Platelet rich plasma injections, or PRP injections for short, can help with skin rejuvenation by taking a product from your own body and injecting it into the areas in which you want smoother, younger-looking skin. It is done by drawing a small amount of your blood and spinning it in a centrifuge to separate the red and white blood cells from the plasma and platelets. The solution that is left is rich in platelets. It is then injected into the skin in conjunction with micro-needling to promote an improved appearance.
As you age, your body naturally does not produce as much collagen as it did before. It takes collagen to keep the skin looking firm and full. As its level decreases, the skin will lose its firmness and begin to sag. This causes wrinkles and lines to develop, leading to an older appearance.
By promoting the growth of additional collagen, PRP injections can help restore the skin to a texture and smoothness that is closer to what it was before the collagen level in the skin began to decrease. Since platelets help tissue to heal and grow new cells, it helps the skin in that manner as well.
Other types of injections fill the area under the skin with a material in order to provide a fuller appearance. These fillers are artificial, plus they must be repeated every year or so. PRP injections are different because they stimulate the skin to rejuvenate itself.
There is practically no risk of harmful side effects from PRP injections since the material that is being used came from your own body. There is virtually no downtime required for recovery.
You should begin to see improvement in your skin in about three to four weeks. The improvements will continue after that. It typically takes a series of treatment sessions to get the optimal results. They should be spaced a set amount of time apart for proper skin healing.
