One thing most people can agree on is that facial skin problems are hard on our self-esteem. Whether it is dark circles under the eyes, fine lines around the eyes and mouth, or even if the skin tone is just not ideal, imperfections in the face are hard to ignore.
Unfortunately, our options for correction of these imperfections are often limited — either by expense or time commitment. So most people go on, ignoring their dissatisfaction with their appearance.
What many don’t know is there are alternate solutions. One such alternative is Platelet-rich plasma treatments; also known as a PRP treatment, Rosemont residents are beginning to explore this innovative, natural alternative to traditional facial surgery.
Platelets are the cells in the blood that cause tissue to regenerate and new cells to grow. So, to take advantage of this natural rejuvenating properties of your own body, a small blood sample is drawn and using a centrifuge machine, the red and white blood cells are divided from the platelets and the plasma. This plasma now contains a higher than normal number of platelets and is called platelet-rich plasma, or PRP.
Using PRP Treatments in Dermatology
That is all well and good, but what makes PRP such a great alternative solution to the traditional facelift? This is where things get really interesting.
When this PRP is injected into specific areas of the skin it acts as a matrix that promotes your own collagen to grow, regenerates tissue, and thus acts as to naturally smooth and tighten the skin. In this way, PRP softens wrinkles and creating smoother skin texture and tone.
So, without extensive surgery and without putting any unnatural substance into your skin, PRP offers an opportunity to restore smooth, youthful skin. By using the body’s natural regeneration PRP treatments help your skin restore itself.
By using a PRP treatment Rosemont residents find valuable, you can naturally restore your youthful appearance. If you think benefit from PRP procedure or if you have further questions, please contact Dr. Stuart A. Kauffman.
