Science of PRP
PRP works by recreating and stimulating the body's natural healing process. When tissue is injured, the body responds by sending specific ‘super healer’ cell types to the site of injury to start the repairing process and regeneration of new tissue. These ‘super healer’ cells are platelets.
Cosmetic PRP Facial Rejuvenation is a procedure that harnesses the healing power of platelets and growth factors from your blood to stimulate a stem cell response. These stem cells assist in creating new collagen and blood vessels, repair and regenerate damaged skin to help slow and reverse the signs of ageing.
Why are platelets the ‘super healer’ cells?
Platelets perform many functions in our bodies, including formation of a blood clot and release of growth factors (GF) into injured tissue or a wound to start the healing process. Ageing skin requires a helping hand to initiate the healing and repair process, and this is where PRP therapy excels. PRP provides all of the essential Growth Factors (GFs) that stimulate healing and improves the body’s own ability to heal in a safe and effective way.
A biological and natural approach to facial rejuvenation
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy is the ultimate biological skin rejuvenation treatment. It uses the patient’s own cells to refresh the complexion and provide overall rejuvenation by repairing the elasticity, colour and quality of the skin which minimises wrinkles, scarring, and crepey skin.
Is there evidence that PRP works?
Worldwide research has proven that PRP is effective for regeneration of tissues. Published clinical studies have demonstrated that PRP is beneficial for rejuvenation of facial ageing, including wrinkling in persons with modest grades of photo or chronological aging. There are over 5,000 published scientific research papers on the use of PRP to improve healing – across all treatment areas, eg: surgery, sports medicine, orthopaedic, dental and aesthetic.
