You can use this treatment around the nose, eyes and mouth, or on the back of your hands and your décolletage. It is a cheaper alternative to surgery at an affordable price. The procedure is quick and painless.
The procedure is known as Platelet Rich Plasma Treatment and it is done by taking some of your blood and then placing it in a centrifugal machine, which separates your blood and platelet plasma.
The platelets are nature’s clotting agents and the plasma creates new tissue with collagen, which then plumps up the skin and gives it that fresh look. Once the plasma has been separated, it is then injected using a dermal roller or pen into various points on your face.
First of all your blood will be taken, about the same amount as a blood test.
This is put into the centrifugal machine. Meanwhile, your skin will be cleansed and a topical anaesthetic applied in order that the procedure is painless.
After around 30 minutes, the plasma will be injected into your face which is done with a fine needle or dermal roller at various different places. The whole procedure will take around one hour to complete.
Bruising or swelling should be minimal and any such symptoms should only last a few days. The procedure is usually painless. Please ensure you don’t put anything on your face, like creams or make-up for 24 hours after the procedure in order to avoid infection.
It may take a few weeks to see the benefits of this procedures as the plasma takes a while to work and for the collagen to grow.
