PRP, which stands for platelet-rich plasma, is one of the most revolutionary treatments in all cosmetics. It has the ability to completely rejuvenate one’s complexion, providing astonishing results and improving the body’s natural healing mechanisms. There are few treatments that hold their own to PRP injections, especially because PRP is harvested from the patient’s own blood supply, virtually eliminating the chance for any dangerous side effects like the treatment being rejected from the patient’s body.
When platelet-rich plasma is injected into the face, it immediately starts to work its magic. Upon injection, the PRP improves cell proliferation, which means that new, healthy cells can develop and replace the old, aged cells more effectively. This results in a younger-looking, more radiant complexion with fewer wrinkles, fine lines, and other skin imperfections.
PRP injections provide a long list of benefits for the face, including:
• Reduction in wrinkle formation
• Improvement in skin elasticity
• Increase in skin suppleness
• Reduction in skin abnormalities like sun damage and scars
• Increase in the skin’s natural collagen and elastin levels
While both PRP injections and fillers are administered via needles, there are many differences between the two. First and foremost, PRP injections are created from a sample of the patient’s own blood, making it a very safe treatment with very few possible risks. Fillers are created in a laboratory and require much research and development in order to find the perfect combination. This is very different from PRP injections, which rely on the body’s natural healing powers rather than on the properties discovered by science. Furthermore, PRP injections are more than just a cosmetic treatment, with dozens of potential applications extending beyond the realms of cosmetics. Dermal fillers, while versatile in their use, are only used aesthetically, and are therefore always considered an elective treatment. Finally, the length of time PRP injections last is different from how long dermal fillers will last. Considered a longer-lasting treatment, dermal fillers can last as long as two years, with many coming in around the 12 to 18-month mark. PRP injections, on the other hand, can provide results for several months, but some treatments can last much longer, including for several years. However, this all depends on the type of treatment and the number of injections received.
The number of PRP injections needed for the face is different in every situation and heavily relies upon a number of factors, such as:
• The type of conditions being treated
• The number of conditions being treated
• The severity of the conditions being treated
• The desired results of the patient
For minor concerns, such as a few wrinkles around the eyes, only a few PRP injections will be needed. For more major or pressing cosmetic concerns, such as widespread facial wrinkles or severe skin laxity, several PRP injections may be needed, which may need to be administered over the course of multiple treatment sessions. In fact, it is normal for multiple PRP injections to be administered over several treatments. This gives the first round of injections enough time to work before adding to the effects with additional injections.
