Is your skin showing the effects of sun damage or age? It is a sad fact that your skin will eventually begin showing its age in the form of lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin. Although these developments are completely natural, premature skin aging is something no one should put up with. Recent years have seen incredible innovations in the field of cosmetic dermatology. New techniques such as PRP therapy have come up recently and given us the ability to completely transform the appearance of aging skin so you can look like a younger version of yourself.
The exciting thing is that many of the recent innovations in cosmetic techniques do not involve surgery. If we can significantly enhance your appearance without surgery, less skin tissue is damaged and your healing time will be significantly shortened. Less invasive techniques also have a much lower risk of adverse effects.
What is Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy?
PRP therapy is an innovative medical technique that was pioneered by doctors seeking to speed up the healing process among people who are older or are physically compromised in some way that has slowed down their healing abilities. Your body has incredible restorative abilities when given the chance. Unfortunately, the aging process inevitably leads to a slowdown in your healing abilities. PRP therapy allows us to jump start the healing process and return you to your normal activities very quickly.
Platelet-rich plasma is a product extracted from the patient’s own blood. We use a centrifuge to spin your blood and separate blood platelets that contain various growth factors. We can use this blood product as a form of injection into damaged skin tissue to reverse the signs of aging, regrow hair, or heal other forms of injuries.
Since PRP is derived from your own body, there is far less of a chance of an allergic response to this form of treatment. Your body recognizes your own blood and does not initiate an allergic response. This helps to limit inflammation that sometimes hinders certain treatments.
How Can PRP Therapy Benefit Me?
One of the main applications of PRP therapy in cosmetic dermatology is in its anti-aging effects. If you are dealing with the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, sagging skin, or age spots, PRP therapy can help to dramatically minimize or even reverse these types of conditions. The technique is also suitable for those looking to reduce the appearance of stretch marks, hyperpigmentation, acne scars, and enlarged pores.
