No matter your age or how well you have or haven’t taken care of your skin, you can always use a little help in refreshing and healing your skin. Yet you’re not quite ready to go through invasive facelift procedures. That’s where PRP facial injections come in! PRP therapy has proven to be a great choice for those who want to rejuvenate their skin in an all-natural and effective way.
How PRP Works
PRP works in a very simple way: it uses the healing ability of your own blood to rejuvenate and revitalize your body and skin. PRP, or platelet-rich plasma, is just one part of your blood, the others being plasma, white blood cells, and red blood cells. PRP is highly-concentrated and contains proteins called growth factors, which heal injuries; white blood cells, which can heal other cells and prompt healing; and cytokines, which are what’s responsible for healing soft tissue.
The way we acquire your PRP is through a routine blood draw. We will then place your blood sample into a centrifuge, which will separate it into its different parts. From there, we will create an injectable serum that will be used to heal your skin.
The great thing about PRP facial injections is that there is no going under the knife and no foreign substances being injected into your body. There is also no risk of an allergic reaction as the injections only use your own blood. The treatment is entirely non-surgical and is considered convenient, even for those with busy schedules.
What Do PRP Injections Treat?
PRP is able to treat a wide range of different skin conditions and issues. For starters, PRP is the best treatment out there for addressing various signs of aging. PRP facial injections can minimize the appearance of lines and wrinkles and uneven skin texture. They improve the overall tone and texture of your skin. Remember, all those white blood cells and growth factors will be working to heal your cells and tissue so that your skin looks younger.
Am I a Good Candidate for PRP Injections?
Most people make good candidates for PRP facial injections, mostly because the procedure is completely non-surgical and minimally-invasive. However, not everyone qualifies. On your first visit, our experienced professionals can determine whether or not PRP is the right choice for you.
