New Delhi :
As you age the skin colour becomes more gray & texture becomes less smooth, because of less blood flow. Facial Shape collapses and becomes droopy because muscle and collagen decrease. As a result, you look "worn", or "tired" or "droopy & skin's colour fades to a dull gray.
Move over bird poop, bee venom, sheep placenta and other such face-saving measures; even Botox can't offer what these PRP facelifts or so called vampire treatments can. This treatment uses the platelet element of your blood to rejuvenate your skin.
The multipotent stem cells then develop into new collagen, new blood vessels, and new fatty tissue trying to "repair" the skin that was never injured & result in younger looking skin.
Many patients are opting from PRP instead of Botox as the effects last longer and the treatment is natural as it uses their own blood.
It is a simple treatment and is done by obtaining a small volume of blood from the patient’s own body. This blood is centrifuged to separate the red blood cells from the platelet cells. This platelet rich plasma or PRP is then injected back under the skin.
Before starting with the process, the skin is anesthetized with an anesthetic ointment. The preliminary treatment for PRP face treatment is recommended as one treatment a month for 3 to 4 months, and then the procedures can be continued for either 6-monthly or 12-monthly, depending on your skin and the anticipated results you wish to get.
Platelet Rich Plasma is liable for imparting a revivifying and tightening influence to your skin. Platelets also have growth elements on the surface that inspire collagen manufacture when vaccinated into the skin through PRP injections. This improves the skin’s quality.
There can be some bruising & swelling for first 3-4 days, but it tends to settle down quickly. The PRP Facelift procedure is not for everyone.
Many would do better with surgery, or laser therapy, or Botox, or an HA filler.
The PRP does not involve any surgery and minimises the risks of rejection or allergic reactions because the PRP is being prepared naturally using the patients own blood.
The safety and effectiveness of Platelet Rich Plasma-based treatments has been confirmed by research in stem cells. The procedure carries no downtime period as it is minimally invasive. However, strict adherence to post-care guidelines is essential for the success of the treatment.
PRP is the ideal cosmetic solution for reduction of wrinkles and fine lines, fading of dark circles from under the eyes and growth of new collagen under the skin thereby, improving skin clarity and tone and giving a patient a smoother and much younger skin.
