PRP Antiaging in Delhi
PRP is not all that new – platelet rich plasma injections have been around for decades, helping athletes to heal sports related injuries (they’re particularly helpful at healing tendon damage) but increasingly the benefits of PRP are being used in beauty.
The platelet rich plasma that is injected is a concentrated formula of your own platelets which makes it rich in growth factors. Such growth factors are needed to repair the body, and come in handy too when trying to fight the signs of ageing.
When going for a PRP treatment the practitioner will take some blood from you – imagine going for a beauty blood test – then that blood is processed using a mechanical device to seperate the platelets from the rest of the blood making the concentration of platelets three to four times the normal level.
The processing part of the treatment doesn’t take long – on average 20 minutes, as the different elements are divided – red blood cells, white blood cells, platelets etc, then the clear platelet rich plasm
If we already have blood in our bodies, you might ask what is the benefit of reinjecting it? It could all be seen as rather pointless – if it wasn’t for the fact that processing the blood increases the levels of platelets far beyond their normal concentration to boost the skin’s ability to rejuvenate.
Mr Golchin says: “When platelets are activated in the body, they release healing proteins called growth factors. These growth factors have a range of responsibilities, a predominant feature of which is their ability to accelerate tissue repair and improve wound healing.”
When PRP is injected into the skin, the injection entry point causes a small wound which activates the platelets and lets them get to work repairing the tissue in that area. (Hence Kim Kardashian’s bloody looking face).
Effectively PRP is encouraging your body to use it’s own processes but more effectively in the places that are starting to need a bit of extra help.
