PRP Therapy in Los Angeles, CA
Dark circles under the eyes and sagging skin around the eyes, nose and mouth are common side effects of aging. With platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy, these common signs of aging can be corrected and reversed. Skin Deep Laser Med Spa performs PRP therapy on people living in Los Angeles and Pasadena, CA, and the surrounding communities who want to look and feel younger and more refreshed.
What is PRP Therapy?
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy is newer skin rejuvenation technology that uses components in the patient’s own blood to increase collagen production and restore their skin to a more youthful condition. It has been used in other areas of medicine and is now being applied to cosmetic dermatology and skin rejuvenation. When high concentrations of platelets are injected into the skin, they act as a facilitator to spur collagen production to revitalize skin tissue leading to a smoother, healthier complexion. PRP therapy is also used to treat fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes and mouth by acting as a filler to smooth the skin in those areas. PRP therapy is often used in conjunction with other treatments, such as micro-needling.
Benefits of PRP Therapy
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy has been used to treat wounds and other injuries in other areas of medicine. Because it has so many healing properties, it is an excellent cosmetic treatment offering the following benefits:
- Quick, in-office procedure
- Little to no recovery
- Long lasting results up to a year
- No risk of allergy or negative reactions to treatments
Is PRP Therapy Right for Me?
PRP therapy is an excellent skin rejuvenation treatment for you if you have fine lines and wrinkles, sagging skin, dark circles around the eyes and other skin imperfections. The advantage of PRP therapy is that the physician injects your own blood into your skin tissue, removing any risk of a negative reaction. As with any treatment, to determine if this is the right treatment for you, we recommend you schedule a consultation.
How is PRP Therapy Performed?
When performing PRP therapy, a small amount of blood is drawn from patients into a tube. The tube is placed in a centrifuge device that spins and separates the stem cells, growth factors and platelets. The amount of blood with the platelets and growth factors is called platelet-rich plasma. Once it is prepared, the PRP is injected into the targeted areas of the facial skin. The entire procedure is quick and virtually painless. For those with aversions to needles, a topical anesthetic may be applied, although most patients report no discomfort with the treatments.
PRP Therapy Recovery
The recovery from PRP therapy may involve some redness and swelling for the first few days following the treatments but quickly subsides. Within three to four weeks, the results begin to reveal smoother, younger looking skin. For most patients, several treatments are recommended with one to two months between each treatment to allow for healing. Once complete, the results last for about a year.
