How does PRP therapy improve my skin?

PRP therapy is helping to revolutionize skin rejuvenation for both men and women.  It is a simple, natural process that uses the body’s own healing system to tackle cellular issues that contribute to the aging of the skin.  But how does PRP therapy improve your skin.

What is PRP Therapy?

Platelet rich plasma (PRP) therapy is a procedure in which platelets from the blood are used to promote tissue repair, and stimulate cell regeneration.

The plasma preparation is made by drawing a small amount of blood from the patient, which is spun in a centrifuge at high speed, to isolate the platelets.  The PRP is then injected into the patient’s skin.   

How does PRP therapy improve the skin?

  • Enhances skin tone and texture

The growth of new skin cells tightens and firms the skin, thereby enhancing skin tone and texture.   PRP gets rid of discoloration and dullness, and reduces scars and blemishes.

  • Reduces wrinkles

PRP also stimulates the production of collagen, which is a vital protein that keeps the skin plump and hydrated.  Increasing collagen levels therefore reduces the appearance of wrinkles, and restores the youthful appearance of the skin.

  • Increases skin volume

PRP adds volume to the skin, so it’s an effective way to fill in sunken facial areas such as the cheeks, and below the eyes. 

PRP therapy improves the health and quality of the skin because the platelets contain growth factors that nourish the skin, and encourage the regeneration of new cells.  PRP can be combined with microneedling for even greater skin rejuvenation benefits.

Can I get botox and fillers at the same time?

Would you like to refresh your face with non-surgical options like botox and fillers?  If yes, you are probably interested in finding out if you can get botox and fillers at the same time.

Botox and fillers are cosmetic injectables that are used for facial rejuvenation.   They are usually a good choice for people with less advanced signs of aging.  

Can I get botox and fillers at the same time?

Yes, you can get botox and fillers at the same time.  Botox and dermal fillers are often combined in a single treatment, in order to achieve optimal facial rejuvenation results for the right candidate (click here to learn more).

Botox is typically used on the upper third of the face to treat dynamic wrinkles, which are the wrinkles caused by repeated facial expressions i.e. frown lines, forehead lines and crow’s feet.   Botox is typically injected on the forehead and around the eyes, and corrects dynamic wrinkles by relaxing the underlying muscles. 

Dermal fillers such as Juvéderm and Restylane are used to address static wrinkles that can be seen when the face is at rest.  This includes folds and wrinkles around the nose and mouth, especially nasolabial folds, and marionette lines.

Fillers can also be used to put back volume in areas of the face that have lost volume with age.  Fillers can augment sunken cheeks and contour the midface, and restore plumpness and definition to the lips.

Since botox and fillers target different areas of the face and focus on different aspects of aging, they can be administered at the same appointment.

What are the benefits of PRP with microneedling?

Has your skin been looking lackluster lately?  Microneedling can restore its youthful glow.  Microneedling is an excellent treatment for revitalizing the skin, and it’s now being combined with PRP (platelet-rich-plasma) therapy to achieve even greater results.  But what are the benefits of PRP with microneedling.  

What is PRP with microneedling?

PRP with microneedling is a cosmetic treatment that  rejuvenates the appearance of the skin by stimulating collagen, and regenerating skin cells.

During microneedling a device with tiny needles is used to create microscopic punctures in the skin.   This procedure triggers the body’s natural repair process and stimulates collagen production.  

PRP or platelet-rich-plasma is prepared from a sample of blood taken from the patient, which is spun in a centrifuge to separate the platelets from the rest of the blood.  The enriched plasma is then applied to the skin. 

What are the benefits of PRP with microneedling?

Microneedling is a well-known skin rejuvenation treatment that stimulates collagen and treats a range of skin concerns including fine lines, hyperpigmentation, acne scars, and age spots.   Combining PRP with microneedling enhances these benefits, because PRP contains growth factors that accelerate tissue healing, and activate fresh, new collagen.

PRP with microneedling is a powerful anti-aging tool that reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and gives the skin a fresh glow.   Microneedling creates channels in the skin and opens the pores, so when PRP is applied, the growth factors penetrate deeply and improve signs of aging.    

The skin rejuvenating effects of PRP with microneedling are gradual and ongoing.
