PRP Q & A
How does PRP work?
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) begins with a simple blood draw from your arm. Your blood specimen gets processed in a centrifuge, which is a specialized machine that rapidly spins your blood and forces platelets to separate.
These platelets have countless healing proteins, known as growth factors, attached to them. Growth factors are what jump into action to heal your skin and promote new tissue growth after an injury.
By gathering platelets, and thus growth factors, into a concentrated formulary, they can easily be injected into targeted areas with a needle or microneedling tool to stimulate cell turnover, skin tissue development, and even collagen production.
Since PRP simply harnesses the power of cells you already have in your body, you won’t have to worry about side effects or adverse reactions.
What can PRP treat?
PRP treatments from ReNew360 are entirely personalized to you and any areas or concerns you want to address. You can have a PRP service to:
- Smooth out lines and wrinkles
- Resolve issues with skin laxity
- Improve your skin’s overall tone and texture
- Minimize the appearance of scars, including acne scars
At ReNew360, you can get PRP to resolve these age-related imperfections on your face, neck, décolletage, or other problem areas.
When will I have results with PRP?
PRP requires little to no downtime. It’s common to experience some redness and inflammation from the injections, but you can go about your normal activities and even apply makeup after your session at ReNew360.
Over the following few weeks, as cells continue turning over and regenerating new tissues, you should notice an improvement in your skin’s health, tone, and texture. Results can occur in as little as three weeks, with ongoing improvements week after week.
Depending on your specific skin concerns, you could need up to three PRP sessions each spaced at least one month apart.
To continue helping your skin maintain its youthfulness, the team at ReNew360 often recommends annual PRP treatments.
