Erase Skin Damage
Do you miss the skin of your youth? If you're mourning the days of a clear complexion without wrinkles, lines, acne scars and age spots, you don't have to wax nostalgic anymore as you look at pictures from days gone by. You have another option to restore your skin to its youthful and wrinkle-free appearance: a PRP facial from Innovations Medical that can help you achieve your goals.
What Is PRP?
PRP stands for platelet-rich plasma. To get PRP, a small amount of your blood (about the same amount as what is taken for lab testing at your annual checkup) is drawn and the PRP is spun and separated from the rest of the blood cells. What remains is dark red plasma full of powerful platelets.
How Is PRP Used?
PRP is then injected into your face or applied to your skin after a micro-needling session. Once injected or applied, PRP induces the body to produce new collagen, which improves skin elasticity. PRP also helps to create new skin cells, which means healing of damaged tissues.
Beyond the face, PRP is also used to heal musculoskeletal injuries such as torn cartilage or tendons and can also help to reverse hair loss.
Other Benefits of PRP Facials
PRP can also help to reduce the signs of aging such as wrinkles and fine lines. It can also help improve your skin tone, healing the damage caused by acne and other skin conditions. The result is beautiful and bright skin.
PRP is also beneficial for patients who have hyperpigmentation of the skin, which means the body produces more melanin in certain areas. Hyperpigmentation causes freckles, melasma, sun spots and dark patches to form on your face.
How Does PRP Work?
PRP helps to heal damaged skin because it contains powerful protein growth factors that help to repair tissue damage. Growth factors are chemical messages that tell the body to start the repair process. For example, these messages alert the body to send blood, oxygen and other nutrients to damaged areas.
