What is It?
PRP, or platelet rich plasma, is a natural product of the body. By isolating it from the rest of the blood, PRP can be used to stimulate skin rejuvenation and renewal. During treatment, a small amount of blood is drawn from the patient. This blood is then spun in a centrifuge in order to separate the platelets from the rest of the blood’s components. Once the PRP is isolated, it is carefully injected back into the body, usually in the face, neck, or chest.
PRP can be used to correct a broad range of aesthetic conditions, including:
- Fine lines
- Uneven texture
- Skin laxity
- Large pores
- Thinning hair
PRP techniques are used during one of the most popular new aesthetic procedures available today — the Vampire Facelift. This exciting new procedure uses the power of PRP to lift, tighten, and rejuvenate the skin of the face. Our practice is also proud to use PRP to help treat thinning hair.
How Does it Work?
Platelets are one of the main healing components of the blood. They effectively strengthen, restore, and regenerate tissue within the body because of their high concentration of healing growth factors.
The number of platelets contained in processed PRP is significantly higher than those concentrated in normal blood. Because of this, when the blood is reinjected into the body, it triggers a great deal of healing and renewal within the skin. It encourages the body to strengthen existing tissue, produce additional structural proteins and enrich the area with healing nutrients. Over time, these fundamental changes in the skin result in a healthier, younger looking appearance.
What Can I Expect from Treatment?
Each PRP treatment takes a short 30 minutes to complete and usually involves little discomfort or downtime. It’s safe enough to be used on even the most sensitive areas of the skin, like the under eye area, mouth, cheeks, forehead, neck, and chest.
While the benefits of PRP are still being researched, many doctors and scientists have witnessed the amazing changes that PRP can bring to patients.
Before receiving a PRP treatment, patients must first schedule a consultation appointment with Dr. Hamawy. During this appointment, Dr. Hamawy will examine your skin and ask you about your aesthetic goals and medical history. Using this information, he will decide if PRP is right for you.
