are generally ideal candidates for scalp PRP as it works best in places where hair is thinning rather than completely bald. Most commonly, women experience hair thinning around their hairline and also on the crown area. PRP works by reinvigorating the existing hair follicles that may be shrinking or sleeping. The platelets promote the follicles to produce stronger thicker hair which is unlikely to fall out at the same rate as before.
The recommended treatment protocol for hair loss is 4 to 6 sessions at 6 to 8 week intervals.
