Natural rejuvenation in Calgary with Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)Platelets, clotting and healing components of blood, are also rejuvenation powerhouses. Platelet-rich plasma, or PRP, treatment at Silverado Medical & Aesthetic Clinic in Calgary puts the power of platelets to work for rejuvenation of dark circles and puffiness around the eyes, fine lines and wrinkles, and dull complexions. Since the platelets come from your own body, this natural renewal process carries no risk of allergic reaction.
More about Platelet Rich PlasmaPRP is plasma from your own blood that has a high concentration of platelets. We draw a small sample of your blood, and use an on-site centrifuge to separate its elements. PRP is then injected back into skin to stimulate collagen production and promote development of new cells. Treatment regenerates tissues, tightens skin, and smooths lines.
What PRP can do for you
- Increase volume in the face.
- Reduce lines and wrinkles.
- Soften dark circles under the eyes.
- Improve the overall quality, tone, and texture of your complexion.
The procedurePRP treatment is brief, and well tolerated by most patients. While platelets are being collected, your skin in cleansed and prepped. Then PRP is introduced into problem areas, in a procedure that takes only about 15 minutes. There is no downtime – you may return to regular activities right away, without concern for side effects. Some patients experience mild redness, swelling, or bruising at injection sites, but it typically resolves within a few days.
Dr. Pepple uses the u225 mesogun to inject the PRP into the skin or hair. The mesogun makes the treatment pain-free.
Rejuvenation occurs over the next three to four weeks. Usually, a series of PRP sessions is recommended for optimal improvement. This technique may be used alone, or as part of a comprehensive skin renewal strategy including other cosmetic treatments such as chemical peels, microdermabrasion, microneedling, botulinum toxin, and dermal fillers.
