Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) has been used in many medical procedures over the years, and its safety is well established. PRP therapy involves injection of the patient’s own platelets and fibrin for the cosmetic treatment of wrinkles or scars in the face, hands and neck. It is less invasive than plastic surgery, takes about 30 to 45 minutes for each treatment, and offers improvement for up to 18 months.
PRP uses your own cells skin rejuvenation. Platelet Rich Plasma obtained from your blood contains platelets which work in the body to clog up cuts and tears. Platelets also have growth factors on the surface which stimulate collagen production when injected into the skin.
PRP has been used for facial rejuvenation since 2006 in Europe, UK, Australia and Japan.
The most common areas treated with PRP are skin around the eyes, cheeks and mid face, neck, jawline, chest and decolletage, and back of the hands.
Results are visible at three weeks and improve gradually over ensuing months with improvement in texture and tone. Skin care and light therapies can enhance the results. PRP is just one of several non surgical rejuvenation techniques used by women who want to look natural and refreshed.
