A Natural Way to Turn Back the Clock
These days, you have countless options for facial rejuvenation. From facials to lasers to surgical procedures, there is no shortage of choices. While these options provide benefits, they all rely on external factors. Facial rejuvenation with PRP uses wholly organic and natural means to create younger looking skin. PRP stands for platelet-rich plasma. Platelets are in your blood, and they are responsible for natural tissue healing and cell growth. PRP treatment stems from the natural healing power of your platelets. To access their therapeutic qualities, a donor sample of blood is taken (just like a standard blood test), and a centrifugation machine separates the platelets from the blood.
Spring Ridge Plastic Surgery uses the Magellan® TruPRP™, which is a revolutionary machine that has the power to separate more platelets from the blood than any other of its kind to create powerful plasma. After obtaining the PRP, Dr. Schlechter strategically injects this it into the desired regions of your face to stimulate collagen and new cell growth.
PRP works because of your blood, and PRP injections are ideal for treating:
- Wrinkles and fine lines
- Deep scarring
- Thinning skin
- Skin laxity
- Tone and texture irregularities
- Decreased facial volume
Benefits of PRP for Facial Rejuvenation
Unlike many laser treatments or surgical enhancement, PRP is only minimally-invasive, and it requires little to no downtime. There are no incisions made and no laser energy that will cause the skin to flake off. There may be some temporary redness or a “pinched” feeling at the injection sites, but these are temporary and mild.
PRP can increase facial volume and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles similar to the way that cosmetic procedures such as fillers can. The difference between these techniques, however, is that some fillers can cause an allergic reaction. Since PRP uses your own platelets, there is zero chance of experiencing an allergy, toxicity, or rejection.
With PRP treatments, you will notice the subtle enhancement and improvement in your skin quality and texture. This process works to gradually erase the signs of aging and damage so that your appearance remains natural looking and refreshed.
