Liquid gold: An introduction to PRP

PRP in Lancashire: As the ageing process starts to take its toll, it can affect our appearance in many ways. Both men and women can begin to experience hair loss (male and female pattern baldness) as well as skin ageing, dehydration and loss of skin hydration in areas of the face such as the tear troughs, temples and cheeks. Most of us want to retain a youthful appearance for as long as possible but many would prefer not to take a surgical route, and many are nervous of synthetic injectable substances for whatever reason.

At CAREFORSKIN Aesthtetics in Clitheroe, we offer a non-surgical, injectable treatment which we call ‘liquid gold’ since the substance used is natural and part of you! The treatment is called Platelet-Rich-Plasma therapy (PRP).

What is PRP?

‘Liquid gold’ PRP therapy uses specially-selected elements of your own blood for the treatment. Blood is taken from your arm via a syringe and is separated in a specially designed centrifuge to obtain the platelet-rich-plasma which contains stem cells and growth factors. The PRP is then injected back into the area of concern, whether this is the hair follicles for hair restoration or areas of the face or body for skin rejuvenation.

Growth factors and plasma cells help to stimulate hair growth and damaged areas of the skin, replenishing and encouraging the production of collagen and cell renewal and repair.

PRP isn’t a new discovery and originated in medical practice, primarily for wound healing. Like many aesthetic treatments that come from medicine, discoveries were made while treating athletes, sportspeople and those with damage to the joints.

It’s proving successful at treating the following skin and hair concerns:

  • Lines, wrinkles and ageing skin.
  • Acne scars.
  • Sun damage, age spots and hyperpigmentation.
  • Uneven skin tone and texture.
  • The O-Shot and P-Shot
  • Dark under-eye circles (tear trough)
  • Dull and dehydrated skin.
  • Hair loss in both men and women.

Are PRP treatments safe?

PRP is considered very safe as it is autologous; the substance is derived from your own blood cells. Therefore, any side-effects or adverse reactions are extremely rare. After the treatment, you might experience some swelling, bruising or soreness where the injections have been administered, but these symptoms usually pass in a day or two.

Platelet-rich Plasma Results

Results from PRP can take between 6 and 12 weeks but can last up to 18 months and can offer permanent results when used for hair restoration. However, occasional top-up sessions might be required to maintain optimum results.

Liquid gold PRP is becoming the ‘go to’ choice for those who are looking for a more long-term solution to their skin and hair loss concerns but wish to take a natural approach to aesthetic or cosmetic treatments.
