Platelet rich plasma therapy

about
enquiry
Platelet Rich Plasma also known as 'Facial Stem Cell Regeneration' or 'Autologous Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy’ or simply "Plasma Therapy' came to Australia in 2009.

Note: The treatment is not available at the moment

The science behind Platele Rich Plasma (PRP) is regeneration of hard and soft tissues.

The substance we're talking about here is simply a by-product of blood (or plasma) that is rich in platelets. Platelets perform many functions, including formation of a blood clot and release of numerous growth factors. Growth Factor function assists the body in repairing itself by stimulating stem cells to regenerate new tissue. The more growth factors released the more stem cells are stimulated to produce new tissue.

As we said before, apart from assisting in blood clotting, platelets also release growth factors that assist the human body to repair itself by stimulating cells to regenerate new tissue.

Today, platelet rich plasma can easily be separated from blood, through a process of centrifugation. Using your own enriched plasma permits the body to heal faster and more efficiently creating a network of collagen. Because your own plasma (autologous) is used, there is no danger of disease transmission, anaphylaxis or neoplasia.

  • Non-surgical with minimal side effects (bruising is really the only side effect)
  • Natural: uses your own platelet cells with a high concentration of growth factor

 

Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy Treatment Plan

Your practitioner will assess the degree of skin aging, perform skin analysis, and recommend a sensible treatment with a reasonable outcome.

Prior to the actual treatment a blood sample of 10 – 20 mls is extracted from your arm in special sterile tubes which are exactly the same as when you have a simple blood test. Your blood is immediately placed in the centrifuge for 5 – 8 minutes.

When ‘spun down’ in the centrifuge is complete your blood will be separated into three layers:

  1. plasma
  2. red blood cells
  3. platelets and white blood cells

The rich platelets are then extracted from the base of the plasma gel.

The plasma is drawn up into a syringe and is usually activated with calcium-chloride; this stimulates natural growth factor release from the platelets in the plasma. About 8ml of PRP is obtained which is plenty for facial rejuvenation.

The PRP is injected into the deep dermis or fat layer of the skin under topical local anaesthesia. The process is relatively painless providing sufficient topical anaesthesia is applied.

Platelets gradually increase collagen and overall
health of the skin
.

The newly produced collagen begins to plump the skin and reverse the visible signs of aging.

The skin will appear to be slightly sunburned for up to 48 hours with little or no associated discomfort. Within two to three weeks, most patients notice that their skin feels and appears firmer and has a healthy, vibrant glow. The improvements continues over the next 12 to 18 months, as new collagen production continues to improve the overall appearance of the dermis.

PRP FAQs

Who is a good candidate for PRP Facial Stem Cells Simulation?

The treatment is ideal for individuals looking for gradual but noticeable improvement in skin texture, tone and colour with minimal or no downtime.

NOTE: Advanced wrinkles and severe scarring cannot be reversed.

Persons with skin disease (SLE, porphyria, allergies), cancer, chemotherapy, severe metabolic and systemic disorders, and abnormal platelet function (i.e. blood disorders) underlying sepsis excludes the use of PRP.

PRP Therapy Aftercare

After your treatment, it is important to keep your skin thoroughly hydrated and to apply an 30 SPF (or greater) sunscreen multiple times a day during the summer months.

Results enhancement

Use of Cosmeceutical Products (Cosmedix  or Skeyndor) and IPL photo rejuvenation can enhance the results. Minimising intake of tobacco and alcohol will also be very beneficial  for better outcome.
