Pure PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma)

Pure PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) by Emcyte®

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is an injectable treatment by which a person’s own blood is used. Platelets are fundamental in the process of tissue healing, and the growth of new cells.

PRP encourages collagen production, regenerates the skin tissue, and effectively reactivates your cells into rejuvenating themselves.

The release of growth factors supports the healing process. PRP softens fine lines and wrinkles, tightens the skin, and improves skin tone and texture.

The treatment of PRP involves a portion of blood, collected from
the individual patient into a syringe. The collected blood is then rotated down in a special centrifuge to separate its components. The platelet rich plasma is then reinjected, and/or micro-needled back into the skin.

Typically, a PRP treatment takes about an hour to complete. This
depends on if the PRP is administered through injections only, and/or micro-needled into the skin. This timeframe includes an additional 30 minutes for the blood to be drawn and spun in the centrifuge, and topical numbing to be applied.

Some mild discomfort may be felt while the PRP is being reinjected. The sensation usually felt is a burning or tingling sensation. This sensation only lasts a few minutes after the PRP injected.

We ensure our patients are comfortable throughout the entire PRP treatment and apply topical numbing cream and ice to reduce any discomfort.

Usually, patients notice tightening and a more even tone to their skin in a week or two after PRP injections. These results continue to build for up to 6 months after treatment.

Results from PRP injections can be seen for many years after treatment. However, these results vary due to the individual’s natural variation in quality of Platelet Rich Plasma, as well as their lifestyle.

For cosmetic purposes, PRP is most popularly used to treat the face, neck, and scalp.

There is no downtime associated PRP injections.

However, after your treatment, your skin may be red. This is normal and to be expected. Redness usually lasts from 1 hour to 24 hours. You
may also have a little swelling in some areas. Recovery time varies from patient to patient.

Results can be seen after one treatment, but the exact number of
treatments needed varies from patient to patient. Generally, 2‐3 treatments are advised, but more may be indicated for some individuals.

PRP used for aesthetic procedures are safe for most individuals.

The most common side effects associated with PRP injections are
mild to moderate swelling and redness.

Patients with certain health conditions and who are pregnant are
not a candidate for PRP injections. Consultation and assessment will be made to ensure that you are the right candidate for PRP injections.
