Platelet Rich Plasma Injections
As we age, our skin begins to change. For most, the aging process can bring on undesirable effects to facial skin, such as:
- Dull or grayish looking skin colour
- Less smooth skin texture
- Loss of elasticity and volume
- Appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
- Sagging, droopy, and tired-looking skin
Platelet Rich Plasma injections can reduce the signs of aging by flooding the treated area with regeneration cells that immediately begin to revitalize tissues.
Platelet Rich Plasma injections are made of a serum containing your own blood platelets to stimulate new cell growth. The procedure improves skin complexion and texture.
The therapy is non-invasive, with no side effects or risk of allergic reaction.
Human blood is composed of red blood cells (93%), white blood cells (6%), and platelets and plasma (1%). Platelet rich plasma (or PRP), concentrates on separating that 1%, creating a concentrated serum of platelets. Although they are known for their coagulating properties (to stop bleeding), platelets also release growth factors that recruit reparative cells and, hence, revitalize and heal tissues. In other words, platelets are cells that help soft tissue to heal and grow new cells. For this reason, PRP injections have a long history of success in treating sports injuries, arthritis, tendinitis, and other painful conditions.
In cosmetic medicine, PRP injections are used to treat specific areas of the skin to promote collagen growth and regenerate tissue; in order to obtain naturally smoother and tighter skin.
PRP Injections are highly effective for both men and women. Benefits include*:
- No risks of allergic reaction
- Minimal pain or discomfort
- Safe, non-invasive and non-surgical treatment
- Minimal side effects
Naturally Fresh and Youthful Skin
PRP is a groundbreaking medical treatment that improves and restores healthy, radiant and youthful looking skin.
When PRP is inserted into the skin, the injection causes a small injury that activates the platelets and allows them to do what they do best: repair the tissue in that area. Platelets do this by releasing healing proteins that are called growth factors. When platelet levels are extremely above their normal concentration (which is what happens during the PRP treatment), it boosts the skin’s ability to rejuvenate.
Essentially, the PRP skin treatment encourages the body to use its own natural healing process in the areas that need more help.
PRP can also be applied through a microneedling procedure widely known as The Vampire Facial™.
