What if we told you that you could improve the look of your skin with your own blood?
It’s true. Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Treatment uses your body’s own platelets to boost collagen, giving patients tighter, smoother skin. This non-surgical skin rejuvenation has the ability to firm sagging skin and smooth out wrinkles for a younger, refreshed appearance.
Let’s look at how it works
PRP treatment is an in-office procedure that uses a concentrated serum from your own blood to enhance facial shape and volume. It can be used alone or in conjunction with dermal fillers to increase their longevity and effectiveness.
Step One – Extraction
A small extraction of blood is taken from the arm, less than is used in routine lab tests. This blood is then placed into a centrifuge that separates plasma and red blood cells. This platelet-rich-plasma contains growth factors to stimulate cell growth, collagen production, and tissue regeneration. The serum will then be injected into the skin to start the regeneration process.
Step Two – Activation
Once the platelet-rich-plasma is ready it is injected into the skin through a micro-needling procedure, the body responds as if there was an actual injury to the skin. The healing platelets create a fibrin mesh, growth factors then released stimulate collagen and elastin production which aids in skin healing.
Step Three – Healing
As the skin heals after treatment, patients will notice thicker, healthier looking skin as well as improvements in volume, tone, and texture.
Candidates for PRP Treatment
Candidates for PRP treatment should be in good health without any serious skin condition. Individuals who are dealing with thin, sagging skin as a result of aging will see great benefits from PRP treatment.

Benefits of PRP treatment
Many patients inquire about the benefits of PRP treatment over other injectable treatments such as Botox or dermal fillers. While very effective, these fillers are temporary and will need to be repeated over time to maintain results. PRP treatment uses the body’s natural healing process to stimulate cell growth and collagen production to firm skin over time. Because PRP treatment uses the patient’s own blood, there are very few side effects.
What does PRP Treat?
PRP can be beneficial in addressing a number of aging concerns. Among the most common are:
- Lines and Wrinkles
- Crepey skin
- Uneven skin tone
- Dark circles under the eye
Results from PRP Treatment
The number of treatments required varies from patient to patient. Most patients will need three treatments spaced out one to two months for optimal results. There is virtually no downtime following PRP therapy.
Why choose PRP treatment
PRP therapy has a history of being used to aid in the treatment of orthopedic injuries such as rotator cuff, by improving healing and rehabilitating the injury. Now, PRP therapy is revolutionizing the treatment of facial aging. One of the biggest factors that impact the appearance of aging skin is collagen breakdown. When this starts to occur, the face begins to show its age. PRP is the solution to this problem.
With its high concentration of growth factors, PRP encourages collagen production, cell growth, and tissue repair, resulting in smoother, tighter skin.
