Wondering what all the fuss is about when it comes to PRP or platelet-rich plasma? PRP is a great cosmetic injectable treatment for naturally rejuvenating the skin and repairing the signs of aging.
The treatment involves reinjecting your own platelet-rich plasma into your skin, delivering an abundance of growth factors that stimulate the body’s normal healing response, helping you to achieve total rejuvenation.
Here are five reasons you should give it a try:
- It Provides Total Rejuvenation
PRP stimulates collagen and elastin production which thickens and tightens thinning skin, effectively smoothing wrinkles and fine lines. Because it boosts collagen, it’s also a great treatment for improving overall skin texture and tone. It’s particularly good for people who suffer from rosacea or acne.
- It Treats Delicate and Difficult To Reach Areas
PRP is extremely effective for treating difficult to treat areas, such as the delicate under-eye area where clients often notice signs of aging first but where no laser can be used.
- It’s a Natural Type of Cosmetic Injectable
PRP uses your own natural elements without the addition of any foreign products. The treatment works by drawing a small sample of your blood, which is then spun in a centrifuge for approximately five minutes to separate the plasma from the other blood particles. The platelet-rich plasma is then reinjected back into the treatment area to stimulate collagen and elastin production.
- It’s Safe
Because it uses your own natural elements, PRP is very safe. It’s also not a new treatment. It’s long been recognized and used in the hospital system and in sports medicine for its effective wound healing properties since the 1970s.
5.Results are Long Lasting
Results from PRP take between three to four weeks to appear but are long-lasting, typically lasting 12 to 18 months after an initial series of three treatments.
- No Going Under the Knife
Avoid invasive treatments like facelifts with PRP. It can get you the results you want in a short session without having to worry about an intensive procedure.
- Recovery Time is Short
There’s little to no recovery time associated with the PRP treatment. You may experience some redness in your face but this will dissipate and won’t hinder you from going about your daily life
