Platelet-Rich Plasma Skin Rejuvenation Treatment
Are you looking for a more natural way to both look great and feel great? Do you wish you could reduce wrinkles or fine lines, acne and scars, sun damage, without complicated surgical procedures or chemical treatments? If you answered yes to any of these, then PRP treatment might be the right option for you.
Platelet-Rich Plasma skin rejuvenation( "vampire facelift") or PRP treatment for short, is a skincare solution that works by using your body’s natural healing properties to help restore your skin. Originally developed to treat sports-related injuries more quickly, it was soon found to have practical cosmetic applications as well. By activating healing factors in your cells to regenerate soft tissue, it can give your skin a fuller, healthier look.
OUR PRP TREATMENT
Platelets are cells in your blood that assist the healing process by forming blood clots when they detect an injury. We begin the Platelet-Rich Plasma skin rejuvenation process by drawing blood. We then place your drawn blood in a centrifuge to separate platelets and blood plasma from red blood cells. Next we extract the now Platelet-Rich Plasma, leaving the red blood cells behind, and the PRP treatment is ready to begin.
Once activated, we inject the plasma serum into the skin of the treatment area. This mimics an injury response in your body, as the platelets generate a fibrin mesh, which in turn activates healing and growth factors in your body. The typical result? Your body’s own healing system works to take years off of your appearance using its own natural, home-grown ingredients.
We use Elite PRP medical kit in combination with your own natural platelets to help rejuvenate your skin and restore a fuller healthier look. This Kit is Made in Canada and Health Canada Approved.
The entire process can take as little as 45 minutes to an hour from start to finish. As your body produces natural collagen in the affected area, you can begin to see noticeable results from PRP treatment within the first 6 weeks. For good and radiant results, a person needs 3 Treatments, 4-6 weeks apart. The desired results will continue to be visible for at least 6- 18 months.

PRP HAIR LOSS TREATMENT
Are you looking to slow the speed of hair loss? Do you wish your hair had more volume? Is your hair thinning or are you self-conscious about a bald spot? Look no further – PRP treatment for hair loss may be the right option for you.
Autologous Platelet-Rich Plasma (A-PRP®) treatments are a safe and effective procedure to restore hair quality and encourage hair growth for hair loss, hair thinning, and pattern baldness for men and women. A-PRP® uses the regenerative and healing properties of your own blood’s plasma and platelets to initiate the process of cellular regeneration in hair and stimulate collagen production.
Below is the list of some of the Causes of Hair loss:
*Stress & Poor Diet
*Autoimmune Diseases- e.g Vitiligo and Thyroiditis
How does PRP therapy work? Our Physician isolates the platelets from a small sample of your blood. Upon preparation, the sample is administered into the scalp using a thin, painless needle. The platelets release growth factors locally in the scalp, sending small messenger molecules to help initiate the process of cellular regeneration.
PRP therapy stimulates the hair bulb environment, setting into motion a process that naturally strengthens hair. PRP therapy increases blood supply and enhances hair follicle cell proliferation. The result? Stronger, healthier hair. PRP treatments use your body’s natural healing properties to help restore strength and volume to thinning or balding hair in men and women alike.
PRP therapy has proven effective for male and female clients with initial to intermediate stages of hair loss caused by Androgenic Alopecia (the most common cause of hair loss). The treatment has shown excellent results for men and women dealing with Alopecia Areata, an autoimmune condition causing spot baldness. Results are not guaranteed, however most individuals experience excellent results.
The treatment takes only a few minutes and is safe, effective, non-invasive, and virtually pain-free. Three treatments at 1 month intervals are typically required to obtain optimal results which include thicker, higher quality hair growth.

PRP Treatment- Knee Osteoarthritis
Platelet Rich Plasma therapy has hit orthopedics by storm, it is the first true biologic treatment option which is safe and easy to use – making it the preferred therapeutic option for physicians and patients. PRP therapy can be used to treat rotator cuff tears, osteoarthritis of the knee, hamstring injuries, Achilles tendinopathy, lateral epicondylitis, and ulnar collateral ligament tears. PRP in Osteoarthritis: According to many clinical studies, PRP has been observed to increase the regeneration process in the arthritic cartilage due to its high concentration of growth factors. Additionally, PRP stimulates local cell activity and it is low-priced with no side-effects for the patient. Due to the presence of the concentrated growth factors, PRP modulates the phenotypic expression of chondrocytes, improving their recovery as PDGF stimulates proliferation of chondrocytes and IGF increases the synthesis of proteoglycan – increasing the strength of cartilage. As PRP has many regenerative properties, not only does it stimulate cellular activity, but it can also improve bone and cartilage recovery with the application of biomaterials. PRP treatment in tendinopathies has been studied extensively; and most obtained results have been positive.PRP Inhibits inflammation and slows down the progression of Osteoarthritis.
Stimulates the formation of new cartilage.
Increases the production of natural lubricating fluid in the joint, thereby easing painful joint friction and
Contains proteins that alter a patient's pain receptors and reduce pain sensation.
Responses to treatment vary based on the underlying condition. Most people require 1 or 2 injections. Each set of treatments is spaced at least 8 weeks apart. There is no limit to the number of treatments you can have and the risks and side effects do not change with the number of injections. Physiotherapy is strongly recommended after or between treatments to maximize benefits.
