Preparation is simple and quick, and completed on the physicians premises in the appointment time.
Prior to treatment a simple blood sample of 10 – 20 mls is extracted from the patient. This blood is immediately placed in the centrifuge for 5 – 8 minutes. When centrifugation is complete your plasma will be separated from your red blood cells. The rich platelets are extracted from the base of the plasma gel. The platelets are injected into the deep dermis or fat layer of the skin. Platelets gradually increase collagen which can increase skin thickness and overall health of the skin.
Redness, swelling, slight pain, bruising or all these signs can happen in the treatment area. These side effects usually subside in a few hours to a few days. Post care instructions will need to be followed through.
