Do you have fine lines, dark age spots, or sun damage? These skin care concerns can be addressed in a number of ways, including over-the-counter products. While beauty store creams and serums may improve your skin slightly, delving beneath the skin will produce more thorough results.
PRP treatment is one option for a skin care solution that uses your body’s own plasma to make changes to the skin at a cellular level. Find out more about PRP and how it can enhance your complexion in the guide below.
What Are PRP Injections?
PRP is an acronym for “platelet-rich plasma.” Platelet-rich plasma is the portion of blood that contains a high amount of platelets. Platelets are important because they provide intense healing and regenerative properties.
When your own PRP is injected into areas of concern, it can lead to a deep healing response that repairs damage and encourages new cell growth.
The Benefits of PRP Therapy for Skin
PRP injections have become a popular way to address a variety of skin care concerns. When injected into your facial skin, PRP can help rejuvenate your complexion and even create a more youthful appearance. The following are just some of the benefits that can be produced by PRP injections:
- Diminished fine lines and wrinkles
- Tightening of sagging skin
- Faded hyperpigmentation
- Reduced acne scarring
- Resolved sun damage
- Boost in vibrancy
- Increased collagen
One of the biggest benefits of PRP therapy for skin care is that it is an all-natural treatment. Unlike over-the-counter beauty products, PRP treatment uses your body’s own plasma to improve the skin and resolve certain imperfections.
How Is PRP for Skin Rejuvenation Performed?
During PRP skin rejuvenation, a small blood sample is taken from your arm. This sample is then spun down in a centrifuge to separate the plasma from the red blood cells. This platelet-rich plasma is then injected back into your skin wherever imperfections are present.
PRP skin treatment is a non-surgical, outpatient procedure. This means that you can receive treatment and return home the same day with no recovery process or downtime. The PRP injections will immediately begin working beneath the skin to produce a healing response, with repaired skin cells and new cell growth.
