Have you been looking in the mirror lately and feel like your skin could use some freshening up? Come to Lowcountry Wellness Center today to receive a PRP Injection. This specialized treatment utilizes the healing factors in your blood to help rejuvenate your skin and restore its youthful appearance. By harvesting the growth factors in your own body, you avoid many of the risks and side effects associated with other dermal filler treatments.
PRP is short for platelet-rich plasma. It is found naturally in your blood and by harvesting and concentrating it, we can inject into areas of your skin to help promote rejuvenation. The treatments are similar to other dermal fillers because they are injected to help sculpt the face. Like dermal filers, a PRP Treatment will increase the volume of an area, refreshing the skin. However, unlike dermal fillers, this treatment contains growth factors which will continue help rejuvenate the area
These growth factors help slow down and, in some cases, reverse the aging process of your skin. Your skin will become and appear younger because the treatment will promote new blood vessel formations. A PRP treatment promotes the new production of collagen which will give the skin on your face a lift. It is just like a facelift, but without the invasive surgery or extended recovery time! Your skin will appear smoother over the course of multiple treatments.
When you visit Lowcountry Wellness Center, you will meet one on one with our specialists. We will review with you your goals and go over the PRP treatment process with you. If we think this can help you achieve your goals, we will schedule an appointment for a treatment session!
When you visit our facility again, we will take a sample of your blood. Next, we will use a specialized machine to pull out the platelet-rich plasma and concentrate it for the injection treatment. After that, we will then administer the injection to the treatment area. All in all, the entire process usually does not take more than 15 minutes. You will be able to leave and go about your day without having to take any recovery time. Bruising, swelling, or redness can occur, but this usually clears up in three days or less if it even appears in the first place.
A PRP treatment is unique and offers many advantages. Because we are using your blood for the treatment, it is much safer for you and will be effective on all skin types and colors. Unlike dermal fillers, there is almost no risk of allergic reactions or rejection. By enhancing your facial volume, fine lines and wrinkles become less pronounced or even vanish as your face fills in. This treatment can be used in sensitive areas like the eyes and mouth where other treatments, such as Botox, might not be as effective.
A PRP Treatment can be safely combined with dermal fillers or surgery without worrying about negative interactions. In fact, a PRP injection is often included in many different rejuvenation treatments to enhance the overall results. A treatment only requires some numbing cream and no surgical procedures are required.
Within about two months, our patients will see significant improvement in the treatment area. Skin texture and tone will improve, and they will see continued improvement up to 3 months after the first treatment. Best of all, this treatment can last from nine months to two years. You will need additional touch up sessions and some maintenance treatments, but this procedure has proven to be long-lasting and effective.
