As skin ages, it loses elasticity and firmness. Platelet-rich plasma therapy (PRP) can change that. It works by replenishing your skin with your own blood cells. PRP is rapidly becoming one of the most in-demand cosmetic therapies in the United States.
What is PRP?
This state-of-the-art nonsurgical procedure is a regenerative technique used for its anti-aging properties. Platelet-rich plasma therapy utilizes the growth factors contained in your own platelets to exhilarate the skin and increase collagen production. During the procedure, blood is drawn from your arm and spun through a centrifuge to extract your protein-rich plasma. You have then injected into your face, using microneedling techniques. Microneedling is exactly what the name implies–tiny sterile needles that create a series of superficial punctures. The PRP combined with microneedling, stimulates the growth of healthy skin cells, rejuvenating your appearance.
Benefits of This Treatment
Because PRP increases collagen production, it improves the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and it tightens and plumps sagging skin. A PRP Facial is an excellent anti-aging treatment, with the benefits being greater when combined with microneedling. Those benefits include hyperpigmentation, scar reduction, minimizing sun damage, and reducing pore size.
What to Expect
A PRP facial typically takes about an hour. Initial redness will occur after the procedure and will fade away within one to three days. Some patients heal in as little as one day. It usually takes a few weeks to about one month to see the full benefits of this treatment.
