Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy
This procedure results in the formation of new collagen and elastin in the skin. As a result skin tightening occurs and your skin can be made more youthful and more elastic. This is especially effective around the eyes where few treatments are available to reduce wrinkling of the crepe like skin. Forehead, jowls and upper lip areas can also be treated as can the remainder of the face.
This procedure can be viewed as an alternative to upper and lower blepheroplasty as the effects can almost match this procedure. Alternatively it can be used to delay the necessity of a blepheroplasty.
Side effects :
Swelling post injection is common particularly around the eyes, which will last around 24 hrs, but in rare individuals it has lasted up to 4 days. Bruising can occur. Pin point/injection site brusing is common and occurs in 1: 3-4 persons. Injections around the eye can lead to “black eyes” and these occur at a rate of around 1:15-20. Arnica treatment is advised 2 days before and 2 days after treatment to reduce the incidence of brusing. There is no risk of allergy. As there are multiple injections it can be painful and topical or inhaled analgesia are used.
