Most of the signs of aging happen as the skin becomes damaged and loses its youthful elasticity due to exposure to UV or other damaging agents. Wrinkles, sun spots, dark circles under the eyes and even scars can affect your appearance and self-esteem, and all are signs of your skin losing its structural integrity. Luckily, there have been plenty of technological and medical advances that have resulted in effective treatments that heal the skin without the need for cosmetic surgery. Platelet-rich plasma, or PRP, is one of the most effective treatments available. Contact the trusted experts at Neo Skin Center to book your first appointment and learn more.
How Does PRP Work?
PRP is rapidly becoming the best non-surgical treatment to rejuvenate skin. While your blood is a liquid, it contains a number of solid components such as red and white blood cells. When you remove these components from the blood, you’re left with plasma that is filled with healing and rejuvenation factors. The PRP treatment uses plasma taken from your own body to promote healing and stimulate new cell growth by bathing them in this rich soup of healing factors.
PRP has been shown to be effective in athletes with tendonitis or other sports injuries, speeding up the body’s natural healing process and encouraging new cells to grow. It makes sense, then, that the same principle can be applied to the other areas of the body, resulting in younger-looking, more plump and elastic, healthy and rejuvenated skin.
The Benefits of PRP Treatment
- The treatment is completely natural and there’s no chance for an allergic reaction
- The treatment has been shown to remove the signs of aging by firming up loose skin
- It can heal scar tissue
- Results are visible in just a few days
When you schedule your PRP treatment at the Neo Skin Center, our specialist will first discuss the procedure with you and whether you’re a suitable candidate. After your consultation, we will draw a small amount of blood and use a centrifuge to separate the blood plasma from the rest of the components. A numbing cream will be applied to ensure your comfort during the procedure while the plasma is separated. Our specialist will then inject the plasma into the areas you would like to treat. The entire process generally takes less than an hour depending on your particular needs.
