PRP Facial rejuvenation uses injections of platelet-rich plasma (PRP), to naturally restore a more youthful facial appearance.
PRP has the ability to naturally heal and repair tissue through increasing the production of collagen and elastin. Additionally, within the PRP are molecules called growth factors that amplify this process. These injections work on a superficial and deep level, addressing textural concerns of fine lines, wrinkles, scarring, as well as restoring volume to hollows and sunken in features.
PRP can be injected throughout the entire face. It is commonly used to minimize scars, and smooth fine lines between the eyebrows and the tissue above the upper lip. It is highly effective for treating hollows and dark circles under the eyes. It also works as a beautiful natural filler for cheek augmentation and reduction of nasolabial folds.
The number of treatments will depend on which area is being treated and the patient’s desired goal. Generally, it is recommended to begin with 2-3 treatments spaced 4-6 weeks apart. Once your desired appearance is met, maintenance treatments are frequently done every 6-12 months.
Results can be seen a few weeks after the first treatment. It takes collagen 3 months to build, therefore results continuously improve over time. For those addressing more significant volume loss, it may take 2-3 treatments to achieve optimal results.
Immediately following the procedure, swelling, bruising, and redness at the injection sites are common. Patients are recommended to refrain from exercise for the remainder of the day, but it is safe the next day. Regular activities such as work and errands can be resumed the same day as treatment depending on the nature of work, and tolerance to treatment.
