Either injected or applied during a microneedling procedure, Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is one of the best treatments to rejuvenate the skin and give you a natural, healthy look.
What is PRP?
Blood is made up of four components: plasma, red cells, white cells and platelets. Platelets are in charge of clotting blood and they contain a great amount of what is called growth factors. These growth factors are essential for healing injuries in the human body.
During a PRP procedure, a health professional has to draw blood from the patient. The blood is stored in sterile glass tubes and put into a centrifuge machine which separates the blood components and increases the concentration of platelets. Therefore, this PRP preparation which is used in the procedure has a higher number of growth factors than usual.
How is PRP applied?
At Drops of Beauty Anti-Aging Medical Spa we offer two procedures which incorporate Plasma Rich Platelets (PRP): injections and Dermapen (microneedling). Both procedures are done with ECLIPSE PRP System, the best one available in the market.
Injections are the most efficient way to reincorporate the PRP into your skin. The procedure can be done in the entire face, in the neck, in both or in specific areas which the patient needs to be treated. This treatment is often called a “vampire facelift.”
Microneedling is a procedure in which the skin is punctured with a device that contains tiny, sterile needles. The treatment creates microscopic channels which stimulate the skin’s natural ability to regenerate itself, and produce collagen and elastin. In traditional microneedling procedures aestheticians apply a serum, but adding the PRP preparation to the procedure greatly increases its efficacy, it is like applying your very own serum. This treatment is often called a “vampire facial.”
As PRP is a natural product created from your own blood there is technically no chance of presenting a reaction against it.
What results can PRP give?
Improved skin tone and texture.
Reduction of acne scars.
Reduction of fine lines and wrinkles.
Improvement of volume loss (PRP injections).
Reduction of stretch marks.
What can I expect after a PRP procedure?
Your skin can be swollen and red for up to 1-2 days in the case of injections and 3-4 days in the case of microneedling. Individual reactions may vary.
Results will begin to appear after 3-4 weeks and will improve with time. PRP is not like a filler which gives you immediate results, PRP works with your own body’s healing capacity to regenerate itself. Nonetheless, PRP is a great addition to many of the fillers that we offer at Drops of Beauty Anti-Aging Medical Spa.
How many treatments will I need?
Although you can obtain results since the first treatment, our specialists recommend getting three PRP procedures, each one four weeks apart, to see the best results.
