Many of our patients seek out rejuvenation treatments that are minimally invasive yet effective. They’re looking for a non-surgical procedure that avoids going under the knife with fast results and little to no downtime. For these clients, we confidently suggest PRP Therapy. We’ve been offering PRP treatments at our Medispa for years because of the rate of satisfaction and benefits for our patients. It has overwhelmingly proven this to be the best option for many who seek hair and face restoration.
So, What is PRP Therapy?
PRP Therapy stands for Platelet Rich Plasma. It’s a state-of-the-art technology that uses a patient’s blood, drawn from their bodies, to create a bountiful serum that can be injected into the body to promote growth. Plasma is isolated from red and white blood cells, using a centrifuge, to function as a stimulating agent fully. Plasma is a naturally occurring component in our bodies. Thus, it can be reintegrated to promote healing and growth in targeted areas without issue.
What does that healing and growth entail? With multiple superficial micro-droplet injections to the head or face, patients can see the regrowth of hair and a slowing or even a reversal of ageing. At the hair follicle level, texture, pigment, thickness and density can be restored. In the early stages of androgenetic alopecia (hereditary hair loss), it is possible to reverse the balding process. A PRP treatment can also be used in combination with hair grafts, to improve the survival rate of new grafts. In regards to facial skin, everything from scars, acne, hyperpigmentation, lines, wrinkles and uneven or dull skin can be treated.
How does this process naturally work? Plasma is a component of our blood that is responsible for healing. It stimulates collagen-producing cells and new blood vessel formation. Both of these components are responsible for refreshing and rejuvenating our bodies at the cellular level, enhancing the youth and quality of skin and hair. By selecting the area of choice on your face, it smooths fine lines, can reduce puffiness and darkness under the eyes or provide patients with an all-around tighter skin and better tone.
What is the Procedure Like?
A hair restoration procedure begins with a specialized 30 minute biostimulation session. The patient puts on a helmit that emits low-level lasers designed to stimulate the scalp. Next, the patient can have administered a local anaesthetic or numbing cream, however patients should expect minimal to no pain. The rest of the procedure takes around 45 minutes to 1 hour. Clients have reported mild tingling or pinching sensations during the process.
Following the procedure, patients should expect little to no pain felt and absolutely no downtime is needed. Slight redness, gentle bruising or tenderness could be experienced. This treatment can be combined with prescription hair restorations. Patients can see the best results after about 6 months, but benefits can be observed sooner.
A facial rejuvenation procedure will require 3-4 sessions at 4-6 week intervals to optimize the treatment potential. Patients can expect seeing results in 1-3 months, but the benefits continue to show effects long after. Enjoying 18-24 months of better skin is common, after which maintenance sessions are recommended to keep looking radiant and fresh. PRP therapy can be combined with laser or filler procedures for greater effectiveness if needed. A recommendation from one of our professional technicians can help you decide what your best options are following a consultation.
