PRP or Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy turns back the hands of time for aging skin. Imagine having younger looking skin with better tone and texture; sounds pretty good right? The treatment uses the body’s own natural healing processes, which makes it gentler on the body than other injectables and fillers.
Certain areas on our bodies age quicker than others. Thank the Southwest Florida sun for the damage it inflects on our exposed skin, often making us appear much older than we are. PRP reverses the common aging signs in the skin specifically in the areas of the face, neck, hands.
Hate those crow’s feet or dark circles under your eyes? PRP helps make those areas of your skin become a distant memory.
So how does PRP Therapy work?
Do not get squeamish, but PRP Therapy uses your own blood. The treatment involves putting a portion of your blood in a centrifuge until it contains a concentrated mix of plasma cells and growth factors. The resulting plasma gets injected directly into the injured tissue. The growth factors speed healing and improve tissue health.
The treatment takes approximately 30 minutes to an hour, though treatment time varies depending on the area treated. After treatment, skin may show some redness or bruising for a day or two. You can resume normal activities and makeup use the day after treatment.
It has an advantage over other treatments due to its natural quality. And because it uses a patient’s own blood, the patient will not experience allergic reactions. Other fillers get absorbed by the body and need repeat treatments. However, PRP stimulates the body’s own natural healing processes, so the results last longer. Due to using natural components, patients can use PRP Therapy in places where other fillers would not be recommended. It does not target individual lines and wrinkles but rather improves the overall quality of an area.
Thin areas under our eyes and the skin on our neck show dramatic improvement with PRP Therapy, reversing signs of aging. Lines on the upper lips, as seen on many smokers, improve in depth and hydration. Wrinkles experience volume augmentation and long-lasting collagen regeneration effects. Additionally, it enhances the texture and vitality of your skin by creating new blood vessels. Newly created vessels provide vital nutrients to the skin.
