Platelet Rich Plasma: Skin Rejuvenation
The patient’s own blood is drawn, centrifuged and separated, and then the platelet-rich plasma is injected into the patient’s face. Injections are made into strategic areas to encourage skin healing and renewal through new collagen production and fresh skin cells full of human growth factors.
At Mediworks we do the Vampire Facial treatment using the U225 Mesotherapy injector. Specifically, the Vampire Facial is used to treat:
- Fine lines and wrinkles; The natural aging of your skin is due to an imbalance between the rate of destruction and renewal of cells and collagen
- Circles, bags and discolouration around eyes
- Vertical lip lines
- Nasolabial folds
- Active acne and acne scars
- Stretch scars
- Back of hands
- Epidermal thinning and volume loss in the face, neck, and décolleté
This procedure is not recommended for those with blood-related conditions, anemia, or blood or bone cancers. Patients who take blood thinning medication or non-steroidal anti-inflammatories (NSAIDs) should discontinue their medication for a few weeks prior to their treatment and for a few days afterwards according to physician instructions.
Recovery after PRP therapy
The Vampire Facial requires little recovery time. There may be redness and some tenderness on the first day that appears much like sunburn. Occasionally some bruising may occur. The initial redness will subside on the second day. By the third day, the swelling should diminish. The sandpaper texture to the skin may persist for up to a week.
Though you may notice these changes, you will not likely have any significant downtime as a result of these symptoms. You can go back to your regular daily activities after your appointment and, with a light make-up application, no one will be the wiser about your procedure.
Results of PRP Therapy: What can I expect?
Within a few days patients begin to see noticeable results. Within 2 to 3 months, when the greatest benefit is seen, individuals report fully refreshed skin that looks and feels more youthful. These results can last between 1 to 2 years afterwards depending on the individual. We recommend a series of 3 treatments 4 weeks apart for optimal results.
Platelet Rich Plasma: Hair Regrowth
There are many therapeutic options when it comes to recouping hair loss. Many of these methods are either invasive, yield unnatural looking results, or both. At Mediworks Rejuvenation Centre, we utilize Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) to initiate hair regeneration in men and women of all ages facing unwanted hair loss. It can also provide help for those suffering from hypotrichosis of facial hair, alopecia, and hair loss that is the result of an iron deficiency or as a side effect of medication.
The first step in your PRP hair regrowth treatment is to take a blood sample that will undergo a specialized process to create PRP. Your PRP is then combined with specific nutrients and homeopathic ingredients and administered via a series of injections to the desired treatment area. PRP hair regrowth can be achieved over the entire scalp, beard area, or eyebrows.
Each PRP hair regrowth treatment takes about an hour to complete. We typically recommend 3 successive treatments spaced about 4 weeks apart. After your treatment, you may see new hair growth in as few as 2 months. However, most people see their best results between 4 and 8 months post-treatment. Previous patients who have undergone the suggested number of treatments have maintained results for up to 2 years without the need for any additional sessions.
Prior to the introduction of PRP regrowth procedures, people suffering from hair loss had very few effective, non-surgical options. PRP therapy is a new method that can help solve the stress and trauma of hair loss for men and women of all ages who are suffering from many different types of hair loss, making it an excellent option for those who wish to regrow their hair on their head or even their face. If you are looking to increase your confidence, Mediworks Rejuvenation Centre would be proud to help you achieve the results you are looking for through Platelet Rich Plasma therapy for hair regrowth.
Platelet Rich Plasma: Orthopedic Care
If you are suffering from chronic joint pain, Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy may be able to help. PRP therapy utilizes your own blood to target inflammation in your body and help repair damaged soft tissue. PRP treatment for orthopedic concerns is quick, effective, minimally evasive, and essentially painless.
Your body has the incredible ability to heal itself, and PRP therapy helps unlock that ability, increase its efficacy, and speed up the process. Platelet Rich Plasma is a viscous, golden-colored material created from your own blood. It is injected into the desired area of repair and stimulates the body’s natural reparative abilities with little to no pain or downtime. At Mediworks Rejuvenation Centre, we typically recommend 2-3 treatments every 4 weeks, depending on the severity of the injury.
