Platelet-rich plasma is a concentrate of platelet-rich plasma protein that is derived from whole blood. It contains several different proteins that stimulate healing of soft tissue and joints. Initially, it was used to help support wound healing after certain injuries. PRP is used in aesthetic medicine to address wrinkles, volume loss, correct acne scars and stimulate hair growth.
What’s the process like? After being drawn, your blood is centrifuged to remove red blood cells and ready to be used for any treatment you’d like. Aristocrat Plastic Surgery & MedAesthetics offers a wide variety of PRP treatments: PRP injections for the face, microneedling with PRP, PRP injections for hair growth. There are reasons why PRP might be great for you:
- It’s a natural and safe way to get rejuvenated where it’s needed. Because PRP is composed of your blood, the risk factor for injecting it into your face may be significantly less than with dermal fillers. Although dermal fillers mimic natural hyaluronic acid they are still synthetic, and you may get an allergic reaction to them. One of the common areas to get PRP injections is the undereye zone. A few PRP sessions of this can help reduce hollowness and improve the appearance of undereye circles.
- The downtime is minimal and you don’t need to think about protecting your skin after PRP treatments. While lasers and peels make us more susceptible to UV radiation, PRP treatments can be safely done even in summer or right before your Florida vacation.
- It’s a great addition to your beauty routine. Let’s say you did microneedling in the past and loved your results – PRP add-on will make it even more effective! PRP can become “your little extra” that provides great benefits.
