Have you heard of the latest health trend? PRP, or platelet rich plasma, is being used in a number of treatments from orthopedic medicine to cosmetic aesthetics. Platelet rich plasma is derived by concentrating the presence of platelets from blood drawn from the patient. The platelets are then suspended in the patient’s own plasma to create PRP. Here are some benefits that you can enjoy with PRP used for anti-aging.
PRP can be applied topically for many different skin benefits. The PRP stimulates the rejuvenation process that exists naturally in the skin. It promotes secretion of collagen and elastin, both of which are necessary for healthy and youthful skin. This can reverse the effects of UV sun damage, smoking, pollution, and other things that affect our skin every day.
Under the Eye
PRP injections have been found to be very effective in treating the area under the eye. Platelet rich plasma injections have been proven to eliminate the discoloration of under-eye baggage, as well as smooth out the lines and wrinkles associated with baggy under-eyes. This is a very effective treatment.
Safe and Effective
PRP, whether applied topically or as an injection, is completely safe and effective. Because PRP is concentrated platelets from your own blood, there are no harmful side effects from unnatural sources. PRP is also a relatively painless and minimally invasive procedure that can be done right in the confines of our office.
