Apart from the benefits in the medical field, PRP therapy is today being used to cure various cosmetic issues. People, troubled about wrinkles, fine lines, crepey skin around their nose or mouth, crow's feet around their eyes, drooping or sagging skin around the area of eyes or cheeks are the best candidates for PRP facelift procedure that will gift them an improved appearance with a fresh glow on the face.
Adding to this, PRP facelift procedure is also being used to improve the sagging or dehydration trouble that has appeared on the back of the hands or on top of elbows, feet and knees.
WHAT DOES THE TREATMENT INVOLVE?
The PRP facelift procedure enhances the body's own natural healing powers thus slowing and reversing the ageing process. In its process, PRP acts as a repair system, following which it places the growth factors in those areas that are in need of treatment for rejuvenation. Platelets are harvested from the patient's own blood and then injected into the skin areas that are either damaged or require efficient treatment. After this, the platelet sample is spun around in a centrifuge in order to separate the red blood cells from platelet rich plasma. The resulting platelets contain in them highly concentrated growth factors that help in healing the injured skin area. These growth factors then stimulate the repairing of the skin thereby increasing the volume and giving an overall rejuvenation to the skin.
