PRP Platelet Rich Plasma

Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy for the skin, is a popular treatment for skin in aesthetic medicine. It involves using the patient's own platelets to rejuvenate the skin, improve its texture and tone, reduce fine lines and wrinkles to promote a more youthful appearance. PRP contains growth factors that promote cell growth, collagen production, and tissue regeneration. When applied to the skin, these growth factors stimulate the body's natural healing processes, leading to improved skin quality.

Before & After

What is PRP Skin Therapy?

PRP skin therapy uses the patient’s own blood to promote skin regeneration and rejuvenation. The procedure involves drawing a small amount of blood, processing it to concentrate the platelets, and then injecting the platelet-rich plasma into the skin.

How Does PRP Skin Therapy Work?

  1. Blood Collection: A small vial of blood is drawn from the patient’s arm.
  2. Centrifugation: The blood is spun in a centrifuge to separate the platelet-rich plasma from other components.
  3. PRP Extraction: The concentrated platelets are extracted for use.
  4. Injection: The PRP is injected into the skin using fine needles or microneedling devices.

Applications of PRP Skin Therapy

  • Facial Rejuvenation: Often referred to as a “vampire facial,” PRP is used to rejuvenate the face, giving it a youthful appearance.
  • Scar Treatment: Effective in treating acne scars, surgical scars, and stretch marks.
  • Hair Restoration: PRP is also used on the scalp to promote hair growth in individuals with thinning hair or hair loss.

Procedure Details

  1. Preparation: The patient’s skin is cleaned and numbed with a topical anesthetic.
  2. Injection: PRP is injected into the targeted areas of the skin or applied topically during microneedling.
  3. Post-Treatment Care: Patients may experience mild redness and swelling, which usually subsides within a few days. It’s important to follow aftercare instructions, which typically include avoiding sun exposure and certain skincare products.

Efficacy and Results

  • Visible Improvement: Most patients notice an improvement in skin texture and tone within a few weeks. Full results are typically seen after several sessions.
  • Longevity: Results can last up to 18 months, with maintenance treatments recommended for prolonged benefits.

Benefits of PRP Therapy

Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy offers several benefits specifically for the skin, making it a popular choice for cosmetic and rejuvenation treatments. Here are five key benefits of PRP for skin:

  • Reduction in Fine Lines and Wrinkles: PRP stimulates collagen and elastin production, which helps to reduce fine lines and wrinkles. Collagen is crucial for maintaining skin elasticity and firmness, resulting in smoother and younger-looking skin.
  • Improvement in Skin Texture and Tone: PRP promotes skin regeneration and cell growth, leading to improved texture and tone. It can help to even out skin pigmentation issues and reduce the appearance of scars, resulting in a more radiant complexion.
  • Enhanced Skin Hydration: PRP treatments can improve the skin’s ability to retain moisture. This is beneficial for individuals with dry or dehydrated skin, as it helps to plump and hydrate the skin, giving it a more supple and youthful appearance.
  • Reduction of Acne Scarring: PRP therapy can help to improve the appearance of acne scars by promoting tissue regeneration and collagen synthesis. It aids in smoothing out uneven skin texture caused by acne scars, leading to smoother and clearer skin.
  • Stimulation of Hair Growth: While not directly a skin benefit, PRP has also shown promising results in stimulating hair growth. When applied to the scalp, PRP can promote hair follicle health and hair growth, making it a beneficial treatment for individuals experiencing hair thinning or hair loss.

    FAQs

    How does it work?

    HIFU (High intensity focused Ultrasound) uses the power of Ultrasound waves to lift and tighten skin safely. Energy generated from Ultrasound is significantly different than light such as IPL and Lasers or Radio-Frequency energy. This is due to Hifu’s unique ability to protect the skin surface, while precisely targeting and penetrating beyond the Dermis and Foundation layers, where structural weakening starts (SMAS).

     

    The area targeted with HIFU is heated to 65 – 75°C, causing thermal coagulation which in turn stimulates natural healing and an increase in elastin and collagen regeneration and production.

    Although HIFU can show the immediate effect with skin tone and texture, the wound healing process takes around 6 – 12 weeks to fully show results of lifting and tightening that may last for years.

    Do I have to do anything before my treatment?

    Before any treatment at Dermacore, a free client consultation takes place. During this consultation, client requirements and client suitability (based on medical history and lifestyle) for treatment are assessed. Based on these findings, a personalised treatment plan is created to help deliver the results as per client expectations.

    How quickly will I see results?

    Some patients feel improved tone and texture immediately after treatment. However, optimum results of uplifting, tightening, firmness, improved tone and texture are seen between 6 weeks – 12 weeks.

    How long will the results last?

    Although results may vary from person to person (based on the level of skin laxity), in general, results can last from 6 months – 2 years plus. Therefore, is it of paramount importance that aftercare advice is followed to increase the longevity of results.

    How many treatments do I need?

    The number of sessions depends on the clients’ age and skin condition. Even though one treatment may be enough on a person with light to moderate skin laxity, others may benefit from additional treatment four weeks post initial procedure.

    Is it painful?

    HIFU Facelift is not a painful procedure; however, some patients feel pinprick or heat sensation in the treated area, especially around the mouth and chin. This is generally a good indication of commencement of collagen production and regeneration process. Although comfort levels may vary from client to client, these sensations are temporary and subside post-treatment.

    Which areas can be treated?

    HIFU applies to treat signs of ageing areas around eyes, mouth, chin and neck (including décolletage). It helps to treat frown lines effectively, crow’s feet, nasolabial folds, sagging skin around the jawline, neck, decolletage, double chin and other fine lines and wrinkles.

    What is the recovery time?

    There is no recovery time, and you can return to your daily routine immediately.

    Are there any side effects?

    As HIFU is a non-invasive procedure, there is no risk of infection. However, some clients may experience mild redness and or tenderness; this should fade within a few days and is often not particularly noticeable.

    What aftercare advice do you offer?

    We recommend that clients avoid the sun, reduce alcohol intake, don’t take hot showers or baths (immediately after treatment) and drink more water. This will promote skin and general well being and aid in the healing process. In addition, we recommend Lithemis Resync Serum as it boosts the collagen production and maintains the skin’s optimum moisture levels, so that skin looks full and plump.

    Can you use it in combination with other treatments to enhance results?

    HIFU can be used in conjunction with Radiofrequency skin tightening to enhance results
