What is Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)?

The liquid part of your blood is called plasma, while platelets are cell fragments that help produce clots to stop bleeding. Platelet-rich plasma, then, is exactly what it describes: the liquid part of your blood holding a high concentration of beneficial cell fragments.

PRP therapy works by boosting the creation of elements that support healing in the body, including collagen, elastin, and other important proteins. This has several benefits, including softening wrinkles, adding volume to sagging areas, reducing deep creases, smoothing out stretch marks, shrinking dilated pores, enhancing the overall complexion, and improving the appearance of scars. It does this by encouraging skin healing in a more natural way, whether used on its own or combined with a treatment that prompts a healing response.

During the procedure, blood is collected and separated via centrifuge into its component parts. Then, concentrated platelets are re-injected or massaged into the skin. PRP is often employed as an add-on to microneedling, which creates tiny channels in the skin that allow the platelet rich plasma to be absorbed more readily.

Why Choose Skin Klinic & Day Spa for Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)?

Highly experienced, licensed registered nurses provide each platelet rich plasma treatment at Skin Klinic & Day Spa. An anesthetic is given to reduce discomfort caused by the procedure, which involves needles to draw blood and for injections or creating micro-channels.

During your consultation, our dedicated team will answer any questions you have about what to expect from the treatment in order to put your mind at ease.

What Is the PRP Experience at Skin Klinic & Day Spa?

At Skin Klinic & Day Spa, PRP is a simple and quick procedure that can be completed in about 30 minutes, although patients will need to arrive 30 minutes prior to the injections so that there’s enough time for a topical anesthetic to be applied and start working. Our registered nurses will explain the steps as they go, and our patients tend to tolerate this treatment well.

What Can I Expect from Recovery and Results After PRP?

After PRP, it’s normal for side effects such as swelling, tingling, and redness to occur, as well as to go away on their own within four to six days. The side effects associated with other injectables is very low, since a patient’s own blood is used and recognized by the body.

There is minimal downtime, and patients can resume their normal activities right away after the procedure. Patients should cleanse and moisturize their skin while it’s healing, but refrain from alcohol-based products, exfoliants, and unprotected sun exposure. Note that additional maintenance treatments may be needed to optimize the results from PRP.

Which Other Techniques are Available for Skin Rejuvenation?

In addition to PRP, there are other minimally invasive skincare and beauty treatments for improving common skin imperfections. Chemical peels are a method of exfoliating that works by applying a mild acidic solution to remove a layer of dead skin, while dermabrasion removes the top layers of skin using a specialized tool, and dermaplaning takes off vellus hairs along with the dead skin and dirt that gets trapped on the surface. AQUAGOLD® fine touch™ infuses the skin with different types of medications that are customized to the needs and goals of the patient.
