PRP comes from your own extraction of blood. Using a centrifuge machine, the whole blood is spun separating its components. When the "Platelet Rich Plasma" component of the blood is injected into the skin it initiates a local stem cell response.
In the weeks and months following treatment these stem cells help to form new collagen, repair and regenerate damaged skin, and help slow and reverse the signs of aging, creating healthy skin that looks refreshed, firm and rejuvenated.
PRP works by recreating and stimulating the body's natural healing process. When tissue is injured, the body responds by sending specific ‘super healer’ cell types to the site of injury to start the repairing process and the regeneration of new tissue. These ‘super healer’ cells are platelets. Platelets perform many functions in our bodies, including formation of a blood clot and release of growth factors (GF) into injured tissue to start the healing process. Ageing skin requires a helping hand to initiate the healing and repair process, and this is where PRP therapy excels. PRP provides all of the essential Growth Factors (GFs) that stimulate healing and improves the body’s own ability to rejuvenate in a safe and effective way. PRP can be used anywhere!!
Cosmetic Nurse Elly’s focused treatment areas are the Neck and Décolletage, under eye areas and any other fine lines and wrinkles on the neck and décolletage. PRP can work in collaboration with Antiwrinkle Injectables & Dermal Fillers or as a solo treatment.
Published research and previous results have shown that the best results are achieved by a series of 3 treatments at 4 week intervals, and then yearly thereafter. Depending on the patient's age, some patients choose to return every six months rather than yearly.
