What is PLATELET-RICH PLASMA (PRP)?
Platelet rich plasma injection therapy is a regenerative injection therapy that can stimulate the self-healing ability of your own blood and promote the natural growth of skin tissue. During PRP treatment, when the patient’s own platelet (growth factor) is injected into the damaged tissue, it can promote the process of cell self repair. This involves the process of separating the blood cells in the plasma – the liquid part of the blood.
This process can rejuvenate your skin, increase the production of collagen, and improve loose skin. After treatment, you may feel your skin becomes firm, fresh and bright. It can also be used to increase hair growth and reduce hair loss.
How does PLATELET-RICH PLASMA (PRP) operate?
First, the patient’s blood will be drawn in the same way as the blood test, and then placed in a machine to separate the bleeding cells, platelets and serum. Then, inject the drug into the target area or the body part that wants to rejuvenate as a treatment. Because of this method of operation, this treatment is sometimes called “vampire” or “Dracula” therapy.
Platelets can help the body repair itself by releasing growth factors, stimulating skin cells to generate new tissues, improving skin texture and increasing collagen productivity. This helps the skin to grow healthily and looks more energetic and hydrated.
Growth factors can also stimulate inactive hair follicles to grow new hair to replace lost hair. This helps prevent thinning of hair and baldness of the head. It can promote skin healing. With the proliferation of new skin tissues, your scalp will gradually become healthy.
Benefits of PLATELET-RICH PLASMA (PRP)
This treatment is not only a trend or popular, but also a treatment that can really bring curative effects to skin and hair. In addition to stimulating the growth of new healthy cells in the body and promoting the body’s self-healing process, PRP injection also helps:
Revitalize face and skin
Promotes hair growth
Let tired eyes recover
Improve flabby skin, enhance skin luster and complexion
For the treatment of delicate and difficult parts
Injectable natural medical beauty products
Increase facial skin volume
What problems can it help solve?
1) Active Acne/Acne Scar
Acne is a skin disease that often brings troubles to adults and adolescents. Acne often occurs in adolescence, but it also affects people in other life stages. The pores on the skin are connected with hair follicles and oil glands. When the pores are blocked by accumulated oil, they will become a hotbed for acne. The accumulated oil prevents the sebum from discharging dead skin cells in time, so dirt accumulates under the skin, and acne develops over time. Continuous PRP treatment will help the skin become vigorous, soft and smooth.
2) Wrinkles/fine lines
Wrinkles are an inevitable part of aging, but also because the skin has lost the ability to produce collagen. It can tightly tighten the skin and keep the skin tight and elastic. The lack of collagen means that the skin has lost its elasticity. As a result, wrinkles and folds begin to appear on the skin, and eventually wrinkles and fine lines will form. In the case of insufficient collagen, facial expression can also lead to the formation of wrinkles. At the same time, excessive exposure to the sun and lack of water are also reasons.
Platelets will be injected into the treatment area to stimulate collagen production in the skin. This collagen production helps repair visible wrinkles.
3) Skin dullness
There are many reasons for dull skin, but the main reason is insufficient sleep at night (less than 7 hours). This is almost the normal life of busy urban people. Due to the heavy work schedule and lifestyle, people’s sleep time has been cut, so many office workers have dark skin. As the skin becomes tired, and then forms dark circles, bags under the eyes and wrinkles, these conditions constitute the overall dark skin, making your appearance look haggard and tired. It may also cause dehydration of the skin, leading to the gradual accumulation of dead skin cells. PRP injection can accelerate the generation of collagen, promote the regeneration of skin cells, greatly improve the skin texture, make people look more youthful, and the skin color appears crystal clear.
4) Hair loss/baldness
Generally, we lose 50-100 hairs on average every day, which is not particularly noticeable. However, excessive hair loss may affect the appearance and form bald patches on the head. Hormone changes, specific health conditions and aging are also factors that cause hair loss, but the main reason is genetic factors.
Baldness, also known as alopecia, is a problem that both men and women may face. It can cause a large amount of hair loss. At this time, bald spots will appear on the head, and the hair will become obviously weak, so that a lot of hair will fall off when washing or combing. Scalp infections or thyroid problems can also cause hair loss.
The growth cycle of hair and hair follicle must go through 4 stages. A complete cycle takes about 60 days. In the four stages of the hair growth cycle, only one stage belongs to the active growth period. At this stage, PRP can bring obvious and rapid curative effect to patients. PRP contains a large number of platelets, which can be injected into the scalp of hair loss patients to stimulate hair follicle growth. This can increase the growth of new hair and make it more and thicker.
