What Is PRP Skin Rejuvenation?

Platelet Rich Plasma or PRP is a non-surgical anti-aging treatment. It is especially efficient for the face, neck, and hands. This solution is unique as it uses an individual’s own plasma. Plasma is the liquid part of the blood, which mostly consists of water and proteins, and it helps your blood clot. This skin rejuvenation leverages plasma’s growth and healing capacity. Your provider can use PRP on its own or combine it with other injectables.

What Can PRP Treat?

Health providers can use PRP therapy for a variety of medical concerns, including anti-aging. Dermatologists and aestheticians can use PRP injections as part of their cosmetic offerings.

PRP rejuvenation can help with:

  • Wrinkles and creases reduction
  • Skin tightening
  • Complexion
  • Acne scars

This anti-aging treatment works for people of any gender. PRP can also help combat hair loss by stimulating hair follicle growth.

PRP Process and Results

A treatment session usually takes 30 to 60 minutes, A health professional draws a blood sample and uses advanced equipment to separate the plasma. This process typically requires 15 minutes. Your provider then numbs the targeted area of your body before injecting your plasma to stimulate cell regeneration and rejuvenate your skin.

People usually need no downtime after an appointment and can resume their daily activities right away. You may experience some redness and swelling in the treated area for up to one day after the injections. These side effects should go away on their own.

Results appear after one session, but most dermatologists and aestheticians recommend about three treatments for maximum effects. Your final results show within a few weeks or months. The healing power of plasma helps sustain your smoother and plumper skin for up to 18 months. Afterward, your skincare professional will determine a maintenance treatment plan.
