PRP, the acronym for platelet-rich plasma, uses the healing power of your blood to rejuvenate your skin. At the Lasky Skin Center, we are pleased to provide PRP injections. Many patients in Beverly Hills find that this treatment delays the need for plastic surgery and provides natural-looking results that improve over time.
What Is PRP and How Does It Work for Skin Rejuvenation?
PRP injections are simple and offer many benefits. They start with a blood draw. Then, our team isolates the PRP from the rest of the blood using a centrifuge device. Once the PRP has been separated, it is injected into the treatment area. The growth factors in PRP stimulate skin cell turnover and collagen production. This effect smoothes the skin and reduces signs of aging, including fine lines and wrinkles. This treatment can be used in lieu of surgical options to address mild to moderate signs of aging for both men and women.
How Long Does It Take To Recover From PRP Injections?
Many patients who visit the Lasky Skin Center of Beverly Hills, CA, wonder how long it takes to recover from these injections, and there is no single answer to this question. The recovery time depends on the condition you are addressing with PRP and the extent of your treatment. Most people generally feel better within a few days after their PRP injection, although some may take longer than others to recover fully. Some patients experience mild discomfort at the injection sites, and bruising can occur. It’s best to speak with your provider about your individual treatment plan. That way, you will learn what to expect and get an estimate of when you can return to normal activities following your PRP injections.
