What is PRP Therapy?
PRP, which stands for Platelet Rich Plasma, is a treatment that uses plasma which is a component of you own blood cells to rejuvenate your skin by repairing collagen ad regenerating healthy tissue to produce a more overall youthful look. PRP therapy has been used in the health care field for over 25 years especially in orthopedic surgery, and has only recently become popular in the cosmetic setting.
How Does PRP Work?
A small amount of blood is drawn by our RN or physician which then spins in a centrifuge machine. This separates your plasma and platelets from your red and white blood cells. Following this process, the PRP is then drawn up into syringes and injected into the areas you want treated such as crows feet, lines around mouth or jawline. We can also use our micro needling technique with the PRP to give you the overall rejuvenation of your skin. The Micro-needling process is used in conjunction with the PRP by applying the PRP topically to your skin and using our Rejuvepen Micro-needling system. This process is used for full face, neck and chest.
Why Should You Choose PRP Therapy?
PRP therapy is a natural way to improve the texture and appearance of your skin using your body’s own healing responses. With PRP therapy you do not have to worry about your body rejecting the treatment or experiencing allergic reactions. This treatment also offers a shorter recovery time and little to no pain following your appointment. You may experience tenderness and redness in the treated areas that feels a like a slight sunburn. These recovery symptoms will vary from person to person.
How Soon Will You See Results?
Most patients start seeing noticeable results from PRP therapy within a few days of treatment, but the best results can be seen within two to three months. Some areas or deeper lines might require more than one treatment. Results from PRP therapy can last between one to two years depending on the individual’s skin and lifestyle habits. We encourage patients to wear sunscreen, practice good skin care regimen, eat healthy and drink lots of water so you can get the very best out of your PRP treatments.
