PRP Treatment For Skin - How Is It The Best?

A technique that has been used effectively for quite some time to mend sports injuries is currently turning into the treatment of choice for women to improve their skin problems like wrinkles, scars, sunburns and even dark circles under their eyes.

The Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) treatment, is becoming very famous because of its natural status and the promising results it shows. It uses the plasma taken from the patient's own blood rather than chemicals infused into the body. The chances of any side effects are close to zero considering all the cases so far. The treatment has turned out to be famously known as the Platelet-Rich Plasma Facelift or the vampire facelift.

Here is how the procedure takes place:

  • This procedure involves drawing blood from your arm, isolating the platelets, and then infusing them into your skin by a method called of micro needling.
  • Plasma is infused inside the skin with the help of microneedling.
  • Since the platelets are high in hormones, and the micro needling allows the skin to recover, the whole technique is intended to help cell regeneration.

There are no scars afterwards
Most doctors who perform the PRP procedures, ice their patients' appearances quickly after the surgery to limit the permanent scarring or wounding that can happen at the infusion points. Icing will likewise help limit any swelling or skin bothering for patients who have delicate skin. Every one of these side-effects are reversible and often diminish within a couple of days.

Patients with highly sensitive skin may need to play it safe as prescribed by their specialists. Allow adequate intervals between the medications so the skin has sufficient energy to recover itself.


It is said that PRP has lasting effects, know how?

  • Women who have had the Platelet-Rich Plasma Facelift treatment discovered their wrinkles look surprisingly better a while after they have had the medicines.
  • That is based on the fact that the plasma rejuvenates their skin's undeveloped cells to create more collagen, develop new cells and actually revive their skin.
  • The new cell development in your skin created by the Platelet Rich Plasma takes weeks to months, which is the reason it looks so much better after certain amount of time passes.

There are no bad side effects of this procedure, why?

  • Platelet Rich Plasma truly recovers the new cells in the patient's body wherever it is infused.
  • It enables the body to heal itself in a regular manner without using chemicals or substances of any other kind.
  • The likelihood of any infection or contamination is practically nil on the grounds that the plasma is taken from the patient’s own body.
