What is PRP?

PRP is not all that new - platelet rich plasma injections have been around for decades, helping athletes to heal sports related injuries but increasingly the benefits of PRP are being used in beauty. The platelet rich plasma that is injected is a concentrated formula of your own platelets, which makes it rich in growth factors. Such growth factors are needed to repair the body, and come in handy too when trying to fight the signs of aging. When going for a PRP treatment the practitioner will take some blood from you, then that blood is processed using a mechanical device to separate the platelets from the rest of the blood making the concentration of platelets three to four times the normal level.

How does it work?

Platelets are activated in the body, and they release healing proteins called growth factors. These growth factors have a range of responsibilities, a predominant feature of which is their ability to accelerate tissue repair and improve wound healing. When PRP is injected into the skin, the injection entry point causes a small wound which activates the platelets and lets them get to work repairing the tissue in that area. (Hence Kim Kardashian's bloody looking face). Effectively PRP is encouraging your body to use its own processes but more effectively in the places that are starting to need a bit of extra help.

What about the results?

Immediately post treatment you may have some redness and spotting but in terms of looking more youthful, you'll have to be patient. It also makes sense that the younger you are the better the result as your body's natural healing processes are quicker. Gradually your skin will have a subtle improvement that will give you a fresher look than before - without putting anything foreign into the skin. It's a much more natural approach to anti-aging - both for the fact you're using your body's own material and for the fact the results develop over time.

Who is it best for?

PRP will offer the best results to those with bad acne scarring as it helps the skin's healing processes, but PRP is also a good option for those not keen to use synthetic products like fillers or Botox but are still interested in improving their skin's condition and appearance. It's also an effective method to treat fine lines and to improve the overall texture of the skin, but for more noticeable results, a combination treatment may be more satisfactory.
