Tired of being let down by every lotion, potion, and too-good-to-be-true spa service you’ve tried in your search for a more youthful appearance? Hint: the secret to sensational skin isn’t buried inside a bottle—it’s inside you. Unleash it with Platelet Rich Plasma Rejuvenation.
This cutting-edge, professional treatment harnesses the powerful healing and regenerative properties of your body’s own blood platelets—small fragments of cells that are critical in repair and healing—to reverse the ravages of time and provide an effective (and 100% natural) weapon in the war on aging. It’s like finding your very own fountain of youth!
How it works
A small sample of your own blood is extracted and run through a centrifuge to extract its platelet rich plasma (PRP) and then safely injected into facial folds, wrinkles, and other areas where aged, damaged skin is present. This not only adds instant volume to sagging areas of the face (much like Juvederm or Restylane does), but also boosts your cells’ natural ability to heal and regenerate. The result is glowing, more youthful appearance.
What problem areas are appropriate for Platelet Rich Plasma Rejuvenation?
The healing properties of the blood components in PRP can be used as a cosmetic treatment for the following:
- Reducing fine lines and wrinkles
- Tightening and toning skin
- Mild collagen and volume loss
- Crow’s feet and dark under eye circles
- Acne scarring
Are the injections painful? What about recovery time?
Platelet Rich Plasma Rejuvenation injections are administered gently and are virtually pain-free (numbing agents are optional for particularly pain-sensitive patients). While there is no downtime, some patients may experience redness around the injection site (similar to a sunburn) that can last for 2-3 days.
How quickly will I see results? How long will they last?
Within a few weeks of treatment, an overall improvement in skin hydration, texture and tone can be seen. New collagen and blood vessels begin to grow after three to six weeks, and reduction of fine lines and wrinkles and volume correction happens over the next three to six months. The effects of cosmetic PRP can last 12 months to two years, depending on the individual.
Can a PRP treatment be combined with other procedures?
Absolutely! We also use PRP superficially, incorporating it into collagen induction treatments (CIT) to immediately minimize fine lines and wrinkles, soften the appearance of scars and dark pigmentation, and boost sallow, damaged skin.
