Have you been thinking about rejuvenating your appearance but don’t want to inject chemicals, toxins, or fillers into your face? Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) treatments offer an all-natural alternative that can deliver amazing results for many aesthetic issues.
Led by women’s health specialist Asia Mohsin, MD, the team at Progressive Women’s Health in Friendswood, Texas, can help you look your best naturally using safe and effective PRP therapy. Here’s a closer look at this incredible treatment and the many benefits it can bring.
What is PRP for facial rejuvenation?
You have cells called platelets in your blood. These special cells bring nutrients and growth factors to all parts of your body to promote new cell growth. Platelet-rich plasma therapy harvests platelets from your body and uses them to encourage healing and the development of new cells in areas where you need it.
To perform a PRP treatment, your Progressive Women’s Health provider first draws a small amount of your blood. Then your provider spins it in a special machine called a centrifuge, which separates your platelets from the rest of your blood. Your provider then uses the platelets to create a concentrated solution that has many more platelets than your blood normally has.
Then your provider injects this powerful PRP solution into the targeted treatment areas of your face. There, the PRP solution gets to work stimulating your body’s natural healing processes and encouraging the production of collagen and elastin, proteins that are key in rejuvenating the appearance of your skin.
Because your body’s collagen and elastin production works using the domino effect, the more your body produces, the more it continues to produce. This means your PRP therapy results continue to evolve for up to 18 months.
Results aren’t immediate, however. Because PRP therapy uses your body’s natural healing processes, it can take 3-4 weeks for noticeable results to appear.
What are the benefits of PRP for facial rejuvenation?
Platelet-rich plasma therapy for facial rejuvenation has been FDA-cleared for decades. This means treatments have stood the test of time. Furthermore, since this treatment uses your own blood, your body should be receptive to the treatment.
And when it comes to improving the quality of your skin, PRP therapy can help in numerous ways. For example, PRP therapy can do the following:
- Reduce fine lines and wrinkles
- Improve your skin’s texture
- Restore lost volume and fullness in sunken areas of your face
- Minimize the appearance of acne scars or other imperfections
- Shrink the look of oversized pores
And remember, PRP therapy for facial rejuvenation is the treatment that keeps on treating, offering continued results for up to 18 months after your initial treatment.
Is PRP for facial rejuvenation right for me?
The best way to learn if PRP treatments are right for your aesthetic goals is to talk with a trained provider at Progressive Women’s Health. We review your medical history, evaluate your skin, and discuss your concerns and aesthetic goals before recommending PRP therapy.
The best candidates for PRP therapy have moderate (not severe) signs of aging and/or mild-to-moderate skin laxity (looseness). In addition, PRP candidates should be in good overall health and have realistic expectations about what the treatment can do for their appearance.
Platelet-rich plasma therapy is usually safe for most patients. However, if you’re pregnant, take blood thinners, or have a blood-clotting disorder, your Progressive Women’s Health provider may caution against PRP therapy.
