What is PRP?
The procedure involves drawing some of your blood (like in a blood test) centrifuging it (spinning it very fast for about 8 minutes) so that it separates into the red blood cells and the plasma parts. The rich platelets are then extracted and injected into your skin. This is done under topical local anaesthesia (a gel or cream is applied to your skin to numb it for the injecting)
PRP for Neck Treatment
Neck Treatment can be done most effectively with Platelet-Rich Plasma, or PRP. The skin on the neck is very sensitive and different from the face and can be damaged very easily. Because PRP uses your own platelets to rejuvenate the skin there is no risk of damaging it with overly aggressive treatments.
Having regular Neck treatments with PRP leads to a reduction in fine lines, less drooping, and a decrease of pigment. With successive treatments, most people can see a dramatic improvement in their Neck area. Loaded with growth factors that regrow tissue and regrow blood vessels, leading to more nutrients to the skin, and stem cells that work toward taking your skin back to its original state, PRP can only make your skin better.
It does take 3-6 months to regrow collagen and elastin so we know that it takes time for results to happen. The first thing you may notice is a new glow to your skin, followed by a decrease of pigment. Over time you will see the lift and a decrease of wrinkles to the skin of your Neck.
More Information About PRP Treatment
It is for people between the ages of 30 and 80.
Side Effects are minimal, expect minimal swelling, bruising, and redness for 12-24 hours, a bruise at the injection site may be visible for 2-3 days. Bruising is not a bad thing after any injecting procedure as bruising drives collagen to the area so is a good thing in the long run.
Light rolling and cosmeceuticals can enhance results.
Advanced wrinkling cannot be reversed and minimal improvement is predictable in persons with drug, alcohol, and tobacco usage.
