Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy harnesses your own body’s healing abilities and regenerative properties (using key components from your own blood) to add volume, smooth lines, improve skin texture, and stimulate collagen production and elastin.
The growth factors in the PRP encourage your cells to regenerate, making this more of a natural style of cosmetic treatment. These growth factors activate your own adult stem cells in and under the skin, improving skin quality and overall appearance. Results improve over time.
How it works.
PRP Therapy is not a surgical procedure but a series of injections that are given while numbed using a topical cream, keeping the patient comfortable throughout the treatment. A vial or more (depending upon your specific needs) of your blood is drawn and spun in a centrifuge to separate out the “Buffy Coat” (White Blood Cells, Platelets and Plasma) which makes up the Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP). The PRP is gently injected (superficially, not deep) and sculpted into different areas of the face.
The practitioner can opt to use Hyaluronic Acid or Calcium-based Dermal Fillers to complete the look for added support, volume and collagen production. The whole procedure can take about an hour with little-to-no downtime. The results can last up to 2 years depending on your physiology.
