PRP And Mesotherapy
Mesotherapy and PRP are minimally-invasive methods of rejuvenating the skin, stopping hair loss, and arresting evident signs of aging. Platelet-rich plasma therapy and mesotherapy are techniques that help in cell growth and cell repairs and provide deeper skin with much-needed vitamins and minerals. These procedures are safe, quick and highly effective in providing the desired result far quicker than any traditional and long procedures.
In mesotherapy, vitamins, minerals, enzymes, nutrients and hormones are injected into the middle layer, also known as mesoderm. This process provides the much-needed nourishment to the skin, rejuvenates it and gives more glow. The nutrients injected into the skin ensure that the skin remains energized and young.
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy
In this process, plasma derived from the blood collected from part of a body is injected into the skin. This plasma revitalizes the skin cells resulting in an increase in collagen and elastin. This helps in treating skin and hair ailments and even hair growth. In some cases, growth activators are added to PRP for increased effects on the skin and hair.
Mesotherapy and PRP help in the reduction of pigmentation, wrinkles, lines, scars, inflammation of skin tissues, alopecia, and more.
