Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy McAllen
PRP injections, frequently names in the media as the “vampire face lift,” is a revolutionary treatment that uses your own growth factors and stem cells from the platelet in your blood to regenerate and revitalize collagen. This treatment leads to naturally smoother and firmer skin. PRP facial injection treatment is not new to the medical arena. We have been using PRP injections for years to help repair joints and tendons. The treatment is simple, safe and almost pain free. We use topical anesthetic for your comfort during the treatment.
Now, there is a significant difference between dermal fillers and PRP injections. You will achieve the best outcome when they are used as a combination therapy. However, you need to fully understand that they are separate and different treatments. Dermal fillers are injected and generally last one year. They require repeat treatment to keep up the results. On the other hand, PRP injections stimulate collagen growth even after your treatment. Dermal fillers generally are injected for volume enhancement whereas PRP targets areas such as eye puffiness, skin tone, texture, and tightness. If you are looking for a treatment that will refresh and rejuvenate without having an aggressive surgery or even without neurotoxins such as Botox Cosmetic or dermal fillers, PRP injections is your best option for a natural fountain of youth.
For optimal results, we recommend three treatments performed 4-6 weeks apart. Visible results are notable three weeks after treatment and results will last approximately 18 months. There is little to no downtime. Side effects can include bruising (which can be concealed with cosmetics) and mild swelling and redness of treated areas which last up to 24 hours. Normal activity can be resumed immediately.
In addition to facial injections, PRP can also be applied topically to the skin by using our microneedling devices. See Microneedling tab under Medspa.
