With platelet-rich plasma therapy, we can treat a wide variety of imperfections ranging from fine lines and wrinkles to large pores and uneven skin texture. This cutting-edge treatment requires absolutely no incisions, and most of our patients notice distinct improvements to their skin within weeks of the final appointment. Since PRP is made from the natural compounds in your own blood, you won’t have to worry about any unusual or unpleasant side effects after undergoing PRP treatment.
The Development of PRP
Many years ago, a team of doctors began using platelet-rich plasma to treat surgical scars. Following a procedure, the team would take a small amount of the patient’s blood and extract the platelet-rich plasma. That plasma was then injected back into the patient’s skin near the incisions. The PRP would stimulate the body’s healing response so that the area was flooded with important proteins and vital growth factors. After decades of exhaustive research, doctors began using PRP treatment to treat surface blemishes as well.
What Can Be Treated?
One of the biggest benefits of PRP treatment is the fact that it can be used to treat many different imperfections. A lot of patients undergo this procedure to eradicate age-related blemishes such as lines and wrinkles. It is also a popular treatment among patients who have skin laxity issues. While most of these cosmetic blemishes aren’t dangerous, many patients find them to be unattractive. If that sounds like your own situation, then PRP treatment might be a great option for you. PRP therapy can also be combined with other cosmetic treatments if you would like to further enhance your results.
During your first consultation with our team, we will discuss your cosmetic goals and give you more information regarding PRP therapy. Our team will also need to take a look at your medical history to make sure that you don’t have any complications that might impact the treatment. While PRP treatment is incredibly safe and effective, we still need to make sure you’re a good candidate.
