Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)

 

     We are excited to offer Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP), one of the newest treatments in Facial Aesthetics.  PRP is used to correct some of the most common facial aging concerns.  This procedure is for patients that want noticeable results but don't want to undergo invasive surgery.   PRP is a more natural alternative to fillers, as we use the patient's own platelets.

     PRP has been used in Orthopedic medicine for years but is relatively new in Cosmetic applications.  Platelet Rich Plasma is rich in platelets and growth factors, which are known to stimulate stem cells.  Stem Cells, in turn stimulate the growth of collagen to help the body heal and regenerate more quickly.  

     PRP is used in cosmetic medicine to improve skin texture, add volume to the face, and treat fine lines and wrinkles.  The procedure takes about an hour.  When the patient arrives, a small vial of blood is drawn.  The blood is then centrifuged down to separate the growth factors, platelets and stem cells from the rest of the blood.  This unique and concentrated mixture is then injected into the targeted areas, much like Botox and Fillers are injected.  

     There are very few side effects, because the injected substance is from the patient's own body.  The effects can last from 12-18 months or more, depending on the individual.  PRP is ideal for individuals who are looking for a gradual improvement in their skin's appearance and who want noticeable, natural looking results.
