PRP Therapy Uses Scientific Principles to Heal
PRP therapy is based on the principle that the body is perfectly capable of healing itself and has all the compounds and chemicals needed to rejuvenate your appearance.
So, you don’t really need artificial and chemical products to regain flawless skin.
Like the National Center for Biotechnical Information reports, each time you have an injury, the body responds by flooding the area with all the elements necessary for healing.
Contained in your blood, these elements include platelets, growth factors, mesenchymal stem cells, cytokines, and various other agents. These agents cleanse the wound and create a framework so that the tissues can rebuild and repair.
They can also attract other healing cells to the wound site that can repair both, hard tissues like bone and cartilage, and soft tissues like muscles, skin, collagen, and blood vessels.
Creating the PRP Serum is a Simple Process
As a feature in the Archives of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery describes, doctors take a sample of your blood of around 10 ml to 20 ml. They spin this sample in a centrifugal device and separate the healing elements in it.
After isolating the miracle PRP serum, they inject it back into the flaws of your skin to reverse the damage caused by various factors. These causes can include age, environmental pollution, harmful effects of the sun, acne, surgery, or an injury.
No harmful additives or chemicals are used in the PRP serum. If needed, doctors may only add FDA-approved anti-clotting agents. This makes PRP therapy safe to use and one of the few treatments that has nothing but natural components to give you flawless skin.
The whole process takes just 60 to 90 minutes - from extracting the serum to administering it into your skin.
PRP Therapy Forms the Basis of Kim Kardashian’s Vampire Facelifts
If you’ve been curious about the serum used in Kim Kardashian’s Vampire Facelifts, know that PRP has the capability to revive the lost glow of your skin by erasing pigmentation and signs of aging.
When the serum reaches into your skin, it promotes the flow of fresh blood and nutrients. The fresh infusion of blood also works to clear away the impurities and buildup of toxins in your skin. That’s how the pigmentation and dullness are erased.
The amazing factor about PRP is that it combines well with other techniques to enhance their effects.
Kim Kardashian used the technique of micro-needling to introduce the serum into the deeper layers of her skin. The result? An amazing glow and flawless skin that she proudly shows off.
PRP Can Reverse the Signs of Aging for Youthful Skin
In place of micro-needling, your dermatologist may choose to simply inject the serum at varying depths into the signs of aging like fine lines, wrinkles, folds and skin and creases.
By working on the underlying layer of collagen and elastin in your skin, the serum can induce the layer to produce new cells. As the skin rejuvenates and plumps up, you notice wrinkle-free younger-looking skin.
Perhaps, that’s the secret to Angelina Jolie’s ageless, flawless skin. It might interest you to know that British actor Rupert Everett also swears by the age reversal effects of PRP.
Looking at him, can you believe he’s 55?
You Can Try PRP for Various Skin Flaws
Should you read the reviews by patients on Real Self, you’ll learn that PRP therapy can help you with skin flaws like acne marks and injury scars.
When you have an injury, acne, or surgery, the skin heals naturally by forming collagen and skin on the wound. However, the repaired area shows a scar because healing takes place gradually. The new collagen fibers align in an uneven pattern unlike the smooth framework in undamaged skin.
To help you regain flawless skin, doctors may remove the scar tissue and place the PRP serum on the fresh wound so that it heals more quickly and evenly.
Depending on the kind of scarring you have, dermatologists may choose to perform subcision where they use a needle to break the tough scar fibers. Next, they place the serum under the scar tissue so that it heals with the minimum of scarring.
In case you’re wondering, PRP works on tough burn scars too.
Anyone can get PRP Therapy
Any person young or old can get PRP therapy to reverse the effects of aging and other factors. Given that the serum is created from your own body tissues, you need not worry about any possible allergic reactions or side effects.
Right after the session, you can expect some amount of redness and swelling. But, these are signs that the serum is working on your skin. You’ll probably notice the after effects settling within a couple of days.
In four week’s time, you’ll notice gradual improvement as your skin revives and gets back its lost glow. Depending on the natural healing capabilities of your skin, you might need one or two follow-up treatments.
As for how long the effects last?
You can confidently expect to see flawless skin for up to 12 months after the initial session.
There you go!
