Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is a natural product generated in the human body. The syringe extracts a small quantity of blood of the patient and rotates in a centrifuge to make the red blood cells and white blood cells separated from plasma and platelets. The plasma created in the centrifuge contains a high number of platelets than the normal which is termed as platelet rich plasma or PRP.
The platelet rich plasma therapy is the process in which the plasma that has more platelet count is injected in the areas of dark, wrinkled and saggy skin. The injected plasma helps to produce collagen and reproduce tissue that is needed to give a rejuvenated and smooth skin.
PRP injections can be slightly uncomfortable but patients gain relief sooner. Generally, it takes 15-20 minutes for the procedure. It is comparatively painless and there is no need of any special care of the skin after the treatment. Only the daily routine of skin care will do. There is no report of side effects as the plasma is created from the patient’s own blood.
The objective of PRP therapy is to gain a full face with rejuvenated skin, open pores, no wrinkles and softer lines. This therapy needs at least 3-4 months to show the desired results. A skillful and knowledgeable dermatologist should be consulted before going for this treatment. Many a time, 6 RED Light LED therapy is prescribed by the dermatologist to speed up the process of skin rejuvenation.
