Most of us experience a loss of volume and skin quality that result in the following: Crow’s feet, lip and frown lines,
deep depressions around the nose and mouth, volume loss in the cheeks, sagging around the jaw line and dehydrated skin.
Our faces becomes longer and more rectangular as the natural aesthetic curves diminish.The natural aging process can be accelerated by genetics, facial expressions and external factors. These all cause oxidative stress, a key component of the aging process, that can manifest as fine lines, hyper-pigmentation, unevenness of skin tone, sagging skin and advanced wrinkling.
What is Platelet Rich Plasma?
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is an extract of your own blood that contains three to five times more platelets, growth factors, and active proteins for tissue and injury healing. It has been used medically for years to expedite wound healing; repair tendons and ligament and joint damage; heal diabetic ulcers; and help regrow muscle and bone. When PRP is placed back into the skin by injection or micro-needling, it initiates a central cell response. Over the weeks and months following treatment, this cell response recruits collagen-producing cells. These new cells replace tissue that has been damaged or lost through the aging process with healthy skin that looks refreshed and rejuvenated.
What are the benefits of PRP Treatment?
The potential benefits of PRP have led to a widespread interest in its use for anti-aging and regenerative purposes. The healing properties of the blood components in PRP can be used as an effective cosmetic treatment for the following:
Reducing fine lines and wrinkles, tightening and toning skin, moderate to mild collagen and volume loss, crow’s feet, dark under eye circles, acne scarring and Rosacea.
PRP or Platelet Rich Plasma is an excellent alternative treatment to aging facial issues such as loss of volume, sagging jowls and hollowness under and around the eyes. PRP can also be used to treat the neck and decolette to restore firmness as well as sagging and crepey skin around the knees.
PRP is made from your own blood and is a simple, non-surgical treatment used to stimulate collagen. It can be used as an injectable for the face and other areas but also topically in conjunction with a Dermapen for quicker and very visible results.
Scars and strech marks aslo respond very well to PRP treatment where other methods have failed.
