Autologous platelet rich plasma (PRP) injections were first used in 1987 in open heart surgery. Today, PRP injections have been safely used in many fields including sports medicine, orthopaedics, fasciomaxillary, urology as well as aesthetic medicine.
What is PRP?
Our own blood is made of plasma, red blood cells, white blood cells and platelets. Platelets are small discoid cells which contain granules. These granules contain clotting and growth factors. During the healing process, the platelets are activated, subsequently release these growth factors which stimulate inflammatory cascade and healing process.
Blood typically contains 6% platelets whereas PRP has a significantly increased supra-physiological platelet concentration. Studies have shown that clinical benefit can be obtained if the PRP used has an increased platelet concentration of 4x greater than normal blood.
What is the process of the treatment?
Prior to treatment a simple blood sample of 10 – 30 mls is extracted from the patient. This blood is immediately placed in the centrifuge for 5 – 8 minutes. When centrifugation is complete your plasma will be separated from your red blood cells. The rich platelets are extracted from the base of the plasma gel. The platelets are injected into the deep dermis or fat layer of the skin. Platelets gradually increase collagen which can increase skin thickness and overall health of the skin.
What are the indications of PRP in aesthetic medicine?
Improves skin texture
Reduces pore size
Smoothens wrinkles and fine lines
Increases skin radiance
Improves pigmentation and melasma
Promotes hair growth
How long will the whole process take?
The whole process should take 60 to 90 minutes. Proper centrifugation is needed to make sure the highest quality of PRP with the most platelet count is obtained for best results.
How long will the effects last?
Unlike other aesthetic treatments, results from PRP treatment can be lasting. This regenerative treatment help your cells to regrow and renew, thus a new life cycle for new cell is created. This delays the overall aging process. Your new skin cells provides you a younger and better skin and face which will last as long as you maintain it well.
How many sessions do I need?
Depends on your condition. Generally a treatment program of 3 – 4 sessions are recommended.
What should I expect after the treatment?
Due to the injection, certain areas of your skin might appear to be red and swollen. These common reactions of injection will fade away within hours. Rejuvenation will be observed. Gradual improvement noticed on skin texture, skin tone and wrinkles will be noticed after each sessions.
Am I suitable for this treatment?
Since blood is involved, anyone with any kind of possible blood-borne disease is not suitable for this treatment. Besides this risky group, generally everyone can be treated with PRP. Kindly consult your doctor to know your compatibility.
Facial rejuvenation combining mesotherapy and Platelet Rich plasma is a natural treatment that is being used to restore dermal regeneration. Platelet Rich Plasma is the plasma taken from one’s own blood. These platelets release growth factors and have proven highly effective in skin rejuvenation. This is a unique form of cell therapy that has a high safety profile.
A mesotherapy needle is used to make a series of small serial punctures in the skin about a half an inch apart. With each puncture a small amount of the activated PRP is injected into the target tissue. An alternative method is to use a dermal roller to make small micro punctures in the epidermis. After the dermal roller is passed, the PRP is laid on top of the skin and allowed to dry.
Platelet Rich Plasma is the plasma taken from one’s own blood
Both of these techniques uses the patient’s own growth factors suspended in enriched PRP, and provides stimulation of fibroblasts (cells that maintain the structural integrity of connective tissues) in the skin which then facilitates the skin’s rejuvenation and healing process thru activation of cytokines (small cell-signaling protein molecules).
Only a small amount of blood is required and the entire process takes less than one hour. Results continue to improve over time. Once the platelets are viable, growth factors are released for the first seven days. Results include significant improvement in texture and tone with an increase in luminosity. Results have been qualified by advanced digital skin analysis.
PRP injections allow facial rejuvenation in a very cost effective and safe way. Treatments can be repeated every six months and benefits are cumulative over time.
PRP is an autologous plasma which contains high level of platelets and growth factors.
