Over time, our face can lose volume and fullness, resulting in a drawn, tired appearance. Tightening and lifting the skin can restore a refreshed youthfulness.
WHAT IT DOES
At Skin Studio MD, we offer a non-surgical alternative to the traditional facelift. Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) skin rejuvenation uses platelets from your own blood to help your facial tissue heal and grow new cells. PRP can restore volume, plump-out cheek indentations, soften undereye hollows, improve the skin tone, tightness and texture and fill in areas where hyaluronic acid fillers cannot reach or are not safe to use.
HOW IT WORKS
A small amount of your blood is drawn and placed in a sterile tube that is spun down in a centrifuge to separate the different components of the blood. Red and white blood cells are divided from the platelets and the plasma. The plasma then contains a higher than normal number of platelets, hence the name ‘platelet rich plasma.’
WHAT TO EXPECT
HOW IT FEELS
While the PRP is being prepared, your skin will be cleansed and prepared for the treatment. The procedure is relatively painless.
Treatments typically take 15-20 minutes.
Mild swelling, redness or bruising may appear following this treatment, but should fade within 1-3 days. You will be able to resume all regular daily activities immediately following this treatment.
Results begin to show 3-4 weeks after the treatment session and continue to improve with time. Three treatment sessions are generally recommended, spaced 1-2 months apart, to achieve optimal results.
