Autologous Mesotherapy with platelet-rich plasma (PRP)
The philosophy of PRP Autologous Mesotherapy
Autologous mesotherapy, also known as vampire’s facelift or even Dracula Lift, is a new cosmetic treatment to achieve a more youthful and firm appearance and it is based on our own blood. Its name “PRP” reveals the treatment’s ingredients, that is, the platelet-rich plasma and a variety of nutrients and growth agents in our own blood, which are present in the plasma and platelets. The primary focus of this treatment is to reconstruct the tissues, to fight against the signs of ageing and to generate new cells by leveraging the tools provided by our own bodies (autologous treatment).
The skin of the face, neck, decolletage and arms enjoys the value of a new, innovative ally, while white stretch marks and scars (such as acne scars) benefit from this precious treatment.
Why it is so safe and effective
The impressive autologous mesotherapy results are primarily due to the platelet growth agents, but also to the plasma ingredients that come from the patient’s blood. In that way, deep rejuvenation and hydration of the skin is achieved through the use of plasma and its ingredients. The most important effect though, is regeneration through the production of new collagen and elastin and the multiplication of skin cells caused by the platelet growth agents.
This method is perfectly safe since its ingredients are taken from the patient’s own blood, which makes it 100% biocompatible and rules out the risks of allergies, autoimmune reactions and other side effects.
The first step at Medi Well is to collect blood (usually a quantity of 20ml, same amount collected for a standard blood count) which is spun in the centrifuge by the doctor to isolate the platelet-rich plasma (PRP). Then, after your skin is properly treated with an anaesthetic cream, a thin needle is used for the infusion into the area to be treated.
Results are visible after a period of three weeks to one month. We begin with one treatment per month for three months, and then one session every six to nine months is required. Based on your clinical profile, more frequent treatments may be applied. The power of this treatment lies in its pluripotent blend, which achieves reconstruction and regeneration in a natural way, contrary to any artificial applications.
That’s how PRP autologous mesotherapy is a perfectly safe and reliable way to achieve the following:
- Firmness, tightening and youthful texture of the skin, due to new collagen and elastin production
- Rejuvenation, radiance and hydration of the skin
- Correction of surface wrinkles
- Correction and improvement of white stretch marks and scars, such as acne scars
- Restoration of the skin’s firmness on the hands and arms
PRP therapy by Medi Well is perfectly safe and compatible with our bodies, since it utilises the ingredients of our own blood. Its more significant benefit is that reconstruction of the skin is achieved in a perfectly natural way by triggering the body’s inherent mechanisms. That’s why the results are natural and long-lasting. Counter indications are few and include unregulated diabetes mellitus, a recent history of malignancy, skin conditions, severe blood diseases and intake of anticoagulants. In all cases, there is nothing to worry about. Your medical history is taken upon your arrival at Medi Well and the doctor will decide if you are eligible for PRP autologous mesotherapy.
