As you age, the condition of your skin changes. You may have developed wrinkles, fine lines, facial depressions, loose skin, and other skin concerns. While these signs of aging can’t be avoided, they can be treated. Traditional methods may not offer effective results, while surgery may not be in the books for you. What treatment options are left? Thankfully, there is an advanced non-surgical, minimally invasive treatment that offers effective results.
Platelet-rich plasma, also known as PRP, is a cosmetic treatment that targets skin concerns by triggering your body’s natural healing processes to rejuvenate your skin in a target area. PRP facial treatments can reduce the signs of aging and give your skin a rejuvenated appearance. At Vibrant Dermatology, we offer non-surgical platelet-rich plasma facelifts.
What Is PRP Therapy for Your Face?
Platelet-rich plasma uses two elements to achieve optimal results. Plasma, the liquid portion of your blood, and platelets, the blood cells in your body that play an important role in your natural healing process. PRP uses your blood cells to amplify your body’s natural healing abilities. Therefore, platelet-rich plasma addresses your concerns from the inside out to rejuvenate your skin.
How Does Platelet-Rich Plasma Treatment Work?
Platelet-rich plasma can be used as a standalone treatment, or combined with other treatments, such as microneedling or laser treatments. The procedure starts with your blood being drawn. The platelets are then separated from your blood in a centrifuge. It is then re-inserted into your skin to treat wrinkles, fine lines, and other age-related concerns.
How Long Do the Results of PRP Last?
PRP is still relatively new in the dermatology world. However, the treatment has proven to offer many benefits. You can see the results of your platelet-rich plasma treatment within a few weeks. The results you achieve can be enjoyed up to 18 months after treatment.
Compared to alternative treatments, PRP offers longer-lasting, more natural-looking results. Additionally, PRP does not only treat the surface of your skin but goes into deeper layers to trigger your body’s natural healing processes. This means your skin will look and feel healthier after a PRP facial.
Benefits of Platelet-Rich Plasma
With so many treatments on the market, it may be difficult to tell which one will yield the best results. Some treatments are better suited for some people. PRP helps restore fullness to your while reducing wrinkles and tightening your skin. Here are some of the reasons to choose platelet-rich plasma facial to address your skin concerns:
Stimulate Collagen Production
PRP facial treatments target deeper layers of your skin to reduce the signs of aging. PRP stimulates collagen production to reduce wrinkles and make your skin more evenly toned. Because it stimulates collagen production, it makes your skin look and feel healthier from the inside out.
Reduces Sagging Skin
PRP tightens your skin and reduces the signs of aging in just one treatment session. By stimulating collagen production and connective tissue regeneration, your skin will become firmer.
Diminishes Acne Scars
Platelet-rich plasma does not only address wrinkles and fine lines. It can also be used to treat acne scarring.
Hyperpigmentation is a skin concern that makes your skin appear discolored and blotchy. This is due to an excess of melanin in your skin. PRP can help your skin to look and feel smooth and healthy.
Non-Surgical and Minimally Invasive
PRP treatments do not rely on invasive incisions or anesthesia to achieve results. Instead, the procedure is minimally invasive and does not require much time for recovery.
Because platelet-rich plasma uses your blood to address skin concerns, there is a low chance of infections and allergic reactions. This makes it a safe procedure with minimal risk.
Treatment Sessions Are Quick
PRP facial treatments are quick and cause minimal discomfort while offering long-lasting results. If you lead a busy lifestyle, you don’t have to carve out a lot of time for a PRP facial treatment.
One of the best benefits of platelet-rich plasma treatments is that the results you achieve are long-lasting and natural-looking. In addition, the results become gradually visible because the PRP needs time to work on your skin. This means there are no sudden changes in your appearance. Instead, the transformation is discreet.
What Does PRP Treat?
As you age, collagen and elastin production slows down. These are two essential proteins that help your skin stay plump. Platelet-rich plasma treatments effectively address wrinkles, fine lines, facial depressions, sun spots, hyperpigmentation, acne scars, and many more skin concerns. Because PRP stimulates collagen and elastin production, your skin will be firmer and smoother after treatment.
