Getting older cannot be avoided, and sometimes neither can the natural signs that come along with it. It can be frustrating to look in the mirror and see unwanted wrinkles and lines. However, there is a treatment that is as unique as you are! PRP procedures could help you restore your youthful appearance, and our team of experts utilizes your what’s unique about you to perform the procedure.
The History of PRP Procedures
After decades of intensive research, doctors discovered that certain molecules inside your blood have the ability to trigger the body’s natural healing response, and platelet-rich plasma, or PRP, can be used to address skin damage as well. Instead of injecting the PRP deep into the soft tissue, it is administered just below the skin to trigger the healing response.
Our team will use the platelets found in your own blood to create a personalized treatment to minimize the appearance of issues such as acne scars, fine lines, wrinkles and discoloration. PRP procedures can also be combined with other fillers and resurfacing treatments to completely revitalize your skin.
Treatment Sites and Treatable Blemishes
Most cosmetic PRP procedures are carried out on areas like the face, neck or chest. It is a popular option for age-related blemishes like hollow cheeks, fine lines near the mouth, deep wrinkles on the neck, and sunspots. PRP therapy creates long-term results because it “tricks” the patient’s body into flooding the treatment site with collagen, elastin, and a variety of other vital compounds. As time goes on, your blemishes and imperfections will disappear as your skin naturally heals itself, even if it wasn’t necessarily damaged from the start. While results of PRP procedures are not permanent and vary based on procedure type, they have the potential to last for two years depending on the treatment type.
Other Benefits of PRP Therapy
With PRP therapy, our team of medical professionals will use molecules that are already found in your blood for your treatment, but your body won’t build a tolerance to the treatment over time. You can also schedule follow-up appointments to maintain the results to ensure you’re always looking and feeling your best.
