Platelet-rich plasma, also known as PRP, is an aesthetic treatment that uses your own blood platelets to stimulate collagen production, cell renewal, and tissue regeneration, improving your skin’s overall health and appearance. PRP is rich in proteins, nutrients, and growth factors that our skin may be lacking as we age. It also contains all the valuable plasma components essential for tissue regeneration. By injecting plasma into the skin, we create a controlled wound healing response that forces the skin to regenerate.
With regards to rejuvenation and hair loss, this treatment stimulates the natural renewal of tissue, including collagen and elastin production. Patients report great results in over skin health, tightness of the skin, hydration and more. They also report great results with hair regrowth, strength and prevention.
Step 1: Patient’s own blood is drawn
Step 2: Platelets are separated from platelet-poor plasma (PPP) via centrifugation
Step 3: PRP is collected and prepared to be injected for your aesthetic treatment
What to expect from the treatment?
The blood draw for the PRP treatment takes only a few minutes, immediately followed by a 10-minute centrifugation. The treatment will take 40-60 minutes, but this may vary based on which procedure is being performed. The number of PRP treatments necessary depends on the patient and the condition. We will create a treatment plan based on the patient’s individual needs. There may be some temporary discomfort or possible redness and inflammation on the treated areas, but this resolves quickly. Typically, the downtime for these treatments is 24-48 hours, and some minor swelling or tender sensations can continue for a few days post-treatment.
Is it safe?
The platelet-rich plasma is activated to release at least eight essential growth factors and signalling proteins. Platelet-rich plasma is a technology that deploys aspects of blood-based biochemistry. Because all the constituents retrieved in PRP are exclusively from the patient (autologous in origin), there is virtually no risk of intolerance. Nevertheless, before any treatment at Dermamode, you will have a detailed consultation where you will go over all the details with one of our specialists.
What results can I expect?
Patients have reported firmer and more plump skin as well as significant improvements in skin tone, vibrance, and texture. These results will start to be apparent after 7-10 days, but the final results will start to show 4-6 weeks after your treatment. Results may vary depending on the individual.
