Platelet Rich Plasma Aesthetic and Cosmetic Procedures

Bay Area Platelet Rich Plasma Aesthetics Doctors have moved to the forefront of therapies that can greatly improve aesthetic and cosmetic appearances. Prior to being used for aesthetics, Platelet Rich Plasma was primarily used to help patients improve chronic pain and heal from serious injuries. Now more than ever before, physicians have noticed this therapy’s potent ability to regenerate tissues to reverse or delay signs of aging and revitalize a youthful appearance. Platelet Rich Plasma’s unique ability to be used in conjunction with several other therapies, many specialists use it as a standalone therapy or with other services to help patients achieve optimal aesthetic improvements. Countless patients have been able to achieve amazing treatment results provided by Bay Area Platelet Rich Plasma Aesthetics and Cosmetic Specialists.

How does Platelet Rich Plasma therapy work in the field in aesthetics?

Platelet Rich Plasma therapy can work in conjunction with lasers, surgical operations, facial fillers, or even liposuction to help improve a vast number of aesthetic complaints. Because the Platelet Rich Plasma comes from the patient’s own blood, there is no risk of infection, allergic reactions, or rejections of the therapy. Platelet Rich Plasma contains platelets and growth factors that work at deep levels of the tissues and skin to regenerative, restore, and rejuvenate the body. Another unique aspect of this therapy is that it continues to work for several weeks after the initial procedure, allowing full results to be seen over the course of several weeks.

What are some of the aesthetic procedures that Platelet Rich Plasma therapy can be used for?

Platelet Rich Plasma therapy can be used for a wide range of different aesthetic purposes because it works to regenerate and restore tissue. Some of the procedures that Platelet Rich Plasma therapy is used for include:

Facelifts: Drooping, wrinkled facial skin that lacks volume can result from aging, sun damage, or poor lifestyle habits. Platelet Rich Plasma therapy can restore facial volume, reduce wrinkles, and replenish luster by inserting growth factors and platelets all over the face through very small injections. A PRP facelift only takes around an hour to perform and does not require any downtime.

Butt Lifts: Using the patient’s own blood coupled with fillers, Platelet Rich Plasma is injected into areas of the buttocks to help the patient achieve a curvier appearance. This procedure can be performed in under an hour, allowing patients to return to work the very same day. Results are often permanent because the growth factors work to grow new tissue around the injection site.

Breast Lifts: Women that want to slightly lift their breasts, while creating more cleavage can benefit from a Platelet Rich Plasma therapy breast lift. While PRP does not dramatically increase the size of breasts, it can add cleavage and fill out areas that have lost volume due to aging or childbirth. Women with breast implants can also benefit from a PRP breast lift because implants cannot be placed close enough together to create cleavage.

Hair Restoration: Platelet Rich Plasma therapy can help both men and women with thinning hair to promote the growth of thicker, new hair and to stimulate the regeneration of hair follicles by injecting growth factors into the scalp.

Skin Tightening: Aging, sun damage, or toxins can lead to a loss of collagen production and cause discoloration to appear on different areas of the skin, especially on the face, neck, chest, and hands. Platelet Rich Plasma therapy can tighten skin, while improving unwanted pigmentation.

Acne Treatments: Many adolescents and adults suffer from acne, which is often treated with topical creams, oral medications, or harsh cleansers. Platelet Rich Plasma therapy can help patients with acne to rejuvenate their skin and reduce the appearance of acne, while simultaneously working with other therapies.

Scar Reduction: Patients with scars can often feel self-conscious and have a reduced sense of self-confidence. Platelet Rich Plasma can help men and women that have scars to grow healthy new tissue and eliminate the appearance of scars from acne, surgery, or injuries.

Cellulite Treatments: Millions of people experience cellulite at some point in their lives, which is caused from tightened collagen bands that form dimples in the skin. Because Platelet Rich Plasma restores collagen and promotes tissue growth, it can reduce pits and dimpling on the skin, helping patients to reduce the appearance of cellulite.

Skin Pigmentation Therapies: While lasers are most often used to treat unwanted skin pigmentation, Platelet Rich Plasma therapy can work alone or in conjunction with lasers to help reverse or eliminate freckles, melasma, or an uneven complexion.
