Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)

PLATELET RICH PLASMA (PRP) FOR FACIAL REJUVENATION

Platelet Rich Plasma, or PRP, is the single most natural method for facial rejuvenation in the aesthetic industry. PRP contains your body’s own growth factors, or platelets, which instruct your body to create new collagen, thus, creating tighter, smoother, plumper skin, minimizing fine lines and wrinkles.

What is PRP Skin Rejuvenation?

Platelets are the cells in the blood that help tissue to heal and grow new cells. The PRP, injected into specific areas of the skin, act as a matrix that promotes your own collagen to grow, regenerates tissue, and thus acts as to naturally smooth and tighten the skin. In this way, PRP softens wrinkles and creating smoother skin texture and tone.

What Conditions Can Be Treated With PLATELET RICH PLASMA (PRP)?

MILD TO MODERATE ACNE SCARRING; ANY NEW OR OLD SCARS

FINE LINES & WRINKLES

DARK UNDER EYE CIRCLES AND VOLUME LOSS

Frequently Asked Questions About PLATELET RICH PLASMA (PRP)

  • How does PRP work?

    PRP is an innovative therapy that is now gaining more popularity. The procedure entails drawing blood from a patient and then spinning it in a centrifuge machine. This generates a layer of concentrated platelets and growth factors, or stem cells, that help regenerate new collagen formation in areas where we have volume loss.

  • What does the procedure involve?

    A small amount of blood will be drawn from you. While the PRP is being prepared in the centrifuge, your skin will be cleansed and prepared for the treatment. The injections take 30-40 minutes , and are only mildly uncomfortable. The procedure is relatively painless, and requires no post procedure care or time off from daily events. Mild swelling, redness, or bruising fade within 1-3 days. The PRP is made from your own cells, virtually eliminating the possibility of negative side effects.

  • What will I look like after my treatment?

    Most people will experience mild redness or swelling lasting only 6-24 hours and there may be minimal pin-point bleeding and/or bruising. Within a week or two, you will notice that your skin is smoother and more radiant looking but the full effects won’t be seen until a few months later.

  • What is the down time after PRP injections?

    The inflammatory reaction of the skin is extremely short and fades significantly within hours from redness to pinkish that may last for 12 to 48 hours. In order to reduce visible redness, we recommend hyaluronic acid after the procedure, and to protect the skin with zinc based sunblock. The use of mineral makeup is recommended after procedure.

  • Are PRP injections painful?

    Prior to the treatment, numbing cream can be applied, if necessary, to minimize any discomfort that is felt during the procedure.

  • Can PRP injections be performed on any skin color?

    PRP injections are safe to use on all skin types and all skin colors. There is no risk of post-inflammatory hyper-pigmentation.

  • How many treatments do I need and how often can PRP injections be repeated?

    PRP injections are best performed once a month and a three treatment protocol is advised for optimal results.

  • Risks of post-op infections?

    Since the tiny injection channels close within one hour, and provided the procedure is done under clinical conditions, post-op infections are extremely unlikely.

  • What should I avoid on my skin after treatment?

    To ensure the right healing environment, for 2-3 days do not use AHA’s (glycolic Acid), retinol, acidic or “active” ingredients. Exposure to sun should also be avoided or zinc based sunblock should be used.

  • What are the side effects of the PRP injections?

    There are virtually no negative side effects, and none have ever been reported in over 150,000 procedures performed worldwide.

  • Am I a candidate for PRP Injections?

    PRP injections can be safely performed on all skin types and all skin colors. As the epidermis and in particular, melanocytes in the basal area are left intact. There is minimal risk of pigment change or post inflammatory hyper-pigmentation. PRP can treat sensitive and fragile areas that are difficult to treat with other procedures. These areas include the eyes, the neck and the back of the hands.

    However, it is not suitable for patients who:

    -Have a used Accutane (isotretinoin) within the last three months

    -Have open wounds, cuts or abrasions on the skin

    -Have had radiation treatment to the skin within the last year

    -Have any kind of current skin infection, systemic health condition, or herpes simplex in the area to be treated

    -Are pregnant or breast feeding

    -Have any history of keloid or hypertrophic scars or poor wound healing

  • How much does the treatment cost?

    This is assessed during your complimentary consultation. Typically, treatments are $750 per session, depending on the induction therapy. A treatment is mapped out for each client and the cost can be assessed at this time. This is based on a client’s unique requirements and the result that is desired. PRP injections may be combined with other treatments as a package and the overall cost will be discussed during our complementary consultation.
