During PRP treatment, a small amount of blood is drawn from your arm into a sterile tube. Local anesthetic is applied to the treatment area to minimize the discomfort during the procedure. The tube containing your blood is then processed in a centrifuge and spun to separate the plasma and platelets from the other blood components. At Healthy Look Aesthetic, we use two-step processing to ensure the plasma that we inject is abundant in growth factors to deliver a desirable result. The platelet-rich plasma is then skilfully injected into the affected area to promote cellular regeneration. The injection targets the lower layer of the skin, hence, we also use dermapen to treat the upper layer to achieve a better result.
After the PRP treatment, you will experience a little downtime, depending on your skin concern & target. Generally speaking, the downtime for skin rejuvenation takes approximately 3 days, while the downtime for the acne scar is longer, around 5-7 days. It is due to the deeper depth of the dermapen for acne scar treatment.
After the procedure, it is advisable to avoid intense sun exposure such as sunbathing, swimming in the noon, or going to the beach. We also recommend you to apply lots of sunscreen and put physical protection if possible.
The production of collagen-induced by the PRP will start noticeable after your skin is fully healed. Full collagen regeneration takes up to three months. Reduction in hair loss is noticeable within 8 weeks. You can notice your skin becomes more rejuvenated and smoother even after the first treatment, but a course of 3 treatments is highly recommended to see the maximum benefits of this pioneering modality. Each set of treatments is spaced approximately 4-6 weeks apart. Please be informed that the result will vary from person to person. During the personal consultation, our doctor will discuss your concern, medical history, and an expected result that could be achieved.
PRP result also depends on your plasma’s quality, a healthy life style will lead to a better result. We suggest you eat lots of fiber, limit your sugar intake & junk food, and get enough sleep
