PRP TREATMENT DUBAI
The use of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) for rejuvenation of ageing facial skin has seen a constant increase in popularity for the past few years. The main action of the PRP is to stimulate the tissue, causing mild inflammation which results in the healing action and development of new collagen. During several weeks after the treatment, the platelet stimulates growth factors which helps stimulate increased collagen effect. As this collagen matures, it begins to shrink and tightens the skin.
Immediately after the treatment, the skin will be red. It usually appears as a “sunburnt-like” redness. Also, minimal swelling and bruising are also expected which will usually last for 12 to 24 hours.
You will notice an improved skin texture and tone within three weeks. However, the maximum collagen regeneration requires 3 months. The advantage of PRP is that it can be used in all skin types and tones.
The total time of the procedure typically lasts around one hour, including the application of the anaesthetic cream.
To begin, the nurse will clean the face and apply an anaesthetic cream on the face which will be left in place for 30 minutes. She will then take 8mL of your blood from a vein in the arm. The tube with the blood will then be placed in a centrifuge machine to separate the red blood and the platelet-rich plasma. This separation process takes around 5 minutes.
Once the anaesthetic cream has taken effect, the face will be cleaned and made ready for the main treatment. The surgeon will use a dermapen to help penetrate the PRP into the skin. Lastly, a special cream will then be applied to protect the skin.
After the treatment, it is best to avoid direct sunlight and sauna for a couple of weeks. You can wash your face the next day in order for the PRP to be absorbed well.
PRP is not only an effective facial rejuvenation treatment to improve skin texture and hydration but also used as a filler to create an immediate long-lasting volumetric effect.
