What is PRP Therapy?
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy is an all-natural skin rejuvenation treatment. For years, athletes and reconstructive surgeons have been using PRP therapy to help the body heal from injuries. Now, PRP therapy can also be used to help restore a healthy and radiant complexion.
Who is a Candidate?
Both men and women who are looking for a natural alternative to facial rejuvenation can benefit from this treatment. Candidates are often looking to treat volume loss in the face, fine lines and wrinkles, uneven skin texture, and scarring. A consultation with Dr. Shienbaum can help to determine if this treatment is right for you.
How is Treatment Done?
During treatment, your blood will be taken just as if you were getting your blood drawn at the doctor’s office. Then, your blood will be placed in a centrifuge, which will separate the blood plasma from the platelets. The platelets will then be reinjected into a specific area of the face to stimulate collagen and tissue growth for a healthier complexion.
Following PRP therapy, patients may experience mild skin redness. Most individuals will see full results 2-4 days after treatment. There is little downtime required, with many people returning to everyday activities within 24 hours.
