Platelet-rich plasma or PRP is one of the most advanced treatments that exist in rejuvenation. It is ideal for improving the appearance of the skin, increasing firmness and luminosity. Basically, the enriched plasma has a very intense rejuvenating and cellular stimulating effect.
It is a non-invasive procedure that consists of obtaining a blood sample from the patient, preparing the plasma fraction (platelets and growth factors) and reinjecting it in the form of superficial microinjections (mesotherapy) in the dermis of the face (perioral area), to improve the appearance of wrinkles, acne scars and to rejuvenate the skin around the lips.
The platelet-rich fibrin and leukocytes (plasma) contain abundant growth factors that help regenerate the skin. When used through mesotherapy, in the most flaccid areas of the face in the perioral area, it stimulates the production of collagen, elastin and epidermal tissue, which translates into younger, smoother and better quality skin.
This treatment is recommended from the age of 30, the age at which the skin begins to lose its power of regeneration and collagen formation, or simply when the signs of aging are visible. It can be applied both as a preventive treatment for young skin or as a restorative treatment for aged skin.
The Platelet Rich Plasma protocol is specific to each patient depending on the degree of aging and the characteristics of their skin. Usually, middle-aged patients do 3 sessions in a year separated by 30-45 days, and then they are repeated once a year, to continue stimulating the fibroblasts to produce new collagen.
The results can be seen after 15 days of application and they become more visible between 30 to 45 days, remaining stable for many months. The result of the last session with Platelet Rich Plasma lasts approximately 1 year, at which time a booster session is advisable.
It is painless. It only requires a small blood sample. It is extracted from the body itself, making it completely biocompatible and eliminating adverse effects, thus avoiding the risk of infection or disease transmission, allergic reactions and also, due to its composition rich in haemostatic factors, it prevents the formation of bruises. It is 100% natural and 100% organic.
You will be able to lead a normal life immediately after the session, but it is recommended to not exercise, go to swimming pools, beaches, or saunas, and to not wash your face for 24 hours.
