PRP is processed from your own blood and consists of a high concentration of platelets. A practitioner will perform a small blood draw and then your blood will be placed in a centrifuge to separate the platelets from the other components of your blood. Platelets are cells that promote the healing of tissue and new cell growth. By stimulating your body’s own collagen production and tissue regeneration, PRP acts to naturally tighten and smooth skin. By doing so, it can soften wrinkles and improve overall skin tone and texture. The process can be down through micro needling and subdermal injections.
The blood draw can be done in just a couple minutes, which is followed by a 10-minute centrifugation. During the preparation of PRP, your skin will be cleaned and prepared for the treatment. The overall process can be done in a short time, typically around 15 minutes. You may feel mild discomfort although the overall treatment is relatively painless and requires no downtime. Some patients may experience mild swelling, redness or bruising, which will typically fade in 1-3 days.
PRP can be combined with various other treatments including laser therapy, fillers, injectables and chemical peels. Through a comprehensive consultation, we can recommend a treatment plan that makes sense for your unique skin conditions and concerns.
