Top 3 Questions About PRP Therapy
If you are suffering from skin imperfections that won’t go away with traditional treatments, then PRP therapy may be the right solution for you. Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy is known to accelerate wound healing and rejuvenate the skin for a fresh, healthy glow. Below are some of the most asked questions about PRP therapy to help give you an idea if this is the procedure you are looking for.
PRP stands for platelet-rich plasma. It is a bioactive stimulator that stimulates natural tissue regeneration and collagen production for healthier, brighter skin. This treatment also works for hair growth. At Park Avenue Medical Spa, we harvest a small amount of blood using a standard hypodermic needle. Then, the sample is spun in a centrifuge to separate the growth factors and platelet-rich plasma from the red blood cells. It is then injected into the predetermined treatment area. Treatment is quick, and it typically takes about one hour to treat one area.
2: What Can PRP Therapy Achieve?
There are many benefits to PRP therapy. Patients can enjoy smoother, thicker, more youthful skin. PRP can increase collagen, restore soft skin, and produce a radiant complexion. It also:
- Minimizes the appearance of scars
- Addresses stretch marks
- Replenishes lost facial volume
- Restores hair loss
3: Is PRP Worth It?
Yes! Patients who undergo PRP therapy notice their results gradually and have confirmed that they may last up to 18 months. Repeat treatments, scheduled six weeks apart, may be necessary to achieve and maintain the results you desire. PRP therapy patients are thrilled with their fresh, rejuvenated appearance as it leaves their complexion softer, brighter, and more youthful!
