What if we told you that you could make your skin look younger, firmer, and brighter all with the help of your blood? Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) treatment involves the injection of your body’s platelets to rejuvenate the skin dramatically. This non-surgical treatment can tighten sagging skin, smooth out fine lines and wrinkles, and give you that radiant glow we all desire. At Mitchell Dermatology in Perrysburg, Ohio, our experienced cosmetic team can help you achieve the skin of your dreams with PRP treatment.
PRP treatment utilizes a concentrated serum of your body’s plasma containing stem cells and growth-rich platelets to stimulate collagen and elastin production.
The procedure itself is completed in a few steps. The initial step is extraction, where we draw a small amount of blood that is then placed into a centrifuge to separate the plasma. The second step is activation, where we use a microneedling procedure to inject the platelet-rich plasma into the skin. The last step is healing as the body responds to the micro-injuries and begins repairing and rejuvenating.
While other injectable treatments such as Botox or dermal fillers effectively address the various signs of aging on the skin, they are temporary. They do require routine maintenance to prolong results. On the other hand, PRP treatment uses your body’s platelets and natural healing abilities to create long-lasting results.
Patients interested in PRP treatment should be in good overall health without any severe blood or skin conditions. Individuals who have low platelet counts, unmanaged diabetes, take blood thinners, or are pregnant may not be suited for PRP treatments.
At Mitchell Dermatology, we treat every patient like the unique individual they are. During our comprehensive consultations, we’ll listen to your concerns, evaluate your skin, and work with you to develop a treatment plan guided by your individual needs, budget, and goals.
