PRP treatments can improve hair regeneration and the outcome of other cosmetic procedures. The platelets— a type of blood cells, contain growth agents that can trigger cell multiplication, speed healing, and promote tissue regeneration.
Since the PRP treatment uses the plasma taken from the patient’s own blood, their injections are safe and can either be given alone or used in combination with other cosmetic procedures. Amongst all, PRP facial and PRP hair treatment have both shown some remarkable and unprecedented results. Let’s have a look at these in detail.
This plasma therapy, also famously known as Vampire facial or facelift, can be very efficient in removing wrinkles, blemishes, freckles, and other types of skin damages Here’s how it works:
PRP Facial uses platelet-rich plasma injections to leap-start natural skin rejuvenation process. A small portion of the patient’s blood is retrieved— roughly of the same amount as extracted for a routine blood test. It is then placed in a special machine that spins quickly, separating the platelets and the plasma (the liquid part of your blood). In a session that normally lasts less than 30 minutes, the highly concentrated platelets are then injected directly into the treatment zones.
The vampire facial brings results as it acts to restore and rebuild the skin using the body’s natural healing cycle. That means it may take from a couple of weeks to a few months before you actually start witnessing a discernible outcomes.
Benefits of PRP Facial
Natural skin regeneration:
The vampire facelift works to renew and restore the skin in primarily two ways:
- First, different growth factors in the PRP promote healing responses in your skin. They foster the development of new, healthy cells that replace existing, weakened cells so that the skin looks and feels healthier and fine lines and scars are minimized.
- Second, the injections themselves produce diminutive “managed injuries” areas that also facilitate healing in the regions of the shot.
Since PRP treatment is minimally invasive (meaning it uses just fluids and no sutures or surgery), you don’t have to think about anesthesia and the complications it may bring, and you don’t have to think about a lengthy recovery time either.
PRP Hair Therapy
Hair loss is a hereditary condition affecting both males and females, which may leave you feeling insecure and humiliated. Instead of stressing about your hair, or attempting a treatment that may lead to adverse side effects, PRP hair treatment is a safe bet that can help you recover both your hair and lost confidence.
The process of separating plasma and platelet remains the same as explained above. Post-separation, the doctor implants the plasma using a fine needle into the areas of the scalp having bald patches or experiencing hair loss.
The number of PRP hair treatments you might need depends on the gravity of hair loss, but for the best results, your physician may prescribe multiple treatments set at a month apart. Sometimes, you may require maintenance treatments, 2-4 times a year.
