Does PRP Lift Skin?

By | Platelet Rich Plasma, PRP Skin Care

Platelet rich plasma is becoming a powerful tool in both the medical and cosmetic spheres. At PRP In Seattle, we focus primarily on cosmetic uses of platelet rich plasma such as in hair restoration and skin rejuvenation. A common question for people wanting to use PRP to improve their skin and for anti-aging purposes sometimes ask, “Does PRP lift skin?”

The best answer to this question is that it depends on the state of your skin. For patients with more advanced signs of aging that may benefit more from surgical correction, PRP is unlikely to provide the results they want. However, for patients just beginning to experience wrinkle formation and loss of skin elasticity, platelet rich plasma skincare may provide improvement and a slight lifting and plumping effect.

It should be noted that platelet rich plasma is not a permanent solution to lift the skin, but it does increase and induce collagen production. This collagen production can reduce the look of wrinkles, repair damaged skin, and prevent aging. Microneedling with PRP is the most effective procedure in this regard. When combining platelet rich plasma and microneedling, this is one of the best all around procedures for improving the look and quality of your skin. This can include addressing the early signs of aging.

3 Things You Probably Didn’t Know About Platelet Rich Plasma

By | Platelet Rich Plasma

Platelet rich plasma is one of the most promising advancements in medicine today. It has been used in surgery for decades and now has many uses across the medical and cosmetic fields. Before undergoing treatment with PRP, patients often are not familiar with it. Here are 3 things you probably didn’t know about platelet rich plasma. 

#1: Platelet Rich Plasma Has 5 Times The Amount Of Platelets As Blood

On average, once spun in a centrifuge, PRP has roughly five times the amount of platelets as blood as a whole. Platelets contain important growth factors and also create a signal that tells your body to heal. This is why PRP therapy is often effective at promoting healing, collagen production, and hair growth

#2: It May Reduce Scarring

The use of PRP during surgery may reduce post-surgical scarring. While studies are still ongoing, early research shows that patients often see less scarring following a surgical procedure using platelet rich plasma.

#3: PRP Is Exceptionally Safe

Since PRP comes from a patient’s own blood and body, the risk of rejection or allergic reaction is minute, if not, impossible. This makes PRP safer than some of the most common cosmetic injections.
