Blood is essential to human life. It transmits nutrition and oxygen to keep the body healthy. Approximately half of blood is plasma, a substance that helps blood to clot. Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is plasma that contains a concentrated form of platelets, small cells that encourage growth and healing. PRP injections can give your face a more vibrant and youthful complexion.
PRP treatment begins with drawing blood from a vein in your arm. The blood is then processed to separate the platelets from the rest of the cells and produce a highly concentrated platelet-rich plasma. This process takes approximately 20 minutes. Once the PRP has been prepared, the plastic surgeon will inject the PRP into your face, focusing on areas that need rejuvenation.
The PRP will lead to a brighter complexion and promote the growth of new blood vessels and collagen. Over time, you will observe subtle yet noticeable improvements as the PRP minimizes fine lines, enhances volume, improves skin tone, and softens skin texture. PRP injections may also be combined with fat injections or dermal fillers for more dramatic results. Most patients return to normal activities the day following treatment and can expect any inflammation to fully subside within 10 to 14 days.
Results and Benefits
PRP injections produce natural-looking results. The treatment adds youthful color that counteracts the grayer skin tone associated with age-related diminished blood flow. PRP also encourages collagen production to plump out areas of skin with age-induced volume loss. Simply put, PRP injections are a way of reintroducing natural substances to help the body heal itself. There is no scarring with PRP injections, and this treatment is very safe and affordable in comparison with other cosmetic procedures. Results improve over time, and your facial skin will become firmer and smoother with fewer fine lines and wrinkles.
PRP can enrich your facial skin and promote natural healing to restore a smoother and more vibrantly youthful complexion.
