Cellulite has been one of the skin conditions prevalent in women regardless of race, age, and body structure. Studies show that 80% to 95% of post-pubescent women are affected because they tend to have more subcutaneous fat and weaker connective tissue structure in the dermis in cellulite-prone areas. The majority of cellulite is caused by the expansion of fat cells and stiffening and tightening of the fibrous collagen bands in the skin.
Several factors appear to be connected to the chance of having cellulite.
Genetics Weight & weight fluctuations Poor circulation Hormones Sun damage Smoking Poor nutrition Gender Exercise and Diet Stimulating collagen and repairing the skin’s structural issues are what lead to improvements in appearance.
How Platelet Rich Plasma Treatment Fights Cellulite
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) treatment is like regular annual lab work. Blood is drawn out of the patient and will be placed in special centrifuge equipment that spins the blood the components separate, leaving a platelet-rich layer. The platelet-rich layer will be injected back to the treatment area and will stimulate the body’s innate healing capabilities by promoting collagen growth and cytokines. PRP is a nonsurgical treatment that has been used for several conditions and procedures including stretch marks. It takes less than an hour similar to getting a flu shot. For cellulite, PRP can be used as a single treatment or in conjunction with other treatments. However, PRP does not melt fat cells. What it does is it creates a healthier skin structure to minimize the appearance of cellulite.
