Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)

The Power of your Blood!

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) has become a highly sought-after non-surgical procedure for facial and skin rejuvenation.

The treatment uses your own blood platelets to stimulate new cell growth, helping to improve your complexion, skin texture and to restore lost facial volume.

The concentrated platelet rich plasma contains increased concentrations of certain growth factors and proteins that promote new capillary formation, collagen production and damaged tissue repair. These bioactive growth factors facilitate accelerated tissue repair and promotes skin rejuvenation.

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy Edmonton

PRP stands for Platelet Rich Plasma.   It is also known as the Vampire Face Lift.  It involves blood being drawn from a patient, and the blood is then put into a centrifuge to separate the platelets and serum from the blood cells.  The resulting concentrated solution is enriched in platelets and growth factors. Once this solution is injected into the skin, it can dramatically aid in tissue repair and promote collagen.

How can PRP be used to enhance your skin and appearance?

The PRP, injected into particular areas of the skin, act as a matrix that promotes your own collagen and regenerated tissue to result in improved tone and tightened skin.  PRP is great for scarring, facial rejuvenation, dark under eye circles, and even hair loss in both men and women. This treatment is highly effective and the best part is that it uses only the body’s own natural

Usually 3 PRP treatments spaced 4-6 weeks apart are recommended for ideal results.

How does PRP therapy differ from Dermal Fillers?

Hyaluronic acid fillers, such as Restylane and Emervel, are made of solid material that fills lines and wrinkles.  These fillers are quick fixes to soften deeper lines and folds.   They usually last 6-18 months and a repeat treatment is then required to fill the area again.

PRP on the other hand stimulates your own collagen for total facial rejuvenation.  PRP is used for individuals to volumize their faces by plumping out cheek indentation, soften under eye hollows, address hyperpigmentation, and improve the overall skin tone and texture.

Both PRP and fillers can be used in conjunction as they supplement each other to give the best final outcome: a more youthful looking face.

Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy (or PRP treatment) is rapidly becoming a must have procedure if you wish to stay young.  It is a great maintenance and treatment choice for all individuals as it harnesses the natural forces of your body.

What does PRP therapy involve?

PRP therapy involves using blood samples taken from patients. These samples are then placed into a centrifuge, which is used to separate the platelet plasma. The platelets contain growth factors and those are then injected into areas where they are needed in order to encourage the production of new collagen, keratin and more.

What to expect from PRP therapy?

If you undertake PRP therapy, you can expect to start seeing results within the first few weeks. Many patients report that they look and feel generally healthier, with glowing, vibrant and healthy skin.

These benefits can last for long periods, potentially as long as 18 months. PRP is also a very non- invasive procedure. It is well regarded by the scientific community and there is ample evidence to support its effectiveness. With all this in mind, it makes the ideal choice for anyone who is looking for an effective and non-invasive solution to treat wrinkles and other problems.

PRP is also commonly used to treat sports injuries, it can be effective against chronic pain and it is used to accelerate healing and recovery following surgery. It is increasingly being sought out for cosmetic purposes now too and for literally reversing the aging process, by allowing patients to ‘heal themselves’.
