Platelet Rich Plasma, or PRP injections, are the latest in revolutionary treatment trends. PRP injections accelerate the healing process by using your own body’s natural occurring healing cells to promote healing from within. These treatments can be used as a stand-alone treatment or can be combined with other treatments to speed up the healing process in a natural and safe way.
What Is PRP Skin Rejuvenation?
Your blood platelets contain chemical compositions that react with oxygen. This is why a clot forms on the surface of your skin when you have a cut or a scrape. The platelets also act as the first nutrient source for the creation of new tissue.
Platelet Rich Plasma, or PRP skin rejuvenation, is a natural product created from your own body. A small amount of blood is drawn and placed into a sterile tube that is then spun down into a centrifuge to separate the different components of the drawn blood. Red and white blood cells are divided from the platelets and the plasma, which is a clear fluid found inside the blood. This plasma now contains a higher than normal number of platelets and when concentrated, platelets in the plasma can actually work as a signal to heal the body.
Combining PRP With Other Treatments
Once injected, PRP begins to accelerate the healing process immediately and the introduction of concentrated platelets kickstarts a tissue creation process, replacing damaged cells with healthier ones.
PRP can be combined with the following treatments to shorten recovery times:
With dermal fillers, patients don’t need to resort to surgery to make a big difference in reducing the appearance of deep skin folds. Using hydrating formulas similar to those found naturally within our own skin, dermal fillers enhance patients’ looks and face distracting lines, leaving you with a more youthful appearance.
Radiance Medspa offers a broad spectrum of fillers to accommodate all of our patients including:
Microneedling with PRP Infusion
This therapy is a minimally invasive skin rejuvenation treatment with a quick recovery time and is designed to stimulate the body’s natural collagen production. Treatment involves the use of two procedures, microneedling and PRP, done consecutively. Also known as Collagen Induction Therapy, or even the Vampire Facial, this treatment is ideal for:
- Acne scars
- Surgical scars
- Stretch marks
- Wrinkles and fine lines
- Skin laxity
- Sun damage
- Large pores
- Uneven skin texture
The Silhouette InstaLift is done by using threads that contain absorbable sutures and trumpet-shaped cones that are configured to grab and engage tissue. This allows the sutures to create a lifting and volumizing effect. These threads can be placed in various areas, but are ideal for:
- Facial lifting
- Volumizing effects in the cheeks
- Corners of the mouth
- Improving skin laxity
The Difference in PRP Therapy Treatments
PRP works by stimulating your own natural collagen to grow for total facial rejuvenation rather than individual wrinkle improvement. Working to fill in areas where hyaluronic acid fillers cannot reach or are not safe to use, PRP acts to improve overall quality, tightness, and texture of the skin rather than filling wrinkles individually.
PRP is used to:
- Plump out cheek indentations
- Soften under eye hollows
- Improve skin tone
- Restore skin tightness
- Restore skin texture
- Give patients a more youthful looking appearance
Whether used as a stand-alone treatment or combined with other treatments to speed up healing time, PRP is the best way to use your body’s own natural resources to rejuvenate and heal your skin.
