Research demonstrates that our own Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) has the power to heal and regenerate tissue in all areas of our body. PRP treatment uses your own platelets, rich in your own growth factors, to generate new collagen and blood supply. The treatment helps to repair and regenerate damaged skin and reverse the signs of aging.
How does PRP treatment rejuvenate skin?
Platelets are the cells in the blood that help tissue to heal and grow new cells. When Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is properly injected into specific areas of the skin, it promotes your own collagen growth, regenerates tissue, and naturally improves skin tone and texture. Studies document that PRP grows new collagen when injected into the skin, and new studies show that PRP can soften sun damage and other aging skin issues.
Is PRP safe for cosmetic use?
Yes, PRP has been safely and effectively used for cosmetic treatments. PRP has been used in orthopedic medicine, dentistry, and reconstructive surgery for over 30 years. Now PRP’s uses are expanding, for use in accelerating wound healing, as well as for cosmetic face and hand rejuvenation.
Can PRP injections be performed with other treatments and dermal fillers?
Yes, PRP can be combined with almost every treatment or procedure to enhance results. Most of Dr. Chernoff’s patients combine PRP injections with surgical procedures (facelifts), injectables, laser treatments, and facials. Some patients choose PRP as a stand-alone treatment to improve the overall quality, tightness, and texture of their skin.
How much improvement can I expect from PRP and how long will it last?
Since PRP comes from your own body the results vary for each person. Our patients have noticeable improvement in the tone, texture, and overall quality of their skin. They have been impressed with the results. Some of Dr. Chernoff’s patients have experienced improved volume in their hands and faces, as well as a shorter recovery from facial surgery procedures. Results begin to show 3-4 weeks after the treatment session and continue to improve with time. One to three treatment sessions are generally recommended, spaced 1-2 months apart, to achieve the best outcome.
What to expect during and after the PRP procedure?
A small amount of blood will be drawn from you and the PRP is prepared. The injections take a few moments, and are only mildly uncomfortable. The procedure is quick, relatively painless, and requires no post procedure care or time off from daily events. Mild swelling, redness, or bruising fades within 1-3 days.
