5 Little Known Facts About PRP

5 Little Known Facts About PRP

For all the weathering your skin endures over the years, it always regenerates from within. Your body naturally restores and replenishes your cells and tissues each day, albeit more and more slowly as you get older. So, wouldn’t it be great to speed that process up, and target your results to where you need regeneration the most?

With platelet-rich plasma (PRP) treatments, sometimes known as the vampire facial, you absolutely can! You can receive targeted PRP treatments at the state-of-the-art office of Apex Dermatology in Westlake Village, California.

How many ways could PRP benefit you as you seek to improve your skin and appearance? Here are just a few!

1. Minimal to no side effects

Most cosmetic skin care procedures result in at least some side effects, and, in the case of plastic surgery procedures, recovery time can become extensive. That’s not the case with PRP treatment.

This revolutionary approach to physical regeneration doesn’t come with any side effects beyond some slight swelling for an hour or so immediately after treatment, and a little bruising potentially around injection sites.

2. No chemicals or additives are needed

PRP treatment uses your own body’s natural resources to benefit your skin and rejuvenate your appearance. Your body constantly regenerates and rebuilds itself, creating new skin cells. PRP therapy accelerates and targets your natural regeneration capabilities, concentrating natural processes where they can have the results you want.

3. Tap into your healing capabilities

We use a sample of your own blood as the basis for your PRP therapy. While PRP treatment can certainly be paired with other procedures like microneedling or facials, you don’t need any additives to benefit from PRP treatment.

4. Long-lasting cosmetic results

PRP treatment can improve the tone and texture of your skin for as long as 18 months or more. If you want to remove sun damage and other blemishes from the surface of your skin, PRP can help with that, as well, encouraging the growth of fresh, clear, new skin.

5. Turn back the clock on your skin

Regenerative medicine lets you effectively turn back time when it comes to the appearance of your skin. From filling in old scars to tightening up wrinkling or saggy skin, PRP has a variety of anti-aging and restorative applications.
