Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Skin Rejuvenation

As we age, there is loss of volume in the tissues of the face. And as the content of elastin and collagen decreases, we see decreased firmness and elasticity of our skin. Many factors contribute to these changes, including genetics, sun damage, gravity, smoking, and aging.


Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Skin Rejuvenation is a revolutionary procedure that helps restore and enhance areas which require volume. Platelets in your blood contain many different growth factors and cytokines, which stimulate soft tissue and collagen and hyaluronic acid production. Collagen production has been attributed to helping correct the visible effects of wrinkles. Hyaluronic acid has been shown to increase skin tone and volume, providing a more youthful appearance.


PRP does not require surgery, does not use commercial fillers and is not a surgical face lift. PRP uses your own body’s regenerative powers as it is from your own blood, so there is no risk of allergic reaction and the treatment is safe and “all-natural”. This procedure helps restore and enhance areas which require volume and can be used to reduce or eliminate skin wrinkles, improve the appearance of acne scarring and give you a younger refreshed look. Improvements of skin texture and tone can be noticeable within 4-6 weeks and improvement continues for 6 months. Results typically last between 18 months to 2 years. Some patients may require two or three treatments. Your doctor should assess the degree of skin aging and recommend treatment with reasonable expectations of outcome.
