Different PRP injection techniques
Traditional Needle Injection
Using a tiny needle to inject the PRP treatment in the required locations. We use this method if the treated area is small and confined. Since a single needle is used to inject the plasma, this method is longer and it might cause more bruises.
Vital injector Mesogun
The Vital multiple needle injector is an amazing tool that provides precise injection depth and volume. Since the mesogen is equipped with a multiple needle tip and a vacuum nozzle, it reduces pain and bruising. We perform most of our vampire facials and PRP treatments using the vital injector.
High-pressure Needle-free Application
Using high air pressure enhances the ability of the plasma to penetrate deeper into the skin without the need for any needle. This technique is new and we use it only if a patient has low pain tolerance or bleeding irregularities.
PRP Treatment care instructions
After your PRP treatment, please read and follow these instructions carefully:
- Following your PRP injections, you will have very few restrictions and can resume your normal activities virtually immediately.
- For at least 8 hours following your treatment, do not touch, push, massage, or manipulate the treated area(s).
- At least three days to one week before and after your treatment, avoid taking aspirin, Motrin, Ibuprofen or Aleve.
- You can use Tylenol or other Acetaminophen medicines if you’re in pain or discomfort. You may administer ice to the injected region for 20-30 minutes following the treatment if you like, although we prefer if you can avoid it.
- After your treatment, wait at least 6 hours before washing or showering.
- After your treatment, don’t apply any lotions, creams, or make-up for at least 6 hours.
- Avoid excessive exercise, sun, and heat exposure for at least three days following your treatment. For three days before and after your treatment, stay away from alcohol, caffeine, and cigarettes.
- Maintain a balanced diet and drink at least 64 ounces of water on treatment day. (Because of its high Silica content, Fiji water is suggested.)
- During the first week following, continue to drink plenty of water.
- Bruising, redness, itching, soreness, and swelling are common side effects that can persist anywhere from 3 to 10 days after your surgery.
Combining PRP Treatment with Microneedling
Acne scars are a common skin concern among both men and women. While there are a number of treatments available, many patients are looking for a more natural option. Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a concentration of platelets that contains growth factors. When injected into the skin, PRP can help to improve the appearance of acne scars by stimulating collagen production. Microneedling is another popular treatment for acne scars. It involves using a device to create tiny punctures in the skin. This helps to prompt the skin’s healing response, resulting in the production of new collagen. When used together, PRP and microneedling can provide an effective approach for improving the appearance of acne scars.
Combining PRP Treatment with Fraxel
Fraxel laser is a popular treatment for wrinkles, fine lines, and other signs of aging. However, some patients may not achieve the desired results with this treatment alone. For these patients, combining Fraxel laser with platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections can provide more comprehensive rejuvenation.
PRP is derived from the patient’s own blood, so there is no risk of allergic reactions or other side effects. The cost of PRP injections is also relatively low. PRP contains a high concentration of growth factors and other nutrients that can help to regenerate new collagen and skin cells. As a result, PRP injections can help to improve the tone and texture of the skin.
When used in combination with Fraxel laser, PRP can help to maximize the benefits of the treatment. Fraxel laser works by creating microscopic columns of injury in the skin. This triggers the body’s natural healing response, which leads to the production of new collagen. PRP can help to accelerate this process, resulting in faster and more dramatic results.
For patients who are looking for comprehensive skin rejuvenation, combining PRP with Fraxel laser is an ideal solution.
