What is PRP?
Platelet-rich plasma or PRP is derived from a conventional blood draw. Your sample is spun down in a centrifuge to concentrate the platelets and plasma. Platelets are an essential part of your blood that help with clotting, but also contain vast healing components that stimulate cellular regeneration and accelerate tissue repair.
PRP is an effective treatment for wound healing and sports injuries, but has quickly become one of the most advanced, effective natural treatments for cellular rejuvenation when it comes to the complexion. The growth factors can stimulate stem cells to create new, youthful tissue in areas like the face and scalp, and improve sexual wellness.
What is a PRP facial?
For a PRP facial, you provide a small blood sample, which is then spun down and treated to concentrate the platelets. Your Med Physique Center For Aesthetics provider uses the SkinPen® microneedling device to poke dozens of tiny, superficial holes in your dermis. Then they apply the PRP to your skin, where it soaks in deep to encourage healing.
The PRP initiates a localized stem cell response, which involves recruiting collagen-producing cells, or fibroblasts. These fibroblasts replace tissue that has experienced damage or has been compromised through the aging process. You end up with healthy skin that looks refreshed and rejuvenated.
What is a PRP facelift?
During a PRP facelift, your provider injects PRP into targeted areas of your face, following the application of dermal fillers. Dermal fillers restore lost volume while the added PRP stimulates blood flow and encourages the growth of new cells, collagen, and blood vessels. The overall result is a healthy, glowing, more youthful appearance achieved without invasive surgery.
What types of skin concerns can PRP facials and facelifts treat?
In addition to providing you with a radiant glow, PRP facials effectively improve a variety of skin concerns, including:
- Frown lines and crow’s feet
- Wrinkled and sagging skin
Targeted PRP therapy can also have a positive effect on erectile dysfunction, urinary incontinence, sexual wellness, and hair regrowth.
