Plasma Rich Protein
Do you want to use the power of your own body’s healing mechanisms for anti-aging? PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) and PRF (Platelet Rich Fibrin) injections can help restore facial aging with the usage of growth factors derived from your own blood in order to do so. This appeals to many patients as a natural way to help fight against aging by minimizing wrinkles, strengthening skin and diminishing pigment and sun damage.
We are now able to effectively treat patients of various skin types, different age groups and diverse demands with our Sciton laser. Treatments can be customized to include smaller amounts of downtime while successfully improving your skin.
Frequently Asked Questions
PRP stands for Platelet Rich Plasma. PRF stand for Platelet Rich Fibrin. As part of the body’s healing ability, platelets and other components in human blood migrate to the point of care. Platelets are well known to release numerous growth factors that respond to tissue injury and initiate and promote the conditions for healing. This is used for many conditions, including anti-aging treatments and hair loss.
Blood will be drawn from your arm to collect and spin down into platelet rich plasma and/or fibrin. The treatment area is numbed and the PRP/PRF is then injected into areas such as the undereyes, smile lines and into acne scars. Recovery is virtually non-existent as it is a non-surgical procedure, with usually, only slight tenderness for a day or two in the areas treated. Bruising and swelling may occur post injections but will heal quickly.
Treatment sessions can vary from patient to patient, depending on treatment areas and goals desired. Generally, there are 3 treatments sessions recommended for an area, approximately 4-6 weeks apart.
Treatment cost is $600 per session. Please call our office regarding packages and specials for this procedure.
