PRP: Natural treatment for skin and hair in Calgary, AB
Your body produces growth factors with tremendous potential to stimulate tissue regeneration. Platelet rich plasma or PRP treatment puts that natural rejuvenation function to work for improved skin and hair quality. At Vanguard Medical & Aesthetic Clinic in Calgary, AB, you get PRP therapy with the oversight of a trained medical team for safe, effective results.
PRP treatment in Calgary, AB is virtually painless
For many years, doctors and orthopedic surgeons wondered how to heal wounds faster. They discovered the healing power of platelet rich plasma. That medical application formed the basis of PRP for aesthetic use.
PRP comes from a small amount of your own blood, drawn and prepared on site at Vanguard Medical & Aesthetic Clinic. The blood is separated with a centrifuge to obtain a concentration of platelets. The platelet rich plasma is then reintroduced into skin by injection.
The treatment takes about 30 minutes.
PRP comes from your own body, there is no risk of allergic reaction or rejection, and results look natural. Some patients experience minor swelling, redness, or bruising, but it typically resolves quickly.
How the PRP procedure is used
PRP skin treatment stimulates collagen production and promotes cellular turnover. It is used to:
- Tighten skin
- Lessen lines and wrinkles
- Improve overall skin quality
- Brighten a dull complexion
- PRP under eyes reduces puffiness and dark circles, while smoothing fine lines
- Improve skin elasticity following cosmetic surgery
- Complement the benefits of nonsurgical rejuvenation techniques such as neuromodulators or dermal filler injections
PRP hair treatment increases blood supply to follicles. This may trigger new growth and increase thickness of hair shafts for natural hair restoration. PRP can also be used in combination with medical hair loss therapies.
