Platelet rich plasma rejuvenation is a simple procedure in which an incredible anti-aging effect is achieved. It involves the application of platelet-rich plasma, a substance produced by our own body, in the areas of treatment. Its main objective is to restore normal skin functions and promote cell regeneration. This procedure results in younger, lighter, fresher-looking skin, with a better texture due to the reduction of fine wrinkles.
One of the main advantages of this process is that because it is a subtance produced by the patient’s body, there are no chances of allergic reaction or rejection.
The process to obtain platelet-rich plasma involves taking a patient's blood sample, which is centrifuged. Plasma is a liquid with a high concentration of platelets with huge reserves of bioactive proteins, growth factors and peripheral stem cells; these allow for the production of fibroblasts and type III collagen which are responsible for initiating and accelerating cell repair and regeneration.
Platelet-rich plasma is applied through micro injections on the areas of treatment. The process takes approximately 15 minutes and is done on an outpatient basis; there are no side-effects. The number of sessions needed to obtain the desired results depends on each patient.
The patient will see younger, brighter-looking skin, with improved texture after the first treatment. The final effects will be evident one month after the treatment, with fewer wrinkles and smoother, more even-looking skin. The permanent use of sunscreen is recommended.
How often should this procedure be perfomed?
