At Sublime Aesthetic Professionals, our team of care providers wants to help you look and feel your best while feeling confident in your aesthetic treatment choices. 

Our practice offers platelet-rich plasma (PRP) treatments to patients in the East Grand Forks, Minnesota, area seeking an effective treatment with no side effects or recovery time. To help you better understand if PRP treatments are right for you, we’ve put together this informative guide. 

Read on to learn if PRP is the solution for you.

What are PRP treatments?

Platelets are cells found in your blood. They carry nutrients and growth factors to parts of your body to foster new cell growth. Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) treatments use the platelets your body produces to encourage healing and promote the development of new cells.   

When you have PRP treatments in your face or neck, your provider at Sublime Aesthetic Professionals uses a small amount of your blood and spins it in a specialized centrifuge to separate your platelets from the remainder of your blood. 

These platelets are combined to create a concentrated solution that is far richer in platelets than what is naturally found in your blood. The PRP solution is then injected into your target treatment areas. 

PRP treatments have a wide variety of uses. For example, you can use PRP treatments to reduce lines around and under your eyes, fill in sunken areas, and smooth away wrinkles on your forehead or chin.  

Since PRP works by stimulating your body’s natural healing processes, results are not immediate. It typically takes about three to four weeks for noticeable results to appear. 

The best part? Since PRP treatments encourage your body to continue to produce more collagen and elastin, your results stick around longer, helping improve your appearance for up to 18 months.

What are the advantages of PRP?

PRP facial treatments have many advantages over other cosmetic therapies designed to combat the signs of aging. For example, PRP treatments have been FDA-cleared for decades, so they’ve been tested over time. 

Other advantages of PRP facial injections include:

Are PRP treatments right for me?

The best way to learn whether PRP treatments are right for your skin goals is to meet with an experienced provider at Sublime Aesthetic Professionals. Our care team reviews your medical history, evaluates your skin, and listens to your concerns and goals before recommending a treatment plan.

The best candidates for PRP have mild-to-moderate skin laxity or looseness and moderate signs of aging on their skin. If you’re considering PRP, you should be in good overall health and have realistic expectations about treatment.

Though PRP is generally safe for most patients, if you take blood thinners, have a blood-clotting disorder or disorder condition, or are pregnant, your Sublime Aesthetic Professionals provider may recommend a different course of treatment.
