PRP Therapy or Platelet-Rich Plasma therapy is a treatment used to rejuvenate skin affected by wrinkles, birthmarks, aging, and scars. It’s also used to treat injured joints because it speeds up the healing process.
PRP consists of a high concentration of platelets obtained from the patient’s blood. This means that the process utilizes your healing system to trigger a self-healing process on any target area.
Platelet-Rich Plasma features one of the best skin care regimens in the industry. This is why, at Lumiskins, we utilize the ability of the protein factors in PRP to treat hair loss and various skin conditions.
PRP and Hair Loss
PRP can be injected on the scalp to improve the thickness of existing hair or to facilitate the growth of newly transplanted hair roots. Since PRP contains vital protein/growth factors and nutrients in high concentrations, the scalp uses them to support the growth of the transplanted hairs and to prevent further hair loss.
PRP can also be used to combat androgenic alopecia (male-pattern baldness).
PRP for Wrinkle Removal
Wrinkles appear as we age or prematurely due to certain factors, including exposure to sunlight and smoking, among other factors. PRP therapy can be used to restore your skins tone and smooth feel when dealing with fine lines and wrinkles. PRP triggers the skin to produce collagen, which makes the skin stronger, eliminating fine lines and wrinkles for a youthful and plump look.
PRP and Scar Removal
If you have acne scarring or any other scars, PRP injections can be used to help remove them. PRP contains unique protein factors that trigger the formation of new healthy cells. When injected on scarred areas, new, healthy cells are produced, and with time, they cause the scars to fade away. This makes it important in restoring esthetic looks after suffering from acne or after being injured.
PRP and Dark Circle Removal
Dark circles under eyes are formed due to the loss of skin regenerative capabilities, and skin thinning due to weak connective tissues. PRP injections contain high amounts of growth factors capable of revitalizing the affected areas. Once injected, collagen is formed to strengthen the skin under the eyes, and new healthy cells are formed. This restores a smooth, appealing, and healthy skin below the eyes.
Steps Followed In PRP Therapy
When our cosmetologist determines that PRP therapy is a suitable treatment for you, certain measures should be taken to ensure a successful procedure. Certain medications such as aspirin, ibuprofen, and blood thinners should be avoided to prevent excessive bleeding during the procedure.
If you’re having PRP treatment on your scalp or face, its recommended that you carry a hat to protect the treated area after undergoing the procedure.
During PRP Procedure
During your treatment session, the specialist draws a small amount of blood from the patient’s arm and centrifuges it. This allows the separation and removal of the rest of the blood’s components, leaving you with a platelet-rich plasma solution.
The target area is then injected with a numbing agent, such as lidocaine, to ensure that the process is comfortable and pain-free. After the application of anesthesia, the PRP is injected into the target area in multiple places.
The process takes about 30 minutes to 1 hour, and it has minimal to no downtime.
