What is PRP?

Platelet-rich plasma therapy is an exciting, regenerative technology that capitalizes on your body’s inherent ability to repair and heal. To obtain PRP, the doctors takes a sample of your blood and spins it down to concentrate the platelets, separate them from the white and red blood cells, and blend them with a small amount of your blood plasma.

Platelets contain tremendous healing capabilities and growth factors that speed cell regeneration. The concentrated growth factors in the PRP mixture have the power to rejuvenate your face and give you a fresh, more youthful look.

How is PRP combined with microneedling?

Microneedling involves poking tiny holes into your dermis to prompt your body’s wound-healing capabilities. The micro-injuries are invisible to the eye, but your body rushes in growth factors and rebuilds collagen to resolve the miniscule wounds.

At Rostami OPC, the doctors combine the microneedling procedure with a hyaluronic acid-containing dermal filler and injections of PRP. Your skin uses the hyaluronic acid to plump and hydrate while the PRP stimulates cellular repair. The result is younger-looking, glowing skin.

What are other applications of PRP?

Dr. Rostami also uses PRP to treat severe dry eye syndrome. PRP treatment enhances the healing from laser skin resurfacing, too. PRP speeds healing and stimulates collagen synthesis to get you better results from your laser treatment.

Is PRP safe?

PRP is derived from a conventional blood draw, usually from a vein in your arm. The PRP comes from you, so there’s no real risk of allergic reaction or rejection.

Who is a candidate for PRP therapy?

Almost anyone with premature wrinkles, sun damage, or uneven skin tone and texture can benefit from PRP treatments. Men and women with acne scars or large pores can also benefit. Discuss your skin concerns with the doctors at Rostami OPC to determine if PRP is right for you.

What are the side effects of PRP treatment?

PRP treatment with microneedling can cause visible redness and swelling, but these side effects resolve in a day or two. Full recovery takes about five days. The doctors advise you to apply specific healing serums during this time to enhance your results.
