PRP Injections Use your Blood to Help your Skin

by Aymee Wilson, Owner & Founder, Wilson Aesthetics

PRP/PRF, or “Liquid Gold” as we like to call it, is the perfect solution to stimulate cell growth within the body.

The patient’s blood is drawn, processed and then used for treatment. The amazing benefits of PRP and PRF can be used to stimulate hair growth, diminish the appearance of scarring, encourage the body’s production of collagen and much more.

Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) injections as a stand-alone treatment for the face stimulates new collagen, enhancing microcirculation and regrowth of new healthy skin. The highest quality PRP is harvested from your own blood, providing a naturally occurring injectable for cellular support.

The concentrated platelets and included growth factors can be used for facial rejuvenation, hair restoration, or combined with dermal fillers for structural support.

A PRP facial uses the technique of microneedling to deliver platelet rich plasma to the deeper layers of your skin. Microneedling improves the appearance of skin on its own. When PRP is applied together with microneedling, the results are stunning — your skin will look smoother, your complexion will improve, signs of aging will diminish, acne scars will fade, fine lines will soften and your face will glow with a youthful radiance.

Prior to your treatment, your provider will thoroughly cleanse your skin and apply a topical numbing cream to the treatment area to provide comfort during the treatment. Following the treatment, minor side effects can be expected. At times swelling and bruising may be present.

The nature of this cosmetic procedure may require a patient to return for numerous visits to achieve the desired results or to determine whether PRP may not be completely effective at treating the particular condition. The average patient needs about three to four treatment sessions separated by four to six weeks, and the final result won’t be readily visible for four to nine months.
