As we age, we find ourselves beset by aesthetic misfortunes such as wrinkles, fine lines, age spots, and hair loss. Fortunately, PRP therapy can help keep these things at bay. This state-of-the art, minimally invasive rejuvenation treatment has helped innumerable people regain their looks, confidence, and quality of life. Here at Bella Forma Cosmetic Surgery Center and Medspa, we invite you to learn more about what this revolutionary treatment may be able to do for you.
What is PRP Therapy?
Blood is comprised of red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets. PRP, otherwise known as platelet-rich plasma, is full of proteins packed with growth factors that can stimulate the healing process in your body. This promotes cellular regeneration as well as the production of collagen and elastin, aiding instrumentally in tissue repair.
How Does It Work?
If you are deemed eligible for PRP therapy, you will be invited to our office for your session. A qualified professional will draw a small sample of blood from your arm and place this sample in a device called a centrifuge. This machine spins rapidly to separate the platelet-rich plasma from the other components of your blood. This PRP is then prepared in a serum and injected into the area(s) of concern; it is also applied to the whole region via DermaPen in a microneedling procedure. PRP therapy has proven effective in a variety of ways:
- Plumping sagging skin
- Improving skin complexion
- Rejuvenating hair follicles
- Diminishing acne scarring
- Lessening the severity of scars and stretch marks
- Smoothing over wrinkles
The whole process takes anywhere from 60 to 90 minutes, and results may appear in a few weeks to months. For optimal results, we recommend coming in for three treatments per year.
Is It Right for Me?
Anyone looking to lessen the severity of skin blemishes or hair loss may be a good candidate for PRP. It is safe for the majority, though we do not advise it for anyone with AIDS, HIV, cardiovascular disease, hepatitis C, blood cancer, or skin cancer in the area of concern. It is also important to harbor realistic expectations for this treatment in terms of what it can accomplish. The best way to determine your candidacy is to come to our office for an official consultation.
