Thankfully, there is a more natural way to improve the appearance of these problem areas.
PRP or Platelet Rich Plasma is a fantastic anti-ageing solution which is sometimes called the ‘Vampire Facial’. But, the ‘Vampire Facial’ is not just an anti-ageing blood treatment for your face. In fact, PRP has proven to be one of the best natural alternatives to improve aged and wrinkled skin on many areas of your body including:
– Hand Rejuvenation
– Scarring (acne / trauma)
– Stretch Marks from weight gain or pregnancy
– Balding – PRP can be injected or needling into the scalp to help stimulate hair growth on men & women
– Enlarged Pores
PRP is often mistakenly advertised as an alternative to injectables or fillers. It is not. PRP is a revolutionary anti-ageing treatment using 100% of your own blood cells which are then spun in a centrifuge to separate plasma from the red blood cells. PRP draws – quite literally – on your own blood by re-injecting higher concentrations of blood platelets, which release growth factors to the treatment site. These growth factors ‘speak the language’ of stem cells and kick-start rejuvenation from the inside out. This in turn increases collagen production to achieve thicker, smoother and more supple skin.
Why collagen is key to looking younger?
The collagen in your skin is what gives young skin its firm, plump appearance. However, as we age our body’s ability to produce collagen declines, this is where PRP comes in. The growth factors can be injected by a Registered Nurse or skin needled into the areas we are concerned about – which stimulates collagen production in that area, resulting in a more youthful appearance.
The platelets injected also contain a range of growth factors that your body uses to rejuvenate tissue. When PRP is injected or needled into the hair line/scalp – growth factors can stimulate hair growth which can help to thicken the hair line and prevent thinning of hair. More importantly, the process involves no down time, no surgery!
