What is more natural than you?
The beauty of this treatment is that it is 100% natural.
Unlike fillers that use synthetic substances, it uses your own body’s regenerative power to address skin defects and volume loss, triggering production of new cells, new vessels and new collagen formation.
Because this filler is made from your own blood, there is no risk for rejection, infection, or an allergic reaction.
A small amount of your own blood is drawn into a tube. This tube is then spun in a centrifuge to separate the Platelet-Rich-Plasma (PRP) from the other elements of the blood.
The PRP is then injected in the areas to be treated, as previously planned during consultation. These injection sites are numbed with topical or local anesthesia prior to the procedure, making it painfree.
The entire procedure takes about 30 minutes to perform in the outpatient clinic.
PRP, by definition is a plasma rich in platelets.
Why platelets? Because platelets release a multitude of growth factors that activate and rejuvenate cells in our body.
PRP is not a new concept: it has been used as clinical tool for several types of medical treatments, including nerve injury, tendinitis, osteoarthritis, bone repair and regeneration, sports injuries in professional athletes, plastic and oral surgery...
Although I inject the full face to give better hydration and glow, I like to focus on specific individual concerns: skin issues such as pigmentations, dark or blue circles, scars including acne scars and stretch marks, specific areas such as tear trough, crow’s feet, dry lips, nasolabial folds, marionette lines, neck, hands, inner arms, knees, etc… It can be used all over the body with excellent results: skin is re‐plumped and rejuvenated.
Alone or combined with other procedures such as neuromodulator (Botox®, Dysport®) or fillers, it gives 100% satisfaction.
After one session, you’ll notice a refreshed and youthful appearance, improvement of pigmentations and scars, and a better skin tone. Results will show after three weeks.
It’s recommended to do two to three sessions, three to four weeks apart for optimal results lasting 12+ months. The number of treatments needed depends on each individual patient, the desired outcome, and the treatment plan. Better results are seen with more treatments.
There are many benefits of using PRP treatment to promote hair growth. PRP injections have been shown to generate new hair growth and thicken thinned out hair.
It seems that platelet growth factors can “wake up” dormant hair follicles and begin the production of new hair. Enhanced hair growth and hair diameter is noted after 4 months.
