PRP, WHAT IS IT?
PRP is produced from your own blood. Our nurse practitioners will obtain a small amount of blood from your arm by doing a blood draw. The blood will be spun briefly in a centrifuge to separate out a specific part of the blood called a “platelet”. Platelets contain growth factors, which are essential to speeding up the body’s natural healing process. These cells are then injected into the area of tissue damage, often with ultrasound to ensure accurate placement of the injection. The ultrasound is not painful.
HOW EFFECTIVE IS PRP?
PRP facial can benefit people with stretch marks, acne scars, traumatic injury scars, surgical scars, hyperpigmentation, and other types of poor skin texture or tone. Several days after getting a PRP facial, old skin cells give way to new, healthy ones, and you will be stunned by the unbelievable enhancement of the appearance of your skin.
PRP treatments use your body’s own Platelet Rich Plasma (“PRP”) to rejuvenate face and neck. Platelets are rich in growth factors, which essentially act as an energy boost for our skin. This allows our skin to function at its peak, improving everything from collagen to elastin, while at the same time providing antioxidant and hydrating properties. PRP is now commonly used topically as part of a regular facial, used along with micro-needling, to enhance penetration into the skin, and is even being injected into the skin in the same manner as dermal fillers.
Plasma is the internal essence of your own blood that contains life-sustaining proteins essential to healthy, beautiful skin. PRP treatments increase the flow of blood supply to the skin, helping to restore the flow of vital nutrients and bring out a daily glow. This cutting-edge, revolutionary treatment will take you back in time to a younger, fresher, healthier skin.
IS PRP SAFE?
Because the blood is your own, there is no risk that your body will reject the cells being injected. Also, the use of ultrasound to guide the needle helps to minimize the risk of unwanted needle trauma to nearby tissues. While the typical risks of any injection procedure still apply, including pain, bleeding, and infection, it is regarded as a very safe procedure.
