PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) treatment

 

Platelet-rich-Plasma (PRP) therapy is a completely natural method for skin rejuvenation and repair based on using your own plasmato inject in the treated areas of the skin.  Is this the true fountain of youth? Your skin will regenerate and signs of aging will be reversed, pigment damage, lines, loose skin, and scars will lessen or completely vanish. This procedure has been talked about much in the media and is frequently also being referred to as the “Vampire” or the “Dracula” facelift. It is based on harnessing the natural healing power of your own blood’s plasma – hence the “vampire” or the “dracula” lift. The platelets in our blood contain many “growth factors”. These are proteins that promote the healing of damaged skin, including healing of aged skin. Following the injection, the platelets release these proteins (referred to as growth factors),which in turn trigger surrounding cells to proliferate and to repair damage; as a result the skin volume increases and the skin becomes firmer, radiant and rejuvenated.

PRP will improve many areas of the body:

  • the face, especially around the eyes, mouth and nose, the jowls
  • the back of your hands
  • scars, including surgical scars, acne scars
  • the neck
  • stretch marks
  • for hair growth in baldness (men and women)

Treatment FAQ’s

Are PRP treatments safe for me?

Our clients safety is our number one concern at Light Touch Laser Med Spa. All treatments and devices are Health Canada approved.  Our current PRP medical devise is from Switzerland, and is one of the top quality devices in today’s marketplace.  As the treatment involves the usage of your own blood, and the treatment takes place within the same room, you can be assured this is a closed system, with little risk to you. Our staff are well trained in this procedure, and we are currently training other nurses in our expertise, to ensure our teachings and learnings are utilized within the Mississauga, Oakville and Waterloo region.

How many treatments will I need?

Treat your skin as if it was your hair and seek PRP treatments regularly. If you’re needing PRP treatments to help with hair thinning and hair loss, we suggest 3 treatments, in sequence, followed by a maintenance treatment every few months to maintain the health of your scalp.

Will I experience any difficulties healing after treatment?

This procedure has no contraindications, and is very well tolerated by all clients. For our skin care clients, they may return to work the following day. Clients having the PRP hair growth treatments, may return to regular business once they’ve washed their hair the following day. Our skin care clients may experience some mild bruising, although only about 10% of our clients experience this.  The PRP treatment for hair growth will not be your best hair day, as the nurse will be injecting the scalp and using antiseptics in your hair which causes your hair to be slightly array.  For the first 48 hours after treatment, you should keep the area clean and proceed as normal with your regular cleansing and maintenance of skin and hair.  We suggest you refrain however from any usage of AHA or BHA acid products for the first few days to avoid any irritation of skin.

What are treatment costs?

The price of our PRP treatment varies according to type of treatment purchased for hair or skin. Packages are available, and it is suggested you take advantage of our free consults to have all your questions answered and pricing details provided. Contact us today to get started.
