Platelets are the cells in the blood that help tissue to heal and grow new cells. The PRP, injected into specific areas of the skin, act as a matrix that promotes your own collagen to grow, regenerates tissue, and thus acts as to naturally smooth and tighten the skin. In this way, PRP softens wrinkles, and creates smoother skin texture and tone.
How it works ?
PRP is a natural product created from your own body. A small amount of blood is drawn from you and placed in a sterile tube that is spun down in a centrifuge to separate the different components of the blood. Red and white blood cells are divided from the platelets and the plasma (the clear fluid). This plasma now contains a higher than normal number of platelets and is called platelet rich plasma, or PRP. The PRP is then injected on the treatment area.
What to expect after the procedure ?
Mild swelling, redness, or bruising fades within 1-3 days. The PRP is made from your own cells, virtually eliminating the possibility of negative side effects. Results begin to show 3-4 weeks after the treatment session and continue to improve with time.
