Using your own platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is another way to battle the signs of aging and regenerate the skin. In fact, doctors have been helping athletes heal injuries for years using PRP.
PRP has been shown highly-effective at reducing wrinkles, regenerating skin and even reversing hair loss. PRP can also address crepey skin, fine lines, dark circles, deep wrinkles, marionette lines and more.
PRP can treat a wide range of skin concerns, including:
- Wrinkles in the face, neckbands and chest
- Aged and sun-damaged skin
- Crow’s feet
- Fine lines
- Smile lines
- Under eye hollows
- Skin texture and tone
- Deep depressions around the nose and mouth
- Volume loss in the cheeks
- Sagging around the jawline
- Dehydrated skin
At Skin Boutique, we often couple PRP injections with other treatments, including microneedling and injectables like Botox, Dysport and dermal filler.
Your PRP injection appointment begins with one of our nurses taking vials of your blood then spinning it in a centrifuge, which separates the red blood cells from the platelet-rich plasma. Then, it can be strategically injected to address your concerns. Your results will continue to progress as collagen builds and cells are regenerated in the weeks and months ahead.
The other benefit of this treatment is that by using your own blood, there’s no rise of an allergic reaction.
