PRP (platelet rich plasma) therapy can produce a dramatic improvement in skin quality, firmness, and glow. PRP has long been used in the medical field for wound healing, repairing tissue damage and is known to be an effective regenerative treatment for arthritis, tendonitis, and strains. When injected into the facial skin, PRP triggers the natural regenerative processes to restore skin quality.
What are PRP Injections?
A PRP injection treatment is a simple three-step process of drawing blood from the patient, processing the blood to separate the platelets, and then injecting the platelet rich plasma into the area needing regeneration and rejuvenation. PRP can produce a dramatic improvement in hair growth when injected into the scalp to trigger hair growth. When injected into the facial skin, PRP stimulates natural skin regeneration for a beautiful, natural rejuvenation becoming visible over the weeks and months ahead.
Benefits of Facial PRP Injections:
- Smooths fine lines, wrinkles, and folds
- Regenerates skin from within
- Reduces redness and acne scars
- Enhanced, more even skin tone
- Increased hydration
- Increased collagen production
How Do PRP Injections Work?
Platelets are the part of the blood associated with healing of wounds and repairing of damaged cells and tissue. Platelet rich plasma (PRP) separates these cells from the rest of the blood for a concentrated formula of platelets to trigger the regeneration of skin cells. As tissue is more rapidly restored, it also aids in producing more collagen for younger, firmer, more supple facial skin.
PRP Facial Rejuvenation: Restore the Glow from Within
Young people have noticeably firm, supple skin that appears fresh and glowing – the result of the high quantities of collagen and elastin in youthful skin. To trigger your skin to once again produce higher volumes of firming collagen, PRP facial rejuvenation treatments can produce a remarkable improvement.
What Can I Expect
After the blood is drawn and processed to separate the platelet rich plasma, the PRP is then injected back into the targeted areas using a small needle, similar those used to inject dermal fillers. The process takes less than an hour and involves very little discomfort.
Recovery from PRP injections is immediate and most patients continue on with their day after the treatment. Patients may experience redness or pinprick bleeding at the injection site.
Results from our NYC PRP injection treatment such as increased hydration and more even skin tone will begin to appear at about three to four weeks. Improvements in volume will become more noticeable around four to six weeks and continue for several months as natural collagen regenerates. To achieve optimal results in skin regeneration, two more treatments spaced four to eight weeks apart may be advised.
Since PRP is a product extracted patient’s own blood, there is almost no risk of an allergic reaction or any side effects from treatment. You may experience minor irritation, inflammation, or bruising at the injection site that will disappear within 24 to 48 hours.
Who is a Good Candidate for PRP Injection Therapy?
PRP injection therapy can be an excellent skin rejuvenation treatment for fine lines, wrinkles, uneven skin tone, acne scars, and loss of volume. As the years pass, natural collagen production within the skin slows, leading to sagging, lax skin, and loss of volume. PRP injections stimulate collagen production deep within the skin structure to restore skin quality in a natural way. For those looking for a natural look that continues improving with time, PRP injection therapy can work wonders.
As there is very little risk of an allergic reaction and the procedure is quick and relatively painless, PRP injection treatment has a swift recovery and long-lasting results.
