PRP Facial Injection Therapy
Platelet rich plasma injection therapy is an innovative method of facial rejuvenation that will help stimulate your body’s own collagen production, resulting in smoother, tighter skin tone and texture.
What is PRP Facial Injection Therapy
PRP is a high concentration of platelets surrounded by its own plasma. It contains fundamental protein growth factors that contribute to healing. This platelet rich plasma is used in aesthetics to regenerate the skin, improve texture and discoloration.
The PRP injections work differently than other cosmetic filler injections. The injections of the PRP work to stimulate cell turnover, increasing your own collagen and elastin, resulting in a natural, healthy skin appearance. By using the patient’s own blood there is virtually no risk of allergic reaction or rejection
What can PRP Facial Injection Therapy be used for?
Platelet Rich Plasma in aesthetics is used to regenerate the skin. It improves texture and discoloration. PRP has been used also in operating rooms for several decades to help with wound healing. The most common conditions for PRP therapy include:
- Fine wrinkles around the eyes
- Dark circles under the eyes
- Nasolabial folds
- Fine lines around the mouth
- Acne scars
- Volume loss
What to expect during and following PRP Facial Injection Therapy
The practitioner will draw an amount of blood similar to what is required for a basic lab test. Your blood will be spun in a centrifuge to separate the platelets from the other components of the blood.
Numbing cream may be applied to the face to help minimize the discomfort of the injections. Depending upon the area that is treated, injections take approximately 15-30 minutes. There is no recovery or down-time after the procedure. You may resume most of your daily activities.
Most injections are performed in a series of 2-3 sessions spaced about 1-2 months apart. Full results are seen 6 weeks after treatment with long lasting results, although patient’s can see a noticeable difference in skin texture and tone after only 3 weeks. Once desired effects are achieved, patients may need touch-up treatments once or twice a year.
