Benefits Of PRP For Increased Collagen

Benefits Of PRP For Increased Collagen

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is a revolutionary new treatment that offers a natural, non-invasive way to rejuvenate your skin and repair the signs of aging.

The treatment involves reinjecting your own platelet-rich plasma into your skin, delivering an abundance of growth factors that stimulate the body’s natural healing response. This helps you to achieve total rejuvenation.

What are platelets?

Platelets are tiny blood cells responsible for clotting in case of injury or trauma. When you have a cut, for example, platelets get activated and start to release fibroblast growth factors (FGFs), which help heal your wound faster by stimulating collagen production and cell proliferation.

What does PRP do?

PRP is injected into the skin to stimulate this same process, but on a much deeper level than standard treatments such as dermal fillers or Botox® injections do. The results are more significant with fewer treatments over time and less risk of complications like bruising or swelling.

With that being said – here are five reasons you should give it a try:

  1. Total Rejuvenation

PRP stimulates collagen and elastin production which thickens and tightens your skin, effectively smoothing wrinkles and fine lines. Because it boosts collagen, it’s also a great treatment for improving overall skin texture and tone. It’s particularly good for people who suffer from rosacea or acne.

  1. Treats Delicate & Hard To Reach Areas

PRP is extremely effective for treating difficult-to-treat areas (i.e. under the eye), where you probably often notice signs of aging first.

The under-eye area is one of the most delicate and sensitive areas on your face. It is made up of thin layers of skin that are very easily damaged by PRP or other treatments. By treating this area with PRP, you can achieve significant results without the risk of damaging the skin or causing any side effects.

  1. Natural Cosmetic Injectable

PRP uses your own natural elements without the addition of any foreign products. As stated earlier in this article, the treatment works by drawing a small sample of your blood, which is then spun in a centrifuge for approximately 5 minutes to separate the plasma from the other blood particles. The platelet-rich plasma is then reinjected back into the treatment area to stimulate collagen and elastin production.

  1. Safe

PRP treatment helps stimulate the growth of new tissue and heal wounds. It’s been around for a long time—since the 1970s, in fact. Since then, it’s become well-recognized and used in both hospital settings and sports medicine for its effective wound-healing properties.

  1. Long-Lasting Results

Results from PRP take between three to four weeks to appear but are long-lasting, typically lasting 12 to 18 months after an initial series of three treatments. The procedure can be repeated as often as desired.

We use PRP with our patients that are looking to reduce their fine lines and wrinkles, as well as for those who want to improve the texture of their skin. The PRP is injected directly into the skin above where the procedure will take place. The injection stimulates collagen production, which helps tighten the skin and reduce fine lines. This treatment is perfect for those who want to look younger without undergoing surgery.
