Platelet-rich plasma, or PRP, is a mixture of your blood cells and plasma, the liquid portion of your blood. By injecting this combination into low skin spots, PRP can rejuvenate your skin from the inside out. You basically create faux collagen that stimulates the production of your body’s own collagen.
How It Works
PRP therapy works by stimulating new collagen production using cellular and fibroblast activation. Basically, the PRP creates a chemical reaction that causes your own body’s cells to regenerate the lacking collagen.
A small injection of your blood—or a sample of your blood products—is collected and processed during a treatment. The mixture is then injected into the tissue to stimulate natural collagen growth. This can help with:
- Hair loss
- Stretch marks
- Acne scarring
- Uneven skin tone
- Fine lines
- Blotchy skin
- Loss of volume
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Skin laxity
- Double chin
PRP Injections for Facial Rejuvenation
The PRP injection method works by injecting the growth factor of the plasma, which is concentrated with platelets, into facial areas in need of rejuvenation. This may include the nasolabial folds, crow’s feet, lip lines, neck creases, and the perioral lines. Stem cell growth factors can also be used for fine lines, wrinkles, and facial rejuvenation.
The PRP injection is painless, and in some cases, you may not feel any discomfort. The injections may sting or burn a tiny bit, but it’s a very minimal feeling. During the procedure, your skin may feel warm or tingly. You may have a small bruise at the injection site, but it should disappear within a few days.
Why You Should Get PRP Therapy
1. Stimulate Collagen Production
PRP is an excellent way to stimulate collagen production. Fillers and injections can help, but PRP is a natural way to stimulate your body to produce collagen. This is the same way that fillers and injections work, but PRP is a more natural way to stimulate collagen production.
2. Address Hyperpigmentation
PRP is a safe and effective treatment for hyperpigmentation, which can be caused by sun damage or acne scars. It takes multiple treatments to work, and results may vary from one person to another.
3. Support Hair Growth
If you are experiencing thinning hair or hair loss, PRP may be able to help. It can help to stimulate hair follicles, allowing them to grow more hair. PRP may also be effective for alopecia, hair loss from an autoimmune disease.
3. Fade Acne Scars
PRP can help to fade acne scars. This is because it encourages your skin to produce more collagen. This can help to reduce and even eliminate stretch marks and scars. If you have deep scars and wrinkles, PRP will not help, but it can certainly lessen the surface ones.
4. Plump Sagging Skin
PRP is a good way to plump sagging skin. It does this naturally by increasing the volume in your skin tissue. This can help to stop sagging and restore your youthful, healthy skin.
5. Reduce Some Wrinkles
PRP can reduce some wrinkles, but it depends on the type of wrinkles. For example, collagen production can reduce neck creases, but it won’t work for crow’s feet.
The PRP injection is a great way to help alleviate the signs of aging. It can help increase the volume of your skin and reduce signs of aging. It can also help to reduce acne scarring and hyperpigmentation. If you want to learn more about PRP injections for facial rejuvenation, NULUK AESTHETICS can help.
