Before injecting PRP to treat hair loss, a tiny scalp roller with spikes is used to stimulate the thinning areas. The rationale is that this sends a message to the hair follicles to start the healing process. Then, PRP is injected over the affected area to further stimulate stem cells in the follicle.
When PRP is injected into the damaged area, it stimulates the tissue, causing mild inflammation that triggers the healing cascade. As a result, new collagen begins to develop. As this collagen matures, it begins to shrink and tightens and strengthens the skin. Improvement in skin texture and tone is noticeable within 3 weeks. Full collagen regeneration usually requires 3 months. The PRP treatments can be used on all skin types and tones. Minimal swelling, bruising, and redness for the initial 12 to 24 hours are expected.
Wrinkles & deep lines:
PRP with fat transfer is the surgical combination of injecting a patient’s own plasma containing growth factors along with their own purified fat to augment areas of lost volume and wrinkles on the face.
PRP contains beneficial growth factors, and it could be used with fat transfer or subcision to re-plump areas of lost volume or depressed scarring from acne or trauma. Subcision surgically releases the pulled down portion of the scar from within, inducing the body’s healing response to create blemish free skin cells.Combined with fat transfer, PRP softens the appearance of depressed, roling scars.
The latest facial rejuvenation procedure is the face lift which combines the power of new PRP technology and facial fillers to minimize the signs of facial aging. This non-surgical procedure promotes new tissue growth to improve overall facial skin tone for a more youthful appearance. The PRP is combined with a facial filler and then re-injected into areas of concern around the face. Patients benefit from this procedure as there is minimal downtime and results can last for over a year. The true “lift” effect is achievable with a combination of fillers, layered with the PRP serum. The fillers provide an instant fill or volume correction and the PRP – injected above the filler – immediately kick-starts a skin regeneration process. Patients can see and feel the effects within minutes as their skin becomes tauter and smoother.The use of PRP with fillers not only enhances the skin tone and texture, but prolongs the effective filler correction for 3 to 6 months longer than when fillers are used alone.
