Platelet-rich plasma, or PRP, is currently being utilized in multiple therapies for its ability to internally heal the skin using the body’s own resources. At Plateroti Dermatology, we utilize this cutting-edge therapy along with our clinically-proven micro-needling treatments for optimal results that are both immediate and long-lasting.
Serving Templeton and surrounding areas in California, Plateroti Dermatology is led by board-certified dermatologist Dr. Carmelo Plateroti. Contact us today to schedule a consultation and find out how PRP treatments can benefit your skin.
Platelet-rich plasma is currently used in several fields of medicine and in multiple aesthetic treatments for its healing properties. This valuable resource is derived from the patient’s own blood using a safe, comfortable, multi-step process:
- A small sample of blood is collected from the patient and is run through a sterile centrifuge
- This process separates the blood into separate components – red blood cells, white blood cells, platelets, and plasma.
- The plasma, which is the liquid portion of the blood, is enriched with more platelets than normal. These platelets contain beneficial growth factors that can facilitate the regeneration of new tissues. This is PRP.
- The PRP is extracted from the sample and is either injected or applied topically for integration into the skin.
How Does PRP Work?
Once it has been absorbed into the skin, PRP benefits the skin by acting as a protective matrix that stimulates your body’s growth of natural collagen. This helps heal skin from the inside out, smoothing visible signs of aging and subtly improving overall appearance without any unnatural ingredients. This treatment can also
help improve circulation in the skin, restoring a youthful glow.
When paired with micro-needling, PRP can also speed up the skin’s natural healing process for faster, more dynamic results.
