Platelet-rich plasma therapy (PRP), or platelet-rich plasma filler (PRF), refers to cosmetic treatments initially designed to accelerate your body’s natural healing process.
PRP is widely used in a number of medical fields. It works wonders for hair restoration and cosmetic procedures. PRP therapy is even used with some surgeries to assist in the healing process.
PRP refers to platelet-rich plasma, so it contains more platelets than what’s normally in your blood. The platelet-rich plasma is obtained through a unique process (centrifugation) that concentrates the growth factors until they’re around five to 10 times richer than normal.
Microneedling with PRP is a cosmetic treatment that stimulates collagen production by rolling fine needles over the skin and applying platelets, one of the components of blood.
The addition of PRP from the blood may make microneedling more effective. The liquid in the blood is plasma, while platelets are solid.
Your blood is mainly made up of a liquid called plasma, and it’s also comprised of small solid molecules: platelets and red and white blood cells. The platelets help with blood clotting and have numerous growth factors that are particularly beneficial for healing injuries and boosting cell restoration.
To address aesthetic or cosmetic concerns and to assist with anti-aging, PRP can fill in areas of lost facial volume. PRP also promotes cell regeneration and the production of elastin and collagen for longer-term and more youthful-looking results.
When your specialist carefully injects the PRP into specific areas, such as the lines or circles under the eyes, or a loss of volume around the jaw area, the PRP can plump, smooth, and restore volume using your own natural growth factors and platelets.
Your Je Lu Ja MedSpa and Weight loss center provider draws your blood and separates the platelets. The platelets are concentrated in a centrifuge device, and your specialist carefully merges the concentrated platelets with the remaining blood before injecting the solution into the target area. During one convenient in-office session, your provider can administer multiple injections.
Unlike many skin restoration and anti-aging treatments, PRP doesn’t involve surgery or medications that can sometimes come with unwanted risks and side effects.
It’s a quick and convenient in-office lunchtime procedure without any downtime. Since PRP is a more natural treatment that involves simply using your own blood taken right then and there, your body won’t reject it, making it both successful and safe.
If you prefer a more natural approach and are unsure about certain man-made substances or surgical procedures, why not try the innovative PRP? Call the office or request an appointment online today.
