How is the procedure performed?
Dr. Walter will consult with you about the procedure and decide on its suitability. A treatment plan and appointment are made for you.
When you arrive, the skin on the area to be treated is cleaned and a topical anesthetic applied for maximum comfort during the PRP treatment. and 10ml of your blood is taken.
You wait while Dr. Walter puts your blood into a machine called a centrifuge, which will extract the platelet rich plasma.
Finally the extraction is injected into the area to be treated with many fine insertions. The injections take only 5-10 minutes to carry out.
After your treatment the area should be kept clean for 24 hours to prevent infection
Results begin to show 3-4 weeks after the treatment session and continue to improve with time. Three treatment sessions are generally recommended, spaced 1-2 months apart, to achieve the best outcome.
WHAT IS THE SCIENCE BEHIND A PRP TREATMENT?
In simple terms the positive anti-aging activity of your blood comes from the platelets. These platelets contain an anti-clotting property that enable cells to adhere to each other when an injury occurs. Once the blood is taken from you it is put into a machine that separates the active anti-clotting element to be injected into the skin. The needle creates the ‘injury’ by puncturing the skin and the platelets go about the business of building a platform of clot. The result is a series of growth actions leading to new blood vessel formation, cell and collagen growth and tissue repair. Once this miraculous series of growth factors are activated the resulting skin condition smooths lines, restores glow and tightens skin condition.
