Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a typical form of regenerative medicine derived from your blood and has been used widely to manage medical and aesthetic concerns. It involves high concentrations of platelets from your blood; hence it can facilitate and speed up your body’s natural healing process. Daniel Moghadam, MD, a specially trained anti-aging and regenerative medicine physician, offers PRP in Santa Monica at Modern Aesthetica to manage vast concerns ranging from injuries to skin rejuvenation. The treatment provides a variety of benefits, and here are a few skin rejuvenation benefits you should consider.
Stimulates Collagen Production
As you grow old, the rate of collagen production drops in your body and continues declining dramatically at a significant rate throughout the rest of your life unless you do something about it. When collagen production decreases, several signs of unhealthy skin become visible, and you might experience wrinkles, fine lines, or severe folds. The growth factors in PRP treatment encourage collagen production, which can reverse the signs of aging.
It is Nearly Painless
Before your PRP facial, your provider will help you prepare effectively to improve your comfort. The treatment area is thoroughly but gently cleansed to eliminate any dust, pollutant, makeup, dirt, or any other imperfection on your skin that can react negatively to the treatment. Although you might feel the treatment being applied, you should not experience any discomfort or pain. Please let your provider know if you feel otherwise.
The Treatment is Completed Quickly
Although the PRP process seems like it can be complicated and take a while, that is not the case. The treatment typically takes about 30-60 minutes, depending on your needs and the treatment area. During this time, your provider will collect your blood in syringes, and place it on the centrifuge to process it. The preparation process does not take long, and your blood’s components are separated and made ready for transfer and injection.
The Results are Long Lasting
Some of the other anti-aging treatments last for 1-2 weeks before you will already need another one. But, you might not require another PRP facial for up to one or two years later. Besides, you will need fewer treatments overall when compared to traditional microneedling. You will only need half the conventional micro needling therapies for skin rejuvenation results and get the same results with PRP enhanced microneedling. For acne scars, they will be gone within two to four treatment sessions, unlike with many other treatment options.
As with most facials, you might experience undesirable side effects for several days before you can enjoy your results. But this is not the case with a PRP facial. The injuries and effects caused during the treatment heal quickly and start the healing process the moment they are inflicted. Therefore, you’ll immediately be on your way to younger, healthier skin without having to endure 2-3 weeks of looking swollen, red, and damaged before being able to see benefits like you would with other treatments. Essentially, you won’t have to take one step back before you take two steps forward.
Fewer Preparations are Required
Another phenomenal component of a PRP facial is that less work is required for the preparation of the treatment. Your provider will give you instructions during the consultation for what to do leading up to the treatment, making it easy for you to be ready. Generally, you may only be required to wear sunscreen, drink plenty of water for the three days prior to your appointment, and avoid makeup, particularly on your treatment day.
