PRP Skin Rejuvenation, also known as the "Vampire Facial," is a non-surgical cosmetic procedure that harnesses the power of your body's own natural resources to enhance
skin texture, tone, and overall appearance.
How Does PRP Work?
The magic behind PRP lies in your blood. Here's how it works:
Blood Collection:To start, a small amount of your blood is drawn, just like a regular blood test.
Plasma Separation: Your blood is then placed in a centrifuge, which separates the red blood cells from the plasma.
Platelet-Rich Plasma: The golden ticket is the plasma, rich in platelets, growth factors, and other healing elements. This PRP is then prepared for your skin treatment.
Microneedling or Injection: Depending on the chosen method, the PRP is either applied topically and absorbed through microneedling or injected directly into targeted areas of the skin.
What to Expect
Minimal Discomfort: You may experience mild discomfort during the procedure, but don't worry; a topical numbing cream is applied to ensure your comfort.
Quick Procedure: PRP sessions are relatively quick, typically taking less than an hour.
Minimal Downtime: There might be some redness and swelling post-tre
atment, but it's usually short-lived and can be easily concealed with makeup.
Gradual Improvement: Results are not instant; they develop over several weeks as your skin naturally regenerates.
Benefits of PRP Skin Rejuvenation
Natural Beauty Enhancement: PRP uses your body's natural resources to rejuvenate your skin, ensuring a more youthful and natural look.
Collagen Boost: It stimulates collagen production, which is essential for firm, plump skin.
Reduced Fine Lines and Wrinkles: Say goodbye to those pesky lines and wrinkles; PRP can visibly reduce their appearance.
Improved Skin Texture: PRP can help with uneven skin texture, acne scars, and enlarged pores.
Youthful Glow: Achieve that coveted youthful glow and refreshed appearance.
Minimal Risk: Since it's derived from your own blood, there's minimal risk of allergies or adverse reactions.
Does PRP hurt ?
There is some minor discomfort and a very mild stinging sensation may be felt but these are done with a very fine needle to minimise any pain.
What are the side effects ?
Side effects from PRP face treatment are very mild because it is unlikely that the body will have an adverse reaction to its own materials. At most, you may expect to experience mild to moderate swelling and/or redness or heat in the area of treatment, which are common side effects in the activation of your platelets. In addition, because a volume of fluid is administered to the area, some bruising can occur and may take a few days to disappear.
What are the risks and complications ?
All non-invasive treatments carry a small element of risk, which is why at Est-Ethics we only carry out treatments after a face to face consultation, during which we will assess you, and detail the cautions and contradictions for the procedure.
How does PRP face treatment differ from other injections and fillers ?
PRP stimulates your own collagen to grow for total facial rejuvenation rather than individual area improvement. In contrast, hyaluronic acid fillers work by means of solid material that fill lines and skin folds in the face. These fillers are indicated to soften deeper lines such as the folds around the mouth area or to plump lips. They usually last from 6-18 months; repeated treatments are required to fill the area again. PRP face treatment is more effective for volumising faces, plumping out cheek indentations, softening eye hollows, improve the overall tone, tightness, and texture of the skin, and filling in areas where hyaluronic acid fillers cannot reach or are not safe to use.
In summary, PRP Skin Rejuvenation is a transformative solution in the field of aesthetics. With its natural, safe, and effective approach, it offers the promise of enhanced skin quality and a more youthful appearance. At Est-Ethics Wellness Clinic, we stand by the incredible potential of PRP to rejuvenate your skin.
