PRP - Facial Rejuvenation

Facial rejuvenation is sought by men and women all around the world. Historically, tighter, smoother skin has been achieved with lifting procedures such as a brow lift, eyelid lift, or full facelift. Today, we are treating many of the cosmetic concerns of aging with non-surgical, minimally-invasive procedures. PRP therapy is one of them.

What is PRP

PRP is Platelet-rich Plasma, a substance derived from your own blood. To complete treatment, we use a small amount of blood drawn here in our office. Using a centrifuge, we “spin down” the blood. This causes the desired substance, plasma, to separate from other cells. Plasma is a clear fluid that is primarily platelets and nourishing growth factors.

How PRP replenishes the skin

One of the significant roles played by platelets is to regenerate tissues when an injury has occurred in the body. Scientists have discovered that, when PRP is strategically inserted into dermal tissues, the body has a healing response even in the absence of injury. In the weeks and months following treatment, the fibrous matrix that supports the skin is refreshed with healthy substances. Subsequently, the skin becomes smoother and tighter.

How PRP differs from injectables

Dermal fillers promote rejuvenation by restoring volume to the tissues beneath the skin. Many of the fillers used today are made of hyaluronic acid, a natural substance that immediately plumps lines and creases around the eyes, nose, and mouth. Depending on the consistency of the filler and the body’s metabolism of the product, results can last up to 18 months. Whereas fillers add something to the skin, PRP stimulates the body to produce more collagen on an ongoing basis. This treatment, like fillers, can recreate better cheek definition and fuller, more rounded contours. Additionally, increased collagen keeps skin smoother and younger-looking. In some instances, PRP and dermal fillers act as complementary treatments, maximizing the results that are possible.

The PRP facial can be advantageous for the man or woman seeking supple, more youthful skin without surgery. The reformation of healthy new collagen replenishes the skin from the inside out for a gradual, beautiful lift.

Dr. Neeraja C. Mattay Reviewed by Joyce D.

I am so appreciative to Dr. Mattay for her wonderful patient manner in carefully explaining diagnoses, procedures, and treatments with thoroughness, resources, and immediate follow up after procedures over the years. I recently had a “coolsculpturing” procedure administered by Lauren Kellmel, Esthetician, to remove stubborn fat from my mid-section. The procedure was painless, involved no surgery or invasive procedures, and no down time. I wanted to ensure the procedure targeted the fat cells underneath the skin while leaving the skin itself unaffected, so I was extremely impressed by the free consultant session in which Lauren shared all aspects of the procedure and was very patient to respond to my questions. I felt totally prepared for the procedure and have been extremely happy with results.

I highly recommend Dermatology Associates of Northern Virginia for the very best in patient centeredness, knowledgeable and current techniques, and in their skin, face and eye products. Thank you.
