This is a gift that nobody can so no to, after all, who doesn't want the gift of beautiful, glowing skin? Ageing along with damage by sun and pollution causes the skin to become dull with lines and wrinkles. The cure? Well, sign up your partner for PRP therapy and chemical peels.
Cosmetic surgeon Dr Anup Dhir, Apollo Hospital says, "PRP therapy uses the unique growth factors found in our blood, helps to restore the texture, tone and natural glow of the skin. This is a simple procedure and can be done in about one to two hours. A local anaesthetic cream is applied to the face (or area to be treated) and kept for about 1 hour to numb the skin. In the meanwhile, 10-20 mls of blood is withdrawn from one of the big veins in the hand and is centrifuged to separate the platelets and plasma from the red blood and other cells."
Meanwhile, chemical peels, dermabrasion and skin resurfacing using a variety of lasers are other popular ways to get an instant glow.
Price: PRP therapy - Rs 20, 000
Chemical peels, dermabrasion and skin resurfacing- Rs 5,000.
