Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)

NorthWest Medica Advanced Cosmetic Injector Nurses Serving London & Toronto Ontario and surrounding areas.

Platelet rich plasma (PRP) facial is a procedure developed for people who want healthy, youthful, and rejuvenated skin. This procedure is able to do this by harnessing your own body’s healing and regenerative properties. The PRP procedure take about 45min. Results can be experienced within a few weeks, with continual benefit of skin regeneration lasting for months—even over a year—after the procedure. The PRP facial is a type of skin treatment using the body’s own natural healing and growth factors that are derived from your own blood (hence the popular name on social media “ The Vampire Facelift®”). It can be combined with hyaluronic acid dermal fillers for lifting effect. The procedure involves a series of injections into strategic areas of the face to reduce wrinkles, add youthful volume, and improve the quality of your skin, often combined with microneedling for added skin resurfacing benefits.

PRP is also useful in the treatment of hair loss in certain individuals. The same effects that are seen with PRP treatment in the skin can also be used in the scalp. Instead of the plasma being injected into the face, the plasma is injected into the scalp where hair growth is needed and becomes stimulated. Hair follicles are nourished and this promotes a healthy growth cycle and prevents early loss.

PRP for vaginal rejuvenation or “O-Shot treatments” are another wonderful service provided by NothWest Medica. O-Shots are a non-invasive natural way to treat female sexual dysfunction by injecting the platelet rich plasma into specific parts of a woman’s vagina that stimulates the growth of new cells in the vaginal wall and clitoris. This increase sensitivity to stimuli and can reduces stress incontinence.

Candidates for PRP

PRP facials and other treatments are customized to your individual needs. People with more advanced signs of aging may benefit more from surgical treatment and/or other treatments.

People with less visible signs of aging may benefit from using less extensive non-surgical procedures like hyaluronic acid fillers and platelet-rich plasma alone. A personal consultation is the best way to determine if this treatment is right for you.

Rejuvenation from Within

The platelet-rich fibrin matrix is placed after a numbing cream has been applied, resulting in a near painless application. Platelet-rich fibrin matrix contains at least eight of the body’s own concentrated growth factors to rejuvenate our body’s tissues in several ways:

  1. Increases the formation of new blood vessels (also called “neovascularization”) and increases the blood flow to the skin, resulting in healthier skin texture and tone.
  2. Increases new cell formation for skin renewal.
  3. Spurs the production of new collagen, the major component of skin that diminishes in facial aging.
  4. Activates the multi-potent stem cells already in the skin by tricking it into thinking there is an injury, resulting in the use of a combination of growth factors and stem cells to generate new fatty tissue. The new fatty tissue repairs skin that was never injured in the first place, resulting in the generation of new, younger-skin.
  5. The growth factors in PRP activate your own adult stem cells in and under the skin.

A quick procedure that keeps working for several months

PRP only takes about an hour to complete, and that includes the: blood draw, preparation of the PRP, platelet-rich fibrin matrix, and Injection. Since skin renewal and rejuvenation is using the body’s own active regeneration components, facial skin renewal is continual for about 3 months after the procedure. The overall effects one desired treatment goals are achieved can last for over a year.

PRP can be combined with Other Procedures

PRP can be done in conjunction with wrinkle treatments such as Botox or Dysport. We can help you determine what complementary procedures are right for your individual case, and develop a treatment plan that you are comfortable with.

Plan for a little Downtime

You can expect some redness and minimal bruising especially if combining with microneedling. Facial down time is about 24hrs.
