How Platelet Rich Plasma Works

By root November 25, 2019

Platelet rich plasma is a natural product created from your own body. These platelets are rich in growth factors that aid the healing process throughout the body. Platelet rich plasma has a history of medicinal use in orthopedics and dentistry, and now its benefits are being applied to other fields of medicine such as aesthetic medicine. 

Platelets are the cells in the blood that help tissue to heal and grow new cells. Platelet rich plasma is created from your own blood, making it a safe and natural solution for improving your appearance. Platelet rich plasma is made by a small amount of blood being drawn and placed in a sterile tube that is spun in a centrifuge to separate the different components of the blood. Red and white blood cells are divided from the platelets and the plasma (the clear fluid). This plasma now contains a high concentration of platelets and is called platelet rich plasma. 

When injected into the skin, platelet rich plasma can help to heal damaged tissue and encourage growth of new healthy cells. Platelet rich plasma also stimulates the production of collagen. Collagen is essential in keeping skin firm and young looking. Increased collagen can help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on your face.

Platelet rich plasma is a simple, effective, and safe way to improve your skin and your appearance. The procedure is quick (15 minutes total), relatively painless, and requires no post procedure care or time off from daily events. Because the platelet rich plasma is made from your own cells, there is no risk of allergy or rejection and you’ll get natural looking results. 

Results begin to show 3-4 weeks after the treatment session and continue to improve with time. Three treatment sessions are generally recommended, spaced 1-2 months apart, to achieve the best outcome.

Platelet rich plasma therapy can be combined with other treatments to best target a patient’s unique issues and achieve younger looking skin. In Rancho Cucamonga, Dr. Vidor will personally evaluate your skin issues and describe the treatments that would be most helpful for you.
