PRP is the answer for many Huntersville, NC residents who are looking for younger-looking, more radiant, skin. As we age, wrinkles and fine lines can start to develop on the face, leaving people looking older than they are, or feel, while also impacting their self-esteem. This can lead residents to search for ways to rejuvenate their skin, without having to go under the knife.
For these people, PRP is a good option, either on its own or in combination with another treatment. This treatment is relatively quick, often lasting 30 minutes to an hour, and can set you on the path for youthful skin.
How PRP works
PRP stands for platelet-rich plasma. This plasma is found in your own blood and is what helps wounds and injuries heal. Here’s how we harvest this and use it to fight signs of aging.
- A small amount of blood is drawn from your body, typically from your arm.
- The blood is spun in a centrifuge, which separates the PRP from the blood.
- The PRP is then placed in a vial so it can be injected into the skin.
Once the PRP is injected into the area of concern, it signals a boost in collagen and elastin, which adds volume and leaves your skin smoother and healthier.
PRP can be done on its own, but at Carolina Age Management Institute (CAMI), we often combine PRP treatments with microneedling. Microneedling uses tiny needs to penetrate the skin, which can trigger the skin to heal itself using collagen and elastin.
When we combine PRP and micro-needling, the PRP can penetrate the tiny holes micro-needling creates. This can offer better results than just doing one or the other. Our team will walk you through your options and ensure the correct treatment, or combination of treatments is offered to you.
Even when combined with micro-needling, this offers many benefits. Patients should experience no pain, though a numbing agent can be applied beforehand if desired, and they can return to work right after treatment. Plus, your results are long-lasting and will improve over the first few weeks following treatment.
