PRP procedure

First your skin is cleaned thoroughly. Then you are asked to lay back comfortably on treatment chair.

PRP is prepared from your own blood. Approximately 20 ml blood is drawn. It is then centrifuged i.e. 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.

After the PRP is prepared it is transferred to syringes with fine needles. PRP is then injected into the skin of the area being treated under local anesthesia. There is no pain.

Androgenic Alopecia : PRP is injected  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 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.

PRP therapy is done in multiple sessions. The number of sessions required depend on the specific condition and type of skin.
