This treatment has been used since 2006 for skin rejuvenation. The therapy produces a gradual but noticeable improvement in skin tone and texture with minimum down time. It involves taking a blood sample and applying centrifugal forces to release the plasma. This plasma is then re-injected into the areas of skin of the patient using micro injections in a mesotherapy fashion to stimulate skin rejuvenation. Its applications are scarring, acne, wrinkles, laxity, sun damaged and ageing skin. It is currently being used in wound care trials with promising results.
A dermaroller impregnated with tiny needles is gently but purposefully rolled over the skin, (having firstly applied topical local anaesthetic,) to create micropunctures on the skins surface. This in turn generates a healing response and collagen production. This procedure is often combined with PRP for superior outcomes. Sun block is advised after all invasive facial procedures to prevent Post inflammatory hyperpigmentation.
