Platelet Rich Plasma

PRP means Platelet Rich Plasma, natural anti-aging procedure and biological skin remodelling by extracting your own blood. PRP has high platelet concentration, separated from the whole blood. We take 11 to 22 ml of blood depending on the area of treatment and centrifuge in a machine and take the yellow-coloured fluid (plasma with platelets). It has large quantities of growth factors.

  • Increases the growth factor
  • Increases the collagen and elastin formation
  • Cellular growth and skin rejuvenation and a reduction in wrinkles and scars.
  • Increases the growth of the hair follicles.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF PRP?

  • Improves skin texture and tone and enhances glowing skin
  • Refine wrinkles / fine lines
  • Reduce scars such as acne or stretch marks while preserving a natural appearance.
  • Hair rejuvenation
  • Improves stretch marks
  • Improves dark circles

Visible results may take up to 8 weeks and vary between individuals. This variance depends on factors general health, age, diet smoking and skin type and sun damage.

We will book an appointment with Dr Narayan for a consultation to discuss about your concerns, medical health condition and assess the suitability for the treatment to achieve the desired aesthetic outcome.

WHAT TO EXPECT DURING TREATMENT

  • Dr Narayan will prepare the skin to minimise the risk of infection
  • Topical anaesthetics over the treatment area and wait for 30 mins before starting the treatment.
  • While waiting for the anaesthetic medication to work Dr Narayan will take blood and process it to separate the platelets
  • Expect to have some discomfort but mostly well tolerated and we use high tech needle to minimise the pain.

ADVERSE EFFECTS

Any medical / cosmetic procedure or treatment has its own adverse events. PRP has minimal adverse effects.

  • Bruising, swelling which will improve within a week
  • Risk of infection is minimal – BBV risk free
  • Pain and discomfort after procedure is almost minimal and if needed can take paracetamol.

AFTER CARE INSTRUCTIONS:

  • In case of mild swelling and bruising – can have paracetamol as recommended.
  • Avoid applying make up for up to 24 to 48 hrs.
  • Avoid sweating, excessive physical activity, massaging for 48 hrs.
  • Avoid hot and humid exposure.
  • Avoid smoking, caffeine, alcohol up to 48 hrs.

PRP is done only by doctors and specially trained nurses working with a doctor.

Generally, the duration of treatment ranges between 60 – 90 minutes, although it may vary depending on the  client’s treatment requirement.

Face, Scalp, Neck, Decolletage, Hands and Knees

To achieve desired aesthetic results – will need 3 to 4 sessions at least 2 to 4 weeks apart and maintenance treatment every 6 to 12 months

Yes, you can, however given the risk of adverse effects with numbing cream – maximum you can have numbing cream over the 2 areas (usually face and neck). Often clients are happy to have PRP – decolletage area without numbing cream as pain is well tolerated there.

Unlike dermal fillers, you do not see any immediate effect. The plasma when injected under the eye bags and eyelids gets absorbed and leads to skin regeneration within 2 to 3 days and continue to regenerate for months. You get new healthy skin after 2 to 3 months.

Avoid aesthetic procedures 2 weeks prior to any significant events or travel. Avoid taking blood thinning medications (fish oil, aspirin) if appropriate after consulting with your doctor.

The desired effects and the number of treatments required varies with individual, ongoing skin care treatment and sedentary lifestyles.
