Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) injections are a non-surgical treatment shown to stimulate the body’s healing process. PRP injections use your blood to help stimulate the production of healthy collagen, which in turn improves your skin’s tone and texture.
A small sample of your blood is collected using a simple blood test. Platelet-Rich Plasma starts to form in your bloodstream within 4 hours of a healthy blood draw. Your sample will be spun down in a centrifuge to disperse the Platelet-Rich Plasma from the rest of your blood.
Once the separation of PRP from your blood, it is injected with fine needles into one or more treatment areas. There is making of the injection into the same location where you received your blood sample, allowing your body to create more collagen, resulting in a healthier skin appearance.
After the injection, your body’s natural healing process will begin to form new collagen. In turn, your skin becomes firmer and more radiant.
Results can be seen immediately. Your skin will appear smoother, more youthful, and you will notice a reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. After 3-5 sessions of PRP injections, you should see an improvement in your skin’s tone and texture.
