Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy

What Is Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy?

Platelet rich plasma (PRP) therapy is a non-surgical cosmetic procedure that uses the growth factors in your own blood to reverse the effects of aging and help you get younger, firmer skin. 

How Does Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy Work?

 

First, a sample of your blood is taken. The blood sample is then placed in a centrifuge to separate the platelet-rich plasma from the red cells. The concentrated extract is injected all over your face through a process called micro-needling, which involves making superficial punctures on your face using small needles to administer the required amount of plasma. 

Once injected, the protein-rich plasma stimulates your skin cells to produce more collagen, which results in the formation of younger and supple-looking skin. 

How PRP Facial Can Rejuvenate Your Skin

 

The platelet cells in your blood play a vital role in injury healing and skin regeneration processes. For instance, when you cut yourself, the platelet cells arrest the bleeding by forming a clot. The growth factors present in the platelet cells boost the circulation in the injured area and stimulate the production of new skin cells. 

The same exact principle is applied in PRP therapy as well. When a concentrated extract of plasma, which is enriched with platelets, is injected into your skin, the growth factors present in the extract trigger the production of collagen. The increase in collagen production tends to smooth out the wrinkles and lines on your face and causes your skin to become firmer and plumper. 

The Benefits of PRP Facial

 

Enhances Your Appearance

PRP therapy can tighten your skin, smooth out fine lines, wrinkles, and acne scars, and improve your skin tone. It can make you look younger and healthier and enhance your overall appearance. 

No-Risk of Side Effects

The concentrated plasma used in PRP treatments in Coral Gables is extracted from your own blood. So, there is no risk of an infection, allergic reaction, or any other side effect. 

Not Painful

Prior to the procedure, a topical anesthetic is usually applied on your face. So, you will not feel any pain or discomfort during the micro-needling procedure. 

Long-Lasting Results

Depending on your skin condition, you might require anywhere from two to six sessions at two-week intervals. It can take two to four weeks for your skin to start showing signs of regeneration. 

The results of platelet rich plasma therapy tend to last up to two years. Ideally, you should undergo PRP treatment at least once a year to maintain your youthful appearance. 

Enhancing the Results of PRP Therapy

 

In case of extensive skin damage, the dermatologist might decide to treat you with dermal fillers and Botox shots in addition to PRP therapy. Dermal fillers can replenish lost volume while Botox can reduce the lines and wrinkles on your face.
