Facial Platelet Rich Plasma for Anti-Aging


PRP, or Platelet-Rich Plasma, is a safe and natural anti-aging procedure that can help reduce wrinkles and other signs of aging. It involves taking a sample of blood from the patient and then spinning it in a centrifuge to separate out the platelets. The platelets are then injected back into the patient's facial area, where they stimulate the body's natural healing processes and collagen production. The benefits of facial PRP include:

To get started with facial PRP, you'll need to find a qualified physician who is experienced in this type of procedure. It's important to have an understanding of anatomy as well as an understanding of how platelets work in order to ensure safety and effectiveness. We will discuss with you what areas need treatment and how many treatments will be needed in order to achieve your desired results. We will also take into consideration any underlying health issues that might affect your results and tailor the treatment accordingly. We start by applying a topical anesthetic to the areas to be treated for about 25 minutes.  Next, the treatment itself usually takes about 30 minutes to complete and involves injecting small amounts of PRP into specific areas on your face using a very thin needle and a micro needling device. You may experience some slight discomfort during this process but it should be relatively painless overall. For best results, many people opt for multiple treatments over several weeks or months for optimal results. Overall, facial PRP is a safe and natural way to reduce wrinkles and other signs of aging without resorting to more invasive procedures like surgery or injectable fillers. You can expect subtle yet noticeable improvements over time with this procedure so it’s worth considering if you’re looking for an anti-aging solution that’s both affordable and effective.  You can also opt for Botox on a different date.
