CellularMatrix PRP - enhanced by Hyaluronic Acid Cellular Matrix (HA)

 

Cellular Matrix PRP can be used either as a stand-alone treatment injected directly into the superficial dermis or together with the deeper injection into the superficial musculoaponeurotic system (SMAS). HA acts as a bio-scaffold, increasing growth factor residence time in tissue and enhancing cell migration and regeneration. CM-PRP-HA makes the balancing of volume and lift much easier and gives an instant result. Cellular Matrix PRP provides better contouring and seems to accelerate cellular regeneration, making this combination the right tool for skin hydration.

Why HA is beneficial for PRP

Hyaluronic acid is a key molecule involved in skin moisture and has a unique property in retaining water. Hyaluronic acid seems to improve the activity of several molecules contained in platelet-rich plasma:

 

  • HA is a major component of the extracellular matrix
  • Binds water and creates volume
  • Stimulates migration and proliferation of cells
  • Prolongs PRP effects by providing extracellular matrix effects

The following complex effect is achieved as the result of CELLULAR MATRIX™ injection procedures:

  • skin resistance and tone is increased;
  • wrinkles and creases become less visible and disappear;
  • skin tightens, becomes firm and compact;
  • skin tone is improved
  • deep moisturising effect of the skin;
  • face contours are enhanced and more youthful

Aftercare

During the first 24–48 hours after treatment you will experience redness, swelling and tenderness in the treated areas. These responses are normal and resolve quickly and spontaneously over the next 2-4 days. You can apply light water-based or mineral makeup where necessary. Drink plenty of cold water for 48 hours after the procedure.

Bruising at the site of injection is also common and clears completely in 1-10 days.

Swelling and bruising can give the appearance of ‘unevenness’ in the area treated. This will settle once the swelling and bruising has gone. Please contact the clinic for advice if there is any ‘unevenness’ present after 14 days.

After your Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) treatment you should:

  • Avoid alcohol, caffeine, hot drinks and spicy food for 24 hours, as these may exacerbate bruising and swelling.
  • Avoid medications such as aspirin or nurofen for 1-2 weeks as they are blood thinning agents and may exacerbate bruising (if these medications have been advised by your GP please check with your GP before stopping them)
  • Avoid supplements such as multivitamins, fish oils, glucosamine and Vitamin B or Vitamin E, which are blood thinning agents and may exacerbate bruising for 1-2 weeks (if these supplements have been advised by your GP please check with your GP before stopping them)
  • Avoid exercise/exertion for 24 hours
  • Avoid excess sun exposure or solarium use for 24 hours
  • Apply ice frequently as required to the area injected for up to 6 hours after the treatment. This will prevent or help to alleviate any bruising. It will also help to reduce any swelling.

You can use Arnica cream and arnica tablets (present in your aftercare pack or available for purchase from the clinic) to help alleviate any bruising.
NOTE: bruises can last 1-10 days. They are TEMPORARY and will completely disappear over time with no effect on your treatment. Once bruising has formed (within the first 48 hours) it is better to apply warmth to the area to encourage the body’s natural reabsorption of the bruise from the skin.

You will feel raised ‘bumps’ and raised ‘threads’ on the skin in some areas that have been treated. It is advisable to massage the areas gently with a greasy moisturiser or arnica cream 2-3 x daily for 5-7 days. This will ensure that the booster is spread across the deep layer of the skin to create a sheet of product which will attract water to it and hydrate the deep layer of the skin.

DO NOT MASSAGE ANY AREA TREATED WITH PLATELET RICH PLASMA (PRP) IF YOU HAVE ALSO HAD MUSCLE RELAXANTS INJECTED IN THE SAME AREA

If you feel that further treatment of an area is required, please contact us for a follow- up appointment or advice as to when a further treatment can be carried out.

If you suffer any allergic responses, prolonged generalised symptoms or any lumps/unevenness persists after 14 days, please contact us for advice.
