How does PRP work?

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) involves drawing, processing, and reinjecting your own blood. When your blood is processed in a centrifuge machine, the system spins it rapidly, which forces platelets to separate. These isolated platelets have powerful growth factor components attached to them.

Growth factors are what stimulate tissue rejuvenation and healing after you’ve had an injury. Needless to say, the solution of platelet and growth factor-rich plasma — your PRP — is ideal for building new skin tissue, collagen, and other connective tissues when injected into targeted areas.

What are the benefits of PRP?

PRP injections at New Look Laser Medical are one of the most natural ways to repair older or damaged tissues. This revolutionary service is beneficial for:

  • Softening crow’s feet
  • Decreasing horizontal necklines
  • Minimizing fine lines and wrinkles
  • Reducing the appearance of acne scars
  • Improving overall skin tone and texture

In many cases, patients use PRP as an alternative to fillers. Plus, since your practitioner derives PRP from your own blood, it’s entirely safe to use on other areas that are starting to show the signs of aging, too, including your décolleté.

When do results show with PRP?

It takes time for PRP to start working. But rest assured, as soon as you receive PRP injections, those growth factors are hard at work rebuilding and repairing your tissues from the deepest layers. You may start noticing a gradual improvement in your skin within a few weeks of your PRP session at New Look Laser Medical.

It’s common to need a series of about two to four monthly PRP treatments to achieve optimal results. Because PRP is stimulating new tissue growth, your results are entirely long-lasting.

Since the natural effects of aging can continue affecting your skin though, the team at New Look Laser Medical may recommend coming in once or twice per year for follow-up PRP sessions. This helps you continue to stay one step ahead of the effects of aging.
