Acne

Acne is a common skin condition that affects most people at some point in their lives. It causes spots, oily skin and sometimes skin that’s hot or painful to touch. Persistent Acne affects the skins laxity which with time occurs in loose skin around the cheek area, giving the impression of much older looking skin and even scars.
Kornelia Hauck has been specialised in the process of Platelet Rich Plasma treatment to enhance and restore the skin of all body areas specially the face, neck and hands. She developed it to a Signature Treatment and is able to rejuvenate your skin by isolating elements from your blood which can then be injected to treat the whole face with particular emphasis on the problem zones. Before the treatment you’ll be advised on particular vitamin regimen and nourishment.

The Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Procedure

After determining that the Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) treatment is right for you, a small amount of your blood will be drawn, similar to having basic blood tests at your doctor’s office. This will then be used to prepare the PRP in a 15 minute process. During that time, the areas to be treated will be cleansed and prepared for the procedure.

Once this is done, the platelet rich plasma (PRP) is injected into the skin to be treated. Serum received from poor platelet plasma (PPR) are then applied to these areas. The entire process typically takes no more than 35-45 minutes.

Effects decrease in heavy smokers or alcohol use.

You should not undergo the treatment if you have the following :

  • Skin Disorders – eg. SLE, Porphyria
  • Cancer
  • Chemotherapy
  • Any severe metabolic or systemic disorders
  • Haemathological disorder, especially abnormal platelet counts or function
  • Anti-coagulation therapy
  • Any drugs or therapy resulting in immune suppression
  • Pregnancy or breastfeeding
  • Steroid therapy
  • Ongoing infection

What To Expect After Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Treatment

Immediately after treatment with platelet rich plasma (PRP), the treated area might get slightly swollen and red; this typically fades in a 30 min.

Bruising is possible, however if advice on vitamin regimen is taken as recommended the risks are minimal. In case any bruising occur Arnica cream can be helpful.

Treatment with Kornelia is relatively painless due to her skills and if needed can be treated with ice compress.

You should not touch your face or sweat for 6 hours after the treatment.

Avoid sauna, steam and sun bed for three days.

No laser or any other needling treatments for the next 6 weeks

Platelet Rich Plasma needs time to work her way up for the improvement to be visible. It is a long and slow process, therefore the day after the treatment the treated area looks great but the actual results are to expect after 3-6 weeks.
