Platelet-rich Plasma (PRP)

Platelet-rich Plasma (PRP)

What Is Platelet-rich Plasma (PRP)?

Although blood is mainly a liquid (called plasma), it also contains small solid components (red cells, white cells, and platelets.) The platelets are best known for their importance in clotting blood. However, platelets also contain hundreds of proteins called growth factors which are very important in the healing of injuries.

PRP is plasma with many more platelets than what is typically found in blood. The concentration of platelets — and, thereby, the concentration of growth factors — can be 5 to 10 times greater (or richer) than usual

To develop a PRP preparation, blood must first be drawn from a patient. The platelets are separated from other blood cells and their concentration is increased during a process called centrifugation. Then the increased concentration of platelets is combined with the remaining blood.


What to expect after your PRP treatment?

The skin changes following your PRP treatment start immediately after introduction of the PRP into the skin and continue for months following your treatment:

First two to four weeks: you will notice an overall improvement in skin tone, texture and hydration.

Next three to six weeks: You will start to notice an improvement in fine lines and wrinkles and volume restoration due to new collagen and blood vessels.

This improvement continues for three to six months and may last for twelve months and beyond in some people.


How long will the results of my Cosmetic PRP treatment Last?

Depending on the individual, the effects of your Cosmetic PRP can last from 12 months to two years.

It is recommended a touch up or maintenance schedule every six to twelve months depending on your response and skin care goals.


Can Cosmetic PRP be combined with other dermal fillers?

While it creates a longer-lasting effect in the skin, Cosmetic PRP takes time to work and the results for volume restoration and deep folds are subtle. For our patients looking for an immediate effect, we may combine Cosmetic PRP with FDA approved hyaluronic acid fillers such as Juvederm and Belotero Balance for quick volume correction and reduction of deep wrinkles and folds. Cosmetic dermal fillers provide a matrix for building new collagen and can be safely used to accelerate and sustain the effects of Cosmetic PRP.


Who is Not a Good Candidate for PRP Treatment?

The following individuals are not good candidates for PRP:

  • Individuals with history of heavy smoking, drug or alcohol use
