Ask any dermatologist for the most effective skincare procedure and it will be Fractional Laser. Seriously, I can bet you! You want to further enhance results of the treatment? Add a few shots of PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) and get the most noticeable results almost instantly with nominal downtime.
In this era of perfection, everybody wants to look perfect, and the first thing that gives you a perfect look is a flawless skin. For most of us, a perfect skin is nothing more than a mere desire. But the advent of Fractional Laser has made this desire a reality. Name any skin problem – from facial wrinkles to sagging skin and from acne scars to sun damaged skin – and Fractional Laser is the solution.
Usually when patients seek a skin treatment, they want a magical remedy that will give them best results without interfering with their ability to perform routine tasks. Today, when life is so busy and fast moving, nobody can afford weeks off from work. If you are also seeking one such treatment that offers best results in minimum time with nominal downtime, Fractional Laser and PRP Therapy may be worth considering.
What is Fractional Laser and PRP Therapy?
As the name suggests, it is a combination of Fractional CO2 lasers and PRP therapy. The former involves skin resurfacing using a special type of lasers, called Fractional CO2 lasers. After the treatment, Platelet Rich Plasma is applied topically to the treated areas to speed up the recovery process and enhance the efficacy of treatment. It is a fairly simple procedure that you can get done during your lunch hours. Simply come to the clinic, get the procedure done and go back to work. Yes, it is that simple.
How Fractional Laser and PRP therapy works?
Fractional lasers work by targeting the damaged skin tissues in a fractionated method in small microscopic columns, leaving the skin around each column intact, to aid quick healing. As the skin heals, collagen and elastin production is stimulated, resulting in smooth and rejuvenated skin. Fractional Lasers have numerous cosmetic applications, but they are most commonly used to eliminate facial wrinkles and creases, smooth out acne scars and even out skin tone by treating pigmentation and age spots.
Although very effective in treating in numerous skin conditions, fractional lasers have a down side and that is some mild yet unavoidable side effects. These include redness and a bit of scaling, which can last for two to three days following the procedure. To minimize the risk of complications and neutralize the negative side of fractional lasers, dermatologists use Platelet Rich Plasma shots.
Platelet Rich Plasma is nothing but a serum separated from the patient’s own blood. A blood sample is drawn from the patient and processed in a special apparatus for a few minutes to separate platelets from the red blood cells and white blood cells. This Platelet Rich Plasma is then applied topically to the treated areas. Platelets seep into the skin through the micro wounds, reaching the deeper layers of the dermis, where it increases natural production of collagen and elastin, and speeds up recovery process, significantly reducing the downtime.
This combination of Fractional Laser and PRP gives more significant results as compared to using these treatments separately. Platelet Rich Plasma is rich in growth factors, which work by stimulating adult stem cells in damaged tissues.
Benefits of using PRP
– Since PRP is drawn from the patient’s own body, it does not carry any risk of allergic reaction
– Rich in growth factors, PRP helps in regeneration of new skin tissues and speeds up recovery of micro wounds caused by fractional lasers
– As stated above, PRP application after laser skin resurfacing helps reduce most of the side effects including redness, scarring, scaling and chances of post procedural hyper pigmentation.
– PRP therapy also enhances blood circulation in the treated area, and this ultimately makes the skin look brighter and healthier.
– Tissue regeneration due to PRP application makes the skin more smooth and supple, and also adds volume to the treated areas.
