Platelet rich plasma rejuvenation has hogged headlines recently as various celebrities have endorsed this treatment before their red carpet appearances across various countries. Today, it remains one of the most sought after treatment because of the safety of the treatment as well as the exclusive glow that it confers. Let us decode this treatment to understand its benefits.
PRP when placed in the skin causes a significant plumping of the skin, giving the skin a youthful glow. It even fills out lines and wrinkles around the eyes and mouth, erases the neck lines, can be used over the back of your hands as well. The simple and safe treatment not only gives you the glow you always wanted, it also regenerates your collagen as well. That means that when you are busy collecting compliments, PRP is busy at work making new collagen that leaves your skin looking firmer and younger.
PRP is a concentrate of platelets which is extracted from your own blood. A small sample of your blood (as for a blood test) is withdrawn into a testtube, and the platelets are separated. These are then activated and reintroduced to the skin with the help of microneedles.
The procedure itself takes about an hour for the preparation of the PRP and its administration.
PRP has been shown to benefit resistant pigmentation especially under the eyes. However, your dermatologist is the better judge to suggest which treatment would benefit your most.
The Vampire Face lift is a treatment which combines the use of PRP with the use of Fillers. The Fillers are placed to volumise the face, and the PRP rejuvenates the skin.
The number of treaments are usually dependent on the skin condition which needs attention. As a regular rejuvenation procedure, PRP can be done once in every three months. Consult Dr. Rasya Dixit, so you can get a personalised schedule for your skin.
