PRP Injections Q & A
What is PRP?
PRP is a “growth factor cocktail” the team at Dana Point Dermatology creates from a sample of your own blood. Your blood contains different elements, including red and white blood cells, plasma, and platelets.
The platelets are best known for helping to stop a cut from bleeding through the formation of a blood clot.
However, these platelets also contain specialized proteins and growth factors that your body uses to regenerate new tissue to heal the injury. PRP contains a high concentration of these healing properties and accelerates the healing and repair process.
What are PRP injections?
The team at Dana Point Dermatology offers PRP injections to rejuvenate your aging skin. They use microneedling as the “injection” for the PRP.
Microneedling is a cosmetic treatment that creates microtears in the surface of your skin, which triggers collagen production. Collagen is the protein that provides your skin with its strength and resilience.
By combining PRP with microneedling, the aesthetic team at Dana Point Dermatology accelerates collagen production to revitalize your skin. Your PRP injections may:
- Lessen the appearance of lines and wrinkles
- Even out your complexion
- Improve skin texture
- Diminish the appearance of acne scars
The team at Dana Point Dermatology also uses PRP injections as a treatment for hair loss. The PRP restores your hair line by increasing the growth phase of the hair cycle.
What can I expect during PRP injections?
The anti-aging team at Dana Point Dermatology performs your PRP injections at their oceanfront office. The team first draws a sample of blood from your arm to create your PRP.
Then, your skin is cleansed with an antibacterial agent and a numbing agent is applied, if needed, to minimize discomfort.
Once your skin is properly prepared, your clinician applies the PRP to your face and then uses the microneedling tool to inject the healing properties into your skin. After your microneedling, your clinician may apply a soothing cream and sunblock.
You may experience some redness after your treatment, but you should be able to resume most of your usual activities within a day after your session. While results vary, you should start to notice an improvement in your skin soon after treatment.
The anti-aging team at Dana Point Dermatology may suggest a series of PRP injections to get the best results.
