Platelet Rich Plasma
Many patients today prefer a less invasive means to look younger and feel better. Today, we can offer a revolutionary new anti-wrinkle treatment and another tool to help reduce pain in your joints using your own blood. The treatment is called Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy. You may have heard it commonly referred to as “Blood Therapy”, which sometimes entails the combination of dermal fillers with PRP.
PRP involves the use of blood plasma, enriched through a special process to increase the concentration of platelets. These platelets contain bioactive proteins and growth factors that serve to accelerate tissue repair and regeneration, and activate stem cells. This non-surgical, age-defying wrinkle treatment injects PRP, derived from your own blood, to stimulate collagen production and cell migration, resulting in fresh, healthy, younger looking skin.
PRP Therapy since it received FDA clearance, and the many patients who have chosen PRP Therapy are still enjoying their amazing, natural results months later. The best way to find out if this treatment is right for you is to speak to us in person. Please call (714) 885-8980 today to schedule your free consultation at our Huntington Beach office.
What PRP really is
Yes, it really does use a small amount of your own blood to prepare a platelet rich fibrin injectable gel. PRP Therapy involves a three step process that’s quick and easy. The whole treatment can take as little as 30 minutes depending upon the area you want to have treated. The injections do not add volume but rather stimulate your own collagen production and cell migration to reduce pain in joints, eliminate lines, folds and wrinkles. The improvement is subtle and natural. Results can last up to two years.
