What is PRP?

Platelet-rich plasma, commonly called PRP, is a component in your blood that contains essential proteins and growth factors that support healing. When you sustain an injury, your body uses these substances to help repair the damage.

Concentrating PRP and injecting it back into your skin promotes healing and tissue regeneration to enhance its tone, texture, and elasticity. It may also help stimulate new hair growth if you suffer from hair loss or thinning hair.

Who should consider PRP facial treatments?

PRP therapy is a safe, minimally invasive way to improve the appearance of many skin concerns, such as:

  • Acne and acne scars
  • Stretch marks
  • Enlarged pores
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Redness
  • Brown spots
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Sun damage

If you’re looking for a minimally invasive skin rejuvenation treatment that doesn’t include chemicals or synthetic substances, PRP may be right for you.

How is PRP applied to the skin?

Betsy can inject PRP directly into your skin or scalp or combine your treatment with microneedling to improve your results. Microneedling is a minimally invasive procedure that involves creating micro-wounds in the skin with a handheld device. These tiny punctures trigger your body’s natural healing response, which sends new collagen to repair the damage.

Collagen is an essential protein for firmer, tighter, more youthful skin. Combining microneedling and PRP therapy can significantly enhance your results.

How long until I see results from PRP?

The results of PRP  may take several weeks to become visible, as the growth factors in the platelets take time to stimulate collagen production and tissue regeneration. It typically takes at least 2-3 treatments, spaced several weeks apart, to see noticeable improvements in your skin’s texture, tone, and elasticity.

The full benefits of PRP may continue to develop over several months as the new collagen and tissue continue to form.

How long do PRP results last?

While PRP results vary, most people can enjoy visible improvements for up to 18 months after their first treatment. You can return to Blush and Bloom MedSpa for maintenance treatments or to enhance your results with other cosmetic procedures, like dermal fillers or neuromodulators.
