This video demonstrates the technique used to treat fine lines and wrinkles with platelet-rich plasma.
STEP BY STEP PROTOCOL
FACE ASSESSMENT AND PREPARATION
After reviewing your medical questionnaire, your treating professional will conduct your full assessment, starting with pictures taken from different angles and visual analysis. He will prepare your face by disinfecting it with compresses and an alcohol solution. This will eliminate all impurities and sebum to promote better penetration of the PRP.
Your treating professional will take a blood sample, usually from a vein located in the cubital fossa. It is important to be well hydrated in order to facilitate this step. Next, the collection tube will be installed in the centrifuge and in just a few minutes, the platelet-rich plasma will be separated from the blood and ready for your treatment.
INJECTION OF THE PLATELET-RICH PLASMA
The syringe containing your PRP will then be installed on the injection gun. The desired injection depth will be adjusted as well as the pressure to get the liquid out of the syringe. Your professional will perform as many injections as possible on the area to be treated. Do not worry; the procedure will be tolerable and does not require anesthesia.
CREAM APPLICATION AND POST-TREATMENT INSTRUCTIONS
The session will end by letting the PRP dry for a few minutes, then applying a moisturizer with sun protection. Your professional will explain the post-treatment instructions and give you a written copy to take home. In order to achieve the desired results, your professional will suggest a number of treatments at specific intervals. We will advise you to make your next appointment in advance in order to be able to book the time slot that suits you best.
