Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) has become a popular cosmetic treatment option in recent years, especially since celebrities began touting the effectiveness of the so-called vampire facial. In fact, there’s been so much hype about PRP and its use in aesthetic medicine you might be left wondering if that popularity is really deserved.
At South Lake Medical Spa, Nicole Casavant, PA-C, and our team routinely recommend PRP treatments for patients in Clermont, Florida, thanks to the treatment’s many benefits. PRP uses a patient’s blood to treat various cosmetic concerns, from wrinkles and sagging skin to hair loss. In this post, learn five reasons PRP is so popular for women and men in Florida and beyond.
It’s minimally invasive
PRP treatment begins with a blood sample we draw and process in our office. We administer the resulting PRP via injections, so there are no incisions, anesthesia, or related complications.
Since we derive PRP from your own blood, you also don’t need to worry about allergic reactions. While you might have a little redness or minor bruising right after an injection, PRP treatments leave no lingering scars.
Treatment is quick — and there’s no downtime
Most of us lead busy lives, making fitting some procedures into our schedules challenging. With PRP, treatment is quick, typically taking less than an hour — sometimes less than 20 minutes. Afterward, there’s no downtime, making it much easier to fit treatment into your regular routine.
PRP can be used for lots of issues, including:
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Sagging skin
- Rough or uneven skin texture
- Hair loss
PRP is so versatile because it works in multiple ways to reduce inflammation, promote natural healing, and encourage the development of new, healthy cells.
It works with your body
PRP contains blood components called platelets that play a critical role in healing. Platelets contain proteins called growth factors, and it’s these components that promote new cell development.
Once injected, PRP triggers a cascade of natural events to heal areas of damaged tissue on your face or scalp. Over time, that healing cascade promotes collagen development and restores damaged tissue to rejuvenate aging skin or stimulate healthy hair growth — no drugs needed.
It offers long-lasting, natural results
Because it triggers your body’s healing responses, you’ll see natural-looking results that develop over time. Plus, you can repeat PRP treatments as needed to maintain your results naturally, without surgery, incisions, anesthesia, or drugs.
