P.R.P Overview

Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) is a concentrate of platelet-rich plasma protein derived from whole blood, centrifuged to remove red blood cells. It is also known as 'Vampire Face Lift'. It has a high concentration of growth factors, and has been used to encourage a brisk healing response across several specialties, in particular dentistry, orthopedics and dermatology.

PRP contains several different growth factors and other cytokines that can stimulate healing of soft tissue and joints. In cosmetology PRP is mainly used for hair regrowth in androgenic alopecia and for facial rejuvenation.

PRP is prepared from patient's own blood. Approximately 20ml blood is drawn. It is then centrifuged--spun at a high speed for 10 to 15 minutes. Centrifugation separates the blood into blood cells, and plasma fraction. The plasma is further processed to obtain PRP.

PRP therapy is performed in our clinic. It's an outpatient procedure, meaning there's no overnight stay. First your skin is cleaned thoroughly. Then you are asked to lay back comfortably on treatment chair. Approximately 20 ml blood is drawn to prepare PRP. After the PRP is repaired it is transferred to syringes with fine needles. PRP is then injected into the skin of area being treated.

Androgenic Alopecia : PRP injections are placed at regular intervals in the scalp in areas of hair loss in order to stimulate hair growth.

Facial rejuvenation : PRP is injected in the skin of face as mesotherapy to stimulate the formation of collagen. Facial Rejuvenation with PRP injections is popularly called ‘Vampire Face Lift’. The new collagen formation makes the skin tight, smooth and reduces fine wrinkles.

Most injections are not painful as they are injected after cooling the skin with cold packs and using vibrator instrument to dull the pain. For pain sensitive individuals PRP injections are given after anesthetizing the area with topical anesthetic cream in case of facial treatment. For hair fall treatment PRP injections are placed after anesthetizing the scalp skin with local anesthetic injections.

The platelet and growth factors in PRP stimulate collagen formation. Collagen formation and collagen maturation takes around a month. Results are appreciable from 2 to 3 months onwards.
