PRP INJECTIONS

Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy is a minimally invasive and non-surgical treatment that uses your body’s own enriched cells to promote natural skin renewal. Great alternative to filler for under the eyes. You should experience results, especially after your first treatment, for around 6 to 12 months. The results of PRP facial injections are typically visible within a few weeks and continue to improve over time.

How It Works

The process involves drawing the client’s own blood and running it through a centrifuge to draw out the plasma. Next, the PRP is either rubbed onto the surface of the face after a microneedling or microdermabrasion treatment or injected under the skin and begins the healing process._________________________________________________________________________________

Your blood contains platelets, which are packed with proteins called growth factors. These growth factors stimulate the production of new cells, blood vessels, collagen, and other substances needed for healthy skin and wound healing. Platelet-rich plasma, is blood plasma that contains more platelets than regular blood. With this higher concentration of platelets, PRP can be injected into the skin or other places in the body for medical purposes, such as facial rejuvenation, hair restoration, where it promotes the growth of new tissues and speeds healing. When PRP is used during microneedling treatment, the platelets penetrate the tiny wounds, where they go to work, boosting collagen production and growing fresh skin.

 
 

PRP is made from your own blood, which means it’s compatible with your body. It also means the procedure begins by drawing a small amount of blood from your arm. The blood is double spun to separate the platelets from the plasma. Then the extra platelets are added back to a small amount of your plasma to create the PRP that’s injected directly into your skin during treatment. This allows the healing platelets to reach the deepest layers of your skin. Once there, they can begin repair and revitalization of the skin from the inside out.

 
 

Optimal results in about 12 weeks, but you’ll begin to see a noticeable change within a few weeks, and collagen continues to grow.

 

Avoid blood thinners such as Aspirin, Advil, and Aleve.  Avoid sun exposure and tanning beds to treated areas 2 days prior to treatment (we recommend this indefinitely) and daily use of sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30 is always recommended.

 
 
 

You should expect your skin to be red for a few days, but you can wear makeup the next day to hide the redness. It takes a little time for your skin to produce collagen and to regenerate new tissues, even with PRP. Avoid sun exposure and tanning beds to treated areas 2 days after treatment (we recommend this indefinitely) and daily use of sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30 is always recommended.
