Have you heard the buzz about PRP filler injections being used for facial rejuvenation? It’s not just celebrities taking this route to combat the effects of aging. This trending anti-aging treatment involves injecting platelet-rich plasma (or PRP) into your face to rejuvenate the skin tissue without resorting to surgery.
By combining PRP facial treatments with Hyaluronic Acid, (HA), which attracts and holds moisture within the layers of your skin, our dentists at Elite Dental & Facial Esthetics can give you amazing anti-aging results. PRP filler injections with HA hydrates and plumps the dermal layer to give you softer, smoother-looking skin by reducing fine lines, wrinkles, crows feet and scars. This leading-edge treatment is an in-office procedure that can quickly enhance your appearance. A minimally-invasive option, it is excellent for minimizing pores, volumizing the face and healing scars by boosting collagen growth.
When you come in for a PRP treatment, our dentists will draw a blood sample from you and place it into a centrifuge where the platelets will be separated from the rest of your blood. This concentrated serum of platelets (5-10 times higher levels than a typical blood sample) and the growth proteins are then injected into your skin. This will stimulate collagen and elastin growth and revitalize your facial features for a more youthful glow!
PRP Treatment Benefits
-When using your own platelets for treating tissues there is usually no adverse reaction to the injection.
-Hyaluronic Acid is also a natural element in your skin so it doesn’t incur a reaction either.
-You can usually resume your regular activities after having your PRP filler injection.
-The typical length of time from drawing the blood to receiving the injection is only around half-an-hour.
PRP treatment can also be combined with our micro-needling treatment to promote collagen growth so you get the finer, smoother and healthier-looking skin you desire! It is especially effective in tightening skin and shrinking pores and even scars.
