Feeling young and vibrant on the inside but the face in the mirror doesn’t reflect the way you feel? You’re not alone. As we age it’s not uncommon to lose our overall skin tone and texture that helps give us that youthful glow. Fortunately, Dr. Gray can help you fight back using your own…Platelet-Rich Plasma to restore your youthful appearance. Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) uses a viable and intact concentration of your own platelets in a small volume of plasma to fight the signs of aging. It’s safe, non-allergenic and has been used successfully in other medical procedures for years.
What is PRP?
PRP is a revolutionary step in utilizing the body’s own plasma to aid in its natural healing, rejuvenation and cellular growth. A small amount of your blood is withdrawn and processed to isolate the platelet –rich plasma and growth factors, and then placed back in the skin by micro-needling.
What are the common areas treated?
- Wrinkles on the forehead
- Fine lines around the eyes
- Dark circles under the eyes
- Hair Growth
- Nasal labial folds
- Crepey Skin
What are the treatments like?
The treatment is a simple non-surgical procedure performed in our office. A small amount of blood is collected and processed immediately, placed in a centrifuge and special filter to separate the platelet-rich plasma from the blood, and then microneedled back into the skin.
How soon will I see results?
Most patients will see an improvement in texture and tone within a few weeks. Reduction in fine lines, wrinkles, volume and skin elasticity occurs between 3 – 6 months as new collagen begins to grow. The effects of PRP can last from 12 months to 2 years. You’re also able to return for monthly treatments for enhanced results.
Benefits of PRP
PRP stimulates new cell growth and helps the body heal itself, with no risks of allergic reaction and no infection, because it comes from your own body! PRP helps restore and enhance skin tone, reduce wrinkles and fine lines and improves skin texture and tone considerably without surgery or looking overdone. PRP is one of the latest non-surgical advances for facial rejuvenation, while promoting collagen regrowth.
Is PRP Safe?
