Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is a form of regenerative medicine that uses growth factors from your own plasma. These growth factors activate and stimulate regeneration by encouraging collagen production in your own skin. Combined with micro-channeling, PRP helps improve epidermal thickening and reverse volume loss from aging. It can be used to improve fine lines, wrinkles and circles and bags under the eyes. PRP also improves vertical lip lines, decreases nasolabial folds and helps reduce acne scarring.
What is the Platelet Rich Plasma procedure like?
A PRP treatment is minimally invasive. Your blood is drawn and then processed in a special centrifuge for separation. Topical numbing is applied to the treatment area, and the PRP is then injected and micro-needled into your skin. We’ll give you specific aftercare products for the first 4 days after treatment, and then you can resume your usual skincare routine. You’ll arrive an hour ahead of time for topical numbing to be applied, and the treatment itself will take about an hour.
What is the downtime of Platelet Rich Plasma?
Downtime depends on the depth of the micro-needling and any bruising that may occur from the injections. Many individuals who receive the treatment apply mineral powder makeup the following day and return to normal activities. Most skin appears completely normal by one week after treatment.
How long before I see results with Platelet Rich Plasma?
Many of our clients have started seeing results as early as 2 weeks after the treatment, but full results are not seen for 3 months. If you have 1-2 micro-needling sessions one month apart after the PRP, you’ll see enhanced improvement.
