Soften wrinkles, smooth your skin’s texture and tone, and promote the growth of collagen with Platelet Rich Plasma skin therapy at Elan Medical Skin Clinics in Rayleigh, Essex and central London.
PRP skin therapy is the latest rejuvenation technique to be added to our comprehensive list of facial treatments. As well as skin rejuvenation, PRP stem cell injection therapy is ideal for curbing hair loss and treating osteoarthritis of the shoulder, knee and ankle joints.
We are delighted to introduce our experienced, award-winning practitioner who will be performing PRP therapy at Elan Medical Skin Clinic. Dr Alex Tran has been a GP for 17 years and over the last five years he has developed a keen interest in aesthetic medicine.
Dr Alex says: “I believe when my clients look better, they feel better – which makes it all the more worthwhile to strive for the best results. I’m a perfectionist when it comes to aesthetics and my primary aim is to enhance a client’s beauty without compromising safety and always striving for the most natural-looking results.”
What does PRP stem cell injection therapy involve?
A small amount of blood is taken and placed into a centrifuge to separate the red and white blood cells from the platelets and plasma. Platelets help tissues heal and regenerate and when injected into specific areas, encourage your own collagen to grow, tissue to regenerate and your skin to tighten and rejuvenate.
For patients with thinning hair, PRP may actually stimulate the hair follicles to grow and produce thicker and healthier looking hair. Patients with osteoarthtitis of knee, shoulder and ankle joints may also benefit from PRP therapy as injections of stem cells into the worn joint have been shown to encourage regrowth of cartilage and reduce pain and stiffness. Success rate in improving osteoarthritis joints is around 80-90% and the results are long lasting.
For skin rejuvenation, PRP therapy may also be combined with mesotherapy where a cocktail of vitamins and minerals are injected under the skin to obtain even better results.
How long does Platelet Rich Plasma skin therapy take?
The procedure usually takes around 15 minutes and because your own cells are used, there is very little chance of a negative reaction. There’s no downtime and most people experience no pain during treatment as a numbing cream is used. Results are usually seen within three to four weeks.
