There is one method that can get results naturally and uses your blood to do so.
With platelet-rich plasma (PRP) treatments, you will have a safe and effective method of quality skincare that helps to reveal the younger you. Dr. Jerry Davis and Kasey Murphy PA-C, at Boat Club Medical offers the latest PRP treatments to help you use your own body to find the best ways to help you find your younger self.
What is PRP Treatment?
Platelet-rich Plasma (PRP) treatment is a method of extracting plasma from the patient’s blood using a centrifuge, injecting it into the tissue in need of repair. The platelets in our blood are important for blood clotting and healing and help to stimulate tissue. The PRP treatment is used for many applications including recovery in injured tendons, ligaments and muscles. It uses your platelets to promote the healing process. The result is a very safe and natural method of delivering young and healthy skin.
How does it work?
Once your blood is run through the centrifuge and your plasma is separated from it, the plasma is injected back into the affected area of the body, allowing the platelets to stimulate healing and tissue growth. This helps with restoring the skin’s natural tightness and firmness and does so with no foreign agents introduced into the process, allowing the body to heal at its own pace. As a result, it can be used to treat wrinkles, restore fullness and texture, and even make scars less visible.
What should you expect when the treatment is done?
Expect the treated area to be sore with possible slight bruising for up to 2 days. You should avoid washing the injected area for that period. Over the counter pain relievers, such as acetaminophen can be used to alleviate any residual discomfort. You may resume using hair and skincare products after the two days as well. The process will continue for months promoting collagen which helps with improving smoothness and firmness.
