Platelet Rich Plasma for Skin Rejuvenation
Tampa Bay PRP Skin Rejuvenation Specialist, Johanna deVryer, M.D., utilizes PRP Therapy to alleviate a variety of skin imperfections such as acne, wrinkles, scarring, and dark under eye circles.
Because Platelet Rich Plasma provides rejuvenation of the cells, this groundbreaking anti-aging treatment can reverse years of skin damage in just one session.
Advances in aesthetic medicine are helping men and women in the Tampa, St. Petersburg and Clearwater, Florida areas to reduce the physical signs of aging in a safer and more successful way.
PRP therapy for skin involves taking a blood sample from the patient, separating the platelet rich plasma from the other components, and then injecting it into areas that the patient is looking to restore. A local anesthetic cream is used, making the procedure is quick and painless.
- Facial signs of aging that Platelet Rich Plasma can be used to treat include
- Loss of Facial Fullness
- Skin Texture
- Sun Damage
- Fine lines and Wrinkles
- Age Spots
- Acne Scarring
The Platelet Rich Plasma penetrates into the dermis, activating new collagen production by stimulating dormant collagen cells and fibroblasts. This process rejuvenates the appearance of skin, allowing for a thicker and stronger mesh. PRP Facial Injections can slow down or reverse the aging of the skin, particularly the skin under the eyes, around the mouth, and under the neck.
How is PRP different from other skin treatments?
When it comes to skin treatments, there are a ton of options out there. Unfortunately, they don’t all do what they claim. Also, some alternatives become very costly and require long recovery times. PRP is better than Botox or fillers such as Restylane, Juvederm, or Radiesse because it pauses and reverses the skin’s aging process instead of temporarily improving the appearance of some aspects of aging.
With both facial fillers and Platelet Rich Plasma, results are often temporary, however the full effect of PRP Therapy often does not show up until some weeks after the initial treatment. While facial fillers are often successful in adding volume, they tend to reduce over time, but Platelet Rich Plasma continues to plump skin and add fullness as time goes on. Many patients report seeing continued improvement for multiple years after initial PRP injections.
Benefits of Platelet Rich Plasma for Skin Rejuvenation
The Platelet Rich Plasma Facial rejuvenation procedure has many unique benefits, while providing patients with astounding and immediate results. Some of the benefits of this therapy include:
- No Downtime
The procedure is fast and is virtually painless. No anesthesia or pain medicine is required, and patients can return to their usual activities directly after the procedure.
- No Scarring, or Bruising
Some skin treatments leave behind visible scarring and bruising, which is essentially the opposite of the goal of improving your skin’s appearance. No observed scarring or bruising with Tamps Rejuvenation’s PRP treatments.
- Lasting Results
- After treating hundreds of patients, the experts at Tampa Rejuvenation are establishing trends of long-lasting results. During follow-up visits with our patients months and years down the road, the same glow they had when the procedure took place is observed.
- Increases Facial Fullness
- Like many facial fillers, Platelet Rich Plasma increases facial fullness to reduce a sagging, haggard like look that can occur with aging. The difference with PRP is that it uses the body’s endogenous cells to continually restore and rejuvenate facial volume.
- Reduces Wrinkles
PRP can both restore facial volume and diminish fine lines and wrinkles. Many patients have noticed an immediate reduction in the appearance of wrinkles after a treatment with Platelet Rich Plasma.
- Fewer Risks
With PRP there are fewer risks of allergic reactions and side effects because components of the body’s own blood are being used, and there are no foreign substances being injected.
Patients in the Tampa Bay and wider Hillsborough County area that are healthy, but are beginning to notice facial signs of aging, are ideal candidates for a PRP facial rejuvenation therapy. Men and women that want to restore their facial fullness, reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and look their very best can achieve their aesthetic goals through the use of PRP.
Tampa Bay PRP Skin Rejuvenation Specialist, Johanna deVryer, M.D., has helped hundreds of patients achieve their aesthetic goals using one or more aesthetic therapies, including Platelet Rich Plasma. Countless men and women in Tampa, Tampa Bay, and surrounding Hillsborough County Florida have been able to use this revolutionary treatment to increase their skin’s vibrancy and reduce the noticeable signs of facial aging.
