PRP is a natural method of skin rejuvenation that uses the body’s own healing potential to improve the texture, tone, and overall quality of the skin. This procedure can be utilized on its own to give patients beautiful results, or in conjunction with other skin revitalization treatments to increase their effectiveness.
Orlando Dermatology is proud to include PRP skin rejuvenation amongst the several effective skin renewal procedures that our practice offers to patients. If you’d like more information about any of the treatments we offer or are interested in scheduling a consultation appointment, contact us today!
What is PRP?
Also referred to as PRP, platelet rich plasma is a natural component of the blood that is isolated and used for both aesthetic and medical treatments. At Orlando Dermatology, we’re proud to use PRP for skin rejuvenation on the face, neck, and other areas of the body. This treatment uses the body’s own natural mechanisms of healing the rejuvenate and revitalize the skin, leaving patients with a younger, healthier, fresher looking appearance.
PRP skin rejuvenation can be used to correct:
- Fine lines
- Loose skin
- Uneven texture
- Enlarged pores
How Does PRP Skin Rejuvenation Work?
Within the body, the blood transports nutrients and oxygen to the organs, tissues, and cells, both maintaining the health of these structures and healing them as they become damaged. The plasma component of the blood contains a wide variety of healing growth factors that can repair damaged tissues and create new, healthy cells.
During a PRP skin rejuvenation treatment, a small amount of blood is drawn from the patient. This blood is then processed carefully through a centrifuge. Once the PRP has been adequately isolated, it is reinjected into the patient’s desired treatment areas. There, the growth factors and nutrients trigger the body’s natural healing process, spurring the creation of newer, healthier skin tissues and the strengthening pre-existing collagen and elastin fibers. Over time, this results in skin that is soft, smooth, and free of many of the signs of aging.
Each PRP session takes a short 30 minutes to complete and brings patients little, if any, discomfort or downtime.
Am I a Candidate for Treatment?
Because PRP uses the body’s own healing compounds to rejuvenate and revitalize the skin, this treatment is safe enough for nearly any patient to undergo. However, because this treatment may be dangerous for patients with certain blood clotting and healing disorders, it is important for all interested individuals to first schedule a consultation appointment to see if they qualify for treatment.
PRP skin rejuvenation is a safe, effective, and natural way for patients to fight back against the signs of aging. If you’d like more information about this exciting treatment or would like to schedule a consultation appointment, contact Orlando Dermatology today!
