White Rock Skin & Laser Clinic has been performing Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) injections since our inception in 2016. The treatment became extremely popular for alopecia (hair loss) and to treat joint pain, in addition to the incredible effect it has in skin revitalization. This process was made popular by the many celebrities that use to it to keep their skin tone and texture at it’s best.
If you’ve got fine lines, wrinkles, acne scarring, dark circles under the eyes, or if your skin is really just losing it’s luster, this could be the treatment for you. And not just the face! PRP works beautifully on the neck, hands and decolletage! Don’t forget that ALL these areas are usually on display and also get sun damaged so be sure you’re looking at the big picture!
What is even better for skin rejuvenation is combining the PRP with hyaluronic acid to reap the short and long term benefits of both treatments! The results are even more outstanding than PRP alone. The combination is then injected with the use of a mesotherapy injector to evenly distribute the mixture across the treatment area. The procedure is well-tolerated and LOVED by our clients.
Curious what others have to say? Below we are sharing a study from the Department of Plastic Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgery, Balikesir University, Balikesir, Turkey. The results speak for themselves!
Platelet-rich plasma and hyaluronic acid - an efficient biostimulation method for face rejuvenation.
Cosmetic applications of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) are new, and reports are scarce and dispersed in the literature. There are a variety of commercially available kits and injection techniques, and the number and intervals of injections vary. New investigations should focus on developing a standardized procedure for PRP preparation and application methods to augment its efficacy and potency.
In this report, we aim to provide data and commentary to assist and add to current guidelines.
A series of 94 female patients with varying degrees of facial aging signs were treated with PRP and hyaluronic acid (HA). Mean age was 53.0 ± 5.6. The mean injection number was 3.6 ± 2.0. Platelet-poor and platelet- rich plasma parts were mixed with 0.5 cc %3.5 hyaluronic acid and 0.5 cc procaine and injected with a 30G, 13-mm needle into deep dermis and hypodermis. Patients were asked to rate their personal satisfaction with their skin texture, pigmentation, and sagging. In addition, the overall results were rated by three independent physicians and the patients themselves. The outcomes were peer-reviewed, and correlations between the degree of the aesthetic scores and the number of injections were explored.
There was a statistically significant difference in general appearance, skin firmness-sagging and skin texture according to the patients’ before and after applications of PRP. A statistically significant correlation was found between the number of injections and overall satisfaction.
Compared to the baseline, the PRP and HA injections provided clinically visible and statistically significant improvement on facial skin. The improvements were more remarkable as the injection numbers increased.
