PRP therapy is available in Charlotte
PRP is an acronym for Platelet-Rich Plasma Therapy. PRP is the latest technology to aid in skin rejuvenation and is becoming one of the most popular anti-aging treatments. Treatment begins with a concentrated solution of plasma from a sample of your own blood. The plasma is enriched with growth factors and stem cells that stimulates tissue repair and collagen growth. The result is healthier and younger-looking skin. The benefits of PRP therapy include:
- Reduction of fine lines and wrinkles
- The tightening and toning of skin
- Increased collagen production
- Decreased volume loss
- Improves crow’s feet and dark under eye circles
- Acne scarring treatment
- Improves the appearance of rosacea
- Hair restoration
Injecting your own plasma into your skin to make it more youthful sounds like something from a science-fiction novel, but PRP therapy is real, and increasingly popular for cosmetic dermatology.
PRP in conjunction with other procedures
The goal of PRP treatment is to inject plasma into the dermal layer of the skin. Our platelets contain proteins that stimulates local stem cells to produce new cells and structures. This process induces the formation of collagen and new blood supply, rejuvenating the skin. As the amount of collagen within the dermal layer of the skin increases, so does the skin’s ability to retain moisture. This is one way that aging, damaged skin becomes younger-looking skin. Combining PRP therapy with Microneedling and/or injectable fillers can yield amazing results.
Downtime and procedure time for PRP therapy
Downtime will vary depending upon the procedure. Patients can expect redness to occur in the treatment area that can last from 2-4 days. Treatment for acne scars and deep wrinkles may require a longer downtime. Platelet-Rich Plasma treatments can take about 30-45 minutes, depending upon the area(s) treated. Numbing cream is applied and allowed to take affect prior to the procedure to minimize any discomfort.
