Platelet-Rich Plasma: The Modern Fountain of Youth?

How a Simple Procedure Can Turn Back the Years

 

Aging is only natural. And while that’s easy to say, it’s a harsh reality when your reflection in the mirror starts to look like a stranger.

Humans have tried to avoid aging for millennia – from milk and honey baths to herbal hair formulas and beyond. Today, it seems like the only answers are expensive creams or surgeries.

The truth is, you don’t have to resort to invasive cosmetic procedures to look as young as you feel. By using your own body’s rejuvenating resources through platelet-rich plasma, you can enhance your skin’s tone and texture and slow the signs of aging.

What is Platelet-Rich Plasma?

Platelet-rich plasma (also known as PRP) is a concentrated component of blood. As its name suggests, PRP is rich in platelets, the tiny blood cells that allow your blood to clot. Platelets also contain various growth factors and proteins that are involved in tissue repair and regeneration, which make them essential for wound healing.

How Does PRP Work?

PRP is not made in a lab or taken from plasma donors – your own blood plasma is used during PRP treatments.

To create PRP, we draw a small amount of blood and then use a centrifuge machine to separate the platelets from the other components of the blood (such as red blood cells and white blood cells).

The resulting PRP solution is then applied to the targeted area of the body, such as joints, muscles, tendons, or skin as an injection or microneedling treatment.

When is PRP Used?

Because PRP has powerful healing properties, it is commonly used to treat issues like pain, tissue damage, inflammation, and skincare.

  • Orthopedic Injuries
    PRP injections are often used to treat musculoskeletal injuries like tendonitis, ligament injuries, and osteoarthritis. Researchers believe the growth factors in PRP stimulate the body’s natural tissue repair, reduce inflammation, and promote general healing.
  • Dermatology and Aesthetics
    PRP is sometimes used in cosmetic procedures because of its ability to enhance skin rejuvenation and hair growth. PRP is typically injected into the skin or combined with microneedling to enhance collagen production and improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and scars.
  • Surgery and Wound Healing
    PRP may be applied during certain surgical and dental procedures to enhance tissue healing and reduce complications.

The Youth-Boosting Benefits of Platelet-Rich Plasma

Platelet-rich plasma has become both a popular beauty trend and dermatologist-approved therapy. Here’s how PRP can be used to rejuvenate your skin and hair:

  • Improves skin tone and texture
    PRP can help improve overall skin tone and texture, making the skin look more radiant and youthful. It can help with issues like uneven skin tone, rough texture, and dull complexion.
  • Repairs sun-damaged skin
    The growth factors in PRP may aid in repairing sun-damaged skin by stimulating the regeneration of healthier skin cells and increasing the production of collagen.
  • Improves scar healing
    PRP has been used to improve the appearance of scars, including acne scars and surgical scars. By promoting collagen production and tissue remodeling, PRP can help soften the appearance of scars and improve skin texture.
  • Reduces inflammatory skin issues
    Skin conditions like acne, rosacea, and psoriasis may benefit from PRP’s anti-inflammatory effects. PRP also helps the skin tissue heal after damage from these conditions and prevents future breakouts and flare-ups.
  • Enhances hair quality and growth
    PRP is also used to promote hair growth and address issues like thinning hair and hair loss. The growth factors in PRP can stimulate hair follicles, improving their health and encouraging new hair growth. PRP is injected into the scalp or used in scalp microneedling in areas of hair loss or thinning.

What to Expect with PRP Treatment

The anti-aging benefits of PRP are hard to pass up. If you’re interested in trying it for yourself, it’s good to know about the two different types of PRP treatments:

  • PRP Facial Rejuvenation
    If you’ve heard of the “Vampire Facial,” you’ve heard of PRP Facial Rejuvenation or microneedling. With this procedure, we apply PRP topically to the skin after performing gentle microneedling.

Why use PRP with microneedling? Microneedling creates tiny controlled injuries in the skin, prompting the body’s natural healing response. Applying PRP after microneedling can enhance the healing process, stimulate collagen production, and improve skin texture, tone, and elasticity. And because the skin absorbs more nutrients after a microneedling session, you’ll make the most of your PRP.

  • PRP Injections
    In this approach, PRP is injected directly into specific areas of the face to target wrinkles, fine lines, and areas of volume loss. The growth factors in PRP stimulate the production of collagen and elastin in these areas, leading to smoother and more youthful-looking skin. PRP injections are commonly used to address areas like the under-eye region, nasolabial folds, and marionette lines.
