PRP is a natural product produced by your body. A small amount of blood is drawn into a sterile lab tube. The blood is spun down with a centrifuge and the concentrated stem cells, growth factors and platelets are ready to be re-injected into areas needing improvement, such as wrinkles, hollows, and scars.This highly concentrated infusion of platelets and growth factors is called Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP). When this rich platelet concentration is injected it stimulates your own tissue to create amped up collagen for smoother firmer skin.
There is a very large difference between PRP therapy and hyaluronic fillers. Hyaluronic fillers are composed of gel that fills and add volume. These products improve the area for a relatively short period of time and then are repeated. PRP stimulates collagen growth for a full facial rejuvenation instead of localized wrinkle improvement. Fillers can be used in conjunction with PRP therapy, fillers, fill lines add volume , structure and PRP enhances overall wrinkle improvement.
Hyaluronic fillers and PRP work very well together, allowing the fillers to add volume and structure, and PRP to enhance the skin's overall appearance.
You should expect tighter brighter skin using your own blood. How cool is that. And using your own blood means its natural and safe (you can’t have an allergy to your own blood).The procedure itself last 20-30 minutes. You can have mild swelling, redness and bruising which will dissipate in 1-3 days. Your skin will flake off/exfoliate in 3-4 days after treatment. You begin to see results as early as 4-7 days, improving over time. Depending on your skin's response, will depend on how many PRP injections are suggested. Treatments can be repeated every 4-6 weeks. Your nurse will request that you avoid high intensity exercising (no sweating) for 48 hours, avoid sun exposure for 3 days.
