Little to none
Aesthetic PRP injections can provide men and women with several important benefits, including:
- Improved skin elasticity
- Increased levels of collagen and hyaluronic acid
- Skin hydration
Enhance Your Appearance with a Natural Approach
When used for aesthetic or cosmetic purposes, PRP (platelet rich plasma) injections can help to revitalize your skin’s appearance for a fresher, more vibrant look. This non-surgical injectable treatment stimulates your body’s production of new collagen to achieve beautiful, natural-looking results with minimal recovery.
How PRP injections use your own blood to improve skin health
PRP injections work by extracting platelet rich plasma from your blood and injecting it into the dermal layer of your skin. The PRP’s cell-renewal properties then work to revive and build new collagen and other essential structures, helping to gradually restore a healthy and youthful appearance of the skin. Because this treatment uses your own blood, there is no risk of allergic reaction or other concerns that may be involved with other synthetic injectable or filler treatments.
We often recommend undergoing a series of three PRP treatments at one month intervals to achieve optimal benefits. Most patients will begin to notice improvements in their skin about three to four weeks after their initial treatment session. To maintain long-lasting results and a youthful appearance for years to come, PRP injections can be performed routinely every six months.
PRP with SkinPen™
At Skinetics, we often supplement our PRP treatments with microneedling for better absorption and optimal results. Before your PRP session, you will undergo a microneedling treatment with SkinPen. This will allow your skin to better absorb the PRP and will enhance your outcome. Click here to learn more about SkinPen and microneedling.
