Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy (PRP)
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy is a regenerative medicine technique that uses a patient’s own blood to promote healing and tissue regeneration. PRP therapy involves drawing a small amount of blood from the patient, which is then spun in a centrifuge to extract the platelet-rich plasma.
Platelets are a type of blood cell that contains growth factors and other bioactive molecules that play a key role in the body’s natural healing processes. The concentrated platelet-rich plasma is then injected into the area of the body that needs treatment, such as a joint or into the skin to stimulate the body’s natural healing processes and accelerate tissue regeneration.
Micro-needling with PRP is the perfect treatment for melasma, hyperpigmentation, fine lines, acne scars and overall skin rejuvenation. This treatment is also safe on all skin types.
Your PRP is micro-needled into the skin, applied as a mask and also injected into the skin which helps stimulate collagen.
The platelets and growth factors in PRP can also stimulate hair follicle growth and promote new hair growth.
It is recommended to do series of 3-4 treatments, atleast 4 weeks apart.
PRP (platelet-rich plasma) injections in the scalp are a treatment option for various hair loss conditions, including androgenetic alopecia (male/female pattern baldness), alopecia areata, and telogen effluvium.
In hair loss treatment, PRP is injected directly into the scalp to stimulate hair growth and increase hair thickness.
Platelet rich plasma or Platelet rich fibrin also helps to improve dark pigmentation and hollowness under the eyes. Its an ideal procedure for someone who is looking for an alternative to dermal fillers in that delicate area of eyes. It can also improve the fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes.
As with any medical procedure, PRP injections in the skin or scalp carry potential side effects such as pain or discomfort at the injection site, infection, and bleeding. It is essential to discuss the potential benefits and risks of PRP injections with a qualified healthcare professional before undergoing the procedure.
