Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) treatment works by regenerating the growth of new skin cells while simultaneously healing older skin cells, leaving you looking vibrant and rejuvenated. The Dermatology Institute of Southern California is pleased to offer our patients one of the most innovative treatments available to fight aging – platelet rich plasma, also known as PRP. After a PRP treatment by Dr. Behroozan and his team of leading Los Angeles dermatologists, your skin will feel younger and fresher than ever.
How Does PRP Work to Rejuvenate Skin?
PRP involves an injection of blood with a high concentration of platelets into targeted regions of your face, hence the name platelet rich plasma. The platelet-rich blood is drawn from your own body and then re-injected into areas with unwanted signs of aging. The platelets work by restimulating the skin’s production of collagen and healing old skin tissue, giving you a tighter, brighter, healthier look.
The treatment is designed to give your skin that extra glow and vibrancy it so craves while reversing wrinkling caused by aging or prolonged exposure to the sun. For the most effective, long-lasting results, we recommend three PRP treatments over the course of six to eight months.
What to Expect from PRP Treatment
Our board-certified doctors will customize your PRP treatment to target areas that show unwanted signs of aging around your face. In general, PRP is recommended to help reduce the presence of dark circles, puffiness, and wrinkles under the eyes, as well as wrinkling around the mouth and cheeks.
PRP is a great solution for patients looking for smoother skin with a more even, refined texture and tone. The injection is often recommended to add volume to your face in places that have lost collagen to give you a plumper, fuller look in places that need it. It can also and can be used to target acne scars and stretch marks.
Post-PRP: What to Expect from Recovery
This minimally-invasive PRP treatment is performed as an outpatient procedure at our office, and requires no downtime or recovery. The entire process can be performed in less than half an hour and involves virtually no pain or discomfort. Because the platelets are drawn from the patient’s own body, the treatment is completely natural and safe.
