Examining the Rejuvenation Potential of PRP Therapy
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy has already been used to treat certain injuries to accelerate the healing process by increasing the concentration of growth factors. Now, some innovative skin care specialists have put PRP therapy to work for their patients who are interested in skin rejuvenation, with promising results. Consider talking to a skin care specialist to find out if PRP therapy could be right for you.
What It Is
PRP therapy involves taking a sample of plasma from the patient’s blood. This plasma contains platelets in greater concentrations than is normally found in human blood. This is achieved by processing the blood in a centrifuge.
What It Can Do
By withdrawing only a small sample of blood from the patient, doctors are able to achieve remarkable results that are observable not long after the treatment. If you have wrinkles or deep folds, PRP therapy might be right for you. It can be used to reduce the look of the horizontal lines across the forehead, the glabellar lines between the brows, and the look of crow’s feet next to the eyes. PRP therapy is also appropriate for treating the nasolabial folds, commonly referred to as laugh lines; the marionette lines; and vertical lip lines. In addition to treating wrinkles, this innovative cosmetic treatment can drastically improve the look of acne scars and it can enhance the effects of dermal fillers. PRP injections can restore a rejuvenated, youthful look with a pleasing skin tone. Some providers have even begun to use it as a treatment for hair loss.
What You Can Expect
After discussing the treatment with your provider, a small amount of blood will be drawn. It will then be processed in a centrifuge and the growth factors will be activated. Then, the provider will inject your own blood back into your skin in strategic locations.
