Our bodies are changing all the time, but they’re also constantly creating compounds that can be used to refresh and rejuvenate our appearance. If you’ve felt as though facial aging has changed your appearance, platelet-rich plasma (also known as PRP) can offer you a safe, natural, and highly effective solution.
All-Natural Facial Rejuvenation with Platelet-Rish Plasma
Plenty of patients come through our doors looking for an effective way to non-surgically turn back the clock and undo the early effects of facial aging. We offer plenty of surgical methods by which our patients can resolve the presence of lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin, but many of our patients are also looking for ways to make smaller adjustments while also avoiding any kind of significant downtime or recovery period. These patients are often great candidates for PRP injections, which utilize your body’s natural regenerative abilities to refresh and restore your appearance.
The SVIA network was built to offer you a new level of cosmetic care, combining some of the most accomplished and respected practices in the San Mateo and Los Gatos areas in a forward-thinking network of expert practitioners. When you’re ready to learn more about our services, or would like to know how PRP can help you restore your youthful glow, simply reach out and set up your consultation with a helpful member of our staff.
Ideal Candidates for PRP Injections
Our patients absolutely love the platelet-rich plasma treatment for its ability to address such a wide range of issues. Further, since the treatment uses compounds that were produced by your very own body, the treatment is completely safe and all-natural. No synthetic substances will be used, and your impressive results will be created by your body’s natural healing abilities. You’re likely a great candidate for PRP injections if you’re interested in addressing:
- Crow’s feet
- Hollows beneath the eyes
- Sunken cheeks
- Forehead lines
- Laugh lines
- Crinkled appearance
How Does the Treatment Work?
The platelet-rich plasma process is surprisingly simple, and does not take long to complete. Your blood will be drawn, before being loaded into a specialized centrifuge that works to separate the plasma from the rest of your blood. The platelet-rich plasma serum will then be carefully injected into the treatment area. Before your treatment, you and your practitioner will go over your injection pattern, so you’ll know exactly what to expect during the procedure itself. The PRP is injected using a very fine-gauge needle, and most of our patients find the process to be quite tolerable. We can also help to keep you even more comfortable with the use of a topical numbing cream if you so desire.
Enjoying Your Impressive Results
PRP injections can be combined with other treatments, as this compound has a tendency to improve the results of other skincare procedures that we offer at our San Mateo and Los Gatos MedSpa locations. After your treatment is complete, you’ll experience some tenderness and a slight amount of swelling at the injection site, but this resolves over the course of a day or two and typically doesn’t prevent our patients from quickly rejoining their active schedules.
