PRP Therapy (Platelet Rich Plasma) Dubai
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy in Dubai
Price: 699 AED (min 5 sessions)
Due to the nature of the platelet rich plasma therapy, the method guarantees the correct plasma for the correct host. Also, our Dubai PRP therapy solutions help to not only strengthen your existing hair follicles but also serve to boost any inactive follicles. As such, the method has the potential for stimulating the growth of new hairs from sources which may otherwise lay dormant.
Dubai’s Premium PRP Therapists
The platelet rich plasma therapy method incorporated by our DHI hair specialists in our Dubai clinic is particularly useful for those individuals who are not yet suitable for our DHI Transplantation solutions. We understand that when it comes to hair loss, not only can it be a sensitive subject, but there is also a sense of urgency to implementing a solution to prevent any further hair loss.
The way our PRP therapy in Dubai serves to safely proliferate and promote growth makes this the ideal therapy solution for many individuals that find themselves suffering from hair loss. Equally, when used in conjunction with other procedures, such as hair transplantation, it encourages natural healing in the individual, meaning you can be confident that the hair growth process will be quite literally as quick and painless as is physically possible.
How Our PRP Therapy Works for Face
A small amount of blood (less than 50 ml) is obtained from the patient
Platelet-Rich Plasma is isolated following the centrifugation of blood
PRP is activated with DNA activators (thrombin) and enriched with calcium ions (e.g. calcium chloride)
Activated PRP is injected into the area which is suffering from hair loss in order to stimulate hair growth
What Is Platelet-rich Plasma (PRP) or Vampire Facial?
Plasma separated from the whole blood which contain white blood cell and platelets. However, platelets also contain hundreds of proteins called growth factors which are very important in the healing of injuries. PRP is plasma with many more platelets than what is typically found in blood. The concentration of platelets — and, thereby, the concentration of growth factors — can be 5 to 10 times greater or richer than usual. To develop a PRP preparation, blood must first be drawn from a patient. The platelets are separated from other blood cells and their concentration is increased during a process called centrifugation. Then the increased concentration of platelets is combined with the remaining blood.How Platelets Rejuvenate Skin?
Platelets are the cells that help skin to heal and grow new cells. The PRP, injected into specific areas of the skin like under eye or nasolabial fold, act as a matrix that promotes your own collagen to grow, regenerates tissue, and thus acts as to naturally smooth and tighten the skin. In this way, PRP softens wrinkles and creating smoother skin texture and tone.Is PRP therapy different from other injections or fillers?
Hyaluronic acid fillers, such as Restylane and Juvederm , are composed of semi solid material that fills lines and skin folds. These fillers are indicated to soften deeper lines such as the folds around the mouth area, or to plump lips. They usually last from 6-18 months; repeated treatments are required to fill the area again as it reduce with time.
PRP stimulates your own collagen to grow for total facial rejuvenation rather than individual wrinkle improvement. PRP is used for volumizing faces that are beginning to look drawn, to plump out cheek indentations, soften under eye hollows , improve the skin tone, tightness, and texture, and fill in areas where hyaluronic acid fillers cannot reach or are not safe to use.
Fillers can be used with PRP as the two types of treatments are meant for different purposes; they supplement each other to give the best final outcome of a more youthful looking face. Restylane and Juvederm fill specific lines and folds; PRP improves overall volume, fullness, and skin tone. PRP acts to improve overall quality, tightness, and texture of the skin rather than filling individual deeper wrinkles.Are PRP Injections Safe?
There are no problems like allergic reactions or scaring. PRP is a minimally invasive procedure and is very safe.What to expect during and after the PRP procedure?
Skin numbing cream is applied evenly all over the face for 30mins. Then a small amount of blood is drawn from you. While the PRP is being prepared, your skin will be cleansed and prepared for the treatment. The injections take a few moments, and are only mildly uncomfortable. The procedure is quick (20 minutes total), relatively painless, and requires no post procedure care or time off from daily events. Mild swelling, redness, or bruising fade within 1-3 days. The PRP is made from your own cells, virtually eliminating the possibility of negative side effects.How soon will I see results?
