What is PRP Skin Therapy?
PRP therapy has been used in the 1990s to speed up healing after orthopedic and cosmetic surgery. Today, the PRP method is the latest trend in skin rejuvenation and aesthetic medicine. PRP skin therapy can naturally combat skin aging on the face and hands. In contrast to anti-aging treatments such as hyaluronic acid or Botox, PRP treatment involves blood from a patient’s own body, so the treatment is 100% biological and natural.
The high concentration of growth factors in combination with using the micro-pen leads to excellent results: revitalization and renewal of the skin cells, increased blood flow, resulting in wrinkle smoothing and improved skin texture from the inside. The results of PRP skin therapy last for at least 2 years compare to 6 months for Botox or hyaluronic acid treatments.
How Does PRP Skin Therapy Work?
PRP Skin Therapy works by combining micro-needling with PRP for skin rejuvenation to significantly increase natural skin repair and enhancing the micro-pen result results. Dr. Larsh will extract 10ml of blood from you. Then the doctor will place the blood in a centrifuge to separate the red blood cells from the plasma. After this, the platelet-rich plasma is applied to the area, and the micro-pen glides over the skin to penetrate and perforate the skin.
The platelets are responsible for clotting, healing, and stimulating the skin to produce new collagen and elastin fibers. This will lead to an increase in volume, as well as vibrant, luminous, and younger-looking skin after completion of a 1-to-3 treatment series, which is conducted about 12 weeks apart.
What Happens After PRP Skin Therapy?
After the PRP skin therapy, you can follow your regular habits, without any impairment.
The repair process begins directly after the treatment and can take anywhere from weeks to months to display the full effect, depending on your individual situation. Since healing after PRP treatment is a continuous process, the appearance of lines and wrinkles will improve with over time. The most appreciated benefits are results that last longer than other skin rejuvenating procedures.
