Many of us are looking for a refreshing, rejuvenation and youthful appearance without looking frozen or unnatural. Inside of us there is a natural Fountain of Youth, there is a power to heal and regenerate tissue - the magical power of stem cells!
They grow new collagen, blood vessels, repair and regenerate skin cells. As we age, stem cells slow down their activity and we need to stimulate them and revive them to produce new collagen, so our skin looks smoother, firmer, and brighter.
PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) is extracted from your blood and it contains an increased number of platelets and growth factors, which encourages increased activity of stem cells.
PRP induces the synthesis of new collagen by fibroblasts. Fibroblasts will replace the damaged skin tissue with a healthy skin cells.
After three to six weeks the new collagen and blood vessels start to grow, fine lines decrease, the skin tone and texture PRP injections (PRP mesotherapy injections) can be administered anywhere in a body, but it’s most popular application in cosmetic dermatology is face and neck skin rejuvenation.
It seems that even a single application is effective; however, repeated treatment of PRP may result in increased collagen synthesis. The most common side effects are mild swelling and minimal bruising that may last three to seven days. Because PRP is extracted from your own blood, there is no risk of disease transmission, allergic or immune reaction.
Micro needling can be performed with PRP. When the skin is penetrated with a sterile micro needling device, the complex cascade of wound healing and growth factor release will be initiated, which additionally results in collagen production. If facial volume depletion is significant, then PRP can be combined with hyaluronic acid or other fillers for quick volume correction.
