PRP IN AESTHETICS
PRP is widely used in aesthetics, where the natural components of your own body are harnessed to promote skin rejuvenation. By stimulating collagen , elastin and cellular growth, as well as by improving local blood supply and hydration, your skin texture, and tone, should gradually improve and lead to a younger looking skin.
HOW DOES PRP WORK?
We use Cellenis PRPTM system where a small sample of blood is taken from your arm exactly like having a routine blood test at your doctor’s. The blood is centrifuged, and ten minutes later, the PRP has been separated from the whole blood and is ready for use. Once on site, the growth factors and other regenerative molecules are released leading to collagen and elastin formation, as well as cellular growth and skin remodelling, resulting in long-lasting skin rejuvenation.

WHAT WILL I FEEL RIGHT AFTER THE TREATMENT?
The sensations vary between each person and treatment. Since PRP is autologous (i.e. it comes from your own blood) adverse reactions are rare.
You may experience slight redness, swelling, mild bruising and pain but these reactions usually pass in a day or two.
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy is the latest medical treatment to cross over into the world of aesthetics.
Long established as a treatment for healing wounds, PRP has also been adopted by sports medicine (Tiger Woods and Kobe Bryant are both reported recipients) and orthopaedic specialities.
Today PRP has found a home in aesthetics. Your own unique growth factors are used to rejuvenate your skin, by “healing” damaged or aging skin , and to encourage hair follicles to continue producing new hair.
Cellenis PRP is safe and effective, versatile, non-allergenic, and offers virtually no downtime or side effects.
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is plasma from your own blood which contains concentrated platelets.
Platelets are a specialized type of blood cell fragment in your own blood which are reservoirs of natural growth factors.
Platelets rupture and release their growth factors when they find themselves out of their normal environment (which is in your blood vessels). Typically this occurs when an injury occurs to the body and blood vessels are ruptured. This could be due to an accidental cut or scrape or a bruise. The released growth factors then get to work building new blood vessels and new tissue
In normal circumstances, growth factors are important in healing and skin regeneration:
By injecting platelets in a Platelet Rich Plasma, we harness this new tissue regeneration ability of the growth factors.
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) assists in recovery from the aging process and importantly, enhances the results of other rejuvenation treatments.
Mesotherapy treatments are often combined with PRP to improve the effectiveness of PRP or enhance overall cosmetic outcome.
PRP therapy stimulates your skin to grow new, younger tissue; however, does not prevent muscle movement or resurface the skin. Thus, most patients see best results when combining PRP treatments with other anti-ageing treatments such as Wrinkle reduction injectables, dermal fillers, resurfacing and/or tightening treatments and skin care products, etc. (Avoid deep peels or resurfacing for 2 weeks after PRP injections.) Generally, you may notice immediate and more significant longer term skin improvements, especially with multiple or ongoing treatments.
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is an innovative and promising approach in regenerative medicine. PRP is the concentration of your own body’s platelets in a small amount of plasma. This self-derived product possesses immense capabilities in terms of tissue regeneration.
Clinical data shows that PRP promotes tissue healing by releasing a large amount of growth factors from the platelets into the treated area.
Each growth factor has a unique role in stimulating biochemical pathways that promote skin repair. Together, they create a synergistic effect for maximal regenerative results.
|Platelet-Derived Growth Factor (PDGF)||Creates cell growth, collagen synthesis, contributing to skin tightness|
|Transforming Growth Factors (TGF)||Stimulates collagen secretion and cell growth|
|Epidermal Growth Factor (EGF)||Stimulates epithelial cell growth and differentiation|
|Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor (VEGF)||Stimulates development of new blood vessels to improve skin nourishment|
|Fibroblast Growth Factor (FGF)||Promotes skin cell growth, collagen secretion and tissue remodelling|
