Overview of Needle-Free PRP
Medaesthetics was one of the first clinics in Australia to offer Needle-free PRP using Fraxel Co2 Laser.
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP), also referred to as the "Vampire Facial" has gained popularity in recent years as a natural skin rejuvenation treatment that is endorsed by celebrities. However, there is one major drawback with conventional PRP treatment; it is quite painful and, as the name suggests, involves blood.
PRP has long been used as a tissue healing agent in arthritic joints and scalp hair loss for many decades. PRP has also been used as a healing agent to speed up the recovery process after many surgical procedures such as Hair Transplant Surgery, Highdef Vaser Liposuction, Blepharoplasty, Fat grafting and facelift surgery to name a few.
In 2009, Dr Jadoon started experimenting with PRP as a healing and skin rejuvenating agent after Fraxel Skin Resurfacing and medical-grade skin needling in clinical practice.
The idea was simple; why not use the existing small entry holes created by Fraxel laser or the skin needling device, to infuse the PRP solution directly into the skin instead of injecting it using painful needles.
Dr Jadoon presented this treatment combination as a case study at the A5M Anti-Ageing Conference in Melbourne in 2013 as the Speaker.
The combined effects of Fraxel Laser and PRP in one treatment session deliver far superior skin rejuvenation results which are far more comfortable and bloodless.
Frequently Asked Questions
Most commonly treated areas are:
- Face (most popular)
- Neck & Décolletage
- Scars & stretch marks
The entire process takes about 60 minutes. A very strong, specially formulated numbing cream is first applied for 30 minutes. Then the procedure itself takes approximately 30 minutes.
The procedure is far less painful than conventional PRP treatment which requires hundreds of injections. We use a high strength numbing cream to numb the treatment area. The Fraxel Laser treatment itself is very tolerable and the energy settings used are very different from the settings used for the routine Fraxel CO2 laser, so the resulting downtime and discomfort are minimal in comparison.
The downtime is approximately three to five days of redness and mild swelling.
Patients with unrealistic expectations, or those suffering from a chronic medical condition affecting their immune system or skin are not good candidates.
Full results are usually noticeable about six to eight weeks after the treatment. However, most patients notice a significant improvement in the quality and texture of their skin soon after the initial healing phase.
Needle-Free PRP is our signature Skin Rejuvenation procedure. It is an excellent way to minimise skin ageing for years to come.
Most patients opt to have this treatment once every six to twelve months for ongoing benefits. However, the results from a single treatment can last up to twenty-four months if higher Fraxel Laser energy settings are used.
As mentioned above; the treatment involves two procedures carried out simultaneously.
