Also known as an elixir to youthful-looking skin, Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP Therapy) treatment has been creating waves in the beauty industry. It’s not a secret today that everyone’s wish to stop the aging process or slow it down at least. PRP therapy offered at Elements Wellness and Medispa – one of Toronto’s top Medispas – is a fantastic option to fight the signs of aging, including wrinkles and fine lines, loss of volume, and hollowed out areas of the face. Those who are hesitant about artificial injections can opt for PRP therapy with our highly professional medical team at Elements Wellness and Medispa, which provides amazing, natural results.
What is the process of PRP treatment?
The process and experience is very simple. Under the supervision of a medical director Dr. Ali Adibfar, a patient’s own blood is taken from the vein and after separation in the centrifuge, the plasma with the platelets is reinjected into the skin. This plasma is rich in platelets (platelet-rich plasma or PRP) and contains growth factors which stimulate skin regeneration.
How does PRP work?
Once injected into the skin, PRP begins to stimulate the connective tissue. Mild inflammation occurs which leads to the healing cascade. As a result, new collagen begins to form causing tightening and strengthening of the damaged area.
What are the major benefits of PRP treatment?
- Uses your own blood/growth factors thus eliminating allergies
- Improves skin texture and tone
- Helps to erase fine lines and wrinkles
- Increases production of collagen and elastin
How long does it take to see results?
Treatment response varies for every patient, however most people require 1-3 treatments to see optimal results. At Elements Wellness and Medispa we typically recommend that treatments are spaced 3-6 weeks apart. There is no limit to the number of treatments of PRP you can receive and you will begin to see improvement after 3 weeks from the first PRP procedure. Collagen takes 3 months to mature, therefore results will continue to improve over time. This leaves you with beautiful, youthful looking skin.
Who is a perfect candidate for PRP treatment?
Generally, most people are candidates for PRP treatment. However, PRP should be avoided by the following patients: cancer, auto-immune diseases, non-compatible drugs (e.g. warfarin), pregnancy and breastfeeding, poor platelet count and blood disorders. Other than the reasons listed above, every person can get a PRP treatment to restore face shape, improve tone and texture, as well as rejuvenate new and younger tissue.
