Perhaps the secret behind many of today’s freshest faces, platelet-rich plasma (PRP) contains growth factors and bioactive proteins that are derived from your own blood, making the PRP facial a natural, non-surgical treatment to revive aging or tired skin.
In essence, the PRP facial harnesses the power of the body’s stem cells, promoting the production of collagen. First, a small sample of blood is taken, it is then placed into a centrifuge machine where it is processed and spun rapidly to separate blood platelets from the rest of the blood. The high concentration of platelets is tripled during this process, and when injected into specific areas of the face, the activated platelets call to attention the natural healing properties that are necessary to rejuvenate, restore and repair skin tissues.
Whether you have fine lines, wrinkles, skin texture concerns or scarring, the platelet-rich plasma (PRP) facial is a safe, integrative treatment that improves the quality and appearance of skin.
Facial Rejuvenation Using Platelet Rich Plasma
With distinctive regenerative capabilities, platelet-rich plasma has become a highly effective anti-aging treatment. What’s more is that its results are sustainable, as it triggers cell migration, tissue renewal and collagen production over time. Without changing one’s features, PRP awakens the natural radiance and youthfulness of skin, complementing the personal philosophy of Dr. Evan Ransom.
At the San Francisco Center for Facial Plastic, Reconstructive & Laser Surgery, Dr. Ransom provides facial rejuvenation using platelet-rich plasma. Whether combined with other aesthetic services or provided as a PRP facial treatment, the activated platelets, leukocytes and growth factors found in PRP play a vital role in restoring skin that has changed due to aging and other environmental factors. By stimulating fibroblasts beneath the skin to produce collagen, platelet-rich plasma is used to address fine lines, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, melasma, scarring and skin discoloration.
