- What’s included: PRP treatment for cellulite
What is platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy?
This 20-30 minute treatment. PRP treatment is the most powerful way to treat cellulite and ensure that your skin regains a smooth surface.
Since there are multiple causes of cellulite, PRP is used as a complementary treatment while providing the best possible results.
Once properly diagnosed, PRP is obtained by drawing your own blood with special PRP tubes and processing it to extract a high concentration of growth factors (these are important for treating the cellulite areas).
The process of reinjecting your own blood plasma into the skin is based on the process of biostimulation, which is the activation of the skin’s biological functions with the aim of smoothing its texture, resulting in aesthetic improvement.
PRP has the ability to produce growth factors that signal collagen molecules to revitalise the skin area, making it smoother, firmer and tighter. When treating cellulite areas of the skin, PRP therapy helps to smooth out the hollows in the skin and also contributes to firmness.
What happens at the sessions?
An initial blood sample will be collected from the patient, before it is placed in a centrifuge machine which separates natural body proteins from red blood cells. The remaining natural proteins will then be re-injected into the selected area.
What about aftercare?
Clients may experience mild swelling of the target area following the treatment. Avoiding vigorous activity is recommended until the swelling is gone, with pain manageable through the use of non-narcotic analgesic medication. Hair can usually be washed as normal immediately after the treatment.
