Within a few weeks of treatment, an overall improvement in skin hydration, texture and tone can be seen. New collagen and blood vessels begin to grow after three to six weeks, and reduction of fine lines and wrinkles and volume correction happens over the next three to six months. While it creates a longer-lasting effect in the skin, it does take time to work. For individuals looking for an immediate effect, PRP can be combined with hyaluronic acid fillers, such as Juvederm, for quick volume correction. Fillers provide a matrix for building new collagen and can be used to accelerate and sustain the benefits of PRP.
Platelet rich plasma (PRP) is an extract of your own blood that contains three to five times more platelets, growth factors and active proteins for tissue and injury healing. It has been used medically for years to accelerate wound healing; repair tendons, ligaments and joint damage; heal wounds and skin grafts; and help regrow muscle and bone. When PRP is placed back into the skin by injection, it initiates a localized stem cell response. Over the weeks and months following treatment, this stem cell response recruits collagen-producing cells called fibroblasts. The fibroblasts replace tissue that has been damaged or lost through the aging process with healthier collagen that results in skin that looks refreshed and rejuvenated.

before A few simple guidelines before your treatment can make a difference between a good result and a fantastic one.
- Avoid aspirin (or any medications that thin the blood like Advil, Motrin, St. Johns Wort, vitamin E...) for two weeks before the procedure to minimize bruising.
- Have something to eat and drink before coming in for the session; drink lots of fluids before coming to office as well so that you are well hydrated for a good blood draw.
The therapy begins by first drawing the patient’s blood into a specially prepared test tube. The tube is then spun twice in a special centrifuge. This concentrates and separates the platelet-rich plasma from the rest of the blood. After numbing the area being treated, the PRP is injected into the problem areas using very small needles similar to those used in Botox injections. Then, the remaining platelet-poor plasma is placed on the face and infused into the skin using PCIT (microneedling).
