PRP and PPP replacement, also called the Vampire Facial is plasma rich protein and plasma poor protein treatments for aging skin, wrinkles, collagen production, hair growth, stretch marks and wound healing.
Platelet Rich Plasma or PRP is considered as probably the most promising skin rejuvenation treatments of the future. What sets this therapy apart from the existing rejuvenation treatments is the fact that this treatment uses the body’s inherent healing mechanism for revitalising and boosting the collagen and elastin production in the skin and other tissues. PRP therapy which is now commonly used in sports injuries and chronic non healing wounds is paving the way for no incision, all natural face, hand and décolleté rejuvenation.
How It Can Help Your Skin
PRP skin rejuvenation helps tighten open pores, eradicate fine lines, diminish sagging and restores youthful contours. Just a single treatment can take several years off the face, hands and virtually any other area that you wish to restore. The effect is completely natural and is permanent.
The Biology Behind It
The principle behind this treatment is that the platelets present in our blood are capable of releasing numerous growth factors which are responsible for healing and tissue regeneration. So if these platelets are concentrated and injected into aging skin they result in new collagen formation and therefore plumping and tightening of skin.
The treatment begins with collection of venous blood (much like when you go to have a blood test). The amount of blood collected will depend on the extent of area to be covered. An anesthetic cream may then be applied to the areas to be treated. The blood sample is then processed. The PRP is extracted, activated and injected painlessly into the concerned areas with a very fine needle within the next 10 minutes.
The long term effect is taught, plump, youthful skin and restored contours. The collagen that is regenerated is permanent but because aging is a dynamic and continuous process, the sessions may require yearly repetition.
Thus, Platelet Rich plasma or PRP treatment is a completely safe and natural treatment for skin and hair rejuvenation.
