Your blood consists mainly of liquid plasma, with smaller amounts of solid components like red cells, white cells and platelets. Platelets help to clot blood, and also contain important healing proteins. Dr. Alkadri creates platelet rich plasma by drawing a small amount of a patient’s blood, and then spinning it in a centrifuge to separate platelets from the other components. This concentrated plasma can then be used in a variety of treatments to encourage healing and stimulate cell growth.
There are a variety of benefits exclusive to platelet rich plasma, as it is a unique cosmetic treatment.
Platelet rich plasma can be used in different ways to achieve your unique cosmetic or therapeutic goals. Dr. Alkadri is an expert provider and will discuss your projected outcome prior to beginning treatment.Some of the most popular treatment goals for PRP therapy include:
No, treatment is not typically painful. The treatment area is numbed topically before any injections are performed. Most patients experience little to no discomfort during the procedure. You may experience some tenderness after treatment but this will quickly fade.
The time until you see your full results will vary from patient to patient, depending on age, skin type, diet and more. Noticeable initial results may take anywhere from 2-12 weeks to appear.
Dr. Alkadri may recommend several treatment sessions at predetermined intervals to achieve your desired results. Touch-up treatments may also be beneficial.
Length of results depends on the area treated and on many other factors. Dr. Alkadri will discuss specific expectations with you prior to treatment. On average, PRP facial results last up to 18-24 months.
