PRP For Skin Texture & Glow
Over time skin endures repeated damage through facial expression or volume loss, creating wrinkles and lines and as well as a thinner, duller texture. The severity of these changes in an individual depends on genetic tendency, skin type and exposure to environmental factors.
Growing in popularity, Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is changing the future of aesthetic medicine by helping soften lines and wrinkles and improve skin texture, thickness and glow. It harnesses the body’s own resources and natural healing mechanisms to achieve a regenerative and rejuvenating response in the skin. With a long history of use in sports medicine for its accelerated wound-healing properties, PRP is now taking over the cosmetic arena.

Is PRP (platelet-rich plasma) safe?
How long has PRP been around for?
The concept of PRP began in the 1970s in the field of hematology, which is the study of blood. Then, in the 1980s and 1990s, PRP began to be used during surgical procedures because it has many properties that help with wound closure, reducing inflammation, and increasing new cell growth. The most common procedures in which it was used were periodontal surgery, maxillofacial surgery, cosmetic surgery, and skin grafting.
Platelet-rich plasma has been found to significantly enhance the healing process, and has since been used to support wound healing in trauma and joint injury.
The technique can help rejuvenate skin, address hair loss, stimulate the growth of hair transplants and enhance other cosmetic procedures.
When will results of a PRP treatment show?
PRP stimulates collagen production in the skin and fuels the treatment area with stem cells and growth factors. This helps enhance the skin tone, strengthen dermal integrity and boost skin health on the face and body. Results of PRP can start becoming visible at 3 weeks and increase gradually over ensuing months – the results are cumulative and get better and better!
