Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) for Skin Rejuvenation

PRP has a long history of being used in orthopedic medicine, dentistry,and reconstructive surgery, and now its benefits are being applied to other fields of medicine such as dermatology, skin wound healing, and cosmetic facial rejuvenation. Scientific studies dating back 30 years have documented that PRP grows new collagen when delivered into the skin, and newer studies show that PRP can soften sun damage, skin texture, and the signs of aging.

Yes, your fountain of youth lies within you. Your very own plasma helps address a bevy of skin issues, including but not limited to:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Rosacea
  • Acne scarring
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Elastosis
  • Dull, lifeless complexion

What is PRP

A small amount of blood is drawn from you and placed in a sterile tube that is spun down in a centrifuge to separate the different components of the blood. Red and white blood cells are divided from the platelets and the plasma (the clear fluid). This plasma contains a higher than normal number of platelets and is called platelet rich plasma (PRP). Platelets help tissue to heal and grow new cells. The PRP that is penetrated into the skin by way of microneedling, acts as a matrix that promotes your own collagen to grow as it regenerates tissue and increases blood flow to naturally smooth, tighten, brighten, and oxygenate the skin. The result? Softer, smoother, and more supple skin with increased elasticity and hydration levels.

PRP stimulates your own collagen to grow which promotes total facial rejuvenation, yielding long lasting results.  This treatment improves overall volume, fullness, and skin tone and acts to improve overall quality, tightness, and texture of the skin.

The goal of PRP skin rejuvenation therapy is to improve skin tone and texture, tighten skin, soften lines and pores. Results begin to show immediately and increase over time.  Initially, three treatment sessions are recommended at four weeks apart, to achieve the best outcome.  Maintenance is scheduled as needed following the first three treatments.
