Autologous PRP Mesotherapy
Thanks to its anti-inflammatory and regenerative action, autologous mesotherapy is widely used in soft tissue injuries (e.g. tendons, ligaments, cartilage) and in the treatment of chronic conditions (e.g. arthritis, fibromyositis, etc.).
How to apply
The procedure involves first taking a small amount of blood by venipuncture. The material is then centrifuged in a special device to separate the plasma from the red blood cells and isolate the platelet-rich part.
After a special substance that activates the platelets is added, the material is ready for injection.
The application is done with special fine needles.
The injection is done at different depths of the skin depending on the case and the desired result, from completely superficial to quite deep near the bone level. The technique involves the slow injection of the material in a linear or criss-crossing path followed by massage of the area.
In the case of application on the face, small amounts are injected starting from the deeper layers of the skin and then to the more superficial ones, while as a rule the treatment starts with the most ?problematic? areas.
In other areas the technique is similar with minor variations on a case-by-case basis, such as the design of the vessels and tendons in the hands, in order to avoid injury during the procedure.
INDICATIONS APPLICATION & DURATION RESULT
Since autologous mesotherapy belongs to the category of anti-aging therapies, it can be used alone but mainly in combination with other therapies in broader anti-aging protocols. Contraindications to treatment are the presence of autoimmune or haematological diseases in the personal history and active skin infection. In which parts of the body? It is applied to the upper, middle and lower face, and is also indicated for the hands, décolleté, scalp and other problem areas of the body.
When does the result appear and how long does it last?
Autologous mesotherapy can be applied as a monotherapy or in combination with other anti-aging methods. To achieve the best results it is recommended to apply 3 treatments every 4-8 weeks. Improvement in texture, tone and firmness of the skin can be observed from the following days of treatment and become apparent around 8 weeks, while full collagen reconstruction is expected in about 3 months.
