Aging is a fact of life. Whether we like it or not, our skin will lose volume and elasticity, our bodies will begin to sag, and we may start to feel less vibrant than we did in our youth. However, thanks to the help of science, there are countless treatments available to help ward off these inconvenient signs of aging, such as PRP therapy. Wondering when’s the best time to start this treatment? Here is what you need to know.
PRP Uses Your Own Blood
If you’re new to the concept of PRP, rest assured, it’s relatively simple and straightforward. Platelet-rich plasma is naturally found in the blood and contains growth factors that help the body to stimulate the growth of new cells. In PRP therapy, the PRP is separated from the blood and injected into the treatment area in order to promote new cell growth that can add volume to the face, reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and so much more.
PRP Can Be Used On the Face and Scalp
Two of the most common uses for PRP are to plump up and revive the face, as well as to promote the growth of new hair. In both cases, the process is simple. A sample of your blood is taken, spun in a centrifuge, and then the PRP is injected into the treatment area. Due to the fact that PRP works with the body’s natural healing processes, you can expect the results to take a few weeks to become evident. However, this treatment is excellent for creating natural looking, impressive results in the long-term. Downtime from your treatment is minimal, and in most cases, you will be able to return to your normal activities within one day.
PRP Can Be Combined with Microneedling
The process of microneedling on its own is excellent for rejuvenating the face. However, when combined with PRP, you will experience enhanced results. If you are considering combining PRP with your microneedling procedure, this is something you should discuss with Dr. Dawli during your consultation. Based on your unique treatment, we will calculate the total cost at the time of your consultation.
