- What is PRP therapy (Platelet Rich Plasma).
PRP Facial Treatments use platelets in their own blood. To reverse the signs of ageing by restoring the rejuvenated appearance of the face and improving the appearance of lines and wrinkles. Platelets in the blood are the superhero cells in our body, as they contain growth factors and bioactive proteins that help to heal ligaments, tissues, tendons, muscles and bones. By concentrating platelets and reinjecting PRP into the skin, the benefits of PRP reach deep into the skin to provide an improved look, including fewer lines and wrinkles.
- How is the procedure done?
Medical procedures using platelet-enriched plasma (PRP) were developed in 2003 by RegenLab in Lausanne in Switzerland. PRP injections are currently some of the preferred minimally invasive methods for improving skin and hair quality.
- The doctor extracts a small amount of blood.
- This blood is centrifuged, so only the blood platelets remain.
- The Plaquettes (PRP) are then injected into the skin using a very fine needle.
- The enriched Plasma produces slowly but certainly a younger, more firm and tighter skin.
Treatment is completely safe. The major advantage of a PRP treatment is that it is a natural substance of the body. More natural than this!
- Is it a painful procedure?
Most patients say about the PRP-type facelift that it is deprived of pain. But if you want, we can ensure intervention under intravenous sedation. You will be fully asleep in fact for which you will not notice injections.
During the consultation with your doctor you decide what anesthetic you want. The procedure lasts between 20 and 40 minutes and can be performed under local anesthesia. If you prefer, intravenous sedation is also possible.
- The amount of blood used?
About 2 tablespoons of blood, which is harvested before the procedure, is used in the facial PRP procedure. The blood will be centrifuged in a centrifuge for about 15 minutes to separate the blood components and concentrate the platelets.
- What are the best candidates?
Because the PRP facial procedure uses its own blood of the patient, there are very rare adverse effects following treatment, but a person who is undergoing treatment for cancer, blood diseases, and other conditions may not be a candidate for facial PRP. With 1-2 weeks before the procedure, patients should avoid smoking and alcohol, as well as anti-inflammatory drugs like aspirin.
- Surgical Facelift?
For those who want a more efficient and long-term rejuvenation option, Facial Lifting, Eyebroul lifting
, or Blefaroplasty
It will substantially improve the appearance, by smoothing the skin and lifting facial traits left to give the face a more refreshed and rejuvenating appearance. PRP facial or Vampire FACELIFT improves skin condition, but does not remove excess skin.
