What is PRP Treatment?
Dracula treatment also known as PRP or platelet-rich plasma is a facial rejuvenation treatment that enhances skin texture and improves facial complexion.
It involves the use of micro-needling to introduce the PRP to the skin. The damage caused by the microneedle stimulates the underlying tissues to inflame, which triggers the healing process and results in the formation of new collagen. With the introduction of PRP, which has a healing effect, the skin is significantly renewed. Also, PRP has a significant amount of growth factors which are also responsible for promoting collagen renewal.
Who are the Best Candidates?
The best candidates are healthy adults who want to look and feel good. You might consider PRP treatment if you experience the following: wrinkles, lines, skin dullness.
How is PRP Treatment Done?
The treatment begins with the application of numbing cream to the face. This numbing cream is left for 30 minutes and then cleaned off. At the same time, a nurse will be extracting approximately 8-10 ml of blood from the forearm. The collected blood is then placed on a centrifuge machine– which separates the PRP from the other components of the blood.
Once the concentrated PRP has been separated, it is then applied on the face using Dermapen – very thin needles.
What happens next?
Temporary redness is common immediately after the procedure. This redness lasts for a couple of hours or more. Burning sensation on the face is also experienced by patients. Make sure to avoid sun exposure and to always protect the face using a hat and sunblock.
When will I see the result?
Initially, facial dryness is common. Facial moisturisers during this time are crucial. After a few days, skin complexion improves. Most patients describe the result as having a youthful glow.
How many sessions do I need?
The result of PRP treatment can last between 4 to 8 months. Therefore, maintenance sessions of two to three times a year is recommended for optimal improvement.
