Try the PRP Treatment at the Dermapurity Clinic to Treat Pigmentation
The recently opened Dermapurity Clinic in GK-1, New Delhi offers the latest services in surgical and cosmetic dermatology. Beauty Launchpad’s Isha Gakhar visited the clinic to understand more about these services that are steadily gaining attention as people become aware of how regular skincare at home is no longer enough to get the best results.
As pigmentation is a huge concern for Indian skin and considering my job profile that involves a lot of time spent outdoors and in front of a computer screen, a Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) treatment was recommended. The doctor suggested 4-5 sittings of this non-invasive procedure to treat my uneven skin tone and pigmentation around the forehead and upper lips.
The PRP treatment takes about 45 minutes – 1 hour to be completed. An in-depth consultation is vital as it helps to understand your skin and its needs. There are two steps in the procedure — depending on the areas treated, the micro-needling lasts for about 30 minutes, during which the doctor will roll an FDA-approved professional-grade derma roller on your face. While the face is numbing, a syringe of blood is drawn from your arm and put into a centrifuge to separate the PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma). The PRP solution is then massaged into the micro-needled area. Once the procedure is complete, serum or balm is applied to soothe any redness or irritation on the treated skin. A home care routine is also suggested to retain the results for longer.
Changes were visible immediately, but the procedure was a bit painful. It took 24 hours for my skin to settle, after which it felt and looked much younger and smoother. I have taken only one sitting of the recommended treatment and did not follow the home care routine – the results were satisfactory accordingly.
It is effective for people with:
- Acne scars
- Fine lines & wrinkles
- Surgical scars
- Sun damage
- Pigmentation/uneven skin texture
The people with the following issues should not opt for PRP:
- Active acne
- Chronic illnesses
- Face infection
- Platelet or Blood Disorder
- History of bruising or scarring easily
PRP has the ability to provide various proteins and huge amounts of growth factors that stimulate the healing process. There are different types of PRPs for different parts of the body such as Hair PRP for severe hair loss issues and Face PRP for glowing facial skin. At Dermapurity, we believe in using the best system for the centrifugal method and only use FDA-approved machines for the treatments.
“Platelet Rich Plasma is a non-invasive traditional approach that has been around for ages. It utilises ‘Regenerative Medicine Therapy’ which uses the body’s natural growth factors to heal tissues. The PRP process functions on the ‘Stem Cells Activator’ that uses injections with a concentration of the patient’s own platelets to accelerate healing. In this way, it never goes wrong because each individual patient’s own healing system is used to improve their musculoskeletal problems. The PRP technique is quick, organic and gives long-lasting results,” says Lalita Arya, VP – Dermapurity.
