Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is the latest celebrity-endorsed trend in aesthetic medicine.
It is an extreme anti-aging treatment that uses the huge reservoirs of bioactive proteins released by platelets contained in your plasma to initiate and accelerate tissue repair and regeneration.
The after-session look guarantees you an amazing soft tissues makeover: your skin will be regenerated and the result of an astonishing glowing face will be seen in few days.
What is PRP Treatment?
The PRP treatment uses the plasma rich in platelets extracted from your own blood to be applied to your face and injected under your skin in a very simple and fast procedure.
Is it safe?
The plasma used and injected in the skin is extracted from your own blood, hence the procedure is very safe and transmission of blood-transmissible diseases such as HIV, Hepatitis, and other blood borne pathogens is impossible.
What is PRP mechanism of action?
PRP improves your skin texture by tightening the tissues and gives the skin a glow by improving skin quality. This is obtained thanks to the platelets contained in the plasma, which release growth factors that stimulate collagen production and initiate the soft tissues regeneration process.
How is the PRP injection procedure performed?
Around 20-60 ml of your blood are collected into a syringe, which will be placed in the centrifuge. This machine is designed to spin your blood at extremely high speed to separate the plasma from other blood components. The PRP is now formed, made by plasma rich in platelets, which release growth factors promoting the healing process. The PRP is extracted from the container using a special syringe and it can be either directly applied to your face or injected under the skin.
How long will the procedure take?
The ‘spinning’ process takes 15 minutes, and the procedure as a whole takes around 20 minutes.
Does it hurt?
The area treated will be numbed prior the procedure, making the treatment very comfortable.
How many sessions do I need to see results?
To reach the desired outcome, we recommend a session every 4-6 weeks for at least 4 months. The procedure can be safely repeated as much as required.
What should I expect after the procedure?
Some redness which will disappear in 24 hours. It is recommended not to use anti-inflammatory drugs to avoid interfering with the natural healing process expected by the treatment.
Can be PRP treatment combined with Microneedling?
Yes. The Combo Treatment of PRP and Microneedling gives astonishing results.
