Natural Skin Rejuvenation with PRP
Many patients wish to rejuvenate their skin without invasive surgical procedures or artificial fillers. A PRP facial uses the platelets and growth factors in your blood to stimulate your body’s natural healing process. Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) can repair damaged skin and provide a healthier, more youthful appearance. At Skin Care at 5th Ave in Peachtree City, GA, we use this advanced skin rejuvenation technique to restore a natural glow to your skin. Dr. Joseph Galitzin and the team have extensive experience in non-surgical cosmetic solutions and can combine the technological advances of PRP and microneedling to brighten your skin and combat signs of aging.
What Is PRP?
Our blood is filled with platelets, which are tiny cells that are very important to healing. Using a centrifuge, we can isolate the platelets and growth factors within the blood. This concentrated blood is known as platelet-rich plasma, and it can be repurposed during treatment.
The Benefits of PRP Treatment
Facial rejuvenation with PRP offers a more natural way to achieve many of the benefits of procedures like facelifts and injectables. A PRP facial can improve the appearance of:
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Sagging skin
- Acne scars
- Dark circles under the eyes
- Stretch marks
- Dark spots
PRP treatment can also increase collagen production in your skin to combat volume loss. After a PRP facial, many patients notice their skin acquires a youthful, glowing appearance. In addition, this treatment involves little downtime. Some patients heal completely in as little as 24 hours, while others need two to four days.
How It Works
If you decide to undergo a PRP facial, we will first collect a small amount of blood. The experience is similar to having a blood test. Then, we will use a centrifuge to isolate the PRP. This process takes about 10 minutes.
You may continue to see improvements in your skin for months after treatment.
Once the PRP is isolated, we will apply a numbing solution to your face to ensure your comfort during treatment. Next, we will use the microneedling device to stimulate a localized healing response. Typically, patients feel a light scraping sensation during this portion of the procedure.
After microneedling, we will spread the remaining PRP over your skin to further activate stem cells in the skin and encourage the production of new, younger tissue. Usually, we let the substance soak into the skin for a short period of time before removing it. A typical procedure takes between 30 and 40 minutes.
Seeing Your Results
In many cases, patients notice an immediate change in the appearance of their skin. However, your final results will take several days or weeks to develop. You may continue to see improvements in your skin for months after treatment. To enhance your results, you can combine a PRP facial with one of our other skin treatments or injectable fillers.
For some patients, we recommend returning to the office for multiple sessions. Generally, one to three treatments is enough to achieve the desired effects. However, addressing more extensive signs of aging make take six to eight sessions.
