A basic understanding of PRP treatment
Platelets are cells in the blood that aid in healing. PRP therapy has been used extensively in orthopedic medicine and dentistry. Today, patients enjoy skin rejuvenation benefits from minimally-invasive PRP treatment.
A small portion of blood is drawn, then spun in a centrifuge to separate vital components including platelet rich plasma. Calcium is added to PRP to spark the release of growth factors. Using a microneedling device, Dr. Smida re-introduces the formula into skin where it:
- Attracts stem cells
- Boosts the rate of cellular renewal
- Stimulates collagen production
- Triggers tissue remodeling and skin repair
Tapping into your personal fountain of youth
PRP treatment improves the condition of sun damaged and lax skin. It is appropriate for face, neck, scalp, décolletage, and hands. Because PRP treatment utilizes growth factors from your own body, there is no risk of allergic reaction. A session typically takes an hour or less, and two to three treatment are recommended for optimal results. The procedure is well tolerated. Some patients see immediate change, and improvement continues as PRP is absorbed into the body. Annual touch-up treatments keep skin youthful.
Platelet rich plasma returns skin to a younger state – firmer and smoother, with reduction in fine lines and wrinkles, and refined texture. To learn more about PRP treatment in Petaluma, call
