PRP in Aesthetics

PRP in aesthetic medicine is an exciting avenue that has produced tremendous results for clients looking to achieve a more youthful appearance. The platelets induce massive fibroblasts which are cells found in skin that act as soldiers in the battle against aging. Platelets release growth factors that work to eliminate necrotic tissue and boost cell regeneration. Growth factors (bioactive proteins) attract macrophages which are large white blood cells that eat up cellular debris and produce stem cells for tissue repair.Clients looking looking to reverse photodamage and accelerated aging benefit from the tissue renegeration that PRP offers.

For those looking to volumize areas where descent and deflation has taken place PRP is a formidable alternative to dermal fillers. The gel serum that is created when the blood is centrifuged and the platelet rich plasma is separated and injected to areas on the face and body where sagging has occurred. Because PRP stimulates 3-5 times as many stem cells found in normal blood it helps to boost collagen. PRP can plump cheeks fill in the nasal labial folds and soften the hollows under the eyes.

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) or the “Angel Lift” is the newest addition to our treatments available at Medivive. Popularly known as the “Vampire face lift” this treatment uses your own blood to facilitate skin rejuvenation.

This is a fantastic natural therapy and we have introduced cutting edge technology at Medivive. Your blood is drawn and fed through the latest innovation in platelet concentration-the Tricel PRP system. Compared to other systems this produces the most concentrated and ideal platelet mix and so affording better, longer lasting results. The PRP is then injected into the treatment area which will have typically been anaesthetised with a topical anaesthetic.

The growth factors released from the concentrated platelets activate resident stem cells and dormant skin cells. This stimulates new production and epithelial cell growth resulting in a dramatic improvement in skin health and appearance. Because your own plasma is used, there is no danger of disease transmission or allergic reaction.

There may be some minor discomfort during the procedure mainly due to the slight acidity of the PRP. There may be some redness, slight swelling and possible mild bruising following the treatment. These are all temporary and will resolve over a few days.

Your skin texture will respond as new tissue cells grow and visible results may take 3-6 weeks and continue for up to 6 months. Results will depend upon your overall health status, age, dietary variations, whether you smoke and other health factors including your unique skin type. Follow up treatments may be necessary at 4-6 week intervals.
