PRP or platelet rich plasma is an effective therapy that can be used in a variety of areas: oral surgery, orthopedics, plastic surgery and cosmetic treatments. PRP is a magic serum obtained from your own blood, which contains stem cells, proteins, platelets (thrombocytes) and nutrients. When we inject PRP into damaged tissues, this plasma will stimulate the body to grow new cells and to hasten the healing process.
Uses of PRP in cosmetic procedures
PRP is the safest cosmetic procedure – it involves your own blood and cells, so your body will not react negatively. Our clients choose this treatment to reduce wrinkles or to get rid of deep creases, to eliminate acne scars or to reduce hair loss. PRP treatment is increasingly popular in skin rejuvenation. Studies have shown that PRP treatments improve skin elasticity and firmness, eliminate fine lines and sagging skin and even traumatic acne scars. After injection, the production of collagen is stimulated and you will get fully healthy and youthful skin. However, you may not see the results immediately, most clients notice a difference after 3 or 4 sessions.
At the moment, PRP or Vampire facial therapy is considered the most effective anti-aging treatment. It is a periodic procedure – the results will last as long as you follow our specialist’s advice and repeat the treatment from time to time. Don’t worry, it’s not painful at all. One to a few tubes of your own blood is taken and processed in a centrifuge to concentrate the platelets. Then the serum is injected directly into the affected area. This procedure takes a maximum of one hour. Even if the results are not shown immediately, your skin will feel rejuvenated. If you want to try this therapy with your own blood for skin aging, book an appointment at Deluxe Clinic!
PRP as a hair loss treatment
Studies have also shown interesting results in terms of hair loss – this PRP treatment is used especially when hair loss is a result of androgenetic alopecia, known as baldness. However, you should know that PRP is not a cure for this condition and you should receive multiple treatments to maintain hair growth (injections should be repeated every 3 – 6 months). In this case, the platelets are injected into targeted areas of the scalp, so you might experience swelling, headaches, scalp tenderness and itching. PRP contributes to hair growth, but studies have not yet confirmed the long-term effectiveness of this treatment.
PRP remains the best therapy when it comes to skin rejuvenation and you should try it if no other treatment seems to work. There is no risk, this treatment can not affect your skin in any way – no allergic reactions, no side effects, no chances of rejection.
