PRP, or platelet-rich plasma, can help rejuvenate and revitalize your skin using your body’s own natural resources. At Laser Health Works, we utilize the benefits of PRP to help improve the look and feel of skin from the inside out using your own growth factors for safe and natural rejuvenation.
Located in Barrie and Midland in Ontario, Laser Health Works is led by Dr. Barb Loiskandl, Dr. Rainer Loiskandl, and Dr. Darlene Newnham. Contact us today to schedule a consultation and find out how PRP can improve aging and damaged skin with a simple, non-surgical process.
What is PRP?
PRP is used in several areas of medicine for its healing properties and ability to help regenerate new tissues. When used in conjunction with aesthetic treatments, platelet-rich plasma can help make subtle improvements to the skin at a cellular level below the surface more effectively than many other skin rejuvenation treatments.
PRP is created through a multi-step step process:
- A small sample of the patient’s blood is taken
- The blood is spun through a sterile centrifuge, separating the blood into its individual components
- During this process, the liquid portion of the blood, or plasma, is infused with more platelets than normal. While typically responsible for clotting the blood, platelets also contain several beneficial growth factors.
- When introduced to the skin either topically or through injection, the platelet-rich plasma is absorbed below the surface, where it can aid in the production of new skin cells and tissues. It can also help improve circulation underneath the skin to help restore the skin’s youthful glow.
What Does PRP Treat?
This skin rejuvenation alternative can help improve visible signs of aging, improve skin luster and help correct uneven skin texture and tone over time. The results with PRP and hair restoration require three treatments to the scalp one month apart. PRP can be used as a standalone procedure and also used in conjunction with some other aesthetic treatments, which can be discussed during your consultation.
Is PRP Safe?
As PRP is comprised of your own natural resources, it is easily accepted and processed by the body. It is gaining popularity not only as an aesthetic treatment but also as a solution to help promote healing and tissue growth in several fields of medicine. This treatment is low-risk, and many patients see visible results in a matter of a few weeks as PRP works below the skin.
Depending on your aesthetic goals, multiple treatment sessions may be necessary, and results may vary. During your consultation, our medical team will evaluate several factors such as your health, medical history, and skin condition in order to help determine if this is the best course of treatment for you.
