PRP speeds healing and has been used for years to help athletes recover from injuries and to repair tendons and joints.
A small amount of your blood is drawn and then with a centrifuge, the platelet rich plasma is extracted.
For the face, PRP can be used in addition to fillers to stimulate collagen production to improve the tone and texture of the skin.
Benefits of PRP
• Reduction of wrinkles and scars by thickening the dermis
• Healthier appearance – better tone and texture
• When used in conjunction with fillers, PRP prolongs and amplifies the filler effect, so that less filler can be used at each treatment
For optimal results and to decrease the chance of bruising, please avoid all blood thinning medications and herbal supplements for one week prior to your appointment.
Combination Therapy for Optimal Results — PRP Therapy stimulates your skin to grow new, younger tissue however; it does not prevent muscle movement or resurface the skin. Most patients see best results when combining their PRP facial treatments with other anti-aging procedures such as Botox, Hyaluronic Acid Fillers, etc.
Facial PRP Follow up Appointment — Most patients see improvement within two to four weeks with continued improvement for up to 12 weeks. If the desired level of correction has not been reached within 4-12 weeks then we recommend repeating the procedure at 4-12 week intervals until you achieve the result you desire.
PRP Facial Maintenance Treatments — The results of this treatment can last up to two years, but results vary and research documenting the longevity of results is ongoing. Maintenance treatments are recommended every six to 12 months.
