PRP stands for Platelet Rich Plasma—it is simply blood plasma enriched with platelets. So what is it used for and how can it improve your appearance?
How do PRP treatments work?
If you choose Platelet Rich Plasma(PRP) treatments, the doctor will draw some of your blood to be evaluated in the lab. The blood will be put in a centrifuge to separate it into components.
Next, the blood is activated in order to release the proteins and growth factors that make treatments successful.
When the blood is prepared, it is injected into the specific area that is being treated. The injection process is similar to the administration of dermal fillers—however PRP treatments are not used as a replacement for dermal fillers—instead they are used to improve the health and appearance of the skin.
What can PRP be used for?
PRP is usually used as an injectable to stimulate collagen production and improve healing. It can also be used as a topical treatment to complement Micropen treatments and or Fractional Laser Resurfacing treatments.
What are the benefits of using PRP?
Platelet Rich Plasma treatments come with many benefits. Some of these benefits include:
- PRP stimulates the production of collagen, which helps keep the skin looking younger and firmer.
- PRP treatments help to heal damaged tissue and encourage the production of new healthy cells.
- PRP comes from your body, so it is safe and patients don’t have to worry about having an allergic reaction to the treatment.
- PRP treatments can result in thicker skin. This gradually reduces the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines
If you’re looking for a safe, subtle, natural way to look younger and healthier, PRP treatments can be used on their own or combined with other cosmetic procedures to improve results. Schedule a consultation with Dr. Nowak to learn more about this treatment.
