PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma)

PRP or Platelet Rich Plasma is nothing but auto logous blood with concentrations of platelets above baseline levels and contain at least seven growth factors. Normal blood contains only 6% platelets. However, in PRP, there is a concentration of 94% platelets, which translates to a powerful growth factor cocktail with a variety of growth factors and cyto-kines. This stimulates cellular proliferation and tissue regeneration to dramatically accelerate healing.

And since the platelets come from the patients own blood, there is absolutely no possibility of infection or other side effects. The only precaution you need to take is to stop any anti-inflammatory medications while administering PRP.

Cosmetic Rejuvenation

PRP Cosmetic Rejuvenation works pretty much the same way. Once injected into your skin, the platelets will accelerate the normal healing process and produces new collagen (what tendons are made of) at the injected area.

Here ís the list of cosmetic procedures commonly performed with PRP:

Wrinkle improvement: fine wrinkles, eye wrinkles, wrinkles around the mouth, forehead wrinkles.

Skin pores and elasticity: reduction of skin pore size, improvement in skin elasticity and skin tone.

Skin pigmentation disorders: skin whitening against hyper-pigmentation such as freckles, skin blemish, etc.

Other applications: improvement in hair loss, chapped skin, burn wound, dark circle, etc.

7 Ways To Wake Up Beautiful With PRP

Why PRP?

Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy (or PRP treatment) is fast becoming a favorite beauty procedure because of it ís simplicity and effectiveness. It ís easy because it involves blood being drawn from a patients body, similar to a regular blood test. The blood is then put into a centrifuge for a couple minutes to separate the platelets, serum and blood cells. And there you have everything you need to trigger your body ís natural healing mechanism at will.

Let’s see how we can use PRP for enhancing your skin and appearance.

1. Treatment for HAIR LOSS

Everyone experiences hair loss and most of it goes unnoticed. But fortunately, for most people (especially when they are young) their hair regeneration is faster than their hair loss. However, hormonal changes and certain medical conditions can reverse this and cause significant unwanted hair loss.

Research also suggests hair and self-image are closely intertwined. We all know how a bad-hair day can ruin the mood of women. Just imagine what it feels like to wake up to thinning hair or even baldness.

As I said a moment ago, hair loss happens when your hair regeneration falls below your hair loss rate. The reason for less hair regeneration? Not enough growth factors and nutrients. That ís why PRP has been proven to be a major procedure for hair loss treatment.

How Can PRP Treatments Help?

The growth factors and blood cells contained in the Plasma Rich Platelets can be powerful catalysts that accelerate your scalp ís capacity to regenerate hair cells. The growth factors can activate the hair follicles (only those that are dying, the long-dead hair follicles can ít be revived) and make your scalp healthier and cleaner.

Depending on the severity of the hair loss, it can take about 6-8 sessions to get back your hair.

How long do the results last?

Hair growth in cycles. And the average follicle goes through 4 cycles (which can take up to 60 days to complete) in which the only one of them is active growth phase. If most of your hair is in an Active growth stage, you wíll see results quickly. Otherwise, you wíll just do treatments for about 2 months to catch the hairs in the Active growth phase.

When you undergo treatments for 6-8 weeks, it ís hard to miss the active-growth phase of the hair and so you wíll see improved hair condition immediately after the 6th week.

2. Treatment for AGE SPOTS

Okay. I am guilty of not using proper skin protection from the sun. Some of you can relate. Most of the times it ís because I knowingly let it slip. As a result, I have age spots on my face. And my hands. So what can I do?

The good news is Age spots are skin ís built-in protection mechanism against the sun. Age spots protect the weaker areas of the skin from direct exposure to the sun. So don’t hate them. They are trying to help. But sometimes Age spots can also result from hormonal changes.

How Can PRP Treatments Help?

When the transforming growth factor beta (TGF-B) enters the skin tissue, it immediately kick-starts a skin regeneration process where fresh skin cells are rapidly produced turning your skin back to it ís original condition (or sometimes even better condition.)

The rapidity of a result is one of the most significant attributes of PRP Treatments. Typically 2-3 treatments are needed to see really good results.

How long do the effects last?

Effects depend on exposure to the sun. Once the age spots are removed, it ís expected to remain that way till the skin is once again overexposed to the sun, which will bring back the Age spots. using an effective sunscreen and other sun protective measures increase the efficacy of the treatments .we also prescribe a good skincare regime as maintenance therapy.

3. Treatment for PORES

My pores are big and now they out of control!! Help! If you hear yourself saying this, you need PRP.

The #1 reason for pores is heat. Under hot conditions, more dirt is likely to accumulate on your skin which produces sebum. The more sebum it produces, the more clogged the pore become. And that causes swelling making the pores look visibly larger than usual.

People try to fix the pores with cheap medications and it ís more often than not makes the situation worse.

How Can PRP Treatments Help?

If your pores are really bad, a combination of PRP and Micro-needling is advised. Micro-needling makes tiny wounds in the skin which triggers the skin ís healing mechanism. This healing process is then accelerated with PRP-derived growth factors for skin enhancement.  special PRP derived growth factors for skin enhancement. For this treatment, you need not use your blood to supply PRP. Just days after this treatment, your skin will grow back healthier with a smooth, polished look.

You will see results from your first session itself.

Caution: The procedure may result in swelling and bruising. It may last for about 3-4 days and will subside to reveal good healthy skin.

How long do the effects last?

Results will last about 3 months and after that, touch up treatments might be necessary. When it comes to skin care, regular care is the key. It ís just not a one-time event. Just like brushing your teeth, it should be done you should take good care of your skin always.

