PRP Q & A
What is PRP?
PRP is a blood product rich in growth factors and platelets that stimulates and accelerates your body’s natural healing power. It was initially used as a treatment to help athletes heal from their injuries, and now it’s used for a number of medical issues, including arthritis and healing after surgery, as well as cosmetic treatments.
What is PRP used for?
Dr. Lara and her team use PRP as part of the health and wellness treatments at Celebrating Women Center to rejuvenate your skin and authentically enhance your natural beauty without surgery or invasive treatments.
She may suggest PRP treatment to:
- Treat dull, discolored skin
- Lift sagging skin
- Reduce appearance of lines and wrinkles
- Lessen scar tissue
When it comes to youth and beauty, prevention goes a long way, and Dr. Lara may suggest regular PRP treatment to help maintain your youthful appearance and stimulate your skin’s natural regeneration.
PRP is especially effective at improving the look and health of your skin when combined with other regenerative treatments such as microneedling.
How does PRP work?
When applied to your skin, PRP stimulates the production of collagen and other proteins to help increase regeneration. Collagen is the protein in your skin that provides, strength, support, and elasticity.
As you get older, collagen production slows down, leading to the sagging of your skin and the formation of wrinkles. Keeping collagen production up may help prevent or reduce this part of your aging process.
Is PRP safe?
PRP is autologous, which means Dr. Lara uses your own blood for treatment, so there’s very little risk and treatment is well tolerated.
To create your PRP for treatment, Dr. Lara takes a small sample of your blood and spins it in a special centrifuge to separate the liquid portion of your blood from the solid, platelet-rich portion. The platelet-rich blood product is then used for treatment.
Dr. Lara takes her job as your doctor very seriously and collaborates with you to develop the best treatment plan to help you meet your aesthetic goals. Her authenticity and integrity about you and your health will surely bring you joy.
