Although Dracula PRP Therapy (Platelet Rich Plasma) is a fantastic standalone treatment, there are times where combining it with another treatment is a good idea, in order to achieve the very best results. In this post I look at which treatments I find work best when combined with PRP.
Dracula PRP Therapy and Carboxytherapy
The treatment I find works best when combined with PRP is Carboxytherapy.
Carboxytherapy uses carbon dioxide [CO2] gas for therapeutic purposes, injected in tiny amounts. It was discovered by French cardiologists as a therapy for patients with poor blood circulation and fat accumulation. Naturally present in our bodies at all times, carbon dioxide is essential to life, we inhale oxygen and exhale carbon dioxide.
Some conditions are believed to be due to poor blood-flow to particular regions. For example, dark under-eye circles, stretch marks and scars. When a small amount of carbon dioxide gas is injected into the area, the body is tricked into increasing the oxygen flow.
Dark circles under the eyes
Dark under eye circles are difficult to hide, and often make people appear very tired, even when they are not. By injecting a small amount of carbon dioxide gas into the area, we are tricking the body into increasing the oxygen flow to the area.
Stretch marks occur when the skin is stretched to the point where the dermal collagen ruptures. Carboxytherapy causes the formation of new collagen and subsequently thickens the skin to improve the appearance of the stretchmarks by rebuilding the collagen matrix and here once again the two treatments combined work very well together
Dracula Therapy and chemical peels
A chemical peel can diminish many signs of aging on the face, as well as the hands, neck, and chest area, plus they can treat some skin conditions.
A chemical peel will improve and smooth the texture of the skin by using a chemical solution that causes the dead skin to slough off, eventually revealing healthy new skin. A chemical peel effectively ‘cleans’ the surface of the skin, while PRP will increase its strength
Dracula PRP Therapy and hyaluronic acid
One of the key benefits of Dracula PRP Therapy is that it is autologous, which means it only contains cells from your own body. However, sometimes it can be beneficial to mix it with Hyaluronic acid, particularly when I wish to add volume to an area, without having to inject multiple times.
For example I have treated a number of patients who have been left with uneven sized breasts following reduction/enlargement surgery. The HA adds volume to the area, and the PRP rejuvenates the skin and tackles any scars.
