What is PRP Therapy?
Platelet-rich plasma, or PRP, therapy uses the platelets in your own blood to enhance the results of your cosmetic treatments. Many factors affect the appearance of your skin, and platelets are proven to trigger collagen production and promote new skin cell development. This combination of benefits results in skin that is tighter and smoother.
Benefits of PRP Therapy
PRP therapy is a safe and effective way to look younger. The procedure:
- Uses your own platelets
- Requires no downtime, incisions or lengthy recovery
- Provides gradual improvements
What Can I Expect from PRP Therapy?
Treatment with platelet rich plasma begins by collecting a small amount of your blood. The blood is processed in a device that separates the plasma from the other components. The platelets are drawn into a needle for injection or applied topically during treatment.
How Does PRP Therapy Differ From Other Types of Skin Treatments?
While other products can stimulate collagen production, PRP therapy also provides the benefit of enhancing tissue development.
Recovery from PRP Therapy
PRP therapy does not require any specific recovery. If you have the treatment performed in conjunction with another procedure, you may have some downtime that is associated with the other procedure, and not necessarily due to the use of PRP therapy. The platelets begin to work immediately, but you may not see results for three to four weeks. Dr. Taghizadeh may recommend multiple treatments for best results.
What Will PRP Therapy Do for My Skin?
When PRP therapy is integrated into your aesthetic treatments, you will see:
- A reduction in fine lines and wrinkles, including crow’s feet
- Improved skin texture and volume
- Decreased loss of collagen and facial contours
- Improved management of rosacea, acne and other skin conditions
- Reduction in dark circles under the eyes
Will Everyone Benefit from PRP Therapy?
Because your own blood is used for PRP therapy, it is considered very safe. Depending on your cosmetic goals, Dr. Taghizadeh may recommend an alternative treatment at our medical spa should he determine that PRP therapy will not provide the optimum results.
How Much Does PRP Therapy Cost in Phoenix?
PRP therapy is considered elective by your medical insurance so you will be responsible for the cost. After your consultation with Dr. Taghizadeh, we will explain the total cost of treatment.
