• 5 Things to Know Before Using PRP Treatments

    Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a revolutionary branch of regenerative medicine that has become a popular cosmetic injectable. The procedure involves injecting areas of the body in need of enhancement with blood plasma, which is high in healing and rejuvenating elements.

    Located in Culver City, our medical spa has developed a reputation for providing effective cosmetic treatments using PRP to clients in Culver City, Marina Del Rey, Playa Vista, and Mar Vista.

    PRP is Made From Your Blood

    Platelet-rich plasma is created using a small sample of your blood, which is centrifuged to isolate platelets and extract therapeutic growth factors and stem cells. This concentrated serum is reinjected into your body to target the areas you want to rejuvenate. Since you are using your body’s elements without the addition of any foreign or unnatural substances, there is virtually no risk associated with the treatment.

    Platelet-Rich Plasma Can Be Used for Hair Regrowth

    PRP treatments stimulate hair growth in both men and women. PRP injections trigger natural hair growth by increasing blood supply to your hair follicle and increasing the thickness of the hair shaft. The platelet-rich plasma is injected into parts of your scalp that require increased hair growth. Since we’re using your blood, extracting the best components, and reintroducing it into your body in a concentrated form, you aren’t at risk for getting an infection or disease.

    PRP is Key to Many Facial Cosmetic Enhancements

    PRP is used in aesthetic medical care to boost facial rejuvenation, volume and glow; to help scars heal; and to promote faster healing after plastic surgery. PRP injections refresh your skin, improve your skin’s texture, and even help smooth out wrinkles.

    Since the treatment stimulates your body’s ability to produce new healthy skin cells, it’s effective for difficult-to-treat or delicate areas, such as, around your eyes where you might notice signs of aging like “crow’s feet.” PRP can also treat skin that has been damaged by the sun.

    In addition to treating the face, PRP is also effective at restoring wrinkled, sagging, or otherwise aged skin on the hands, neck and décolletage. PRP is not a filler but can be used in conjunction with natural fillers to enhance your appearance.

    Treatment Requires Minimal Downtime

    Platelet-rich plasma injections are very safe. It is an outpatient procedure that requires little to no downtime. There’s no need for bed rest or to miss out on your everyday activities. You can come in for an appointment and resume your day afterward.

    Platelet-Rich Plasma is Suitable for Almost Anyone

    Whether you are male or female, you can benefit from platelet-rich plasma. PRP treatment is an excellent option for a wide range of concerns, from skin that’s lost elasticity and volume, to thinning hair. PRP has many benefits, including improving your skin’s tone and texture; reducing fine lines; and stimulating collagen, elastin, and skin cell production for a younger-looking, more radiant complexion.
