What is Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)?

Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy (PRP) is the newest "best thing" in Aesthetic Medicine. We use your own highly concentrated platelet containing plasma to produce results. PRP comprises hundreds of bioactive proteins, including growth factors, peptides, and cytokines that stimulate healing, renewal and cellular growth of skin and soft tissues. Best of all...there is no risk of allergic reaction! PRP can be used along with Collagen Induction Therapy to maximize results, as an injection if you are unsure or do not want to use synthetic dermal fillers, and as a hair restoration technique for both men and women. Maximum results take up to 3 months to appear. Individual results vary from client to client. Schedule an appointment or consult today.

Who is a good candidate for PRP?

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy is a popular facial rejuvenation option for many patients because it has quick treatment sessions, brings long-lasting results and requires little to no downtime. You’re a good candidate for the PRP facial if you have an uneven skin tone, acne scars, hyperpigmentation, fine lines, wrinkles and other signs of aging. The reduction of collagen levels in the skin leads to the formation of these signs of aging. A PRP facial combined with other cosmetic treatments such as collagen induction therapy works by stimulating the body’s production of new collagen. Your health also determines whether a PRP facial is right for you. This therapy may not be recommended if you have medical conditions that could worsen with platelet-rich plasma injections, such as an active infection. Patients with some blood and bleeding disorders or anemia are also advised to refrain from this facial rejuvenation therapy. You are not a good candidate if you are a smoker because nicotine from cigarettes increases blood pressure and lowers platelets. You should also avoid platelet-rich plasma injections if you are an alcoholic because alcohol diminishes your body’s capacity to release stem cells. A PRP facial treatment might cause some complications if you are taking corticosteroid medications or some anti-inflammatory medications. You must refrain from using any form of these medications for up to one month before and after your treatment. Call us with any questions. If you’re a pregnant or breastfeeding woman interested in undergoing PRP therapy, it’s best to wait until after you’ve had your baby or finished breastfeeding.

What are the benefits of PRP?

The benefits of PRP are:

1. Increased Collagen Production

Whether you’re dismayed by fine lines, moderate wrinkles or severe folds or you have other visible skin issues, there’s an excellent chance that a PRP facial will enhance the quality of your skin through increased collagen production. Collagen production is stimulated when skin cell trauma occurs. This occurs during a vampire facial when the minuscule needles penetrate the upper layers of your skin during the collagen induction therapy portion of your treatment.

As soon as your skin is penetrated, existing collagen starts to heal the skin. At the same time, your body starts to grow new, stronger, healthier collagen. This higher quality collagen takes a couple weeks to grow. However, you will notice immediate skin tightening. You’ll just notice that the results of your treatment continue to improve for several weeks after treatment.

2. Reduced Fine Lines and Wrinkles

Lines and wrinkles are among the most common reasons people seek a PRP facial. These common signs of aging are treated as cellular turnover is promoted. Old skin cells are recycled and new skin cells, collagen and elastin are formed. Fine lines and wrinkles are eliminated in part as your facial skin tightens naturally in response to the micro-injuries produced by treatment. The appearance of deeper folds is also diminished as hollow areas of your face are plumped up.

3. Tighter, Firmer Skin

As stated previously, collagen is also essential for tight, firm skin. As you age, your skin starts to sag, but wrinkles and lines don’t always form. Facial skin often thins with age, and certain parts of the face, like the lips and cheeks, are likely to become noticeably thin and gaunt. Collagen plumps up the skin. Some people may use a PRP facial to plump up their lips. Others use it to re-contour their cheeks without the need for an invasive medical procedure.

4. Improved Moisture Retention

The stronger and thicker your skin is, the better protected the deeper layers of your skin are from outside irritants. A strong skin barrier also helps to retain moisture. Moreover, it helps to unclog your pores, making your skin more receptive to prescription moisturizers. The effects of a PRP facial on pores are a little confusing because treatment can actually reduce the appearance of pores. However, you can actually benefit from the reduced appearance of pores and unclogged pores, making it easier to absorb prescription medications for the purpose of beauty enhancement.

