The aging process manifests in different ways. The skin is the largest organ in the body, and it undergoes a lot of transformation as we get older. The loss of collagen and elasticity produces fine lines and larger pores. Other changes include the appearance of dark spots and skin growths. Telangiectasias (spider veins) in the face are quite common around the nose in older people. Flaccid skin, hair thinning, hair loss etc., also occurs frequently with aging.
Are you wondering how to improve your looks using a natural method? PRP (platelet rich plasma) maybe your answer. By removing 30 or 60 cc of your blood and spinning it in a centrifuge, the platelet rich plasma gets separated and is ready to be applied to your skin and/or scalp for hair growth stimulation. The application is done with a micro-needling system and anesthesia cream is applied prior to the procedure. The platelet rich plasma contains growth factors and stimulates collagen and elastin in your skin, which thicken and tighten, improving your skin texture and tone. PRP greatly enhances, tightens and smooths skin with acne and acne scars, lightens rosacea and dark spots, shrinks large pores and tightens saggy skin on the face, hands and neck. PRP is great for décolleté rejuvenation (low neck line area). It also helps to increases hair growth and thickness and stimulates transplanted hair to grow thicker and healthier as well.
Of course, as with any other treatment, success depends on the baseline of the skin condition, which also determines the number of treatments needed. I don’t recommend PRP for smokers as nicotine greatly affects the microcirculation and blood supply to the skin and scalp. Your blood is processed at my office, in your presence, so there is no risk of your blood being confused with anyone else’s. I perform all treatments personally.
