WHAT IS COSMETIC PRP?
SKINLIFE has been providing cosmetic PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) since 2008, many years ahead of other clinics in Canada. PRP Skin Rejuvenation Therapy, also known as “PRP Vampire Face Lift” is one of the signature aesthetic procedures and the most popular treatment at SKINLIFE. SKINLIFE was interviewed in 2010 November issue of Elle Canada magazine for cosmetic PRP in the recognition for its initial approach for PRP in North America. Cosmetic PRP (Platelet-Rich-Plasma) at SKINLIFE is a truly natural approach to rejuvenate skin. PRP (Platelet-Rich-Plasma) promotes skin that “never ages” and harnesses natural regenerative power of growth factors which create new blood vessels and elastic fibers such as collagen and elastin in the skin.
HOW COSMETIC PRP WORKS
Collagen and keratin are responsible for skin strength and elasticity, and its degradation leads to aging. The Skin Rejuvenation Therapy involves injection or topical application of PRP, which is a portion of your blood that contains concentrated growth factors. These growth factors create new blood vessels and stimulate proliferation of fibroblasts and keratinocytes which produce collagen and keratin respectively.
- What is the procedure like?
A small amount of blood is taken from the patient to produce platelet rich plasma. For treating entire face, PRP is injected via syringe and applied to the skin. For treating specific areas such as around the eyes and laugh lines, PRP is carefully injected to the target area.
- Is the procedure painful?
Numbing cream is applied to the face 90 minutes before the procedure, making the treatment very comfortable. Most patients do not feel much sensation.
- How long is the recovery time?
Typically, there is little to no down time associated with the treatment. Some redness of the treated area may last a day after treatment. Minor bruising may occur, but clears up in about a week or two. Make-up can be applied immediately after the treatment. Normal activity can be resumed immediately, but your face should be protected from the sun.
- How long is the treatment?
On the treatment day, the entire visit lasts about 2 hours. The actual procedure requires about 20 minutes.
- Is this a risky procedure?
PRP treatment is extremely safe. There is no risk of allergic reaction, because PRP is produced from your own blood. In addition, PRP contains concentrated amount of white blood cells, your natural defenders against infections. As a result, infection is extremely rare with our PRP treatment. In fact, after treating many patients with PRP for several years, we have yet to experience any complication.
