What is PRP?
PRP treatment uses plasma injections with a high concentration of healing platelets to rejuvenate the face and improve signs of aging. The platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is harvested from your own blood, which will be drawn from your arm. The high concentration of platelets stimulates collagen production and stem cells that assist in wound healing and cell regeneration. By injecting pure PRP directly into the skin, cells will regenerate quicker and fill in facial lines, folds, and wrinkles.
Patients who have an active infection or certain skin or blood disorders may not be a candidate for this treatment. You should also not be currently pregnant, breastfeeding, or taking corticosteroid injections. Ideal candidates are in good health and want to reduce signs of aging.
The first step in your PRP treatment is to draw your blood and then place the vial into a centrifuge where it will be spun to separate the red blood cells from the platelets/PRP. PRP will then be injected into your skin or can be combined with a SkinPen microneedling treatment to administer the healing platelets deep into the layers of the skin. Injected PRP directly into the body allows body tissues to fully absorb the platelets and benefit from their anti-aging properties.
There is no downtime, but you may experience slight swelling, redness, and bruising after treatment. Most people heal within 2-4 days. PRP stimulates your body’s natural collagen production, so results take time to develop. You should start to see results in a few weeks, but complete results can take up to 3 months to develop.
