What are platelet-rich plasma injections?
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a medical technique proven to rejuvenate cells in the treatment area and slow down the aging process. Sports physicians and orthopedic surgeons use this therapy to heal injuries and treat osteoarthritis, but it also helps aesthetic medicine specialists treat the following conditions:
- Hair loss
- Uneven skin tone
- Saggy skin
How does PRP treatment for anti-aging work?
PRP contains a highly concentrated amount of platelets taken from your blood. Platelets are specialized cells responsible for promoting healing and cellular rejuvenation. These cells are released into your body when there’s a wound to help clot your blood and stimulate the healing process.
When platelets are delivered to an area in your body via PRP injections, they trigger a cascade of natural healing processes, helping your body to repair itself at the cellular level.
When injected into your scalp, PRP promotes new hair follicles to grow, reversing hair loss. For facial rejuvenation treatments, this therapy helps restore lost soft tissue volume, filling in sunken cheeks, and reducing fine lines.
What should I expect from a PRP injection treatment?
First, Dr. Tumbaga draws a small amount of blood from your arm. Then, she processes it in a centrifuge to isolate PRP.
Depending on the type of treatment you want, she may prepare the area for PRP injection with a microneedling roller. Microneedling activates your body’s healing response and promotes anti-aging.
PRP treatments require minimal downtime, and you can return to your normal activities that same day.
You may notice younger looking skin or more hair growth within several weeks or months, but likely will need a series of PRP treatments to achieve your desired appearance.
If you have questions about how PRP injections could help you look and feel younger, call Wellness Diagnostics & Medispa or book an appointment online today.
