PRP or Platelet-rich plasma utilizes the patient’s blood, which is then prepared in a centrifuge to acquire a concentrated form of serum containing growth factors necessary to help stimulate collagen production and help regrow the skin and tissues to appear more voluminous, glowing, and beautiful than ever.
We offer PRP Treatments both with and without microneedling!
Frequently Asked Questions
Platelet-rich plasma contains two elements found within the blood. These elements are plasma, also known as the liquid portion of the blood, and platelets, a type of blood cell found alongside red and white blood cells. Platelets play an essential role in healing the body and are well known for their clotting abilities. However, some studies have shown that platelets also contain growth factors that trigger tissue regeneration and cell production. Platelet-rich plasma is the prepared and concentrated form of your own serum.
When platelet-rich plasma is created from a patient’s blood sample, the treatment focuses on injecting the plasma into the targeted area. The treatment helps increase specific growth factors to accelerate the healing process by injecting them into the desired area. While PRP treatments are often used for musculoskeletal injuries and post-surgical healing, the benefits of this treatment have also shown that it can be used for cosmetic treatments, especially skin rejuvenation.
You may be a candidate for a platelet-rich plasma treatment if you experience problems such as acne scars, skin discoloration, and poor skin volume. Call our office today to determine if PRP treatments are right for you.
Our PRP treatments only take a few minutes to complete. Your blood will be drawn by one of our licensed medical providers, and the platelets extracted using a centrifuge during your procedure. Then after applying local anesthesia to the targeted areas, your licensed and qualified provider will utilize the plasma beneath the skin to promote skin growth and healing.
Results vary from patient to patient, but people who undergo platelet-rich plasma injections often find their skin brighter, smoother, tighter, and more rejuvenated shortly after treatment. These results improve over several weeks and can last up to a year or more.
Retreatments may be necessary to see long-term results. For more information, our provider will discuss whether PRP treatment is right for you.
