Though platelet-rich plasma (PRP) treatments were not invented originally for cosmetic use, the regenerative properties and wound healing abilities have made PRP incredibly popular for skin rejuvenation treatments, providing beautiful results either on its own or used alongside other treatments. Harnessing the natural healing powers provided by our own blood, PRP treatments involve using our own blood being drawn, and placed in a centrifuge to separate the platelets from the rest of the blood cells, allowing for the providers to be able to reinject that platelet-rich plasma back into our bodies. The platelet-rich plasma is incredibly effective at supporting the healing and trauma recovery processes in our bodies, which translates to supporting the skin in which it is reinjected to jumpstart a healing process, creating more collagen and elastin which is vital to maintaining youthful skin.
PRP treatment is a platelet-rich plasma skin rejuvenation treatment that uses your own blood to create platelet-rich plasma (PRP) that will then be reinjected back into the surface of your skin. This is a non-surgical procedure that harnesses the healing and growth properties present in PRP to reduce the appearance of scarring including acne or surgical scars, and hyperpigmentation, and will improve the overall tone and texture of the treated skin. PRP therapies were originally created to support quick recovery from injuries for athletes, where the potential was quickly realized as useful for cosmetic procedures such as treating hair loss and for its many benefits with skin care. The PRP is reinjected either with a syringe to treat specific spots or through the process of microneedling and has been shown to be incredibly effective in reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Since the plasma-rich platelets support natural healing and new tissue development, PRP treatments are commonly used to treat the neck and décolletage area to provide a youthful appearance to the treated skin. PRP injections are effective at reducing the appearance of loose and aging skin that starts to collect around the neck area as we age. Due to its anti-aging properties, PRP treatments on the neck, décolletage, face, and hands are all very effective and popular treatments that reverse the effects that aging has on the skin.
The results from just one PRP treatment are much longer lasting than other skin rejuvenation techniques available, lasting for closer to 1 to 2 years after each treatment. To get the most out of the treatments, many patients will opt to receive 2 to 3 treatments to reach their desired results, each around 6 to 8 weeks apart. Once the build-up treatments are complete, it is common for patients to receive a maintenance treatment annually to continue to stop and reverse the aging processes in their skin. Each treatment will continue to stimulate collagen and elastin production, ensuring that the youthful glow provided by PRP treatments is sustained. During the weeks, and often months following the treatments, the skin will continue to improve in appearance as the PRP continues to do its job underneath the skin, which is why the results are able to last as long as they do.
Platelet-rich plasma treatments are incredibly effective at reversing the appearance of aging in the facial skin. It is able to treat all concerns in the skin that are related to aging; fine lines and wrinkles, loss of volume to the skin, sagging, age/sun spots, and most other concerns. The treatments have also proven to be effective in helping reduce acne and the appearance of any scarring. The process works by using your body’s natural process for skin rejuvenation and the production of collagen and elastin in specifically treated areas to encourage the skin to appear smoother, tighter, and plumper. PRP treatments can be used either on their own or in tandem with another skin rejuvenation process as a means to help the skin heal faster and better from the other process. Other treatments that are often used alongside PRP include hyaluronic acid fillers, neuromodulators, microneedling, light therapies, radiofrequency therapies, and laser resurfacing, all of which PRP treatments will only help to support and boost the results.
