What are PRP Injections?

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections are a fantastic, natural solution to aging, dull skin. PRP consists of concentrated blood platelets in a small amount of plasma containing growth factors. Combining PRP with microneedling is a great solution to fine lines and wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, and acne scarring for a more evenly toned and refreshed complexion.

PRP Injection Candidates

Healthy men and women who wish to improve their overall complexion can benefit from PRP injections. However, you should not receive this treatment if you have active acne or an infection in the treatment area, have wound healing issues, or are pregnant or nursing. Please contact our office today to schedule a consultation appointment to determine if this treatment is right for you.  At Grand Pearl Spa, we take the time to create a personalized treatment plan for each of our patients, as no two individuals are the same.

The PRP Injection Treatment

The PRP injection treatment is a multi-step process, consisting of:

Step 1: PRP:

In order to collect the platelet-rich plasma from your blood, a routine blood draw will be performed. The blood is then placed into a machine called a centrifuge, which will spin to separate the platelets from the other blood components. Once the platelets are separated, they are collected and applied to the treatment area.

Step 2: Microneedling:

Next, a special microneedling pen will be used to create micro-wounds in the skin to stimulate collagen and elastin production, while simultaneously pushing the platelet-rich plasma deep into the skin for optimal absorption.

What to Expect Following PRP Injections

Following PRP treatment, you may experience mild redness or swelling, which will resolve over the next 2-4 days. We recommend avoiding strenuous activity and intense sun exposure for 24-48 hours for the best results.  The number of treatments necessary will depend on the amount of change desired, however, most people can see improvements after 1-4 treatments.
