The power of PRP & Dermal Fillers for skin rejuvenation. Solihull & Birmingham

There is currently many uses for the treatment using platelet rich plasma (PRP), especially in the realm of cosmetic medicine. PRP is know by some as liquid gold obtained from your own cells that can be used to reverse unwanted signs of ageing and rejuvenate your skin. When used in combination with a dermal filler, the true magic of PRP is revealed. Platelet-Rich Plasma For Skin Rejuvenation PRP injections use the power of platelet cells to trigger accelerated healing deep down in the skin, which promotes collagen production. PRP is a very simple natural procedure that is created from your own blood. We take a small vial of blood from the arm, less even than is required for routine blood tests, and place it into a vial to be spun in a centrifuge. Through the process, the amount of blood platelets in the plasma becomes about 6x more concentrated. Platelets contain incredibly powerful growth factors and proteins that have immense healing power when unleashed near the site of an injury. This means that when PRP is injected into your skin, the concentrated growth factors and proteins activate to stimulate new collagen. Collagen is the critical component of the skin and body that is responsible for maintaining bright, smooth, elastic skin. After PRP injection treatment, your skin is able to heal itself to reverse sun damage, wrinkles, discoloration, sagginess, and other signs of aging. Furthermore, PRP can be used with dermal fillers, as the 2 treatments have different means. PRP and Dermal Fillers Combined PRP has incredible effects on its own, but can reach new heights when injected in combination with a dermal filler like Radiesse or Juvederm. These hyaluronic acid fillers are use essentially to create volume under the skin. This volume then fills wrinkles, alleviates age-related midface volume loss, and revives tired skin. When you receive PRP and a dermal filler together, your skin receives double the healing action. PRP is used on the skin itself. Interesting the Journal of Cosmetic Dermatology, reported that PRP and hyaluronic acid together generate clinically visible and statistically significant improvement in aging facial skin. It’s amazing that this quick in-office procedure can do so much for the skin. While the filler provides the instant volume corrections for sunken skin and wrinkles, the PRP stimulates regeneration of healthier, more taut skin. Patients who undergo this double treatment explain that they can see and feel the effects within just minutes, and also report that the results last up to six months longer, In some cases it can last 12 months.
