Indianapolis Benefits from Platelet-Rich Plasma
At Chegar Facial Plastic Surgery, we offer platelet-rich plasma treatments in Indianapolis for people who want to rejuvenate the natural beauty of their faces. Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) stimulates collagen and elastin production which thickens and tightens thinning skin, effectively smoothing wrinkles and fine lines. Because it boosts collagen, it’s also a great treatment for improving overall skin texture and tone. It’s particularly good for people who suffer from rosacea or acne.
Am I a Good Candidate for a Platelet-Rich Plasma Treatment?
You may be a good candidate for a PRP treatment if you are struggling with skin problems such as acne scars, rosacea, wrinkles, fine lines, uneven skin tone, dry skin, and hyperpigmentation. The best candidates are individuals who want to achieve firmer skin and enhanced skin texture.
When you come in for your consultation, board-certified facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon Dr. Burke Chegar can the areas of the face you want to treat to determine if a PRP treatment in Indianapolis is right for you.
The PRP Procedure
Dr. Chegar will start the PRP preparation by withdrawing a small amount of blood from a vein in your arm. The amount of blood is typically around 15 to 50 milliliters. Using a centrifuge, the sample blood will undergo a rapid spinning process that extracts the platelets and plasma from other blood components.
The separated and concentrated sterile platelet-rich plasma contains a large number of essential nutrients and growth factors that stimulate the skin’s healing response. The PRP will be injected or applied into the specific areas that require treatment. PRP can also be combined with microneedling treatments.
To ensure the treatment process is as comfortable as possible, a topical anesthetic can be applied. The entire PRP therapy usually takes less than one hour.
Recovery and Results After Platelet-Rich Plasma Treatment
Most patients are allowed to return to their normal activities of daily routine immediately after the treatment without any recovery time or downtime. The effects of the anesthetic used to numb the skin during platelet-rich plasma therapy typically wane in 1 to 2 hours. Patients may experience a small amount of pain and mild swelling at the injection site.
Optimal results from PRP therapy become visible after three to four weeks and are expected to last up to 18 months.
The cost of your PRP treatment in Indianapolis will be based on the amount of PRP needed for the treatment and other factors that our team will go over when you come in for your consultation. Our team will also go over the details of the payment options available to you.
