PRP Therapy for Aging Skin

Platelet-rich plasma, or often termed as PRP, is concentrated blood plasma (composition of blood) that contains approximately five times the number of platelets found in normal circulating blood. Apart from red blood cells and white blood cells, our blood also contains cells known as platelets. The function of platelets is to promote healing and aid in the clotting of blood at the site of a wound. Platelets contain growth factors that promote regeneration of the cells in the body. PRP has been used in medicine for the last two decades.

PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) also known as plasma rich in growth factors is the latest tendency in anti-aging. The treatment reverses al the common aging signs in the skin specifically in the areas of the face, neck, hands and other parts of the body. The advantages of PRP over other common anti-aging treatments like neuromodulators and dermal fillers is its unique natural quality. The therapy uses the patient’s own blood, making the treatment hypoallergenic. Upon activation, PRP is injected into wrinkles for immediate volume augmentation and long-lasting collagen regenerating effects. Additionally, it enhances the texture and vitality of your skin by creating new blood vessels.

Certain areas on our bodies will age much quicker than others. These areas are the most exposed to sun damage, free radicals, and other age factors. Thin areas under our eyes and the skin on our neck show dramatic improvement with PRP Therapy to reverse signs of aging. Lines on the upper lips, as seen on many smokers, can improve in depth and hydration.

PRP Therapy will improve general texture and tone to any area the platelet and growth factor rich blood is injected. For cosmetic application, it is usually recommended to have a minimum of three treatments, one month apart. It is always best to wait a minimum of three months after the third treatment session before making a judgment on the results. Some patients will achieve further changes for three to six months after their final treatment.

The benefits of platelets and the regeneration of tissue is widely known and accepted in medical literature, but its usage in recent medical conditions is currently being studied. The use of PRP to treat hair loss has the potential to change the way hair loss is treated around the world as it’s a revolutionary, new treatment for hair loss.

Platelets aid in clotting of blood which is the key to the body’s ability to heal wounds. The idea behind PRP therapy is that by increasing the platelet count in a wounded area, the body’s healing capacity in that area would be accelerated.

The injection of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a technique using the body’s own blood to heal itself. Doctors incorporate its use for the growth of thinning hair, transplanted hair, and wound healing. Many patients have benefited from this form of treatment.

Procedure

Blood is collected from your vein by your provider. It’s very similar to having a routine blood test performed at your doctor’s clinic. The blood is then placed in a machine called a centrifuge where it is spun for approximately 10 minutes. When the centrifuge has stopped spinning, the concentrated platelets have been separated from your normal whole blood. The PRP that contains abundant growth factors and stem cells is now ready to be injected into the scalp where hair loss has begun.
