Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is known as a “natural filler” treatment that gives a more youthful appearance to the skin with minimal downtime. There are virtually no risks of allergies or sensitivity as PRP is derived from your own blood. PRP is actually blood plasma containing high concentrations of platelets that stimulate stem cells to help the body regenerate and heal at a faster rate. PRP improves overall skin texture, decreases the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles around the mouth and eyes, and plumps hollowing areas such as tear trough grooves, cheeks, and temples. PRP can also help smooth both acne and surgical scars.
PRP facial rejuvenation naturally stimulates your body’s own collagen production, and it takes about three months for maximum collagen regeneration to occur. Most patients notice an improvement in their skin texture in the first month after the treatment. It is recommended to have 2-3 treatments spaced at 6- 8 week intervals. The results of PRP rejuvenation are long term with most patients receiving touch-up treatments at one year to further stimulate collagen production and continued facial rejuvenation. For more improvement, we can combine the PRP facial rejuvenation treatment with medical-grade hyaluronic acid.
PRP uses your own platelets without the addition of any foreign products. The treatment works by drawing a small sample of your blood, which is then spun in a centrifuge. The centrifuge separates the red blood cells from the platelets that are rich in growth factors. The platelet-rich plasma is then carefully reintroduced into the skin with tiny injections back into the treatment area to stimulate collagen and elastin production. This is typically performed under the eyes and cheeks.
At ABC Aesthetics we offer different techniques to deliver PRP into the skin. It is recommended to consult with your dermal aesthetician to have the best outcome from the treatment.
Explanation of our PRP Skin treatments:
PRP Dermapen - the combination of Dermapen 4 (microneedling) with platelet-rich plasma, recommended for any type of scarring, or rosacea (inflammation-related skin conditions), and as a general anti-ageing treatment. The last step of the treatment is LED light therapy to calm the skin, activate skin cells, and kick in the healing response.
ABC Signature PRP - during this treatment we combine two different delivery techniques of PRP into the skin. The first step is PRP injections (by hand or using an automated injector-gun) into deeper skin layers in big amounts, and then microneedling the rest of the PRP to further stimulate the skin rejuvenation. This treatment is more intensive than PRP Dermapen and is recommended for patients with sun-damaged, wrinkled, dull, and saggy skin. This procedure includes LED light therapy.
PRP RF Microneedling - the combination of Radio-frequency microneedling with injected PRP into the area is an excellent procedure for skin tightening, and reduction of deep wrinkles, stretch marks, and scars. This procedure finishes off with LED light therapy.
PRP can be combined with most of our skin treatments. During the consultation, we can tailor the procedure specifically to your skin condition and needs.
