PRP: How It's Making a Splash in the Cosmetic World

PRP: How It's Making a Splash in the Cosmetic World

You’ve probably heard about platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy, a regenerative medicine treatment used to speed healing and reduce inflammation. But did you know that PRP treatments are fast becoming one of the most popular aesthetic therapies on the market?

PRP treatments use growth factors found in your blood to trigger new cell growth, promote healing, and reduce inflammation. When combined with aesthetic treatments, this powerful therapy can take years off your appearance and improve the health of your skin.   

At Sublime Aesthetic Professionals in East Grand Forks, Minnesota, our team of aesthetic providers uses PRP to rejuvenate your skin. If you’re interested in gaining a more youthful appearance — without a scalpel and lengthy recovery times — keep reading to learn how this innovative treatment is making a splash in the cosmetic world.  

Why is PRP an effective treatment?

Your blood contains different particles, including platelets, which originate in your bone marrow and help your blood clot when you’re injured. But they also have growth factors called polypeptides, which stimulate cell division and growth.   

When you have an FDA-approved PRP treatment, your provider draws a small amount of your blood and spins it in a centrifuge. This separates the platelets, which your provider uses to create a super-concentrated plasma solution with 5-10 times more platelets than in your blood alone. 

Your provider then injects the PRP solution into the predetermined treatment areas, which we determine together based on your aesthetic goals. Depending on your goals, you can get PRP to address many skin concerns, including:

Because PRP relies on your body’s natural cell regeneration, noticeable results take about three to four weeks. PRP results are long-lasting, however, because your body keeps producing more of the essential proteins needed for younger-looking skin, like collagen and elastin. You can expect to enjoy your skin rejuvenation for up to 18 months.*

Why is PRP so popular in the cosmetic world?

PRP skin treatments are taking the cosmetic world by storm because they offer so many benefits. Besides being incredibly effective, advantages of PRP skin rejuvenation include:  

One of the best things about PRP treatments is that most people in good overall health are candidates for this all-natural therapy. If you have mild or moderate loose skin and moderate signs of aging, chances are PRP can help you. Your Sublime Aesthetic Professionals provider helps determine the right treatment for you.
