Used Successfully For Decades

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy has long been a tool used to help the body heal and regenerate healthy tissue. PRP has enjoyed steady popularity in the sports world, and has also been used to treat arthritis and ameliorate chronic wounds. In the past few decades, PRP has been a hit with plastic surgeons who have found it to be extremely effective for hair restoration, skin improvement, and faster healing for surgical procedures.

What Is Plasma?

Plasma is a vital component of blood that helps disseminate essential nutrients, oxygen, and other substances to the cells and tissues, as well as regulate pH balance, blood pressure, and the immune system.  It also contains high levels of platelets and growth factors, which are essential for tissue regeneration and wound healing. Plasma is an incredibly powerful natural defense that helps keep us all healthy.

How Does PRP Work?

In the context of aesthetics, platelet-rich plasma therapy utilizes the power of plasma to help heal, improve, and strengthen targeted areas of the body. The most common treatment areas are stimulating natural hair re-growth for those suffering from baldness or hair loss, and facial rejuvenation for those who seek to diminish the appearance of lines, wrinkles, and facial blemishes.

During PRP therapy, a small amount of blood is drawn from the patient’s arm. The plasma is extracted from the blood and purified in a centrifuge and then reinserted into the patient’s face or head either via injection or microneedling. PRP therapy is not painful, though some patients experience minor discomfort.

Bringing Aesthetics within Reach

PRP is a safe and effective procedure under the care of Tara Cypher, RN, MSN, CANS. Her experience extends through extensive training and client care to bring you the best results available with PRP. Because PRP harnesses the power of your own platelets, one can expect to avoid some sensitivity that may be present with other injections. Attain a youthful glow that is all your own. 

Facial Rejuvenation with PRP

You may have heard of the "vampire facial," which has been brought to the public’s attention thanks to social media and reality television. When injected into the skin, PRP therapy can stimulate the production of collagen and elastin, two proteins that are essential for healthy, youthful-looking skin. This can help:

  • Improve skin texture and tone
  • Reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Minimize the appearance of stretch marks and scars
  • Reduce irregular pigmentation
  • Add volume to the face

What Results Can I Expect?

When PRP is used for facial rejuvenation, patients can expect a radiant, hydrated, and younger-looking skin texture and tone. There will also be a noticeable reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Some patients may observe changes within a few days, while others may require multiple treatments to see significant results. PRP can be combined with other treatments like microneedling or dermal fillers for an even better outcome.

Recovery From PRP Therapy

In most cases, PRP therapy for facial rejuvenation does not require a lengthy recovery process, with most patients resuming normal activity the next day. For some, however, two to three days of downtime may be recommended. Redness and mild skin irritation are the most common side effects, but these abate fairly quickly.

Patients may be advised to lower the frequency of facial washing and avoid skin care products with alcohol until healing is complete.
