Whether you’re looking for a subtle way to combat the aging of your skin or simply seek a rejuvenated look without surgery, platelet-rich plasma injection therapy might be right for you. Platelet-rich plasma treatments involve removing some of the patient’s blood and injecting part of it back into the skin. The treatment, which is sometimes called a vampire facelift, can reduce the visibility of fine lines and makes the surface of the face fuller and tauter for a youthful look.
Platelet-rich plasma injections are thought to be important for cellular regeneration, the healing of tissue, and the production of collagen in the skin. After your blood is removed by your doctor, it is placed in a centrifuge where the fibrin and platelets are separated from the rest of the blood. Separating the platelet-rich plasma is important because it assists in the regeneration of cells, the healing of damaged tissue, and the recovery of tissue. Then, the plasma is injected into targeted areas of the skin. The results show a subtle reduction in skin dullness and the appearance of fine lines.
While platelet-rich plasma treatments work to improve skin texture and tautness for many people, there are some people that should opt for other kinds of skin treatments. Those who suffer from a minor or major infection, those who have a low platelet count in their plasma, those who have a metastatic disease or cancer, and those who are pregnant or breastfeeding should not try platelet-rich plasma treatments but can seek other options at Awazen.
Recovering after platelet-rich plasma therapy is simple. If there is any pain afterward, some patients take over-the-counter medication to reduce pain and reduce the minor swelling that may occur in the two days following the procedure. It’s recommended to refrain from any difficult activities until the swelling goes down. The effects of the platelet-rich plasma treatment can be seen to improve over the course of a few months after experiencing the procedure, and patients typically get the treatment every 12 – 18 months. Although injecting platelet-rich plasma only takes about 20 minutes, the skin appears plump and rejuvenated for long after the treatment is finished.
