PRP Facial Rejuvenation
Plasma Rich Protein is a procedure indicated for the treatment of fine lines, thinning skin, large pores, and changes commonly seen in sun-damaged and aging skin.
PRP is platelet-enriched blood plasma that is collected by a simple blood draw from your arm. The vial of blood is placed in a centrifuge, which spins and separates the PRP from the red blood cells. The PRP is pulled into a syringe and is either injected or applied topically after a resurfacing procedure. PRP contains numerous proteins that stimulate the healing of soft tissue. These growth factors increase the production of collagen and hyaluronic acid. This restores volume and enhances areas naturally by using the body’s healing process. Improvement in skin volume, texture, and tone can be visible within three weeks. Areas of treatment include cheeks, nasolabial folds, marionette lines, crow’s feet, and forehead. Results can last two years or longer. There is little chance for an allergic reaction since the product comes from your body. Possible side effects include bruising, redness, and swelling at the injection site. The needle used is very fine, and no topical anesthetic is needed. People who have one or more of the following may not be candidates for the PRP procedure: platelet disorders, abnormal clotting factors, chronic liver disease, infection, or those who are on an anti-coagulation therapy (warfarin, dabigatran, heparin). As with any medical procedure at Lumina, PRP is performed by nationally certified healthcare providers, who are licensed to practice medicine in the state of Vermont. All providers have had specialized training in performing this procedure.
