  • THIS PROCESS IS SAFE - Almost all skin tones show that this process is effective because your own enriched plasma is used (Patient selection is important if results are to be expected)

 

  • Preparation is simple and quick

 

  • It can be used in multiple areas

 

  • For ages of 25 and 80 years (most eligible candidates)

 

 

WHICH FACIAL AND BODY AREAS CAN BE TREATED?

WHAT IS THE PROCESS OF FACIAL REJUVENATION with PRP?

 

  1. We will assess the degree of skin aging, perform a skin analysis, and recommend a sensible treatment with reasonable outcome.
  2. The options of facial rejuvenation are explained to you, including efficacy and safety. Cost analysis is discussed and the number of sessions possibly required.
  3. A photograph of the skin is taken to assist the follow-up and progress of the improvement
  4. Prior to treatment a blood sample of 20 – 55ml is extracted from the patient. This blood is placed in the centrifuge for about 15 minutes. When centrifugation is complete your plasma will be separated from your red blood cells. The rich platelets are extracted and prepared for injection.
  5. The PRP is injected into the skin (a topical numbing agent may be used).  Platelets gradually increase collagen to increase skin thickness and overall health of the skin.

 

    This process and injection time takes approximately 45 minutes – 1 hour in total.

 

 

ARE RESULTS IMMEDIATE?

No. Swelling from the fluid is what you will see and feel first. Once the swelling has subsided you will not see much change at all. Over a few weeks the Platelets will stimulate the growth factors which will assist in more collagen growth.

 

 

HOW MANY TREATMENTS ARE REQUIRED?

This will depend upon the health and age of your skin. Normally it is advised to have

2 – 3 treatments 4 weeks apart. However your clinician will determine your treatment protocol according to your skin condition.

 

 

HOW LONG DO RESULTS LAST?

Treatment results vary however in most patients the results last up to 18-24months. Yearly touch-up treatments are recommended and will maintain the results.
