Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)
Platelet Rich Plasma to stimulate growth of collagen production
If you’d like to restore youthful fullness to your face, enjoy plumper lips, enhance shallow contours or soften those facial creases and wrinkles and increase stimulation of hair growth, injections of platelet rich plasma (PRP) may be the answer. Although PRP cannot help with loose sagging skin, it can stimulate growth of collagen production at a lower cost than surgery and without the downtime.
What is PRP?
PRP is a natural product created from your own body. We will take a small amount of your blood and spin it down in a centrifuge to obtain platelets which are cells in the blood that have the ability to heal tissue and grow new cells. It will then be injected into specific areas of the skin to promote growth of collagen to help smooth out fine lines and wrinkles as well as promote a more even skin tone and texture and promote hair growth. PRP treatments are available for facial rejuvenation and hair restoration.
Results begin within 3 to 4 weeks after treatment and continue to improve with time. These treatments are not permanent, however, and they should be completed as a series for optimal results.
Your provider will assess your needs and recommend one or a combination of treatments (microneedling, peels, fillers, wrinkle relaxers) to help achieve your desired results. During your consultation, your provider may recommend a blood panel to help determine if this procedure is optimal for you. It is recommended that to maintain and enhance the results of your treatment you use the products and/or prescriptions recommended by your provider.
