Living Healthy And Looking Younger

Platelet Rich Plasma

A baby’s skin is soft, plump, smooth and generally flawless. From the age of 27 our skin begins to lose collagen; a protein found in our connective tissue that aids in skins cell renewal, firmness and suppleness. As collagen is vital for our skins elasticity, its loss causes cell structures to weaken and the skin to become thin, resulting in a ‘wrinkled’ or ‘sagging’ appearance.

Over the years technology has evolved including treatments and products available to treat ‘sagging’ and ‘wrinkling’. There is a wide array of external non-invasive products and treatments as well as being various internal invasive options. Invasive treatments can make individuals coy and reluctant to admit what they have had done because products such as dermal fillers are synthetic, therefore frowned upon even though they are manufactured to replicate our skins own components.

Synthetic treatments are not for everyone but the invasive skin rejuvenation process should not be dismissed due to this.

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is a fantastic cutting edge treatment that allows an individual to treat their aging skin using their own blood (autologous) products.

PRP has been used in modern medicine since the 1990’s due to the significance of growth factors within wound healing. It has been used in various medical fields and surgeries including cardiac, orthopaedic (bone), plastic, maxillofacial (mouth), skin grafting and dermatology.

In 2004 PRP was introduced into the cosmetic field as a treatment for ‘aging’ skin.

The process entails the patient giving a small blood sample from their forearm followed by their blood being spun in a centrifuge to separate the blood elements.

The Platelet Rich Plasma collected is a live tissue sample containing growth factors, platelets, hormones, water, leucocytes, enzymes, anti-bodies, electrolytes, nutrients, mesenchymal stem cells to name but a few.

PRP stimulates the production of collagen and elastin enabling the treatment to be used to target:

  • Skin rejuvenation and tightening
  • Facial volume enhancement
  • Acne or other types of scarring
  • Facial ridges or grooves
  • Cellulite

As mentioned previously, platelets play a large role in wound healing which also occurs through a tiny injection injury, hence through the PRP injection puncture sites in the targeted areas.

The skins aging process is enhanced by factors including:

  • Lifestyle:
  •  Sleep
  •  Alcohol
  • Smoking
  •  Nutrition
  • Amino-Acids are essential for the composition of protein and collagen
  • Environment:
  • UV exposure
  • Disease

Through lifestyle and nutritional strategies we can definitely help slow and reverse elements of the aging decline. Turning back the clock is not possible; however with the aid of PRP we are able to naturally enhance the rejuvenation process, allowing your skin to repair whilst regenerating its collagen supply, in turn making your skin appear younger.
