Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)
PRP therapy; where the patient’s own blood is drawn and centrifuged to separate platelet-rich plasma and injected back into your skin; is carried out to start the rejuvenation process. This provides improved skin quality, color, and texture.
It is one of the most popular lunchtime procedures. You walk into the clinic, do the procedure lasting approximately one hour post which you may resume normal activity. The needle marks from the injections heal almost immediately. Some people, depending on how thin their skin is, may have extended redness or bruise.
Effects of PRP may be seen in the next 3-6 weeks. It can last from one to two years, which is pretty impressive for a nonsurgical procedure.
