PRP Therapy in McAllen, TX

*Model. Not an actual patient.

PRP therapy uses the natural healing powers of the blood cells to rejuvenate the skin and create a younger appearance. When performed by the highly trained staff at RGV Cosmetic Surgery & Vein Center, this treatment can produce long-lasting results. We serve patients in Brownsville, McAllen, the Rio Grande Valley, and all of South Texas.

What is PRP Therapy?

PRP therapy, or platelet-rich plasma therapy, is a revolutionary treatment that uses your own growth factors and stem cells from the platelets in your blood to regenerate and revitalize collagen. This treatment leads to naturally smoother and firmer skin, and can be used in many areas of the body. PRP injections have been used for years to help repair joints and tendons, but have recently become a popular method for facial rejuvenation. The treatment is safe and almost pain-free. We use a topical anesthetic for your comfort during the treatment.

How Does PRP Therapy Differ from Dermal Fillers?

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, 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® or dermal fillers, PRP injections are your best option for natural, youthful results.

How Are PRP Injections Performed?

The first step of PRP therapy is drawing blood from the patient. Then, the blood is placed in a centrifuge to obtain the concentrated platelet-rich plasma. Next, after applying a topical anesthetic for comfort, the PRP is injected into the skin. After this, treatment is complete. In addition to facial injections, PRP can also be applied topically to the skin through microneedling.

What Results Can I Expect from PRP Therapy?

For optimal results, we recommend three treatments performed four to six weeks apart. Visible results are notable three weeks after treatment and results will last approximately 18 months. There is little to no downtime, so you can resume normal activities immediately after treatment. Side effects can include bruising, redness, or mild swelling which should resolve within 24 hours.

How Much Does PRP Therapy Cost?

To determine the cost of your PRP therapy, we invite you to schedule a private consultation at our practice. During your consultation, we will assess your cosmetic goals in order to pursue a treatment plan that matches your unique needs. Then, we will be able to provide you with a clear breakdown of the costs associated with your treatment. At RGV Cosmetic Surgery & Vein Center, we accept a number of payment and financing options, including cash, checks, money orders, major credit cards, and CareCredit® financing. We also offer simple and secure online payment options for the convenience of our patients.
