You’ve heard about platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy, one of the most popular aesthetic and regenerative medicine treatments available. But you’re wondering if this treatment is safe and whether it has any unwanted side effects.
To answer this question, the aesthetic providers at Sublime Aesthetic Professionals in East Grand Forks, Minnesota, have created this helpful guide outlining the basics of PRP therapy and why this treatment is so safe and effective.
If you’re thinking about rejuvenating your skin with all-natural PRP therapy, keep reading to get the information you need.
Your blood has platelets, tiny particles produced in your bone marrow. Platelets help clot your blood and stop you from bleeding out when you get injured.
Platelets are also responsible for stimulating new cell growth and turnover using special growth factors called polypeptides. These growth factors help your skin stay healthy and help your body overcome diseases that affect the health of your tissues.
During FDA-approved PRP treatment, your Sublime Aesthetics provider harnesses the power of platelets to help improve the health and structures of your skin. It works using your own blood that our team places in a special machine called a centrifuge.
The centrifuge separates the platelets from the rest of your blood to create a solution containing 5-10 times more platelets than you’d find in the same amount of blood. We then inject the PRP solution into your skin to promote rejuvenation.
Most PRP therapy sessions don’t take long (10-90 minutes, depending on what you’re treating). At Sublime Aesthetics, we can use all-natural PRP therapy to address many skin issues, including:
There’s no downtime required, and you’ll notice changes to your skin after about three to four weeks. You’ll enjoy your improved skin for up to 18 months* since PRP helps your body make more collagen and elastin, the proteins needed for youthful skin.
PRP skin treatments are incredibly safe because they use cells from your own body and don’t include any synthesized products.
This makes negative reactions to the treatment extremely rare. When people have reactions, they’re typically very mild, resolve quickly, and include things like injection site swelling, bleeding, or bruising.
Since the team at Sublime Aesthetics performs PRP therapy using only sterile techniques in a clean environment, we ensure your treatment is as safe as possible. We also make sure you’re a good candidate for this all-natural therapy to ensure you have the safest, most effective therapy.
