The Best PRP Facial in Atlanta, GA!

Recent studies suggest that PRP therapy may be one of the most promising anti-aging methods out there. Referred to as platelet-rich plasma, this therapy involves extracting blood from a person and then incubating it with growth factors and other cells that promote healing.

PRP has already been used to treat a number of injuries and conditions, such as joint pain, chronic inflammation, and even stroke. It is beginning to be used more by orthopedic surgeons. And while the exact mechanism by which PRP works is still unknown, many believe that it helps to improve the regeneration process. 

PRP not only is helpful for medical conditions but it can also be used for cosmetic reasons. For instance, PRP has been used to treat acne scars, surgical scars, and stretch marks. It has been shown to help improve skin quality and reduce the appearance of wrinkles, age spots, and other skin issues. PRP therapy is also said to help stimulate new collagen production, promote cell growth and reduce the appearance of scars. It can improve skin texture and tone. PRP is also effective in treating skin conditions like eczema and psoriasis. There are even studies that suggest PRP can help to improve the appearance of cellulite and stretch marks. It has been shown to be effective in treating mild and moderate cases of acne. In addition to its many benefits, PRP is also often a cost-effective alternative for other treatments like surgery, stem cell therapy, or laser treatments.

 

Why does the skin age? 

The skin ages because of the natural process that occurs as you age. As we get older, our cells become more and more damaged. This causes the collagen in our skin to break down which causes the wrinkles and sagging that occurs with aging. There are three main factors that contribute to skin aging. First, a decline in collagen production occurs and it begins breaking down as we age, which results in the sagging of the skin. As we age our collagen loses its ability to hold moisture and elasticity. This causes the skin to sag and wrinkle, giving us that “old” look. Second, our skin cells begin to die and there is no quick cell turnover as seen in youthful skin. As they die they release waste products into the skin which causes it to age and wrinkle. Lastly, as we age, changes in hormones occur that affect collagen production and cause uneven skin tone and discoloration. 

What causes the skin to age prematurely?

Factors that can cause skin damage include exposure to the sun, wind, cold, heat, and humidity. Other causes of skin damage may be a result of cancer treatment or some medical conditions. Injuries can also lead to skin damage. Sun damage – sun exposure can cause premature aging of the skin. Sun exposure damages skin by exposing skin to ultraviolet rays which cause free radical damage and promotes the formation of cancerous cells in the skin. It can also lead to dark circles, wrinkles, and hyperpigmentation like melasma and sunspots.  A poor diet, inadequate water intake, and nutritional deficiencies like vitamin C , vitamin D, and vitamin B, can lead to premature aging of the skin.

There is a new anti-aging method that is quickly gaining popularity and hype – PRP therapy.

What is PRP therapy? It’s a type of treatment that uses platelet-rich plasma, or plasma from ones’ own blood, to help improve the appearance of the skin. PRP helps promotes the release of growth factors, the production of collagen and blood vessels. The theory behind it is that when the body has more blood vessels, there is more oxygen and nutrients available for cells and the skin appears younger. Growth factors stimulate the production of collagen which improves elasticity. 

PRP is a treatment that has been around for decades. While there have been many studies over the years, the most recent ones have shown promising results. One study showed an improvement in elasticity and reduction in wrinkles after only three treatments. 

If you’re looking for a way to slow the aging process, look no further than PRP therapy. This relatively new method of treatment has already seen success in helping people restore their skin elasticity and reduce wrinkles. 

What is a PRP Facial?

 PRP is the new craze for facial skin rejuvenation. The popularity of PRP therapy is on the rise, as it is seen as a new and exciting anti-aging method. PRP therapy uses platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections to help improve blood circulation, which is believed to help improve the health of skin, hair, and nails. One of the most popular uses of PRP is for facial rejuvenation. A PRP facial is a treatment that uses stem cells to rejuvenate your skin. The stem cells are extracted from your body and used in a process that replicates what happens naturally in the body. Stem cells are then infused into your face, where they attach themselves to the collagen and elastin in your skin. The stem cells effectively repair the damage done by free radicals and stimulate new collagen production. These cells are able to rejuvenate your skin cells, making your face look younger and more vibrant. PRP promotes collagen growth and elastin production which can help improve the appearance of fine lines and in some cases immediate results can be seen. 

Studies have shown that PRP can help reduce wrinkles, improve skin tone, and even reverse age-related damage such as wrinkles and age spots. This treatment is also very cost-effective compared to other methods of anti-aging. PRP can help you love the skin you are in! 

 

PRP facial has become one of the most popular cosmetic procedures in recent years. Do you remember that episode from ‘Kourtney and Kim take Miami’ in 2013? The ruby face of Kim Kardashian was all over the tabloids. A smiling Kim posed for the photo with blood splattered over her entire face! Later on, Kim did not seem happy with the publicity photo. But, that does not demean the vampire facial! Many women reported positive results with the PRP procedure

The treatment process: Is it invasive or non-invasive? 

The process starts with a consultation with a doctor or nurse. Some clinics may offer a free consultation. A topical anesthetic is applied to the treatment area or areas of concern prior to treatment to ensure comfort. PRP facial can be performed by injecting directly into the skin or via a micro needling treatment using a micro-needling device to infuse the PRP into the skin. Traditional microneedling does not use PRP but instead uses serums. It would be best to visit a licensed clinic specializing in PRP collagen induction therapy

The PRP treatment has three phases. First, the doctor draws out a little of the patient’s own blood. Secondly, this blood sample is placed on a centrifuge device to separate the components of your blood. This device separates the blood into three distinct layers. The top layer consists of the patient’s own plasma. Platelets and white blood cells form the middle layer, and the red blood cells deposit in the bottom. The doctor uses the platelet-rich middle layer for the treatment. 

Patients can also opt for the non-surgical procedure. It is one of the most effective non-invasive treatments in cosmetic care. The first step is to obtain a small quantity of your blood. Then, the specialist prepares a platelet solution from this mix. After that, the doctor will clean your face and apply the solution topically in a natural way

The areas of the face needing treatment are marked. The specialist will use tiny needles to inject the PRP mix just below the top layer of the skin. Immediately after the PRP injections, the appearance of your skin becomes bloody. It will soon go away when you wash your face. The topical application has minimal downtime, and the entire procedure is over in a short period of time. 

The doctor will also advise you on the healing process. Usually, the total recovery time is up to four to six weeks. Many men also undergo platelet-rich plasma therapy to cover up hair loss. It may need multiple treatment sessions to cover all bald patches. You must provide a small amount of blood. During this period, your skin cells will remain very sensitive. You may apply light sunscreen while going out. However, you should stay away from heavy makeup during this phase. Always ensure that the injection site does not turn into a sore. Your dermatologist will instruct you on how to take care of the treated area. 

Who is a good candidate for PRP?

 You must have healthy cells to re-inject them into your skin. It is not advisable for patients with certain medical conditions. Do not take this treatment if you have any types of blood cancer. 

Also, patients on blood thinners should avoid it. Yes, it ideally requires a very small amount of your blood. However, thinners hamper the blood clot process. So, even a tiny pinprick can lead to serious blood loss in the problem areas! In addition, Hepatitis and AIDS patients must also avoid the therapy.  

Consult a good doctor. The specialist will evaluate the desired areas where you need the treatment. Based on your assessment, the doctor should be able to tell you if you are fit for the procedure. There are no risks of allergic reactions or side effects with the PRP facial since it uses your own blood.
