Specialist PRP treatment in Birmingham and the West Midlands
What is PRP?
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) treatment is a non-surgical cosmetic treatment that uses a patient’s own blood plasma to promote healing and rejuvenation of the skin. The treatment involves extracting a small sample of the patient’s blood, which is then processed in a centrifuge to separate the platelet-rich plasma (PRP) from the other components of the blood. The PRP is then injected or applied topically to the targeted area of the skin.
How is PRP prepared?
The treatment itself is relatively quick, usually taking between 30 minutes to an hour to complete. The practitioner will draw a small amount of blood from the patient and then process it to separate the platelet-rich plasma. The platelet-rich plasma is then injected to the targeted areas of the skin. You may experience some mild discomfort or swelling during the procedure, but this should subside within a few days.
What can PRP be used for?
The main benefit of PRP treatment is that it can stimulate the body’s natural healing process to promote collagen production and tissue regeneration. This can improve the overall texture and tone of the skin, making it look more youthful and radiant. PRP treatment can be effective in reducing the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, and acne scars, as well as improving the overall tone and texture of the skin.
PRP treatment can also be used to enhance the results of other cosmetic treatments, such as microneedling. It can be used to promote healing and rejuvenation after these procedures, which can improve the overall outcome and accelerate the recovery time.
Another benefit of PRP treatment is that it is a non-surgical treatment, which means that there is minimal downtime. You can return to your normal activities immediately after the treatment, with no need for a recovery period.
It’s also worth noting that PRP treatment can be used to treat other areas of the body, not just the face. It can be used to promote healing and rejuvenation in areas such as the hands, neck, décolletage, and even the scalp. It can be used to treat hair loss and promote hair growth.
How many sessions will I need?
The results of PRP treatment are typically visible within a few weeks and can last for up to a year. To maintain the desired results, it is recommended to have follow-up treatments.
It’s important to note that PRP treatment should only be administered by a qualified, experienced medical professional. Before undergoing treatment, you will have a consultation with the practitioner to discuss your desired outcome and any concerns you may have. The practitioner will also assess your skin and determine the best type of treatment.
Are there any side effects?
It’s important to mention that PRP treatment is an autologous treatment, meaning it uses the patient’s own blood, which reduces the risk of allergic reactions or side effects. This also makes the treatment more suitable for patients who have sensitive skin or have had allergic reactions to other cosmetic treatments.
