From the moment we are born, we begin to age. Although our skin is constantly aging, it does not show the effects until later in adult years. A healthy lifestyle and protecting your skin from too much sun will go a long way in keep it looking younger longer, but even these precautions will not stave off the inevitable for an indefinite amount of time. Fortunately, your aging skin can be rejuvenated with a PRP facial.
The Self-Healing Body
The body’s mechanisms for healing itself have been studied for decades. Among the findings have been the rejuvenating properties of growth factors and other elements contained in the blood stream. These compounds have been used in a variety of treatments to promote faster healing. Now they are also being used to help slow down the aging process of skin.
Your blood carries substances that can regenerate skin cells; but the problem is, they are diluted within the blood stream. When a portion of blood is filtered, however, they can be brought into a concentrated form. Platelet-rich plasma, or PRP, is the result of filtering blood via centrifuge.
Once the pure PRP has been extracted, it can be injected into the skin where it helps revitalize the cells. This produces an anti-aging effect that becomes noticeable over the next few weeks as the skin regenerates and heals.
Love the Skin You’re In
Youthful, healthy skin is supported by collagen, a protein that lays the foundation for tight, wrinkle-free skin. When production of this protein slows, your skin begins to show small lines and wrinkles. This process can begin around age 30. For some individuals it can begin as young as 28 or 29. Each year you lose about 1-2% of your collagen.
A PRP facial, in conjunction with other rejuvenation techniques, stimulates collagen production, which restores the skin’s smooth texture and improves skin tone. Some areas may need additional treatment with dermal fillers and/or Botox® to produce the desired effect.