5) Pigment precipitation/senile plaque/chloasma
When people are excessively exposed to the sun, the skin will try to protect itself by producing melanin to prevent harmful ultraviolet rays from invading. If melanin accumulates in a small area of the skin, it may appear as black, gray or brown spots, forming age spots. Excessive pigment precipitation is also caused by melanin, but it only occurs in a small spot on the skin, and the color is often dark. In addition to exposure to the sun, scratching the skin, hormonal changes, and even the use of drugs may also lead to the formation of the above two skin conditions.
PRP injection will promote skin regeneration at the cellular level by secreting transforming growth factors. These growth factors will immediately trigger the skin regeneration process, and new skin cells can quickly restore the skin to its original appearance, or achieve a better state. According to the patient’s skin condition, generally speaking, 2-3 courses of treatment can not only repair the prominent senile plaque, but also control the pigmentation below the normal level.
6) Pores and skin texture
People with oily skin are more likely to suffer from large pores, because this is caused by excessive accumulation of sebum and dirt. This condition will cause the skin to swell, making the pores appear thicker than before. With the growth of age, the skin will also lose its compactness and elasticity, which will make the skin unable to recover after stretching, and finally lead to the expansion of pores. Overexposure to the sun is also one of the reasons, because the skin will generate more skin cells at the edge of the pores to protect itself from ultraviolet rays. However, pores are enlarged in the process. PRP injection rich in growth factors will trigger the regeneration of new skin cells, thus greatly improving the skin texture and making the appearance beautiful. The new skin will look healthier, crystal clear and shiny.
7) Below the eyes/eyelid
Bags under the eyes and dark circles are common skin conditions that many people over the age of 20 have experienced more or less. Generally speaking, lack of good sleep and exercise is the main factor, and the eating habit of excessive intake of salt also aggravates this problem. The skin under the eyes is gradually extended, eventually forming eye bags and black circles.
Aging is another reason. With the growth of age, the ligaments and muscles that maintain the fat cushion on the face will become weaker. As a result, the skin gradually becomes loose and sagging, which makes the fat under the eyes more conspicuous. The treatment of PRP is to stimulate the treatment area to produce new collagen and elastin. This process will promote the regeneration of healthy skin tissue, gradually achieve natural and real effects, and relevant changes can be seen within 2-3 months after a single course of treatment.
8) Osteoarthritis/Knee pain
With the aging process of the body, the water content of cartilage will increase, leading to the decrease of the protein content supporting cartilage. Over time, joint pain and swelling will occur when the joint is repeated and overused. PRP is a clinical procedure for arthritis treatment, in which a small part of blood is extracted from the patient’s own body. The blood is then placed into a special centrifuge to separate individual haemorrhagic cells, platelets and serum. Then, some of this blood will be re injected into the knee to help relieve and relieve the pain and discomfort caused by arthritis.
In a study in which two groups of patients received different injections, it was proved that PRP knee injection was a more effective treatment than hyaluronic acid injection. Most patients can detect the relevant efficacy within two to four weeks after receiving PRP knee arthritis treatment.
9) Repair vagina
PRP vaginal therapy was used to treat urinary incontinence and overactivity of bladder in the past, but now it has been widely used in the treatment of sexual dysfunction. These are the common problems faced by women of all ages.
PRP vaginal treatment is to increase the production of collagen and elastin by injecting platelet rich plasma into the clitoris or the upper wall of the vagina. These two kinds of human natural proteins can repair tissues and help the body regain vitality, while PRP vaginal treatment is used as a catalyst to induce this mechanism. Because platelets contain healing growth factors, they can be used to strengthen vaginal tissue and revitalize it. In addition, this treatment can also smooth the blood flow of the vagina and increase the secretion of lubricant.
10) Penis enlargement and enhancement
Platelet rich penis therapy, also known as PRP therapy or Priapus shot, is named after a Greek male’s god of reproduction and is one of the latest male enhancement therapies of Premier Clinic. It is believed that this penis enhancement therapy is not only to increase penis size, but also to enhance sexual pleasure and improve erectile function, thereby improving the quality of sexual life. In addition, it can also be used to treat erectile dysfunction, which is a fairly common andrology problem.
P-shots can help increase the blood circulation around the penis, so as to improve the sensitivity of the genitals, make it hard, and then improve the erectile function. Because the blood flow to the penis has increased, the erection is stronger than before, greatly improving the pleasure of sexual life. The whole course of treatment enables the high concentration platelet plasma taken from your body to play its catalytic function, promote the generation of new stem cells and growth factors, and start the process of self repair.
The effect will begin to appear within one week after the completion of p-shot treatment. However, some special cases may take longer to see the effect. This is also one of the key points discussed in the first consultation session, because the effect of Priapus shot penis enhancement may vary from person to person.
