In the past, if you had acne scarring or wrinkles on your face, the only treatment option available to you was laser resurfacing surgery, which could easily leave your skin burned and scarred (not to mention the thousands of dollars it would cost you). Thankfully, today’s technology has made non-invasive procedures like PRP face treatment possible – and they can actually be a lot more effective than going under the knife! Here are just five reasons to get PRP face treatment New York City, NY, as written by our friends at Rebalance NYC!
The top reason to get a platelet-rich plasma (PRP) treatment is that it gives your face a fresh start. This treatment stimulates your body’s natural healing process, so your skin will have new cells and grow back stronger than before. By injecting your own growth factors into your skin, you can regenerate new collagen, reduce fine lines and wrinkles, treat acne scars and more.
2) Facial volume loss
Facial volume loss is very common in both men and women as we age. As we get older, our skin loses elasticity, collagen, and elastin production declines and subcutaneous fat often diminishes. The combined result is a sagging, tired-looking face that can be tough to escape after age 35 or so. What you can do is regain some of your facial volume by seeking out injectable treatments with platelet-rich plasma (PRP).
3) Reducing visible signs of aging
As we age, our skin becomes less elastic and its natural collagen production slows down. Many treatments such as chemical peels or microdermabrasion help reduce wrinkles but since they don’t help your skin produce more collagen, you may still experience visible signs of aging. A more invasive procedure like a facelift can actually leave scars and cause downtime that might make you avoid it altogether. The good news is, a new type of treatment called platelet-rich plasma (PRP) uses your own stem cells and stimulates your body to regenerate from within.
4) Muscle recovery and growth
Though doctors may inject platelet-rich plasma into a variety of body parts, it’s most commonly used in facial treatments. The injected cells are believed to aid in muscle recovery and growth. They may also reduce wrinkles by stimulating new collagen production and improving existing collagen production. When you consider that your face is one of your first impressions when meeting someone for the first time, it makes sense that people would want to keep their skin looking youthful as long as possible.
5) Skin blemishes, scarring and lesions
Varying degrees of skin blemishes, scarring, and lesions can have an extremely negative impact on your self-esteem. Fortunately, there is a non-invasive solution that may help you get clear skin – Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) treatment. PRP is a liquid concentrate of your own blood that has been spun in a centrifuge for maximum plasma concentration. As it heals your skin from beneath, it’s also working from within to reduce inflammation and regenerate collagen, thus softening those blemishes while boosting production of new healthy cells. Injections can improve dull or tired looking skin, fine lines and wrinkles, and uneven pigmentation issues such as dark patches around your eyes or blotchy patches on your face or neck.
