In just a few short years platelet rich plasma (PRP) therapy, has become a top anti-aging strategy for the skin. PRP regenerates the skin cells, and this makes it ideal for those looking to tighten the skin, and reverse the effects of age. Despite the benefits, people considering the procedure still ask the question – Are PRP treatments safe.
PRP is ideal for facial rejuvenation, because it stimulates collagen and this leads to tighter skin, which in turn reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It also has a positive effect on scars.
Treatment involves the use of a patient’s own blood platelets for skin rejuvenation. The growth factors that are present in the platelets trigger the skin’s natural repair process, resulting in fresher, firmer skin.
Although it is often used for facial rejuvenation, it can also be used to improve the tone and texture of the skin on other parts of the body. Most clients see some results within 3 weeks of treatment, but as collagen remodels, more improvements will be noticeable in the following months.
Are PRP treatments safe?
PRP is considered a safe skin rejuvenation treatment. The technique requires the extraction of a small vial of blood from patients. The blood is then purified and the platelet rich plasma separated. A fine needle is then use to inject the mixture into the area targeted for rejuvenation.
PRP is considered very safe since it uses your own blood, and the chance of your body rejecting its own serum is very unlikely. However, doctors advisewomen who are pregnant or breastfeeding should not undergo PRP therapy.
