Did you know that one of the newest and most effective treatment methods for skin issues is PRP injections? This is similar to PRP treatments for other conditions. Here in the Fall River, MA area, we proudly offer this revolutionary treatment for those men and women who are experiencing various skin problems. Below, we outline the treatment and how it works.
How PRP is Formulated
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is formulated using the client’s own blood. This sounds a bit weird, but it’s really a natural preparation that carries no risk of side effects or contamination. The blood is drawn and spun at a very high speed in a special type of centrifuge. The plasma and platelets are separated from the red cells. The plasma is drawn off little by little so that the final concentration of platelets is quite high.
This mix is made into a thin gel, and a special solution is added to help activate the platelets. The blood platelets contain proteins and other growth factors including epidermal factors and fibroblast factors. These help to accelerate tissue growth after an injury has occurred by acting as signaling mechanisms for tissue creation and cell growth. They also help for skin rejuvenation.
Treating Skin Issues with PRP
We may inject the mix directly into the problem areas. Or we may apply it topically utilizing specialized techniques. It all depends on the unique situation. Visual improvement may not be noticed immediately. It takes time for the PRP to get to work and reverse certain skin issues.
Good candidates for this treatment are in good overall health and have skin issues that the treatment can correct. It’s also important to have realistic expectations regarding the treatment and the results. Various other skin rejuvenation treatments are available, but most of these involve using harsher techniques. PRP is a natural option that does not require much effort on the part of the client.