4. Treatment for WRINKLES

Wrinkles. Wrinkles. Wrinkles. They are not too bad really, but it all depends on your age. If you are under 30 and have wrinkles or fine lines, that ís kinda bad. Your peak age, in terms of looks, is around 35-40, but for some who really look after themselves, it can even be 50. One of the secrets to the healthy-looking skin at age 50 is PRP.

How Can PRP Injections Help?

Platelet Rich Plasma treatments are done using blood being drawn from a patient, similar to a blood test. Therefore, the trigger mechanism that produces the Anti-aging effect (Platelets and serum) is 100% natural. Hence the results look perfectly natural too. Unlike Botox, with PRP, there ís no dangerous side-effects to be afraid of and it won’t look weird either. That makes it a perfect treatment for Anti-aging wrinkle elimination.

The way PRP reduces wrinkles is cool. The platelets and serum injected through a PRP procedure trigger a false healing signal to the skin indicating it ís time to repair and thus starts the collage production which ferociously produce new layers of skin tissue.

You will require 3-4 treatments to see great results.

How long do the results last?

Again, an Anti-aging process is not a one-time event. You may need to follow up treatments in the coming months. The more nutrients (in this case, growth factors and healing serum from your own blood) that you can supply your skin, the younger your skin will get. At the minimum, the results will last 1 year but it can also be shorter depending on your natural aging cycle.

5. Treatment for EYE BAGS

Who doesn’t have an eye-bag? They are just lying under the skin jumping to reveal themselves at the slightest provocation (or sleep deprivation).

Eye bags are generally formed from strain around the eyes ó mainly due to lack of sleep. The strain in your eyes takes away blood (and nutrients) supply from nearby, mainly under your eyes. And thus the skin loses it ís elasticity to form eye bags.

Fortunately, one of the most effective treatments for eye bags or puffiness is PRP Injections. Forget fillers and botox.

How Can PRP Treatments Help?

Platelets contain growth hormones. The way it causes growth is by actually increasing the cell metabolism. When applied to the area around your eyes, the tissue under your eyes gets more than enough blood and nutrients for its active metabolism and growth. This helps it regain the lost elasticity. Plus the increase in metabolism actually burns more fat that ís accumulated under your eyes.

And it ís completely natural and doesn’t look artificial (depending on your definition of it) at all. Of course, you also have to stop putting excessive strain on your eyes. Sleep more, relax often and breathe easy. Granted, PRP (and most other skin enhancement for that matter) works only for premature eye bags. Meaning if you are above 80, it ís not only possible to get rid of the eye bags but it will look completely unnatural if you manage to do so.

How long do the results last?

If you are young (under 30) and have a controlled sleep pattern, you will see results starting from day 1 and it will last for years. Others might take a couple days to see change. But results are almost guaranteed with PRP if you continue with at least 3 weeks of treatment. You wíll sees a drastic reduction in your eye bags. Top-up treatments will be required after 6-12 months.

6. Treatment for DULL SKIN

Your skin looks bright and glowy when itís smooth enough to reflect light. The turnover for smooth skin is usually 28 days. Meaning, every 28 days new skin cells replace the old ones. But sometimes due to our sleeping habits and aging, this turnaround gets longer and longer. 40 to 50-day turnovers are no longer unusual in our society thanks to our stressful lifestyle.

This means more and more dead skin cells pile up and the remaining alive skin cells are barely making it. One effective way to shorten the turnover time for skin cells and eliminate dull skin is through PRP treatments. When combined with micro needling therapy, you wíll be able to quickly turn your skin from dull to bright and shiny in a matter of days.

How Can PRP Injections Help?

Both invasive and non-invasive PRP treatments can play the big role in reducing the turnover rate of your skin cells. Since PRP contain all the growth hormones that trigger Tissue regeneration, Collagen production, and Cell differentiation, it ís a perfect idol skin killer 2-3 treatments from a qualified PRP treatment provider can shorten your turnover rate to return back to 28 days, thus making your skin looking visibly younger and natural.

How long does the results last?

Generally, skin treatments last about 6-12 months. After which you might need touch-ups if necessary. And the best way to maintain your skin is to keep healthy habits like proper sleep, eat healthily and no smoking.

7. Removal for ACNE

We start with the most common one. Almost all of us are affected by Acne at some point in our life but it ís common for those in their teens. Acne is the result of clogged pores. Pores are the natural breathing mechanism of the skin. It also secretes sebum that washes away dead skin cells. When these are blocked, it causes inflammation on that part of the skin. And the result is tiny bumps on the skin known as Acne or pimples.

These bumps, when they go burst can leave a semi-permanent scar on your skin.

How Can PRP Therapy Help?

The platelets in the PRP injections contains growth factors, which are known to stimulate the skin cells and trigger the production of new skin tissue. Production of new skin also means the production of new collagen which greatly improves the skin appearance in that and surrounding areas making it appear more vibrant and soft.

With PRP being a fast-action procedure, you wíll see results with just 2-3 treatments  in a month ís time.

How long does the effects last?

This varies depending on individuals but most people can expect the results to last about 18 months.

In conclusion

Platelet Rich Plasma therapy is a must-have if you wish to stay young (who doesn’t) by harnessing the natural forces that are at play in your body. Already it ís taking the world of wound-healing by storm and I believe it ís a matter of time before PRP becomes the most requested beauty procedure.

The magic of PRP lies in the fact that it ís fast-acting and natural ó a combination you don’t get to see often.
