A huge step forwards in the natural treatment of ageing, Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is a cutting edge solution for the maintenance and stimulation of collagen production.
Angel PRP treatment returns resilience and elasticity to areas of ‘floppy’ skin using plasma from your own circulation system.
Angel PRP is a fast, affordable solution that involves removing a small amount of blood (similar to a blood test), from which plasma is removed, concentrated and activated by calcium chloride using ‘no-touch’ technology. This new enriched or platelet rich plasma is then injected into the treatment area.
The enriched plasma that is injected into your treatment area contains your own growth factors which maintain and stimulate production of new collagen. It is the improved and new collagen beneath your skin that provides the plump, younger appearance in your treated area.
As we age our collagen cells also age. Collagen can be thought of as a collection of coils that maintain bounce and elasticity in your skin. As collagen ages these coils unwind and no longer spring back as well as they used to, leading to the signs of aging you are familiar with.
As PRP maintains and stimulates new collagen development the process is literally restoring the bounce to your skin and in turn creating the appearance of younger youthful skin.
The main difference between PRP and other dermal fillers is the fact the PRP is developed from your very own body – it really is using your body to treat your body. PRP utilises your body’s natural growth and healing factors whereas many other medically prescribed dermal fillers are developed from other properties.
One of the pleasing factors of PRP is that it is a non-allergen material as it is derived from your own body, minimising reactions and side effects. The results of your PRP treatment improve over a period of 6-12 weeks as the PRP activates.
The suitability of PRP in treatment areas varies from patient to patient. When you come for a consultation we will assess if PRP treatment is the best option to help you achieve the natural, fresh results you are looking for. If PRP treatment is not the best option for you we will inform you of the best alternative and will work with you to develop your optimal treatment plan.
If you would like to discuss the option of using PRP as part of your epiclinic® treatment plan please discuss this in your consultation.
