Can platelet-rich plasma for facial rejuvenation make you look younger? In Scottsdale, Arizona, Beverly Hills Rejuvenation Center is a leader in cutting-edge cosmetic platelet-rich plasma (PRP) facial rejuvenation. PRP therapy uses your blood as a natural fountain of youth to erase fine lines and wrinkles, heal scars, and tighten and tone your skin so that you can look as young as you truly feel.
What is Cosmetic PRP?
Your blood is made up of blood cells called platelets with granules containing clotting and growth factors released during healing. Over 70 growth factors and bio-active proteins in your blood accelerate a healing cascade that facilitates new collagen production and tissue regeneration to repair injured and damaged cells.
When PRP is reintroduced into your skin by injection or micro-needling, it initiates a localized stem cell response that recruits collagen-producing cells called fibroblasts. The fibroblasts replace tissue that was damaged or lost through the aging process with healthy skin that’s refreshed and rejuvenated.
How Can PRP Injections Help Your Skin?
By targeting your skin at the cellular level, PRP injections improve your skin's appearance by smoothing out wrinkles, fine lines, and scars, and by softening your skin's tone and texture.
Depending on the condition of your skin, the effects of cosmetic PRP can last 12 months to two years. If you are looking for an immediate effect, cosmetic PRP can be combined with hyaluronic acid fillers for fast and effective volume correction. Fillers help to build new collagen and can be used to accelerate and sustain the benefits of cosmetic PRP.
PRP injections are suitable for common age-related cosmetic complaints experienced by both men and women, such as:
- Crow's feet and dark under eye circles
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Lip, frown lines, and laugh lines
- Deep depressions around the nose and mouth
- Volume loss in the cheeks
- Dull, lackluster skin
- Sagging skin
- Drooping jawline
- Mild collagen loss
- Acne scarring
PRP injections for facial rejuvenation is completed as a cosmetic outpatient procedure. We collect a sample of your blood, which is processed in a centrifuge to separate and concentrate the platelets from the rest of your blood. After numbing the treatment area, PRP is injected or reapplied to the skin using a micro-needling device.
PRP facial rejuvenation is a simple, safe, non-surgical procedure with minimal downtime and very few side effects. You may experience mild swelling or bruising that may last a few days. Because the PRP is extracted from your blood, there is no risk of disease transmission or allergic or immune reaction.
