When it comes to skin rejuvenation, nothing is better than correcting visible signs of aging and dull skin tone using your body’s own natural resources. At Advanced Wellness Institute, we offer platelet-rich plasma (PRP) facials to help treat aging and damaged skin from the inside out.
Located in Columbus, North Carolina, Advanced Wellness Institute is led by Dr. Lonnie Lassiter. Contact us today to schedule a consultation and find out how skin rejuvenation and PRP go hand-in-hand to improve the look and feel of your skin.
What is PRP?
PRP has been utilized in multiple fields of medicine for several years and has the ability to aid in healing and regenerating new, healthy tissues. When used in conjunction with skin rejuvenation treatments in aesthetic medicine, PRP can:
- Help the skin generate fresh, new cells to gradually resurface treated areas
- Aid in the production of collagen to strengthen and restructure the skin
- Improved blood circulation underneath the skin, restoring a youthful glow
PRP is created in a multi-step process that is comfortable and minimally invasive for the patient:
- A small sample of blood is taken from the patient
- The blood is spun in a sterile centrifuge process, separating it into its separate components.
- The plasma, the liquid portion of the blood, is enriched with more platelets than normal, which contain several growth factors that can aid in producing new skin and tissues.
How is PRP Used?
When spread topically after a Rejuvapen micro-needling treatment, PRP is absorbed into the skin, where it begins to work from the inside out. While micro-needling is effective as a standalone treatment for gently improving the look and feel of the skin, results are often maximized when PRP is used in conjunction, and the natural healing properties of PRP can help many patients achieve their aesthetic goals faster.
Are PRP Facials Safe?
As PRP is comprised of your body’s natural resources, it is easily recognized and accepted into treated areas with little risk or side effects. Patients who have contraindicating medical conditions such as certain blood disorders may require further evaluation before treatment with a PRP facial is approved. When performed by a licensed medical professional, PRP facials are a safe, natural treatment that creates long-lasting results
How Long Will My PRP Facial Last?
The full effects of a PRP facial may not be visible for several months, as the process of generating new cells and tissues is gradual, but the results are subtle and with regular treatment and a good skincare regimen can effectively manage visible signs of aging. During your consultation at Advanced Wellness Institute, we will customize a treatment plan for you to maintain your softer, smoother skin.
