At some point we look in the mirror and suddenly see fine lines and wrinkles appearing. If that sounds familiar but you don’t like the idea of invasive surgery, then Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy (PRP) might be just the treatment for you.
Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy (PRP) is the ultimate skin rejuvenation treatment! The non-invasive procedure combines Hyaluronic Acid fillers and platelet-rich plasma from your own blood to smooth out your skin texture, soften fine lines and wrinkles, increase collagen and volume, and give you back your youthful glow.
How the Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy Works
Step 1: Customized Facial Contouring
The first thing we’ll do is strategically inject you with a Hyaluronic Acid dermal filler such as Juvederm to enhance the contours of your face. This is not a one-size-fits-all procedure. Your injections will be customized to restore the youthful shape of your face and give you a natural-looking result.
Step 2: Preparation of Platelet Rich Plasma
We will draw off a small vial of your blood and then place it in a special centrifuge machine that separates the plasma from the blood cells. This plasma, which we call platelet rich plasma (PRP), contains a number of growth factors that stimulate collagen synthesis and promote skin renewal, cell growth, and tissue regeneration.
Step 3: Prep & Treatment
Next, we will prep you for treatment by applying a numbing cream. After your skin is numb, we will use a very small needle to inject the PRP into the skin on your face. The growth factors contained in the platelets will activate the collagen producing cells in your skin, resulting in new collagen growth and improved blood flow.
Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy (PRP) is an outstanding skin rejuvenation procedure, resulting in increased volume, softened fine lines and wrinkles, and more youthful skin texture and tone. Although you may begin notice changes within a week or so of your procedure, the effects will continue to improve for two to three months and can last for up to two years!
