At Genesis Lifestyle Medicine in Derby, KS, we offer PRP treatments for facial rejuvenation. PRP helps to treat fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, and overall skin texture, promoting a youthful and radiant appearance by activating your body’s natural healing processes.

Rejuvenate your skin with natural growth factors

PRP, or platelet-rich plasma, is a cutting-edge treatment that utilizes the body's own healing properties to rejuvenate the skin. It involves drawing a small amount of the patient's blood, processing it to concentrate the platelets, and then injecting the enriched plasma back into targeted areas of the skin. These platelets release growth factors that stimulate collagen production and cell turnover, resulting in improved skin texture, reduced wrinkles, and diminished acne scars. PRP is a natural, minimally invasive solution for enhancing skin health and achieving a youthful glow.

How does PRP work?

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy harnesses the body's natural healing mechanisms to rejuvenate the skin. The process begins with a small blood draw from the patient. This blood is placed in a centrifuge, which separates the platelet-rich plasma from the other components. Platelets are a type of blood cell that plays a crucial role in healing and tissue regeneration.

When concentrated, PRP releases growth factors and cytokines, which are essential for stimulating collagen production and cell turnover. Once the PRP is prepared, it is injected into targeted areas of the skin. The growth factors in the PRP promote the formation of new collagen and elastin, improving skin texture, firmness, and elasticity. This results in reduced wrinkles, diminished scars, and an overall more youthful appearance.

PRP treatment details

Treatment

During your PRP treatment, a small amount of blood is drawn from your arm. This blood is then spun in a centrifuge to separate the platelet-rich plasma. The PRP is collected and prepared for injection. Your skin will be cleansed, and a topical numbing cream may be applied to ensure your comfort. The PRP is then carefully injected into the targeted areas of your skin using fine needles. The entire process takes about 45 to 60 minutes, and you can typically resume normal activities shortly afterward.

Recovery

After PRP treatment, you may experience mild redness, swelling, or bruising at the injection sites. These side effects typically subside within a few days. There is minimal downtime, and you can usually resume your normal activities immediately. It’s recommended to avoid strenuous exercise and excessive sun exposure for the first 24-48 hours. You might notice initial improvements within a few weeks, with continued enhancements as collagen production increases over the next few months, resulting in a smoother, more youthful complexion.

Results

You can expect to see initial results from your PRP treatment within a few weeks, with more noticeable improvements developing over the following months as collagen production increases. Typically, a series of 3 to 4 sessions spaced 4 to 6 weeks apart is recommended for optimal results. The effects of PRP treatment can last up to 18 months, depending on individual factors such as skin type and lifestyle. Maintenance treatments may be suggested to sustain and enhance the rejuvenating effects.
