Mesotherapy with platelet-rich plasma (PRP)2018-01-03T13:57:48+00:00

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP)

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a powerful anti-ageing treatment that involves using a patient’s own blood as an injectable, to treat a variety of indications, such as hair loss, sports injuries, scars, wound healing and anti ageing.

PRP stands for Platelet Rich Plasma. Platelets are full of Growth Factors which regulate the life of any cell in the body. All body organs possess quiescent stem cells and once activated can lead to the formation of healthy new tissue.

PRP Therapy uses your own Plasma which has been separated from your Red Blood Cells which are activated and then injected back into your body.

PRP – benefits

Because these are your own cells there is no chance of rejection, infection or allergy.

PRP – collagen

The ageing process is like a domino effect which happens in Bone, Muscle, Fat and Skin. Once the process has started, the only way to address/arrest this is to intervene with collagen producing treatments such as PRP

FAQs

What is your overall opinion of the role that PRP therapy should play in facial restoration?2017-12-24T00:47:15+00:00

PRP therapy is very promising in facial restoration. Results are optimal when patients receive a combination of PRP, dermal fillers, and laser therapy.

How does PRP therapy compare with injections of filler, Botox(Botox® Cosmetic; Allergan, Inc; Irvine, California), or surgical facelifts?2017-12-24T00:46:47+00:00

This procedure can be combined with dermal fillers, Botox injections, and laser surgery, as well as facial surgery. PRP builds tissue over time, whereas traditional filler breaks down over time.

How long are the improvements maintained? If necessary, can the procedure be repeated, and if so, with what anticipated outcome?2017-12-24T00:46:15+00:00

PRP can be repeated, and better results are seen with a total of 2-3 treatments given 3-4 months apart. Patients can expect to see better results as they receive more treatments. With time, the results of PRP get better and better.

For what types of patients is this procedure most and least suitable?2017-12-24T00:45:50+00:00

Any patient who wishes to reduce volume loss, fine lines, and textural changes of the skin is suitable for this procedure. It also appeals to the patient who is looking for a natural approach to volumising the face and treating or reducing fine lines.

What are the risks or complications?2017-12-24T00:34:17+00:00

Because this treatment is formed from the patient’s own blood, there is no risk for rejection, infection, or an allergic reaction.

What type of results can generally be expected?2017-12-24T00:33:55+00:00

The results are subtle, with gradual improvement in the injected area over a 3- to 5-week period. Full correction occurs at 4-7 weeks and can last as long as 18 months especially when combined with good quality maintenance programs such as skin care and lifestyle changes.

How long does the procedure take, and how is it performed?2017-12-24T00:33:34+00:00

This cutting-edge rejuvenation is a quick 20-minute procedure. After 9 cm3 of blood (approximately 1 vial) is drawn from the patient, it is spun down in a centrifuge for 6 minutes at a pre-calculated speed to retrieve the most viable fibrin and platelets. After centrifugation, the platelet and fibrin component of the blood (the top layer) is extracted and re-injected into the area of concern.

By what mechanisms do injections of PRP restore facial appearance?2017-12-24T00:33:00+00:00

Platelets play a role in stopping bleeding and in repairing damaged blood vessels and cells in the body. Platelets also contain substances called “growth factors” that activate and rejuvenate cells in our body. Unlike fillers that use various synthetic substances, PRP uses the patient’s natural biology to address skin defects and volume loss, triggering production of new cells and collagen formation.
