Platelet-rich Plasma injections are a method in which a patient’s own blood is used to discard old poorly functioning collagen and produce new healthy colagen. By micro-needling or injecting the PRP around the eyes and cheeks, we boost the body’s natural ability to produce collagen and elastin. This helps the skin look younger, more firm, and glow – all done by using your body’s own cells.
PRP treatments begin by a trained phlebotomist or nurse collecting the patient’s blood. It is then spun in a centrifuge to separate the red blood cells from the platelets.
After being separated in the centrifuge, the PRP is ready to be injected. Treatment areas are numbed before injection. The desired results will determine how many injections will be done. We generally include a cheek lift and under eye injections.
It’s recommended to have repeat treatments 6 to 12 months after the initial treatment.
