As we age, our skin changes and thins, fine lines and wrinkles appear around the eyes, and the skin around the neck, cheek, arms, back of hands, mid face and jawline appears ‘crepey’. The neck and décolletage also suffer from age and exposure to the elements. Platelet rich plasma injections PRP can be used to treat these conditions, and rejuvenate dull, tired skin, improving texture and skin quality.
Platelet rich plasma injections therapy is a treatment which uses your own blood platelets to stimulate new cell growth, helping to improve your complexion, skin texture and to restore lost facial volume.
During platelet rich plasma injections your blood is taken and the plasma and platelets are separated from the red and white blood cells. The plasma and platelets are then re-injected into the skin to stimulate collagen and new skin cells.
Because platelet rich plasma injections use the patient’s own platelets there is no risk of allergy or rejection of the treatment, although most people experience some mild swelling, bruising or heat in the area of the treatment.
After one to three treatments (at four week intervals) skin elasticity is almost immediately improved, although it can take up to three months for collagen production to occur, and the final results to be seen. After PRP fine lines and wrinkles will diminish, and the skin will appear firmer with improved elasticity.
