PRP is a blood product that contains a concentrated amount of platelets, growth factors, and specialized cells, which are the cells in your blood responsible for healing injured and diseased tissue. Athletes have been using PRP for years to accelerate healing after an injury and even prevent the need for more invasive procedures.
More recently, PRP has been used as a cosmetic treatment to rejuvenate the skin. PRP may help:
PRP injections are also used as a treatment to restore hair loss.
PRP works by accelerating your body’s natural healing process. When injected or placed on your skin, the healing properties in the PRP stimulate your body to regenerate new, healthier cells to replace the damaged older cells. PRP also stimulates the production of collagen, which is the protein in your skin that provides strength and elasticity.
Collagen production decreases as you get older, which causes your saggy, crepey skin. By upping collagen production, PRP restores your skin’s youthful look and glow.
The PRP Milani MedSpa uses for your cosmetic treatments is from a sample of your own blood, which minimizes your risk, and makes the procedure 100% natural.
The PRP facial is a revolutionary skin rejuvenating treatment that significantly improves the look and tone of your skin by combining the power of PRP with microneedling.
Often referred to as collagen induction therapy, microneedling uses thin tiny needles that create microtears in the surface of your skin. These microtears trick your skin into thinking it has an injury, so it sends over the healing properties to “repair” the damage. After your microneedling, your practitioner places PRP on your “injured” skin, which accelerates the healing process.
While you may notice an improvement in your skin soon after your rejuvenating PRP facial, it may take up to three months until you to see the final results. With good skin care practices, your PRP facial can keep your skin looking young and fresh for a year or more.
When injected into your scalp, PRP prolongs the growing phase of your hair follicle to improve hair health and strength. PRP has been shown to be as effective at hair restoration as prescription hair-loss medication.
