PRP

prp-750x430

When searching for treatments to aid in skin rejuvenation the PRP system is achieving amazing results. This treatments popularity is due to the fact that is it utilizing your body’s own healing potential, and stimulating natural skin rejuvenation without the use of chemicals.

If you need a reference point Kim Kardashian is an avid user and her youthful appearance is a testament to its amazing results.

The use of Platelet Rich Plasma is not new; it has long been recognized for its accelerated wound healing properties in such applications as surgery and sports injuries. Now this technology is being used for aesthetic purposes with outstanding results.

When you have a PRP treatment the practitioner will take some blood from you just like if you were having a routine blood test. This blood is then processed using a centrifuge to separate the platelets from the rest of the blood making the concentration of platelets three to four times the normal level.

The processing part of the treatment doesn’t take long – on average 20 minutes, as the different elements are divided – red blood cells, white blood cells, platelets etc, then the clear platelet rich plasma is ready to inject back in the places that need the most attention.

The platelet rich plasma that is injected is a concentrated formula of your own platelets which makes it rich in growth factors. Such growth factors are needed to repair the body, and come in handy too when trying to fight the signs of ageing

When platelets are activated in the body, they release healing proteins called growth factors. These growth factors have a range of responsibilities, a predominant feature of which is their ability to accelerate tissue repair and improve wound healing. The injection entry point causes a small wound which activates the platelets to start ‘repairing’ that area.

When PRP is injected into the skin, the injection entry point causes a small wound which activates the platelets and lets them get to work repairing the tissue in that area.

Effectively PRP is encouraging your body to use it’s own processes but more effectively in the places that are starting to need a bit of extra help.

It’s a much more natural approach to anti-ageing – both for the fact you’re using your body’s own material and for the fact the results develop over time.

Immediately post treatment you may have some redness and spotting but in terms of looking more youthful collagen rejuvenation can. It also makes sense that the younger you are the better the result as your body’s natural healing processes are quicker.

Gradually your skin will have a subtle improvement that will give you a fresher look than before – without putting anything foreign into the skin.

To increase the impact of the results Dr Zacharia suggests having 3 treatments at 6 week intervals and then you should be able to enjoy the benefits of PRP for up to 18 months after that.

PRP is an effective method to treat fine lines and to improve the overall texture of the skin by tissue regeneration and rejuvenation as well as extracellular matrix formation. It tightens and thickens the skin is not just limited to facial areas.
