PRP stands for Platelet Rich Plasma, which is blood plasma containing a high concentration of platelets, also known as thrombocytes, PRP can help regenerate and revitalise damaged tissue.
A small sample of blood is taken from your arm, exactly like having a routine blood test. The blood is centrifuged, and 10 minutes later, the PRP has been separated from the whole blood and is ready to use.
Once on site, the growth factors and other regenerative molecules are released leading to collagen and elastin formation as well as cellular growth and skin remodelling. This may result in skin rejuvenation and a reduction in wrinkles and scars.
This treatment may improve skin texture and tone, refine wrinkles and reduce scars such as acne or stretch marks while preserving a natural appearance. PRP can also be used to promote hair growth when injected into the scalp. Visible results may take up to 6-8 weeks and will vary between individuals. This variance depends on factors such as general health, age, diet, smoking and skin type.
This will be independent on your individual situation. Often Cellenis PRP treatment is performed in a series of two to three sessions, 3-6 weeks apart. Maintenance treatments are recommended every 6-12 months for optimal long lasting results. Discuss your treatment plan with your healthcare professional.
Dermal filler is a synthetic material used to fill a wrinkle or to add volume, where as PRP is an autologous natural substance used to address skin laxity, fine lines and improve skin complexion.
Clinical evidence has shown that combining PRP with other rejuvenation techniques, such as fillers, mesotherapy and laser treatments, induces a synergistic beneficial effect.
PRP treatment is generally well tolerated. The most common side effects include: local irritation or redness and mild to moderate swelling. Consult your healthcare professional if you have any questions or concerns.
