Before we reach our 30s we start to lose volume in our faces, which can include under the eyes, in our cheeks, and around our mouths. In our 40s and 50s, the skin and muscles in our faces and necks stretch from collagen and elastin loss. PRP and PRF are all-natural solutions to treat these aging signs and more. These treatments are a great way to battle the signs of aging and regenerate the skin. In fact, doctors have been helping athletes heal injuries for years using PRP and PRF, with the treatment having even been shown to be highly effective at reducing deep wrinkles, crepey skin, fine lines, dark circles, marionette lines, and reversing hair loss. With PRP and PRF injections in Birmingham, MI, our Metro Detroit clients can experience many improvements in their complexion at Skin Boutique. To learn more about this revolutionary treatment, please keep reading below!
PRP injections are a minimally invasive treatment that can help reverse visible signs of aging and skin damage. PRP (Platelet-rich Plasma) is derived from the patient’s blood and contains a high concentration of platelets and growth factors. This treatment harnesses your body’s natural healing ability to facilitate collagen production and wound repair.
As an additional anti-aging measure, Skin Boutique also offers PRF (Platelet-rich Fibrin) injections. Much like PRP injections, PRF can dramatically reduce the signs of aging in the facial creases, under the eyes, around the mouth, the temples, and even the neckbands and décolletage. PRF is the next generation of PRP and is made up of high-concentration of white blood cells, fibrins, and stem cells that are part of the body’s bloodstream. PRF is more of a time-released treatment and offers a “filled” look for up to two weeks while the majority of benefits happen over time.
PRP and PRF can treat a wide range of skin concerns, including:
Our PRP and PRF injection clients in the Metro Detroit area have been able to enjoy the following benefits from their treatments:
The other benefit of this treatment is that by using your blood, there’s no risk of an allergic reaction.
PRP and PRF injections can be ideal for clients who want to improve their skin without undergoing invasive therapies. You must be in good overall health, with no underlying circulatory problems, active infections, or blood-related illnesses.
To determine your compatibility with PRP or PRF injections, an initial consultation is necessary. A physical examination will be performed to evaluate the target areas, and your medical history will be reviewed. You will also be asked about your expectations and desired results. If you have any questions, our Cosmetic Injector will gladly provide you with additional information and clarification.
Your PRP or PRF injection appointment begins with one of our nurses taking vials of your blood then spinning it in a centrifuge, and depending on the speed, will separate the red blood cells from the platelet-rich plasma, or platelet-rich fibrin. 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.
After your PRP or PRF injection therapy, you will need minimal downtime for recovery. You may experience redness, swelling, and bruising, especially at the injection sites. These symptoms should go away within a few days. For the next six hours, avoid touching the treatment area.
You should refrain from applying makeup until the next day. It will be important to keep the skin hydrated by using an approved moisturizer. Be sure to follow our skin rejuvenation expert’s instructions for not using exfoliants, strong cleansers, or other harsh skin care products.
The cost of PRP or PRF injections in Detroit can be impacted by several factors, due to the varying needs and concerns of each individual. The overall price will include the total number of sessions needed to achieve the desired outcome, but the average price for a session is about $500. After coming in for your consultation and having a treatment plan made for you, our Patient Coordinator will be able to give you a more accurate cost breakdown.
