Regenerate healthy new skin using your own cells
PRP is an autologous treatment, meaning it uses your own natural cells from your blood. Saphira PRP has additional bio stimulating properties which result in a superior result compared to other PRP treatment systems. Because PRP uses your own blood supply there is no risk of allergy or rejection of the treatment. This treatment has long been used to help decrease healing times for orthopaedic surgeries and leg ulcers and is now widely used for cosmetic skin regeneration purposes.
The high concentration of growth factors contained in PRP, is also secreted naturally when your body is wounded. By injecting the isolated platelets into the dermis of the skin, the recognition of this will stimulate a wound healing response. This wound healing response will initiate new collagen, which improves texture and elasticity of skin. Extra benefits include cell renewal, increased blood flow and oxygen supply, improvement of pigmentation and rapid healing of scars and wounds. Reports indicate an improvement in the longevity of other tissue stimulating treatments such as laser, Intense Pulsed Light, Thermage, when they are teamed with PRP treatments.
PRP Therapy is effective for fine wrinkles around the eyes, nasolabial grooves, wrinkles on the lips, wrinkles on the forehead, wrinkles on the neck, acne marks, under eye bags, dark circles under the eyes, and loose and sagging skin.
How is the PRP treatment performed?
Depending on the area treated, about 16 ml of blood is collected from your fore-arm and placed in a centrifuge for 10 minutes. The spinning Centrifugation separates the red blood cells from the plasma and platelets. The platelets in the plasma are now enriched 2 – 5 times compared to the native concentration in blood.
Platelet enriched plasma contains several million more platelets resulting in more growth factor release and more stem cell attraction compared to the normal wound healing process.
The whole procedure is performed in less than one hour and because no external wound is created, you can return to normal activity "immediately".
What results can I expect from the treatment?
What is fantastic about this method of volumising and supporting loose and sagging skin is that it occurs naturally, so you could expect to get a look that resembles your younger self, without the sometimes artificial look of ‘placed fillers’.
At Saphira we recommend around three treatments spaced one month apart.
This is a great treatment for clients who want to invest in tissue stimulating treatments for result longevity and a more natural facial regeneration. Saphira PRP and other tissue stimulating treatments, encourage rapid cell reproduction and get your body working for you in the laying down of resilient collagen creating a more natural looking volume.
