What Is PRP?
PRP, or platelet-rich plasma, is a golden yellow substance obtained from blood. It is rich with growth factors, and it may be used to provide a variety of rejuvenating factors.
When injected, PRP may be used to:
- Enhance and contour facial structure
- Minimize the appearance fine lines and wrinkles
- Reduce skin laxity
- Rejuvenate skin texture
- Restore lost volume
PRP offers a non-surgical, minimally invasive option to address a variety of aesthetic concerns regardless of skin tone and type.
What Could I Expect from the Treatment Process?
All platelet-rich plasma treatments begin with harvesting the growth factors. Although this may sound intimidating, it is a relatively simple process! During this process, a blood draw will be performed just like if you were having bloodwork done. This sample is then placed in a special centrifuge. This centrifuge spins at a rapid rate, isolating the golden yellow substance from the rest of the blood.
Once the PRP has been isolated, it can be prepared as an injectable. These injections are then carefully administered into particular areas of concern. The growth factors begin working to stimulate your body’s natural growth factors. Although there is minimal pain associated with the process, you may experience some pinching or discomfort at the injection site.
There is no set downtime associated with the treatment process, and you should be able to resume normal daily activities in Texas. Results achieved with this diverse treatment will vary for each person and their specific concerns. However, it is important to keep in mind it may take some time to enjoy results from PRP as your body produces new tissues.
