What are PRP Injections?
Platelet rich plasma, or “PRP,” is a part of your blood that promotes healing of ligaments, tendons, joints and other anatomical structures. PRP can also be used for cosmetic treatments to help the skin self-repair, thus softening lines and wrinkles. PRP works by mimicking the properties of surrounding cells and providing extra support for aesthetic issues. You may want to consider PRP injections if you prefer to avoid treatments that use synthetic substances, such as the neurotoxin found in Botox®.
Benefits of PRP Injections
PRP injections use components of your own blood to help the body remedy cosmetic problems, such as lines, wrinkles, and scars. When the treatment is used to rejuvenate the face, it is often referred to as a “vampire facelift.”
Am I a Candidate for PRP Injections?
Because PRP injections use components of your own blood, it is generally considered safe for most patients. Certain medical conditions and medications may preclude you as a candidate for PRP injections. The other consideration for PRP injections is the nature of your cosmetic goals. Dr. Park helps you determine if PRP injections are the best option during your consultation appointment.
What to Expect from PRP Injections
Several steps are used for PRP injections. First, we draw a small amount of your blood. Second, the blood is placed in a centrifuge where it is spun to separate the components. The platelet rich plasma is drawn into a syringe and injected into the skin. PRP injections provide a gradual improvement to lines, wrinkles, and scars. You may need a follow-up treatment to maintain the results.
