Injectable Skin Care
And now for a nuance that refines beauty even further... Platelet Rich Plasma = PRP
PRP is a filler that is injected directly into the skin to restore the suppleness, radiance, integrity and skin texture. It adds support and thickness to the skin. It improves the texture of your skin by nourishing it from within. PRP addresses the superficial wrinkles and crepey skin.
For years, PRP has been used extensively in sports medicine to facilitate repair to ligament and tissue injury. This therapy is now a state-of-the-art beauty treatment.
Esthetic Nurse Robyn Vandermoor, RPN, shares her response to PRP :
"I was ultimately impressed with PRP. My professional skepticism is a duty, as always, so when I see results, I'm confident about reporting them."
"I always felt there was something missing between where we inject dermal fillers and the skin, this is the missing link."
Is PRP Different to Dermal Fillers?
Yes, PRP is quite different than hyaluronic acid fillers such as Restylane and Juvederm. PRP does not replace hyaluronic acid fillers - it complements them. We use hyaluronic acid fillers to restore the loss of volume in the deeper areas and to improve the folds and deep creases. PRP is used to address the skin itself, the superficial crepey skin that is difficult to address with fillers. Don't forget PRP's main goal is to stimulate fibroblasts and develop long-term collagen formation in the dermis. Any plumping in the treated areas may slowly be absorbed into the dermis creating a platform for better skin and a more healthy appearance.
The internal essence of the blood inside you contains life-giving fundamental growth factors that are designed to restore and repair your skin. PRP is leading edge technology that utilizes a high concentration of your own biological cells and allows them to naturally promote skin health. PRP stimulates the rebuilding of the underlying structural integrity of your skin. With a simple and quick process, your own plasma which is taken from your blood is safely prepared on the clinic's premises and reintroduced to your skin within the same treatment session.
How does PRP work?
PRP is regenerative medicine and works best aesthetically when the plasma is introduced into the skin. Your own enhanced concentration of cells will then work with your body to naturally promote a process for new tissue and collagen growth.
When will I see the results?
After the treatment patients often notice fine lines and wrinkles have softened and the skin has a suppleness and radiance about it, looking plumper and smoother overall. However, according to studies, the main goal of PRP treatment is to stimulate fibroblasts and develop long-term collagen formation in the dermis. Any plumping in the treated areas may slowly be absorbed into the dermis creating a platform for better skin and a more healthy appearance.
Overall, results are gradual and will vary from person to person based on health, age, and genetic make-up. Most patients enjoy quantifiable improvements in the skin complexion, texture, and tone. Usually within three to four weeks subtle improvements can progressively continue and results improve over three to six months.
What areas can be treated?
Virtually any area of the body can be treated, such as : face, neck, hands, chest, and scars, etc. Although all areas on the face can be treated, the most common areas are around the eyes, around the mouth, lips, forehead, and smile lines.
How many treatments will I need?
The basic strategy for a PRP treatment program can range from one to three treatments spaced four to six weeks apart. We will discuss your primary beauty goals and I will help you determine the best program for your skin.
How long will the results last?
Results have typically been shown to last 12- 15 months and in some studies even longer.
Are there any side effects?
Because the plasma is taken directly from you, there is virtually no risk of an allergic reaction or intolerance. And because the treatment is of a liquid base, there is no risk of lumps or bumps after the treatment.
Younger clients, please note :
PRP will convince you this is a valuable part of your image maintenance. PRP is non-surgical and uses your body's own plasma; a substance that heals wounds is, essentially, recreating skin. What a lovely thought.
Mature clients, please note :
PRP is not a volume restorer; it is a refiner of texture. PRP uses the healing properties of plasma to accelerate skin's self-renewal. Typically filler is combined with the plasma treatment, we use filler first to restore loss of volume then we use PRP to address the skin texture.
Just remember "supple, glowing, radiant" ... and let the results speak from the mirror!
