The skin is an organ, and like other organs, it attempts to keep itself healthy by using all available nutrients. However, because our skin is exposed to the outside environment, age-related damage will eventually occur. Other aging factors including a decrease in collagen production, enlarged pores, and discolorations due to scarring contribute to poorly-textured skin. Platelet-rich plasma, or PRP, can help rejuvenate the skin, particularly the facial skin, without the need for harsh treatments.
We are proud to offer PRP skin rejuvenation. Most of our clients are more than happy with the results they experience, just as they were pleased when they found out just how simple the procedure is. A simple PRP skin treatment could produce results that last for many months.
About Blood Platelets
Platelets aid in clotting. When our circulatory system springs a lead, the platelets are exposed to air, and they help form a mesh that stops the bleeding. They also contain various growth factors, specifically signaling agents that assist in the healing of tissue. When nutrients are rushed to an injury site, the platelets become a biochemical storehouse, and this helps direct tissue replacement.
In PRP skin rejuvenation, a concentrated amount of platelets are suspended in a small amount of plasma. When used in the treatment area, this kickstarts an accelerated skin replacement process. The new tissue will be healthier than what it’s replacing.
What PRP Can Improve
The best result from PRP skin rejuvenation is clearer skin that shows fewer blemishes. Because the tissue replacement also stimulates collagen production, the skin will become smoother and more taut. This means fewer wrinkles and crow’s feet.
Discoloration such as acne scare and injury scars, age spots, and even melasma can be improved with PRP skin rejuvenation. The growth factors in PRP aid healing by attracting undifferentiated stem cells into the newly formed tissue matrix and by promoting new capillary growth.
The results of PRP therapy aren’t immediate. It takes some time for the skin to become clearer and smoother. But the benefits are long-lasting. We may schedule multiple treatment sessions, and we may also combine this procedure with other technologies for optimum results. The smoother, healthier skin typically means a more youthful appearance.
