What are the Benefits of PRP Therapy?
PRP therapy is a wonderful way to bring back your youthful glow — without the use of chemicals or invasive plastic surgery. This popular treatment at Altogether You Med Spa boosts collagen production, which is a key factor in maintaining a healthy and firm complexion. Dr. Ortiz can address a wide range of concerns with platelet-rich plasma, including wrinkles and fine lines, sun damage, age spots, rough skin texture, and acne scarring. It can also help with sagging skin and volume loss. Best of all, results only continue to improve over time as collagen production increases!
What Is Our Platelet-Rich Plasma Technique?
After you are seated comfortably in one of our private spa treatment rooms, a small amount of blood will be taken from your arm and placed in a centrifuge machine so the plasma and platelets can be separated out. We will load your rich plasma into a sterile syringe along with a nutritional serum, and the mixture will be injected into the target areas of your face and body. Plasma from PRP therapy promotes the production of elastin and collagen naturally to reveal tighter and younger-looking skin. Speak with Dr. José A. Ortiz, N.M.D. about any skin conditions, blood disorders, or anemia to determine whether it is safe for you to undergo PRP therapy.
PRP Therapy FAQ
How much does PRP therapy cost?
Treatment costs for PRP therapy will depend on where you are getting it and if it's combined with another cosmetic treatment. Your technician will come up with an estimated cost in your initial consult and then review the specials we are offering on PRP treatments as well as payment options.
How long do results from PRP therapy last?
Visible results from PRP therapy may last for as long as two months. The results will vary in every patient and depends on the area being treated. One of the benefits of PRP therapy is that it does not require surgery or a long recovery period, plus it is more affordable.
What are the risks and complications of PRP therapy?
The side effects from PRP therapy by itself are extremely minor and include temporary bruising and swelling. When you get PRP therapy with microneedling, possible risks may include infection, mild scarring, pigment changes, and delayed healing. This is why you should have cosmetic treatments done by an experienced technician who has studied the process.
Will PRP help replenish volume?
A treatment of PRP therapy does not add volume in areas like your lips and cheeks. Although PRP treatments offer stunning results since it rejuvenates the appearance of the skin and stimulates the production of collagen and elastin, it does not increase volume. If you want to contour certain areas of your face, you may be a better candidate for dermal fillers.
Is PRP therapy painful?
Injections of PRP serum feel like a wrinkle filler or relaxer injection but with the additional step of extracting the plasma. Typically, most patients will feel a mild pinch or pressure at the time of injection. If you are concerned about feeling pain, ask if you can receive numbing cream.
