Platelet Rich Plasma Treatment to Remove Age Spots
What is PRP?
Platelet-rich plasma therapy (also referred to as ‘Dracula’ or ‘Vampire’ therapy), calls for the drawing of blood from your body. Fret not, only a small amount – similar to that required for a blood test – is necessary.
Following extraction, collected blood is placed in a machine which sets apart platelets and blood cells, after which, it is mixed with a serum and re-injected into the body where age spots are apparent.
This procedure works by way of triggering the production of new skin cells and collagen – helping the skin naturally grow back healthier than it was before, making it smoother in texture and more vibrant in appearance. 2-3 treatments over the course of 4-6 weeks are required, depending on your skin and what your doctor advises.
Recovery & Results
Within 3 weeks of this treatment, you should be able to notice results: diminished age spots and more toned skin on targeted areas. Results can last for up to 18 months, after which additional treatments may be necessary.
As this procedure makes use of your own blood, it is far safer than other methods which rely on chemicals to achieve results. You can, however, expect some minor bruising and swelling following treatment, but this will subside within a week.
