Along with its many applications in the medical field, platelet-rich plasma (PRP) has been popularized as an effective cosmetic injectable treatment. At Forever 30, we offer platelet-rich plasma in Prosper to address signs of facial aging, treat hair loss, and more.
What Is a Platelet-Rich Plasma?
Platelet-rich plasma is a state-of-the-art treatment created using a small amount of a patient’s own blood. PRP treatments are performed by injecting platelet-rich plasma into a particular area of the body.
This minimally invasive treatment is commonly used to improve facial volume, texture, and tone. It reduces facial wrinkles and age lines for a rejuvenated and youthful appearance. PRP injections are also used to treat hair loss, promoting hair growth. They can even be combined with skin treatments like microneedling to enhance these treatments’ results.
How Does Platelet-Rich Plasma Treatment Work?
The blood contains several components. Plasma is the liquid portion of blood, and platelets are known for their clotting and healing abilities. Platelets are rich in growth factors. These growth factors can stimulate cell reproduction, tissue regeneration, and the healing process.
Platelet-rich plasma is a concentrated solution made up of a patient’s plasma and platelets. It is prepared by placing a small sample of the patient’s blood into a centrifuge. This process separates the platelets and plasma from other components of the blood. Once the PRP is injected into the targeted site, it improves the health of the area to create impressive cosmetic results.
Am I a Good Candidate for PRP Treatment?
Healthy patients with no blood-related conditions are the best candidates for a PRP treatment. Candidates include patients with hair loss symptoms and facial skin aging issues like volume loss.
Patients are not considered to be ideal candidates for PRP if they have the following conditions:
- A blood disease or bleeding disorder
- An active skin infection in the treatment area (or other health issues that can be spread through injections)
Additionally, patients who are pregnant or taking anti-coagulants may not be suitable candidates for platelet-rich plasma treatment.
During your platelet-rich plasma consultation, we will listen to your concerns and goals. We will then examine your physical condition and evaluate your medical records.
Next, we will personalize a PRP treatment plan to achieve your goals. The plan will be explained to you, including preparation, the PRP treatment process, aftercare, and cost. We encourage you to raise concerns and ask questions anytime.
Your PRP Treatment Session
The details of the platelet-rich plasma treatment session will depend on the patient’s treatment areas and goals. Generally, the first step will be drawing blood from the patient. The blood will be processed in a centrifuge to obtain the platelet-rich plasma. Finally, controlled amounts of PRP will be precisely injected into the treatment areas.
Platelet-Rich Plasma Treatment Aftercare
The patient can go home immediately after their PRP treatment. There is no recovery period needed after these simple injections, and there is no downtime.
The patient may experience minor post-treatment symptoms like pain, swelling, bruising, or discomfort. We will provide aftercare instructions to address these issues. A cold compress can help to bring down swelling, and avoiding sun exposure for a time is recommended.
How Much Does a Platelet-Rich Plasma Treatment Cost?
The price of a platelet-rich plasma treatment will depend on the exact issues being addressed. Combining PRP with another treatment can affect the overall treatment cost.
