PRP (PLATELET-RICH PLASMA)

FACIAL REJUVENATION THERAPY

PRP therapy is used in skin rejuvenation for individuals looking for a gradual but noticeable improvement in facial volume and/or skin texture, tone and color with minimal downtime.

The procedure involves either injecting or topically applying your own platelets to stimulate collagen formation.  “Growth factors” contained in platelets activate and rejuvenate cells in our body. When platelets are used for the cosmetic treatment of the face, arms, and neck, the body is tricked into triggering the production of collagen, which gives your skin a smoother, fuller appearance.

People who what to add volume to their skin, reduce fine lines, and/or improve their skin texture are excellent candidates for PRP therapy. 

 

The PRP Facelift uses platelet –rich plasma (PRP), along with dermal fillers to shape the face, improve facial volume, and stimulate collagen formation for longer lasting results. A small blood sample is taken then carefully separated into an injectable plasma, rich in platelets. Once the serum is prepared, it is injected into the problem area along with the dermal filler. Minimal downtime is seen. Patients may experience temporary swelling, bruising and/or redness.

 

The PRP Facial  uses platelet-rich plasma (PRP) in conjunction with microneedling to improve skin texture, tone, and discoloration. “Growth factors” contained in platelets activate and rejuvenate cells in our body. When platelets are used for the cosmetic treatment of the face, arms, and neck, the body is tricked into triggering the production of collagen, which gives your skin a smoother appearance.

A small blood sample is taken then carefully separated into plasma serum rich in platelets. Once the serum is prepared, it is then applied topically to the problem area and a microneedling device is used to push the serum into the skin at various depths. Minimal downtime is expected.  Patients typically experience 2-4 days of skin redness, mild swelling.

The results of PRP therapy are not as permanent as a surgical procedure, but you can still expect to see an improved appearance for up to 18 months depending on the patient and the treatments/products used. Patients typically start with a series of 2-4 treatments and then receive maintenance treatments as needed, typically 1-2 times a year.
