In the world of avid social media use and increased visibility, it is important to look your best. Revitalizing your facial appearance is a step in the right direction if you want to achieve a brighter and more approachable aesthetic. Those with severe skin laxity or hair loss may need surgery to reach their goals. However, patients who have just begun to notice signs of aging may qualify for minimally invasive alternatives.
One of the most successful cosmetic treatments available uses platelet-rich plasma (PRP) to replenish compromised tissues naturally. PRP restoration is often the perfect solution for patients who are interested in non-surgical rejuvenation. This regenerative treatment can produce noticeable, effective, and long-lasting results in both male and female patients who want to address facial aging or hair loss.
Am I a Candidate for PRP Restoration?
You may consider PRP restoration if you can relate to any of the following concerns:
– Facial volume loss
– Mild-to-moderate wrinkles and creases
– Poor skin tone or texture
– Loss of skin elasticity
– Acne scarring
– Male or female hair loss
The PRP Restoration Procedure
Like a routine blood panel test performed at a lab, a small amount of blood is drawn using a standard hypodermic needle. It is then processed through a centrifuge, which separates the PRP from any impurities and solids. During a hair restoration treatment, the plasma is injected into the scalp to trigger hair growth from within the targeted follicles. For a facial rejuvenation procedure, PRP can be introduced into problem areas of the face through tiny punctures created with a microneedling device.
How Does PRP Restoration Work?
PRP stimulates the body’s regenerative responses in aging or damaged tissues, resulting in:
– Volume restoration
– Increased collagen production
– The development of healthy cells
– Rapid healing
What to Expect After PRP Restoration
Because PRP restoration does not involve creating incisions in the skin or the use of general anesthesia, there is no need for an extensive recovery. Most activities can be resumed right after a PRP appointment. However, patients are advised to avoid wearing makeup or spending time in direct sunlight until the treated areas have healed completely. Any post-treatment discomfort can be alleviated with over-the-counter medication.
After PRP facial rejuvenation, patients will notice softer and smoother skin in approximately three weeks. Those who opt for hair restoration should experience new hair growth and an improvement in hair thickness in four to six weeks. Results from either PRP restoration procedure continue to improve over time and can be maintained with regularly scheduled sessions as needed.
