What is PRP Therapy?
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections have gained popularity for a variety of dermatological conditions, from hair loss treatment to skin rejuvenation. PRP treatment uses your own blood cells, delivering an abundance of growth factors that stimulate the body’s natural healing response. PRP is a non-surgical procedure that can dramatically improve your skin texture, tone etc.
Here are the list of reasons why you should give it a try:
1. Helps in Skin Rejuvenation
PRP therapy stimulates collagen production which in turn tightens thinning skin, effectively smoothing wrinkles and fine lines. It also helps by improving overall skin texture and tone. Platelet-rich plasma therapy treatment can dramatically reverse years of skin damage.
2. Diminish Acne Scars and post-traumatic Scars
By injecting the PRP under the scars, new collagen production can be stimulated and therefore reduce scars. Platelet-rich plasma therapy with a combination of other scar treatments like Fractions CO2, Erbium YAG, and Microneedling can give the best results in improving scar depth and skin texture.
3. Improves Hair Growth
Platelet-rich plasma treatment reduces hair loss and increases the diameter of hairs and the density of hair growth. It can address hair issues like pattern hair loss. And also stimulate the growth of hair transplants.
4. Effective in Treating Delicate Areas
PRP is extremely effective for treating delicate areas, such as under eye area where you often notice signs of aging first.
5. A Natural Type Of Injectable
PRP Treatment uses your own blood cells without the addition of any foreign products. It involves drawing a small sample of your blood, which is then centrifuged to separate the plasma rich in platelets from the other blood particles. The platelet-rich plasma is then injected into the treatment area to stimulate collagen and elastin production.
6. It’s Safe
Since PRP uses your own blood, It is very safe. It’s not a new treatment, for a long time it has been recognized and used in the hospital system for its effective wound healing properties.
7. Results Are Long-Lasting
Results from PRP Treatment take between three to four weeks to appear but are long-lasting, typically lasting 12 to 18 months after an initial series of treatments.
