PRP therapy in Manchester is a highly effective treatment we use at Epilight to address the problems of ageing skin and correct some imperfections. PRP stands for Platelet-rich plasma. The plasma component of your blood contains proteins that encourage new cell growth. As we age, cell replacement slows leaving our skin dull, dry and prone to wrinkles. PRP therapy rejuvenates cell and collagen replacement, thus leaving a more youthful appearance and skin less prone to wrinkling. The treatment is effective on it’s on in many instances. However, when paired with a chemical peel or laser skin resurfacing PRP acts as an anti-inflammatory and pain reliever while shortening the healing time.
When we schedule you for PRP therapy our health professionals will draw a small amount of your blood; as little as a teaspoon. In Manchester, PRP therapy uses only the protein rich blood plasma so we place your blood sample into a centrifuge to separate out the plasma and concentrate it for injection into the treatment area. In that area skin cells will accelerate the replacement process and the skin will look refreshed. Platelet-rich plasma is also used by medical professionals to promote faster healing of injuries, particularly sports injuries. The method of injection is Mesotherapy which uses tiny needles to inject the plasma into the mesoderm or middle layer of your skin.
