PRP (Platelet-Rich Plasma) is simply blood plasma with a concentration of platelets and other growth factors. To prepare PRP, blood is taken from a patient and spun in a centrifuge, which separates the platelets from the rest of the bloods components. These platelets are retrieved, activated and re-injected back into the selected areas of the patient.
When you come for your procedure, the area being treated will first have a topical numbing solutions applied. After that time blood is drawn in our office as though you are having a routine blood test. It is then spun in a centrifuge and the PRP is separated and removed from the rest of the blood.
You should be well hydrated (drink lots of water) prior to your visit to maximize the amount of plasma we can yield from your blood draw. Before photos of the treatment area will be taken. After 20 or more minutes of numbing you will begin your treatment. The procedure takes roughly 30 minutes, there can be mild bruising and swelling that lasts up to a week.
Cosmetic Benefits of PRP
PRP enhanced facial rejuvenation. PRP is injected into areas of the face alone or following injections with a HA (hyaluronic acid) filler, such as Juvederm or Voluma
While this procedure is not technically a ‘facelift’, the addition of PRP will not only increase volume in the skin, it also contains at least 8 growth factors that will continually work as a rejuvenating agent over a long period of time. While the growth factors go to work under the skin in the dermis building collagen, the epidermis (the outer most layer of skin) appears smoother and has a beautiful, healthy glow. Additionally, the skin takes on a ‘younger’ tone as new blood vessels form. Results last up to one year.
PRP enhanced breast augmentation is known as the PRP BreastLift™. This procedure is for women who are happy with the size of their breasts, but want to restore fullness, especially to the upper part of the breast and in the cleavage area. The PRP is injected into certain areas of the breast. The growth factors can also restore sensitivity to the breast that may have been lost from breastfeeding or previous implants and will give the skin a younger, healthier look. Results generally last from 9-18 months.
