You can learn more about PRP Therapy and the science behind it by visiting Eclipse International.
Platelet rich plasma (PRP) is a high concentration of platelets in a small volume of plasma. A small amount of blood is drawn and then the platelets/plasma are isolated (by centrifugation - spun at high speed in a machine) from the other components of the blood. The PRP is then injected or micro-needled into the skin.
Growth factors are released by platelets - these function to regulate healing. When your skin is stimulated with PRP, affected cells start to repair any damaged tissue and regenerate new, healthy tissue.
The goal of PRP therapy for skin rejuvenation is to improve collagen and elastin content, skin texture and elasticity.
PRP can be used to treat:
PRP is not indicated for deep wrinkles, skin laxity and significant volume loss. PRP is not recommended if you are breastfeeding, pregnant, have a blood condition especially involving platelets or fibrin, recent blood transfusion, if you have a history of keloid scarring, collagen vascular diseases such as scleroderma or if you have cancer. Avoid treatment in areas where there is skin cancer, precancerous skin lesions, skin infection/or chronic skin condition (eg. eczema, psoriasis) at the site of treatment. If you have hemophilia, infectious diseases or liver function issues, PRP may not be indicated. Bleeding disorders or blood thinners make you more prone to bruising. Smoking/second-hand smoke interferes with healing and may increase the risk of all side effects especially infection or produce poor quality PRP. Chronic medical conditions such as diabetes, lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, HIV or other immunosuppressive conditions or medications may increase your risk of infection and other side-effects. If you have any of the above issues there may be a decreased or lack of response to treatment.
Injection-related side effects can include:
