What Is PRP (PLATELET RICH PLASMA)?

When we age, our skin’s ability to produce collagen and maintain hydration becomes markedly diminished. Coupled with sun exposure and damaging lifestyle choices, our skin takes on further abuse. Non-invasive treatments like Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Serum and Injection Therapy have risen in popularity due to PRP’s natural result with no real downtime.

How does PRP Injection Therapy works?

Prior to treatment a blood sample is taken from the patient. This blood is immediately placed in the centrifuge which spins the blood and separates it into layers. The concentrated platelets (PRP) are extracted from the buffy coat layer for use in the treatment. The platelets are injected into the deep dermis or fat layer of the skin. The platelets will then gradually increase collagen formation which can increase skin thickness and overall health and function of the skin.

 

What to expect during treatment?

A small amount of blood is collected. The area to be treated with the PRP is pre-treated with laser, microneedling or other procedure if desired. The platelets are injected in using a fine needle and with minimal discomfort.

The areas that are treated include the face, neck, chest, arms, hands, abdomen, knees, glutes, scars and scalp/hair. The whole process including re-injecting platelets only takes 45 minutes. Results will not be visible for several weeks. For optimal results, a further treatment after 4-12 weeks may be recommended.

 

Post Treatment Care

Avoid massaging the treated area for up to 48 hours after treatment. Don’t wash the area until the morning after treatment. It is advisable that aggressive facials or any heat diffusing treatments like lasers should be avoided for the first month.

 

What To Expect from PRP Injection Therapy?

You can expect minimal swelling, bruising to a varying degree and redness for 12-24 hours. Some clients experience headache. Treated areas would be mildly red and swollen for up to 3 days after treatment. As the collagen grows, your results will gradually appear. The best results can be seen after the 6 weeks. Additional sessions may be necessary to achieve desired results.  We recommend sessions up to 3 times per year to maintain more youthful skin that has plumpness, elasticity, and strength.

PRP facial can be beneficial to people who have wrinkles, sun damage, or scars. By placing PRP back into the skin, cell proliferation is encouraged. This leads to an increase in elastin and collagen production. As a result, the skin will look tighter, fuller, and smoother.
