Looking for a natural way to rejuvenate your look? Platelet Rich Plasma treatments from Toronto’s Kingsway Dermatology may be just what you’re looking for. Natural treatment is used to soften fine lines and wrinkles on your face, neck, and chest. It can even be used in areas around the knees and elbows to improve skin quality.
Due to it’s use in a variety of medical applications, this Health Canada approved therapy has shown marked improvement in the overall health of the skin by providing the slow release of much needed growth factors and enzymes.
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 natural solution to treating wrinkles and improving the 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 delivery system to naturally promote the growth of new tissue and stimulate collagen production. Platelets have the ability to release growth factors, small molecules that initiate the process of cellular regeneration. As your body naturally responds to the treatment, you will see improvement in your skin’s texture and tone.
What Areas Can Be Treated with PRP in Toronto?
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:
- Around the eyes
- Around the mouth
- The cheeks
- Neck and décolletage of the chest
- Scalp for hair retention and growth
The length of your PRP therapy session will depend on the location or locations to be treated, as well as other factors. In general, you can expect PRP therapies at the Toronto area’s Kingsway Dermatology to take approximately 45 minutes to an a hour.
The first effects are noticeable within a few weeks, and the rejuvenating benefits of multiple PRP therapy 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.
PRP Therapy Details
The 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, the blood is placed in a centrifuge to extract the platelets, an element of your blood that is rich in growth factors.
Finally, the platelet-rich plasma will be injected back into the treatment areas so 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 Therapy is a popular choice with people seeking a natural solution to their cosmetic dermatology needs.
