Platelet-rich plasma PRP is a revolutionary technology, using ingredients of your own blood, which can help regenerate and rejuvenate your skin providing you with age-defying results – suitable for all skin types. Platelet-rich plasma or PRP is the part of the blood that is rich in growth and repairing factors (active proteins) essential for tissue regeneration and healing. These growth factors mimic the body’s natural wound healing process. During this process collagen, elastin and new blood vessels are increased, and damaged skin repaired and regenerated. Collagen is what gives skin a youthful appearance but as we age collagen production is reduced causing wrinkles and fine lines. To rejuvenate your skin these growth factors must be injected into your skin to create new collagen for vibrant skin that looks refreshed and glowing.
The procedure is usually an hour. Patients may have some subtle skin redness after the procedure. Recovery time is less than 24 hours. We recommend no excessive exercise for 24 hours after the procedure. Before your treatment it is important to disclose all medication including herbal medicine with your practitioner. Do not use any anti-inflammatory medication or topical creams for 2-3 days before your treatment. Medication that contains aspirin should be stopped 1 week before treatment. Always speak to your physician first before stopping any medication. We recommend you do not wash your face until the following morning. Your face wash may irritate your skin and it is best to keep the gel applied after the treatment on as long as possible. The serum applied after the procedure assists in the wound healing process and seals the injection sites. You may apply make-up 12 hours after treatment. Stay out of the sun directly after treatment
Research and our doctors’ results have shown that the best results are obtained if you have your second treatment 2-3 weeks after your initial treatment.
After the two initial treatments DIAMOND PRP is performed every four months (three times per year). If Botox and Fillers are part of your anti-aging rejuvenation regime DIAMOND PRP is recommended 1-2 weeks before or after your treatment.
DIAMOND PRP does not provide the immediate plumping short-term effect of neurotoxins and fillers but needs to be included as part of your yearly skin rejuvenation regime as it is the only procedure that can provide you with a more youthful overall glowing and vibrant complexion with a long-term benefit in improving your overall skin health and age defying results.
