Introduction

Having clear and spotless skin is what everybody desires! At least once in our lifetime all of us have wished for a radiant and glowy skin like that of our favourite celebrity, haven’t we? 

But that is not the case always as we have many issues related to our skin ranging right from ageing problems and dullness to dark spots and blemishes.  But not everybody is ready to go under the knife to achieve the flawless and beautiful skin of our dreams! 

Dr Hiren Bhatt, Nishtha Wellness’s expert Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon gives a perfect solution to this dilemma, too without having to undergo an extensive invasive procedure: Platelet Rich Plasma Treatment.

What Is Platelet Rich Plasma Treatment?

Have you ever given a thought to the fact that our own blood is highly beneficial for our cosmetic needs? Have you ever heard of the term ‘Vampire Facial’ and wondered ‘What is a vampire facelift?’ Although sounds scary, a vampire facial is a more common term for Platelet Rich Plasma Treatment or PRP.

Platelet Rich Plasma Treatment, or PRP, involves using the patient’s own blood in order to acquire the desired results. The blood which is taken from the patient is first purified and then platelet-rich plasma is extracted from it. This PRP is then injected into the problem areas of the patient like skin and hair to get flawless skin and healthy hair.

PRP for Skin

The skin has a tendency to fall dull overtime. This can affect the overall appearance of the person as the skin is the most visible part, especially, the skin on the face. PRP for skin generally helps to boost collagen production which in turn improves the quality and the texture of the skin. This helps to restore glowing and radiant skin.

What Is Collagen?

Collagen is actually the element that accelerates the healing procedure. Higher collagen results in a firm, smooth toned skin. Hence, stimulating collagen through PRP is advantageous for the skin.

At Nishtha Wellness, Vadodara consultation is of utmost importance before diving into any procedure. During a consultation with Dr Hiren Bhatt, our expert Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon makes sure that he understands the needs and requirements of the patients.

What To Expect Before The Procedure Of PRP?

Before beginning the treatment, Dr Hiren Bhatt will make sure that he knows your entire medical history. This is necessary to have a smooth procedure. 

Also, any pertaining allergies must be told to the doctor before the procedure itself. Some pictures might be taken in order to analyze the result after the procedure.

How Is Platelet Rich Plasma Generated?

This is a common question that is frequently asked. Dr Hiren Bhatt, accredited Plastic Surgeon and Founder of Nishtha Wellness explains the process of generating PRP as follows: 

  • The first step involves drawing a certain amount of blood from the patient’s arm.
  • A centrifugal machine is then used in order to separate the red blood cells and white blood cells from the platelet-rich plasma which is also called ‘liquid gold’.
  • This PRP is then ready to be injected.

How Is PRP Performed At Nishtha Wellness?

PRP for skin is an outpatient procedure at Nishtha Wellness, Vadodara. This process is safely carried out in the state-of-the-art clinic and the patient can go home immediately once the procedure is over. 

Dr Hiren Bhatt, board-certified Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon of Nishtha Wellness, Vadodara reveals the steps involved in PRP treatment:

  • A properly measured amount of the patient’s own blood is extracted and processed in the PRP centrifuge machine.
  • After the blood is processed, the plasma rich content (serum) is separated and prepared for insertion.
  • A topical anaesthetic cream is applied to reduce the pain and discomfort of the patient.
  • In the case of PRP for skin, markings are made wherever the serum needs to be injected. The process works well because a large number of platelets are introduced in the area that speeds up healing.

What Are The Risks Associated With PRP?

There are no permanent risks associated with PRP as no foreign substance is introduced in the body. Here are a few temporary issues that might come up rarely after the process:

  • Bruising
  • Discolouration at the site of injection
  • Chances of infection
  • Formation of blood clots

Utmost care must be taken at all times in order to avoid these risks from turning into reality.