The goal of PRP skin rejuvenation therapy is to improve skin tone and texture, tighten skin, soften lines and pores. Results begin to show 3-4 weeks after the treatment session and continue to improve with time. Three to six treatment sessions are generally recommended depending on patient age and condition of the skin, spaced 4 weeks apart, to achieve the best outcome.How Long Do The Results Last?
Since this type of procedure is still under investigation, there is no current data to show how long the results will last. However, a good estimate is nine to 24 months.How Many Treatments Are Needed?
Usually we suggest 6 treatments or more depending on the patient’s skin problems or age. PRP is usually performed once a month for six months.How Long Does It Take To Recover?
Minor swelling and redness is noted right after the procedure, lasting only a few hours. Each session is individualized depending on the indication treated.
Vitiligo signs include:
- Patchy loss of skin color, which usually first appears on the hands, face, and areas around body openings and the genitals.
- Premature whitening or graying of the hair on your scalp, eyelashes, eyebrows or beard
- Loss of color in the tissues that line the inside of your mouth and nose (mucous membranes)
Vitiligo can start at any age, but usually appears before age 30.
Depending on the type of vitiligo you have, it may affect:
- Nearly all skin surfaces. With this type, called universal vitiligo, the discoloration affects nearly all skin surfaces.
- Many parts of your body. With this most common type, called generalized vitiligo, the discolored patches often progress similarly on corresponding body parts (symmetrically).
- Only one side or part of your body. This type, called segmental vitiligo, tends to occur at a younger age, progress for a year or two, then stop.
- One or only a few areas of your body. This type is called localized (focal) vitiligo.
- The face and hands. With this type, called acrofacial vitiligo, the affected skin is on the face and hands, and around body openings, such as the eyes, nose and ears.
It's difficult to predict how your disease will progress. Sometimes the patches stop forming without treatment. In most cases, pigment loss spreads and eventually involves most of your skin. Occasionally, the skin gets its color back.
Your doctor will ask about your medical history and examine your skin, possibly with a special lamp. Your evaluation might also include a skin biopsy and blood tests.
The choice of treatment depends on your age, how much skin is involved and where, how quickly the disease is progressing, and how it's affecting your life.
Medications and light-based therapies are available to help restore skin color or even out skin tone, though results vary and are unpredictable.
If you and your doctor decide to treat your condition with a drug, surgery or therapy, the process may take many months to judge its effectiveness. And you may have to try more than one approach or a combination of approaches before you find the treatment that works best for you.
Even if treatment is successful for a while, the results may not last or new patches may appear. Your doctor might recommend a medication applied to the skin as maintenance therapy to help prevent relapse.
No drug can stop the process of vitiligo — the loss of pigment cells (melanocytes). But some drugs, used alone, in combination or with light therapy, can help restore some skin tone.
Drugs that control inflammation. Applying a corticosteroid cream to affected skin might return color. This is most effective when vitiligo is still in its early stages. This type of cream is effective and easy to use, but you might not see changes in your skin's color for several months.
Corticosteroid pills or injections might be an option for people whose condition is progressing rapidly.
Medications that affect the immune system.
Light therapy. Phototherapy with narrow band ultraviolet B (UVB) has been shown to stop or slow the progression of active vitiligo. It might be more effective when used with corticosteroids or calcineurin inhibitors. You'll need therapy two to three times a week. It could take one to three months before you notice any change, and it could take six months or longer to get the full effect.
For people who can't go to a doctor's office for treatment, smaller portable or handheld devices for narrow band ultraviolet B therapy are available for home use. Talk with your doctor about this option as well if needed.
Possible side effects of narrow band ultraviolet B therapy include redness, itching and burning. These side effects usually clear up within a few hours after treatment.
