Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) has been used in the medical field for wound healing, sports injuries, and bone healing. PRP is now used in the field of aesthetic medicine to restore and rejuvenate skin quality. Platelet Rich Plasma is produced by your own body, and involves drawing a small amount of blood and then placing it in a centrifuge that separates blood components. The plasma component contains a high level of platelets. Platelets function to help the body heal, and produce new cells. PRP can stimulate natural collagen growth, and is a regenerative anti-aging treatment that takes advantage of your body’s natural healing properties. The treatment can produce the following benefits:
You may wonder if a PRP facial is the right treatment for you. Understanding how platelets work to restore and regenerate can help you come to a decision. As processing your own blood concentrates the platelets in the blood product, when injected into your skin, certain proteins called “growth factors” are present in higher levels. These growth factors work to accelerate tissue repair. When in the concentration in PRP, the body’s healing and regenerative abilities are stimulated to perform at a higher level, producing fresher, more youthful-looking skin.
For a very natural approach to anti-aging technology, PRP treatments produce a natural glow and radiance so your skin appears fresh, smooth, and restored. The benefits are long-lasting, as the healing properties of the PRP continue to work for up to eighteen months in a typical case. For those who have had another facial treatment (such as laser resurfacing), adding a PRP treatment can speed healing and prolong results. Every client at Nassif Medspa can expect a customized treatment plan which may include PRP. As an advanced, natural, regenerative treatment that uses your own body’s natural healing properties, a PRP facial can produce dramatically improved skin quality and texture, keeping your face looking more youthful and warding off the effects of time.
Some clients prefer to take a more natural approach to anti-aging treatments, and as the PRP used is created directly from your own blood, there is no treatment more natural or safe. Take advantage of the natural healing properties of this important substance, and watch the changes in smoothness, glow, and improved texture increase as the weeks pass. Many clients at our Los Angeles area Medspa make a PRP facial part of their beauty regimen.
