PRP For Aesthetics


Eclipse PRPIn 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.

Is It Right For Me?
There are several things a physician – like Dr. Senger – will have to take into consideration before deciding whether PRP is right for a particular patient. Keep in mind that because this procedure is minimally-invasive, most people will be considered a good candidate for it. However, this treatment may not be right for people who are receiving chemotherapy or have an infection. PRP therapy may also not be right for people who drink alcohol heavily.
People who want to get PRP therapy should have realistic expectations. This procedure can give a person younger and healthier looking skin, but it does have its limitations.

How Long Do The Results Of PRP Therapy Last?
PRP therapy is a relatively new procedure. However, the results of this procedure can potentially last from nine to 24 months. Keep in mind that maintenance treatments are required for PRP therapy just like all other cosmetic treatments. Dr. Senger can help determine the right treatment schedule for you depending on your needs and the results you’re expecting.

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.
