Is your skin looking less than its best because of problems like hyperpigmentation, scars, stretch marks, or wrinkles? Problems like these can be effectively treated using a new type of treatment called PRP therapy. It combines a blood product created from the patient’s own blood with a microneedling procedure and can also be performed using injections.
What is PRP?
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a type of blood serum that we create using your own blood. The serum contains a wealth of growth factors due to a large presence of blood platelets in it. These growth factors help to dramatically speed up the healing process for skin affected by problems like sun damage and signs of aging.
What Should I Expect from My PRP Therapy?
Once the PRP serum is ready, we will apply it by injecting it into the specific areas of the face that need rejuvenation. This is usually areas that commonly experience wrinkles, such as around the mouth, forehead, and near the eyes. After PRP is injected, it will help to gradually remodel the epidermis layer of your skin to improve its texture and appearance.
What Happens After My Treatment?
You should begin noticing improvements in the condition of your skin in about three weeks after your treatment. This delay is due to the time that the injected growth factors need to work on your skin. The PRP product will gradually improve your skin tone and texture over the following weeks and months. Newly created skin will develop new blood vessels to deliver nutrients and remove toxins. The result is a more youthful and vibrant look.
You may need multiple PRP therapy treatments to achieve optimal results. Patients often undergo the treatment monthly for the first three or four months to obtain maximum results. After that, a session once or twice a year may be advised, depending upon your results.
