Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) treatment is a non-surgical cosmetic procedure that addresses ageing signs, such as wrinkles, sagging skin, hyperpigmentation, and dark circles around the eyes.
Plasma is a blood substance rich in recovery and growth factors, which promote collagen and new blood vessels production, resulting in healthier, younger-looking skin.
If you’re looking into non-surgical and safe treatment options for rejuvenated skin and youthful glow, Novomed dermatologists and skin specialists have all the answers you need!
How Does PRP Skin Treatment Work?
Our blood is made up of red and white blood cells, plasma, and platelets. The latter contributes to blood clotting and producing growth factor proteins. PRP treatment uses your own plasma and platelets to heal acne and surgery scars, reduce fine lines and wrinkles, and even out discoloration or dark spots.
Your doctor will take a small sample of your blood (usually for your arm) and spin it in a centrifuge to separate protein-rich plasma and platelets from other blood components. The plasma will then be injected into different parts of your face to stimulate cell growth, rejuvenation, collagen production and help rejuvenate your skin.
Platelet-rich plasma offers minimal risk of complications or allergic reactions because it is made from a patient’s own blood, making it a safer and more effective option than other anti-ageing skin treatments. However, possible side effects include Bruising, soreness, and redness, but they should subside within a few days, and most people can resume their daily activities the following morning.
Who Is A Good Candidate For PRP Skin Treatment?
This procedure is effective on all skin types and ages, and anyone can be a great candidate for PRP as long as they’re in good overall health. However, PRP treatment is not recommended for patients with abnormal plasma levels, clotting problems, or severe liver damage.
What Are PRP Treatment Benefits?
- Reduce Wrinkles and Fine Lines
This treatment improves dermal collagen levels through growth factors and skin needling, which helps to reduce fine lines and wrinkles by tightening and thickening the skin. PRP can also benefit people suffering from acne or rosacea, making it an excellent treatment for general skin rejuvenation.
- Improves Skin Tightening And Firmness
Our skin loses its firm tissues and produces less collagen as we get older. Creases and dark circles start to form around the eyes, while lips and cheeks become notably thinner and pale. PRP treatment helps your skin produce the necessary amount of collagen to fill sagging areas, plump up the lips, and re-define cheeks without undergoing surgical treatment.
- Enhance Moisture Absorption
PRP is an excellent method for protecting the inner layers of your skin from external toxins as it tightens your skin. The plasma helps in moisture retention since it works on unclogging pores, making it easier for the skin to absorb skincare products and provide better results.
- Refine Skin Tone Or Texture
If you have acne or surgical scars, stretch marks, discoloration, and other types of uneven skin tone or texture, You’ll be surprised by the remarkable difference in your skin appearance just a few days after one PRP treatment! Your skin will replace old and dead skin cells with new, healthy ones for vibrant, younger-looking skin.
- Long-Lasting Results
Although the overall results of PRP may require a few weeks to show, you will observe an immediate difference in your complexion post-treatment! PRP benefits will last 12 to 18 months, depending on your skin condition. Nevertheless, your doctor may recommend four treatments spaced four to eight weeks apart to maintain the best results.
