PRP For Aesthetics
|In the past, platelet-rich plasma therapy, which is also known as PRP, was used to treat chronic pain that resulted from conditions like osteoarthritis or tendon injuries. Today, PRP therapy is also used for aesthetic purposes. Researchers have found that it can have regenerative effects on the skin. It can also slow down some of the effects of aging.|
PRP is made using your own blood and then processing the blood to concentrate the platelets. Concentrated platelets in the form of PRP are then injected into the skin. PRP therapy can also help the body produce more stem cells, stimulate collagen production and improve the overall health and thickness of the skin.

How Do You Prepare For PRP Therapy?
There are a few things your doctor will recommend that you do in order to prepare for PRP therapy. Alcohol use and smoking can reduce the release of stem cells, so it is important to avoid using alcohol or smoking a few weeks prior to your treatment. Platelets cause an inflammatory reaction inside of the body. That is why taking anti-inflammatory drugs may interfere with the results of PRP therapy. Doctors typically advise that people avoid using anti-inflammatory drugs for one or two weeks before their treatment.
