PRP Skin Treatment
If you are not satisfied with the appearance of your skin because you feel that it makes you look older than you are, you may have given some thought to how you can have your younger look restored. After considering the options, many people gladly turn to platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy. As a therapy that can be used for many beneficial purposes, PRP for skin rejuvenation can greatly help you look refreshed and revitalized.
One of the major causes of an older appearance is the development of lines and wrinkles on the face. They usually appear around the eyes and mouth, as well as across the forehead. As you start to age, your skin will become loose, which will inevitably lead to wrinkles. It will also cause the skin to sag, further contributing to an aging look.
Since loose skin leads to signs of aging, the next question on your mind may be related to what causes the skin to loosen. The answer lies in a substance in lower layers of the skin called collagen. This is a protein that is naturally produced by the body and serves the purpose of helping the tissue stick together. It also provides fullness, which helps the skin appear tight. As you age, your body loses its ability to produce collagen in the same quantities it did when you were younger. The reduction in collagen also reduces the level of skin tightness.
PRP Treatment for Your Face
The facelift is one of the most well-known skin tightening procedures available today. This surgical procedure must be done in a hospital, after which a period of downtime for recovery is necessary. If you do not want or do not qualify for surgery, you may find PRP for skin rejuvenation to be just what you need. This non-invasive procedure carries none of the risks that can come with surgery.
PRP for skin rejuvenation starts by taking a sample of your own blood. It is then placed in a centrifuge machine and spun until the major components are separated. The platelets are then injected back into the body in the area where the treatment is needed. This will kick the body’s healing process into a faster motion. This is why this type of therapy is also often used for hair regrowth and pain relief. When it comes to PRP for skin rejuvenation, it will help with the production of collagen.
When collagen production is boosted as a result of the PRP therapy, it will return the skin to a level of tightness that it once had before the wrinkles and sagging skin had begun to develop. Collagen will start to grow right after the treatment is given, and its levels will gradually increase over the next few months until it peaks. At that point, the skin should look like it did years earlier.
PRP for skin rejuvenation is safe and effective. Since the therapy uses your own blood, you are not receiving anything that wasn’t in your body already.
