You’ve likely heard the name before, “platelet-rich plasma,” but what exactly is this substance, and how is it used? From the medical office to the medspa, PRP has developed a reputation as a natural treatment that delivers results. This substance is derived from your own body, reinjected, and made to promote accelerated healing – whether in the joints or on the skin.
Vita Aesthetics & Wellness is here to unravel the mystery. The magic of platelet-rich plasma cannot be overstated. This treatment can provide gorgeous, desired results without hassle or foreign substances. Below is an exploration of this revolutionary treatment and what it can do for you. To learn more and try it for yourself, schedule your consultation at our Whittier office today.
PRP Has Been Around for a Long Time
You may have recently heard about platelet-rich plasma, but this treatment isn’t new. PRP was first developed in the 1970s and was used in the 80s as part of surgical procedures like open heart surgery. It became popular in the 90s and has since been applied in many medical fields, particularly in physical therapy, pain management, sports medicine, and even dentistry.
Considering its long history and wide range of applications, you can rest assured that PRP has been rigorously tested and proven safe. So, if you’re considering an aesthetic treatment with PRP, you are in good hands. This is especially true because…
Platelet-rich Plasma Doesn’t Rely on Chemicals
Introducing foreign substances and chemicals into your body is a common concern among many, particularly those new to the aesthetics industry. Fortunately, PRP is unlike most other treatments. This procedure relies on growth factors extracted from your own body.
The process involves a small blood draw, followed by isolating these growth factors and their reinjection into the area you want to be treated. Since the substance used is derived from you, PRP carries no risk of rejection and has little to no side effects.
It Can Address Several Skin Concerns
Skin rejuvenation is something PRP excels at. These treatments are coupled with microneedling procedures to stimulate healing and infuse your skin with natural growth factors. The following issues can be addressed using this treatment:
- Acne Scarring
- Sun Damage