5. Enhanced Skin Tone and Texture

If you have acne scars, surgical scars, scars from traumatic injury, stretch marks, hyperpigmentation and other forms of poor skin tone or texture, you can benefit from a facial enhanced with PRP. With old skin cells giving birth to new, healthy ones, you will be astounded by the mind-blowing improvement in the appearance of your skin just a few short days after one PRP facial.

6. It Doesn’t Hurt

Before your PRP facial begins, your facial skin is gently yet thoroughly cleansed. This ensures there is no dirt, dust, pollen, pollutant, makeup or any other imperfection on your skin that could cause a negative reaction to treatment. Once your personal skin care professional has sanitized your face, she will apply a local anesthetic to the treatment site. It’s true that the thin, delicate skin around your eyes, hairline and mouth is extremely sensitive. Yet while you may feel the treatment being applied, but you will not feel any pain or discomfort.

Even better, it is perfectly safe for you to take aspirin before or after treatment to mitigate the risk of any post-treatment pain. You can also ice the treatment sites to speed the cellular rejuvenation process.

7. Treatment Is Over Quickly

The PRP process may seem like it would take a while. First, your blood has to be drawn into syringes. Then, it has to be placed into a centrifuge and processed. This processing involves cleaning the blood so it is ready for transfer and injection and separating the components of your blood by mass. It doesn’t take long at all to draw your blood. Then, it only takes three to five minutes to run your blood through the centrifuge. Finally, the therapy itself only takes between 20 and 60 minutes depending on the size and number of the areas you are trying to treat.

8. Lasting Results

Some anti-aging treatments last only a week or two before you need to receive them again. Contrastingly, you only need to get a PRP facial every year or two to retain your youthful look. Even better, you need fewer treatments with a PRP facial than traditional microneedling to achieve your ideal aesthetic.

While you may need four 30 minute microneedling treatments, which each require an additional half hour of waiting for the anesthetic to start working, you will only need half the number of treatments to get the same results with a PRP facial.

Skin rejuvenation typically takes three to four treatments, and each of these treatment sessions needs to be spaced four to eight weeks apart. With collagen induction therapy enhanced by PRP, you only need five sessions to drastically enhance the appearance of keloid scars. Acne scars can be healed in two to four treatment sessions.

How does PRP work?

A Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) facial works by drawing a minimal amount of blood and separating out your own platelet-rich plasma. Platelet Rich Plasma, is blood that contains a higher concentration of Platelets and growth factors than normal blood. These substances stimulate stem cells to produce collagen and blood vessels. For separation of platelet-rich plasma the use of a specific filter and a centrifuge achieves a high platelet recovery rate and allows preparation of plasma containing 6-10 times as many platelets as the common one. First, blood from the patient is collected. Second a a specific filter and a centrifuge are used to prepare PRP . Patient blood is placed in a centrifuge and spun in order to separate the blood from the growth factors, platelets and stem cells. Last PRP with autologous white blood cells is then micro-injected in areas of the face where signs of aging have appeared. Platelets and white blood cells exert a synergistic effect, resulting in the release of a variety of growth factors at the injection sites. This promotes the production of collagen and hyaluronic acid and wound healing, leading to improvement of symptoms such as wrinkles. This is an unique and natural procedure as you use your own blood – hypo allergenic. thus poses no risk of infection or allergy, It has the advantage of a longer duration of efficacy compared with injection of hyaluronic acid and collagen that are absorbed into the body.

What should I expect before and after my PRP treatment?

​Before your PRP treatment begins, you will have a topical numbing cream applied to the treatment area. While the cream activates, 2–4 tablespoons of blood will be drawn from your arm so that your PRP may be extracted for your facial. Once your face is numb, your licensed clinician will gently glide the Microneedle Pen over your face. Next, the serum and your PRP are applied to your face. Patients can expect some immediate results, while some results take longer as your face is renewed with collagen and elastin.

We recommend patients refrain from applying makeup and exercising for 24 hours after their procedure to allow the skin to heal. Your skin may be red after treatment and take several days to fully heal.

Minor bruising or swelling will last about a week if the procedure is performed alone. Most

patients look presentable and return to work in 2-3 days.

Patient will experience a natural change in the operative site and minimal discomfort because beneficial effects gradually occur after about 4-8 weeks of therapy, approx is 9 to 24 months.
