Plasma, a multipurpose serum
The injection of Plasma Rich in Platelets (PRP) by mesotherapy is a technique of cosmetic medicine allowing to improve the quality of the skin and that of the hair by acting on the direct consequences of aging.
A PRP injection is a treatment indicated for patients who desire embellishing rejuvenation of the face, cleavage, back and / or hands.
Platelet Rich Plasma allows:
PRP (Plasma Rich in Platelets) is a serum from the blood. It is obtained by a simple blood test and a centrifugation treatment to isolate the plasma.
Abundant in platelets (the coagulation cells), the plasma contains a very large number of capillary growth factors. Once released into the scalp, they will stimulate the dormant follicles while stimulating the formation of new blood vessels to allow better irrigation of the scalp.
The nutrients thus brought to the root of each hair will provide strength and hydration. Likewise, these PRP injections into the scalp slow down or stop hair falling out, while promoting the regrowth of follicles. The PRP contains a small fraction of stem cells understood to transform into a hair cell and thus redensify the patient’s hair.
The result: a regenerated scalp and stronger hair. This via a completely natural intervention. It takes 3 sessions spaced every 3 months.
The PRP injection can be combined with other techniques such as hyaluronic acid, collagen inducers or even radio frequency. It then becomes a truly profound treatment that will restructure damaged and refined skin over time. These are the benefits that you can obtain in our Skin Prevent or Skin Restore treatments.
Come as you are, there is no special preparation to do beforehand. The patient is installed in the treatment room.
After careful examination of the areas of the skin or scalp to be injected, the doctor defines the number of tubes required.
A nurse performs a blood test. Then the tube or tubes extracted are centrifuged for 6 minutes to separate the plasma and platelets from the other components of the blood.
A cooling spray is applied over the area so that the treatment is as comfortable as possible. The platelet-rich plasma is then injected directly into the scalp or skin using a fine needle.
A vigorous massage is performed directly after the injection, for optimal distribution of the PRP.
There are no immediate side effects reported.
There may be a feeling of slight tightness, as if the scalp were being stretched, which can last a few minutes.
After treatment, the patient can resume the normal course of their day.
Note that PRP is used in curative medicine to heal and regenerate arthritis tendons and joints.
For optimum results, it is advisable to maintain the area with one session per year. PRP treatment is available from £600.
