Looking for a natural way to rejuvenate your look? A PRP injection treatment from Toronto's Kingsway Dermatology may be just what you're looking for to soften fine lines and wrinkles on your face, neck and chest.
The 'Vampire Facelift' has been made popular by reality T.V. and Hollywood stars but using your own blood plasma to freshen your face isn't reserved for the rich and famous. The cosmetic treatment known as PRP is available at Kingsway Dermatology and Cosmetic Centre in Toronto.
PRP stands for Platelet-Rich Plasma and it offers a more natural solution to treating wrinkles and improving texture of skin on your face. After withdrawing a small amount of blood, healing platelets from your own blood are put back into the skin via a PRP injection to naturally promote the growth of new tissue and stimulate collagen production. As your body naturally responds to the treatment, you will see improvement in your skin's texture and tone.

PRP injection treatments are ideal for areas on the face, neck and chest to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. The most popular sites for the treatment include:
The length of your PRP injection session will depend on the location or locations to be treated, as well as other factors. In general, you can expect PRP injections at the Toronto area's Kingsway Dermatology to take approximately 45 minutes to an a hour.
The rejuvenating results of a PRP treatment are long lasting. The first effects are noticeable within a few weeks, and the benefits of PRP injection are long lasting. Many patients choose to do a booster session once or twice a year to achieve continued benefits, and stop the clock on aging skin.
The injection process involves three main steps:
First, a small amount of blood is drawn, just like when a standard blood test is done. Either one or two small vials of blood will be collected, depending on the size of the areas to be treated.
Next, your dermatologist will spin the blood in a centrifuge to extract the platelets, an element of your blood that is rich in growth factors.
Finally, your dermatologist will take the platelet-rich plasma and inject it back into the treatment area. As the injections contain your own body's natural growth factor, your body responds to them naturally, renewing the cells and stimulating collagen production in the treated areas. This new collagen will fill out wrinkles and fine lines to create a smoother, healthy and youthful look.
PRP injections are a popular choice with people seeking a natural solution to their cosmetic dermatology needs.
