PRP Q & A

What is PRP?

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a naturally occurring substance in your blood that contains special growth factors that stimulate cell regeneration.

When used in aesthetic treatments, PRP can rejuvenate the health of your skin from the inside out by promoting the growth of new, healthy collagen. Collagen is the substance that keeps your skin soft, firm, and younger-looking.

What can I expect during PRP treatments?

To access the PRP from your blood, your Skin Glow Medical provider must first draw a sample of your blood. They prepare the sample in a centrifuge, a device that quickly spins the liquid and separates the plasma from the rest of the blood materials.

Following the preparation of your blood, the resulting high concentration of platelet-rich plasma is what the team uses in your therapy. Your Skin Glow Medical provider injects the PRP into specific areas of your face to boost collagen production.

How long does it take to see the results of PRP therapy?

Because it takes time for your body to produce new, healthy collagen, you can expect to see a noticeable difference in your skin’s health within four weeks of treatment. 

As new collagen continues to grow, your skin feels tighter and firmer. Over time, wrinkles and lines become less noticeable and your skin tone becomes more even and vibrant.

Since the PRP used in therapy comes from your own blood, you don’t have to worry about rejection or other health complications after your treatment.

Are the results of PRP long-lasting?

Injections of PRP address the root cause of wrinkles and lost facial volume. By stimulating new collagen production, the effects of PRP therapy are long-lasting and look natural.

While your initial treatment can give you months or years of satisfactory results, your body continues to lose collagen as you age. 

To help maintain your results, the Skin Glow Medical staff can create a long-term treatment plan for maintenance injections with PRP to keep you young-looking and your skin healthy.
