What is PRP?
Platelet-Rich Plasma, or PRP for short, is an all-natural treatment that can smoothen fine lines and wrinkles in the skin. PRP is a solution created in and withdrawn from the patient’s very own blood. This safe and effective formula contains special growth properties that can repair aged or damaged skin at a cellular level.
We also supplement our PRP treatments with our micro-needling and ALMI procedures. Consult with our plastic surgeons to learn more!
What can be expected from the PRP treatment process?
At the start of your PRP treatment, a small blood sample will be taken, similar to an ordinary doctor’s visit. This sample will be spun in a centrifuge for several minutes. While the sample is spinning, components that make up the blood will separate. Blood plasma will combine itself with several other growth factors, resulting in the creation of PRP. The PRP will then be removed from the blood sample and administered into the designated treatment area. Regenerative properties of the PRP solution will start to influence the restoration of damaged skin cells, resulting in smoother and younger-looking skin.
Is PRP a safe treatment?
Administration of PRP into the body is completely safe. Since the PRP solution is created within a sample of the patient’s own blood, there is no potential danger of experiencing an allergic reaction or intense side effects.
