Advancement in technology has contributed extensively to the field of cosmetics. Various cosmetic techniques have made it easy to treat problems of hair and skin in both men and women. The modern techniques have enabled us to solve the issues related to beauty with fewer side-effects. The latest of the technology for skin rejuvenation is PRP treatment (Platelet- Rich Plasma). PRP or Platelet- Rich Plasma is a treatment which uses blood cells of our own body to eliminate aging signs and to retain the youthful skin. It combines the plasma and platelets from our blood along with other skin rejuvenation techniques.
What are the processes of PRP treatment?
In this process, a doctor derives blood from the patient's body. The collected blood sample is processed into a centrifuge to extract protein-rich plasma. The extracted protein is concentrated and form Platelet- Rich Plasma. PRP is used to trigger collagen production in the skin. During the treatment, platelet-rich plasma is applied on the face and micro-needling is done to create tiny pores using sterile needles. This helps the skin to absorb the PRP effectively.
Who is an ideal candidate for the procedure?
One is considered a right candidate if the person possesses good health condition and is looking to treat minor signs of aging. People in these conditions are not allowed to go for PRP treatment:
Having certain skin conditions like rosacea and facial eczema
People with the history of poor wound healing
Have undergone skin radiation in the last 12 months
What to expect after PRP treatment?
A few weeks after the procedure, a patient can see the changes in colour, skin quality and texture of the skin. PRP treatment provides a glowing, fresh, smooth and youthful appearance to the skin. The treatment lasts for about six to nine months and it is recommended to repeat once in a year.
What is the downtime?
It takes a short period to heal. One can get into the normal activities within a day of the treatment. To achieve optimal results and to minimize the side-effects follow the instructions provided by the dermatologist.
What are the side-effects of PRP treatment?
The side-effects of the treatment are for short-period. Here are some of the common side-effects:
Swelling and Edema
