PRP Skin Rejuvenation

PRP or Platelet Rich Plasma treatment is the buzz word in the anti-aging world. These treatments which use the patient's own platelets derived from the blood, enhance the ability of the skin to rejuvenate itself, making it a very natural treatment. PRP was first discovered by orthopedicians and used extensively in healing bone injuries. It gained popularity in the cosmetic industry as dermatologists started to use it to heal ulcers and scars. Now, it is used extensively in anti-aging procedures and is popularised by Hollywood celebrities as the Vampire Facial. Let us learn more about this versatile anti-aging treatment.
 

How is PRP useful?

The platelets are a type of cell in our blood which contains plenty of growth factors. The work of the platelet is to initiate healing after an injury by releasing these various growth factors. When blood is centrifuged, it separates into the cell component and the plasma. The platelets being smaller in size are found suspended in the plasma and are called Platelet Rich Plasma. This component is then injected into the skin to cause healing.

Since PRP is derived from one’s own blood, and no additives are added during its preparation, it is a very safe treatment. Studies have shown that PRP shows significant improvement in hair loss (both in men and women), non-healing ulcers, skin pigmentation, dark circles, acne scars, and non-surgical facelifts.
