Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy (or PRP treatment) is a favorite beauty procedure because of its simplicity and effectiveness. It is easy because it involves blood being drawn from a patient’s own body. The patient’s blood is then put into a centrifuge to separate the platelets, serum and blood cells. And then you have everything you need to trigger your body’s natural healing mechanism at will.
Let’s see how PRP can be used for enhancing your skin and appearance.
Almost all of us are affected by acne at some point in our life. However, acne is common for those in their teens. Acne is the result of clogged pores. Pores are the natural breathing mechanism of the skin. Pores also secretes sebum that washes away dead skin cells. When your pores are blocked, it causes inflammation. And the result is tiny bumps on the skin known as acne or pimples.
When these bumps “burst” they can leave a semi-permanent scar on your skin.
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. The production of new skin also means production of new collagen. This greatly improves the skin appearance in and surrounding areas making it appear your skin more vibrant and soft.
With PRP you’ll see results with just 2-3 treatments. This is about in a month’s time.
The effects varies depending on the individual. However, most people can expect the results to last about 18 months.
