Indianapolis Benefits Platelet Rich Plasma
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 platelet rich plasma 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.
The PRP Procedure
Dr. Chegar will start the platelet rich plasma 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 will be injected or applied into the specific area that requires treatment. The entire PRP therapy usually takes less than one hour.
Recovery and ResultsAfter 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 tolerable 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.
