Get Back The Youthful You, Go For PRP For Face Treatment From The Experts
Aging is such an adverse effect that shows up on our face. We all love the tender, smooth looking skin to stay much longer with us but this won’t always be. However, the solution lies in the platelet-rich plasma in our blood using the PRP for face technique or PRP For Hair Treatment depending on which applies to you. Made famous as the vampire facial by a notable celebrity, Kim Kardashian, PRP for face has continued to gain popularity as a method to get back freshness and youthfulness. Referred to by some as an anti-aging technology, the procedure has been useful to reduce scars, wrinkles, dark spots in the skin and sun damage among other age-induced conditions.
How PRP Treatment Works
PRP for face is a treatment which takes advantage of the benefits of platelet-rich-plasma in the blood to grow new smooth and younger looking skin on the face. First, a blood sample is collected from your body, particularly the arm. Since one’s blood is used, the likelihood of an infection or an allergic reaction should not occur. Next up, the blood is centrifuged to separate the platelets from the blood. The doctor then applies local anesthesia to the area on the face to be treated. Lastly, the platelets are injected into your face using injection needles.
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) stimulates the growth of new skin in the patient’s body when injected into the body.
In most cases, PRP injections are combined with micro-needling. Micro-needling allows for the production of more collagen to enhance youthfulness. The combination can stimulate the collagen in your face to produce stronger and firmer skin.
What to Expect From PRP Treatments
Though the results may not be said to be dramatic but in a matter of weeks, changes should be clearly visible.
Within a few weeks after the procedure, the newly created collagen will start to grow and generating lots of healthy cells underneath your skin. At this stage, patients begin to see improvement in skin color, texture, and quality. You’ll experience a fresher and youthful look in your skin. After your PRP For Face Treatment, you should make out tie for the body to naturally heal. You may experience some mild redness, and swelling at the spot of the injection.

No Foreign Body is Introduced into Your Body
The PRP procedure whether for hair or face depends on the blood. The human blood is composed of the white blood cells, the red blood cells, the plasma, and platelets. Plasma is the fluid portion of the blood that carries nutrients and blood cells all around the body. The platelets are those tiny cells in your blood that rush to spots of injuries to form a clot and repair the area. Platelets are responsible for stimulating and enhance hair follicle functions.
The process is about taking your blood samle and transferring to another location after processing. So, you don’t need fear infections or allergic reactions since your blood is the material used and not from another.
At our center, our specialist will take you through a three-step process for your PRP for hair treatment. On your consultation visit, he will examine your medical records and find out whether you are under medication at the time.

- Red blood cells

PRP for Face and Hair FAQs
What is the secret of PRP for face or hair work?
The growth factor in your own blood is the special ingredient in this facial, hence the name ‘vampiric’ facial. Growth factor can serve different purposes depending on where it is injected. In the face, growth factor stimulates collagen producing the anti aging effect whereas in the hair, growth factors stimulates the hair follicles leaving stronger and thicker hair. Famous footballers have been known to use growth factor for muscle and joint repair as well.
What is the downtime or recovery time for this treatment?
Recovery from PRP is very short.
For hair PRP, you can go about your normal daily actives directly after treatment. We advise not to wash your hair the same of the treatment.
For face PRP, you may also return to normal daily activities the same day. Be aware that on the day of treatment and for some patients the next day as well, it may look like your skin is reddish like you have had a strong sunburn.
How many sessions are recommended?
Usually we recommend 4-6 sessions approximately 3 weeks apart for optimum results. Do note that each session builds on the last but your result will be visible after the first session alone. During your consultation our specialist will give you the exact number of sessions for your particular treatment and goals.
