What are PRP Injections?

Ahh the million-dollar question.

PRP is an abbreviation for Platelet Rich Plasma. PRP is derived from your blood and is a high concentration of cellular elements that promote cell growth, tissue repair and collagen production. When PRP is injected into face, your growth factors and stem cells work together to strengthen skin cells deep under the surface of skin. The treatment targets fine lines and wrinkles, skin laxity, hyperpigmentation, and overall skin tone and texture.

You may be familiar with the term PRP because we pair it with our microneedling treatment. Microneedling with PRP is extremely effective in treating skin texture and tone superficially. When you inject PRP into the face you are reaching the skin cells on a much deeper level, introducing new growth factors into the entire skin cell regeneration cycle. Think of PRP as a boost to your skin cells, helping to repair damaged tissue, resulting in stronger collagen fibers. Stronger collagen and elastin are the building blocks that help to keep skin tight and toned, and let’s not forget wrinkle-free. The stronger your skin cells, the more difficult it is for them breakdown, causing skin laxity (think wrinkles, fine lines, uneven skin tone).

We initially recommend patients receive 3 treatments spaced 1 month apart to see results. PRP can be injected basically anywhere and helps to tighten and tone skin. From your face, to your neck, to your stomach, there is no risk because PRP is natural.

I believe in this, support it and recommend all of my patients consider PRP Therapy.
