What is PRP?
Platelet Rich Plasma therapy uses the body’s own platelet rich plasma cells to stimulate skin rejuvenation. During treatment, a small amount of blood is drawn from the patient and placed in a sterile tube. This tube is spun in a centrifuge that gradually separates the blood from the platelets within it. This isolated plasma typically contains between a five and ten times higher concentration of platelets than normal blood.
How Does it Work?
Within the body, platelets work to help restore, regenerate, and strengthen tissue in countless areas of the body. Platelets are so effective in healing the body because they contain a wide variety of different growth factors that provide nourishment and strength to the body’s cells.
When injected into the body during a PRP treatment, these platelets act as a matrix that encourages the patient’s body to produce extra collagen. Collagen is a structural protein that supports the skin, making it tighter, smoother, and firmer when it’s present in large amounts. The growth factors found in PRP also help regenerate and rejuvenate the skin tissue, helping correct fine lines, wrinkles, and skin laxity.
What can I Expect from a PRP Treatment?
Each PRP treatment typically takes no more than 30 minutes and involves little discomfort or downtime. A single session can help improve a wide variety of skin imperfections in a way that is both beautiful and natural looking.
Some of these common imperfections include:
- Uneven texture
- Fine lines
- Loose skin
- Large pores
PRP is safe enough for use on nearly any area of the skin, even sensitive places like the under eye area, mouth, cheeks, forehead, and neck.
Before undergoing treatment, prospective patients must schedule a consultation appointment with a member of our medical staff. During this appointment, one of our licensed dermatologists will take into account your aesthetic goals, past medical history, and current state of health in order to decide if PRP is right for you.
