How does platelet-rich plasma work?
In plasma injection, the growth factors present in it work in conjunction with micro-needling or micro-exfoliation to stimulate collagen production, collagen is a major protein that makes up the connective tissues in the body. By encouraging the body to produce collagen and generate healthy skin cells, plasma is said to improve skin tone, texture and fine lines.
The Freshness Center for Dermatology, Laser and Aesthetics in Hurghada offers plasma facial treatments, and the usual treatment usually includes three main steps:
Before doing the procedure
Before your facial treatment can begin, your doctor will first need to isolate the plasma from your blood. Using a needle, he or she will draw a small amount of blood from your arm. He will then spin the blood sample in a centrifuge to help separate the platelet-rich plasma from the rest of the blood.
If your treatment includes the use of fine needles or microdermabrasion, your doctor will also apply a local anesthetic at this time.
Once the anesthetic takes effect, your doctor will use a special roller or device to lance the skin. This stimulates collagen production and creates tiny holes to allow the plasma to penetrate the skin.
during the procedure
Finally, the doctor will apply plasma therapy to the treatment area and massage it into the skin.
