How PRP Treatments Can Turn Back The Clock
- Posted on: Aug 31 2023
If you’re looking for a clinically proven, natural cosmetic procedure to improve your skin quality, platelet-rich plasma (PRP) treatments may be for you.
PRP treatments have been shown in clinical settings to demonstrate “excellent” results in age-related skin conditions from wrinkles to dark circles.
Let’s learn more about PRP treatments from why they work and how Ophthalmic Plastic & Cosmetic Surgery makes them even more effective.
What Is PRP?
Platelet-rich plasma is derived from a sample of your blood. The sample taken is processed to include only plasma, the portion of blood containing water, salts, essential proteins, and platelets, the ingredient of blood integral in stopping bleeding and promoting recovery.
Why Is PRP Treatment So Effective At Reversing Signs Of Aging?
Compared to other cosmetic corrective procedures, PRP utilizes your own blood. This minimizes the risk of allergic reactions which would otherwise dampen or impede the recovery process.
PRP encourages the regrowth of cells and cellular function. As we age, vital proteins in the skin, such as collagen and elastin, decrease in concentration. This can lead to sagging skin, wrinkles, and other cosmetic issues. PRP encourages the body to increase the production of these vital proteins by creating an environment favorable to repair.
Results from a PRP injection can last for months and repeated use has been shown to increase the duration of results; however, results may vary from person to person. A consultation with a dermatologist or specialist can help you better understand what to expect.
