What is Platelet Rich Plasma therapy?
Platelet rich plasma or PRP is blood plasma that has been enriched with platelets. As a concentrated source of autologous platelets, PRP contains several different growth factors and other cytokines that stimulate healing of soft tissue. PRP Therapy uses platelet rich plasma to boost the skins natural collagen production and provide instant lift to the treated area.
PRP Therapy is nicknamed “The Vampire Facelift or Dracula Therapy” because it uses platelet rich plasma drawn from your own blood. PRP contains growth factors, and when concentrated, stimulate the collagen in your skin, revitalizing your skin’s texture, laxity, volume and tone. Hyaluronic acid (HA) is also a natural compound found in abundance in youthful skin which is sometimes combined with plasma during treatment. HA filler is a smooth gel that will soften wrinkles and is applied at the time of treatment to give instant lift but also to supply the skin with HA which is the second key ingredient that works alongside human growth factors in the plasma to improve the look of your skin!
How does it work?
Platelet Rich Plasma has been used for several years in medicine to stimulate healing in the post operative environment where speed of recovery is desireable. Scientists have known for decades that unipotent stem cells lie dormant in the skin and provide the building blocks for healing when you sustain a burn or cut.
By utilizing the growth factors found in the blood (Platelet-Rich Plasma), a doctor can activate the unipotent stem cells already in the skin and tell those cells (in this case fibroblasts) to grow new collagen which gives rise to younger looking skin.
Platelet rich plasma is obtained from blood drawn from your arm which is treated to remove the red blood cells and concentrate the platelets. Only a tiny proportion of the drawn blood will contain enough material to be classed as platelet rich plasma.
This PRP is rich in the building blocks required to visibly improve the skin. Platelets activate stem cells which are turned into fibroblasts. Fibroblasts are the cells in your skin that produce collagen. It is these cells that deplete as we age. By stimulating the production of fibroblasts, skin rejuvenation can occur over the course of several weeks and months post treatment.
We do NOT use animal derived products for our Platelet rich plasma treatment in Winchester. Our PRP does not make use of Bovine Thrombin. Hyaluronic acid (if used) is from an FDA-approved dermal filler made of a biodegradable, non-animal stabilized hyaluronic acid (NASHA).
What can the treatment achieve?
Platelet rich plasma therapy in Winchester may help smooth moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds and stimulate collagen production for longer term wrinkle reduction. You can expect improved skin texture and tone. Platelets can either be injected in their liquid form as seen in Dr Sisters video or they can be “activated” using Calcium Chloride to form a gel rich in thrombin which can be used in place of conventional dermal fillers for instant improvement for deep folds.
