We all have certain aspects of our body that we wish we could improve. For some, this is hair loss. For others, it is dull, ruddy skin. Some of us struggle to age gracefully due to years of exposure to the sun, pollutants and other irritants. At ChiYan MediSpa in Cutler Bay, FL, we are passionate about helping our clients feel more comfortable and confident regardless of their cosmetic concerns. For many people, that confidence can be achieved through PRP therapy.
5. Incredible Benefits of PRP Therapy
1. Skin Rejuvenation
PRP therapy is most commonly used for cosmetic purposes to rejuvenate the skin. To accomplish skin rejuvenation, PRP is injected directly into your trouble regions. One of the major advantages of PRP is that it comes straight from your body. There is no risk that you will have a negative or allergic reaction to the treatment. Platelet-rich plasma stimulates the stem cells in the treatment site. These stem cells allow the remaining cells in the treatment site to heal and rejuvenate.
The upper layers of your skin are comprised of dead skin cells. After a few weeks of neglect, your facial skin can start to look incredibly dull. You may even notice issues related to the texture and tone of your skin. Thanks to the powerful healing properties of cellular rejuvenation and cellular turnover, you can enjoy clear, smooth, even skin.
2. Hair Restoration
One of the lesser-known benefits of PRP is nearly miraculous hair restoration. It is most effective for the treatment of hair loss caused by androgenetic alopecia. Androgenetic alopecia refers to a condition characterized by shrunken hair follicles which result in thinning hair. However, it can also treat other types of hair loss effectively.
PRP is so effective for the restoration of hair growth because the platelets in the platelet-rich plasma are very rich in human growth hormone. This hormone helps to heal the damage done to the hair follicles so hair can grow thicker and healthier. More importantly, it allows your hair to spend more time in the growth phase. The growth phase of the hair growth cycle determines how long your hair will be.
Microneedling is one of the most effective anti-aging treatments on the market. However, when combined with platelet-rich plasma therapy, the effects are compounded. Microneedling alone prompts your body to make new, healthy, strong collagen by creating “micro-injuries” when the needles penetrate your skin. It can be used to improve the complexion of the skin, smooth out abnormalities in skin texture and temporarily correct fine lines and wrinkles.
There are a couple ways to add the benefits of PRP to microneedling. The most popular method is known as a “vampire facial”. Using this technique, your platelet-rich plasma is applied to the skin that you are targeting for treatment. As the needles used for microneedling penetrate the skin, they essentially inject the platelet-rich plasma straight where you need it the most.
One of the primary advantages of this technique is that it is easier to cover larger areas. When added to microneedling, platelet-rich plasma makes the results more readily visible and longer-lasting while eliminating the risk of side effects.
4. Dermal Fillers
Platelet-rich plasma therapy alone has incredible effects. However, when it is combined with dermal fillers, such as Radiesse or Juvederm, the results are astounding. Dermal fillers and neuromodulators like Botox are used to address the signs of aging, including forehead lines and marionette lines, nasolabial folds, crow’s feet, forehead wrinkles, thinning lips and gaunt cheeks.
However, the results of treatment from injectables are not immediate, and you may experience very temporary side effects. When you combine these treatments with PRP, the results are much more immediate. Even better, PRP mitigates the risk of experiencing side effects. Finally, when combined with hyaluronic acid fillers, PRP offers a clinically visible and statistically significant improvement in the appearance of skin.
5. Skin Tightening
One of the most common and disconcerting signs of aging is loose skin. Loose skin occurs when the collagen and elastin in your skin become old and weak. By the age of 25, your skin starts to produce collagen at a 1% slower rate per year. By the time you are 35, you may find that your body doesn’t produce enough collagen by itself to keep your skin taut and firm.
Besides promoting cellular rejuvenation and cellular turnover, PRP promotes the growth of collagen and elastin. This tightens skin that is loose due to aging or drastic weight loss. PRP is most often used to treat loose skin around the chin, forehead and cheeks. Moreover, PRP helps your skin look tighter by promoting collagen production, which fills in wrinkles, lines and folds caused by volume loss.
