How Can PRP Therapy Help My Skin?

How Can PRP Therapy Help My Skin?

Fine lines, wrinkles, and sun damage can add years to your face and give you an uneven complexion. While a skincare routine and products can help, adding platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy can give you noticeable improvements. 

At Vitality Institute of Agoura in Agoura Hills, California, Dr. Stefanie Feldman offers PRP therapy to holistically rejuvenate your skin and increase its youthfulness. 

An overview of platelet-rich plasma 

Platelet-rich plasma, or PRP, is a serum made from your own blood. Your platelets are responsible for responding to injuries, encouraging healing and protein production. The plasma acts as a medium, keeping the platelets active until they’re used. 

During the PRP process, a sample is spun in the centrifuge. This separates the platelets and plasma, concentrating them for targeted use. At Vitality Institute of Agoura, we use the Emcyte Pure PRP System, which isolates higher concentrations of platelets. 

Skin benefits of PRP therapy 

Depending on how it’s used, platelet-rich plasma can have a number of skin benefits. PRP therapy can help reduce the appearance of sunspots, fine lines, under-eye circles, and more. The growth factors in the PRP attract more to the site of injection, leading to cellular turnover and deep healing. PRP therapy can almost seem like it turns back the clock and reverses the appearance of skin aging.

PRP prolongs your results, encouraging rejuvenation to continue long after your treatment is finished. If you have acne scars or other imperfections, it can also speed up healing and reduce the visibility of rough, reddened, or raised patches on your skin.  

Best of all, PRP is tailored to you, since it’s made using your own blood — so there is no risk of an allergic reaction or of your body trying to reject the plasma. It’s a safe, effective, and holistic way to brighten, smooth, and nourish your skin. 

How PRP can be used 

A major advantage of PRP is that it can be combined with other treatments to boost efficacy

When used during procedures like microneedling and laser skin treatments, PRP therapy can improve and prolong your results. The Vitality Institute of Agoura offers both radiofrequency microneedling and laser skin treatments along with PRP therapy. 

Secret RF microneedling combines radiofrequency skin tightening and microneedling. Microneedling creates micro-injuries that allow the RF energy to penetrate more deeply, encouraging production of new collagen and elastin. Lase MD is a non-ablative laser treatment that reduces the appearance of wrinkles and hyperpigmentation. 

Both treatments can be boosted with PRP therapy at your request. To learn more, schedule a consultation by calling 818-208-3803, or request an appointment online
