FACE AND BODY REJUVENATION

Appealing to more patients who seek a natural method of slowing the ageing process focuses on PRP (Platelet-Rich Plasma) is a tolerable and safe procedure. PRP is fully utilised in many countries such as the UK, Japan, Asia, and Europe to slow and rejuvenate the ageing of the face and body.

  • Safe and physiologically active

  • Provides quick and simple preparation

  • All procedures are done on the premises using a Regen approved TGA PRP Harvesting system

  • No products are taken off the premises

  • Is able to be used in various locations for dermal rejuvenation

Backed by science, PRP augments and regenerates the soft and hard tissue, this obtains its source from concentrated platelet-rich blood. With the help of blood clotting set aside, platelets provide growth release factors that stimulate cells for the regeneration of new tissues in the human body so it may repair itself. Through a process known as Centrifugation, PRP can be separated from the blood with a simple process. Creating a danger-free zone of disease transmission, only your own plasma is utilised to induce a quicker healing process of the body.

The consistency of wrinkle rejuvenation and other facial ageing in those who have a modest grade of chronological or photo ageing have been represented in many case studies across England, Asia, South Africa, Japan, and Europe. There is an importance in selecting patients for this process, and skin diseases are excluded. Improvement of tone and skin texture has been noticeable within three weeks, followed by an ongoing change of improvements for the following few months depending on patient health. As with all skin treatments, enhancement can be delivered through the appropriate cosmeceuticals. Platelets have various functions and contain important growth factors responsible for:

 

  • Increasing collagen production
  • Tissue regeneration and rejuvenation
  • Recruiting other cells to the site of injury
  • Inducing cell differentiation
  • Initiating vascular in-growth
  • Extra cellular matrix formation
  • Bone-mineralisation
  • Non-Allergenic

 

Biological Glue: Assists in tissue adhesion, especially with bone grafts, skin flaps and trauma.
It is an “own body” physiological product rather than human donor or animal derived products.
All of these steps are vital for the regeneration of collagen and natural healing.

A blood sample is taken prior to treatment, 8ml to 32ml is extracted from the patient and quickly placed in a centrifuge for five to nine minutes. When the centrifugation is finished, the plasma is separated into three layers:

  • Platelet

  • Red blood cells

  • The ‘buffy coat’, a combination of white blood cells and platelets from the red blood cells.

Rich platelets are then extracted from the plasma gel base an injected into the fat layer or deep dermis of the skin. The platelets slowly increase the collagen that can lead to increased skin thickness and healthier skin.

For two tubes the procedure takes approx. 45 minutes to 1 hour.

  • The Peri Orbital Rim – Around the eyes
  • Cheeks
  • Mid face
  • Jaw line and sub malar
  • Thinning skin on the neck
  • Décolletage
  • Back of hands

 

Additional areas include the elbows, knees, post baby tummy and upper arms. Procedures may be combined with skin needling and lasers at the time of surgery.

Minimal: Patents should expect swelling, redness, bruising and possibly headaches for the initial 12-24 hours.


Modest: Some patients could become faint and there could be a noticeable bruise at the venapuncture location for 2-3 days.

Enhanced results from Cosmeceutical and Light therapies Improved hydration is noticeable in 2-3 weeks with improved skin texture gradually noticeable in the first few months. Severe scarring may not respond to treatments.


Advanced wrinkles are not reversible and minimal improvement is common for wrinkles caused from tobacco and alcohol use.

 

Continuing PRP treatments are common and safe. PRP-ACR is well tolerated and effective, but it is important to select patients carefully if predictable outcomes are expected.

If you are found suitable for this treatment, you should do the following:

 

  • Remain hydrated in the 48 hours prior to the procedure
  • Reduce caffeine and alcohol intake
  • Lower fat intake
  • Eliminate use of green tea, Omegas and other supplements that may increase bruising

HAIR REJUVENATION

PRP is also an extremely effective treatment to naturally stimulate hair follicle growth.

 

Women and men all over the world have suffered from thinning hair or complete hair loss for centuries. There are multiple treatment modalities for these various types of hair loss that are expensive, time-consuming and sometimes painful.

 

Unlike other treatment options, PRP naturally works with your body without the use of medications, hormones or implants.

 

At Amirova we understand that hair loss can be an extremely sensitive topic so whether you’re experiencing overall thinning or balding patches, book in a consultation with our friendly and experienced team to discuss your situation and a treatment plan.

PRP (Platelet-rich plasma) for hair loss treatment at Amirova Cosmetic Clinic requires that each patient has a couple of blood vials drawn before the treatment. After this blood is taken, we put the vials through a few sets of revolutions in the centrifuge machine that will separate the layer of red blood cells from the required layer of viable blood plasma. This process takes about 15- 20 minutes, and plasma is then placed into a small insulin syringe for scalp treatment. An hour before any PRP for hair loss is applied, patients have a thin layer of anaesthetic added to the scalp to decrease any discomfort from injection during the treatment.

 

Once the anaesthetic has set into the scalp, we inject the areas that we would like to see hair growth in lines, using several injections. The injection process can take an hour or so to complete, depending on the size of the area we intend to treat. Every patient at Amirova Cosmetic Clinic says the process is comfortable and relatively quick. After these injections, a variety of five different growth factors will call for increased circulation and work with the skin and hair follicles to elongate these hair shafts for fuller, thicker, healthy hair.

During your consultation for platelet-rich plasma and hair loss treatment, we will create a custom treatment plan for you based on your treatment areas and desired results. Most patients require three treatments that span four to six weeks apart to start. After which, we require yearly or bi-annual treatments to maintain steady hair growth. Compared to the many other treatment methods out there for hair loss, these PRP treatments are cost effective and have the best-proven results based on patient trials.

While some areas may become tender, swollen or bruised with injections into the scalp, there are no other issues present and you can return to your daily activities the next day. If you experience any other concerning skin irritation, please call Amirova Cosmetic Clinic and speak to our treatment specialists so we can schedule for an immediate follow-up.

We encourage patients to consider PRP for hair loss in the first stages of hair loss when first hair begins to thin. Platelet-rich plasma treatments are not recommended for those patients that have significant scarring. If you’re unsure of the level of hair loss, you schedule your consultation as soon as possible.
