Platelet Rich Plasma
Platelet Rich Plasma, or PRP, can also be used to treat the facial area in order to stimulate the regeneration of collagen and elastin. Collagen, which aids in tightening of our skin, and elastin, which creates the bounce back or flexibility of the skin, both diminishes as we age. PRP can effectively enhance our bodies ability to create these substances.
The human body has a remarkable ability to heal itself. Regeneration of healthy skin begins with the stimulation of the cells that produce collagen and elastin. As the new collagen matures, it begins to shrink, tighten and strengthen the skin.
Improvement in skin texture and tone is noticeable within 3 weeks. Full collagen regeneration takes approximately 3 months. Two to three treatment sessions are generally recommended, spaced 1-2 months apart.
