Platelet-rich plasma treatment has been widely used for cosmetic purposes. An important effect is the smoothening of skin texture and tone. Thereby, achieving a rejuvenated skin.
Platelet-rich plasma treatment acts by regenerating the tissue underneath by promoting collagen production. Collagen as we know provides the scaffolding of the body. It is a protein found all over the body. One of the main functions of collagen is providing structure and support. It provides integrity, firmness and elasticity to their structure.
Damaged collagen is a major cosmetic concern, but techniques are available to replace these damaged collagen. One technique is with the use of platelet-rich plasma.
Platelet-rich plasma treatment is done by collecting a small amount of blood. The collected blood is then placed in a centrifuge machine that separates the platelet-rich plasma from the other blood cells. Here in London Centre for Aesthetic Surgery Gulf, Drs. Maurizio and Roberto Viel use this for skin rejuvenation. They first apply an anaesthetic cream and wait for 30 minutes. Once 30 minutes has passed, they use a specialized dermapen needles to open the dermis. After which, they apply the collected platelet-rich plasma using the same needles. The treatment is almost pain-free. One effect immediately after the treatment is slight redness of the skin, but this will resolve after a few hours.
After the treatment, you need to avoid getting the face wet for at least 8-12 hours as well as sun exposure for 48 hours. You also need to apply sun block when going out in the sun. For a few days, you will feel dryness on the treated areas. All you need to do is to apply a good moisturizer. You will then see a difference after a couple of weeks.
