Let’s face it, it can be hard to accept the reality of aging, especially when you begin to see signs of wrinkle development and hair loss. Fortunately, like many other skin concerns, Define by Jill has the solution and it’s called Platelet Rich Plasma treatment.

So what is PRP Therapy?

Platelet Rich Plasma treatment, better known as PRP Therapy, is an emerging cosmetic treatment which uses the natural source of blood to revitalise skin cells and promote hair growth. It does this by taking a small amount of blood to create a concentrated platelet serum which stimulates natural collagen in various areas of the body, leaving the skin feeling smooth and reenergised.

For many people, this can be the perfect alternative to invasive surgery or laser treatments and will result in very similar outcomes, without pain, lengthy recoveries, and outrageously expensive costs. The best part is the results are long lasting, with a time span up to 18 months.

At Define by Jill, we recommend three treatments for optimum results with effects becoming visible after your second treatment, and you’ll be left counting down the days until your third.

How does Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy work?

While its official name may sound long and confusing, the procedure is fast and rather simple.

It begins by extracting a small amount of blood from the patient and placed into a centrifuge, where the platelets are separated out from red and white blood cells. Once isolated, the platelets are reinjected into the area of concern where they begin to facilitate collagen production and heal damaged tissue.

The results are flawless, with improvements in skin tone, texture, volume, and appearance all while promoting cell regeneration for healthier skin.

The general downtime post PRP procedure is between 24-48 hours rest with at least 6 weeks between treatments to allow your body to react to the natural plasma.

Reactions are minimal, since the injection is formulated by your own blood, however swelling many occur, especially if you react to mosquito bites. Contrary to what you may think, in terms of PRP, the more swelling occurs, generally the better the result.

With a treatment that is boasting numerous benefits and amazing results, PRP Therapy should definitely be a consideration for anyone looking to turn back time and promote hair restoration. The outcome is more than an enhanced appearance. Platelet Rich Plasma treatment boosts the skins collagen, through a natural and non-invasive procedure.
