Are you tired of having dull, tired-looking skin? If so, you’ve got to try PRP therapy. It’s designed to completely revitalize and refresh your skin, giving you that radiant glow and making your skin smooth and soft. As you age, your skin starts to dull and lose its elasticity, but this treatment can reverse that. Here at Live Medspa in Miami, FL, we offer this treatment, also called platelet-rich plasma therapy, to our patients that want to have smooth, beautiful skin again.
What Is PRP Therapy?
PRP therapy uses your own blood to revitalize and rejuvenate your skin, which is why it’s also called a “vampire facial.” The first step is to take a very small sample of your blood. Don’t worry, we don’t need much. In fact, it’s very simple and just like getting blood drawn at the doctor.
Next, we take your blood sample and put it in a centrifuge. Did you ever go on that ride at the carnival where you’re standing against the wall, and then you start spinning faster and faster, then the floor suddenly drops out? Well, it’s the same principle. We put your blood in the centrifuge to spin and separate the unneeded red blood cells from the platelet-rich plasma. This is how we get the plasma for your therapy.
After we separate the PRP from your blood sample, you’ll undergo the actual treatment process. It’s a process called microneedling, where we use an ultra-fine micro needle to administer the platelet-rich plasma deeply into your skin. We do this process with a hand-held device that uses those tiny needles to create extremely small punctures in your skin.
After the microneedles make those small punctures, we inject the platelet-rich plasma deep into your skin in the areas you want to be treated. This allows the plasma to penetrate deeply and trigger the skin’s healing process, which refreshes and rejuvenates your skin.
Why Does the Skin Age Over Time?
Your skin ages over time as your body produces less and less collagen. If you don’t know what collagen is, it’s a substance your body produces naturally that helps hold connective tissue together and keeps your skin feeling supple and looking beautiful and smooth.
As you start to enter your late 20s, your body produces less collagen. Then, once you hit your 40s, the body’s collagen production diminishes even further. This causes the effects of aging like fine lines, wrinkles, pockets in your skin, bags under your eyes, and other signs of the aging process. Cosmetic injectables are the first and foremost treatment to help get rid of these signs of aging, which is why PRP therapy is so effective.
What Kind of Issues Does PRP Therapy Treat?
If you’ve got those pesky vertical lines between your eyebrows, you’ve got frown lines. These lines and wrinkles can also appear if you squint. In fact, they can make you look upset or angry even when you’re not. Luckily, this treatment is designed to effectively eliminate those harsh lines, smoothing them away.
These wrinkles form on the outside corner of your eyes. Usually, these lines form when you smile, but they can be very noticeable and make you look much older than you actually are. This is another area this therapy can treat.
Forehead lines are exactly what they sound like: lines on your forehead. These can be some of the deepest wrinkles on your face, especially as you age more. It doesn’t matter how deep they are, this therapy can help you erase those lines and make your forehead smooth again.
These are the vertical lines and wrinkles that form on both sides of your mouth. Unfortunately, they can make you look old. This treatment will help you soften those lines so you look youthful and happy again.
These wrinkles are on either side of your nose and will become deeper over time as you smile and make other facial expressions.
Uneven and Dark Skin Tone
This therapy can also treat uneven skin tone. Your skin tone can become uneven over time, especially if you’ve spent a lot of time in the sun. If your skin tone is too dark, you can also use this treatment to even out your tone, making your skin look bright and beautiful again.
If you suffered from acne when you were younger, there’s a good chance that you may still have some scars on your face. This treatment can help renew your skin, making your acne scars diminish or even disappear completely.
What Are Some Benefits of This Treatment?
No Surgery or Painful Recovery Time
One of the best advantages of this treatment is that it’s non-surgical and doesn’t require any painful downtime at all. There’s no general anesthesia, and you won’t have to spend time in the hospital at all. You’ll simply be able to go back to your normal day after your treatment.
This treatment is also all-natural since it’s your body’s own blood that’s used. That means there’s no risk of allergies, like with some other cosmetic injectable treatments. There’s also no risk of your body rejecting the treatment, like with some other options.
What Kind of Results Can You Expect with This Treatment?
This treatment will give you results in about the first week or two. You will see full results anywhere from four to six weeks after your treatment session. This is because it takes time for your skin to refresh and renew itself.
How Long Do the Results Last?
You should remember that every person is unique, so individual results will vary. However, most of our patients see results anywhere from three to five months after their treatment session. You can also maintain your results by taking very good care of your skin and avoiding exposure to the sun. That means wear sunscreen with a high SPF every single day, and use premium skincare products and serums to get deep hydration.
Who Is a Suitable Candidate?
Most of our patients are suitable candidates for this treatment because it’s ideal for virtually every skin type. Once you come for your initial consultation, we’ll talk to you about your general medical history and the skin problems that you’re having. Then, we’ll develop a customized treatment plan for your exact skin needs so you can achieve the aesthetic goals you want.Say No to tired & Dull looking skin.
