5 Benefits of Platelet-Rich Plasma
1. Stimulate Collagen Production
Vitamin C is an antioxidant, meaning it defends your skin from free radicals that can harm your skin. With regular use, vitamin C can help heal blemishes, reduce hyperpigmentation, and keep your skin from sagging. To maintain a bright, even-toned, refreshed look, Dr. Lilly Parllaku recommends adding vitamin C to your skincare routine.
2. Plump Sagging Skin
3. Diminish Acne Scars
4. Treat Hyperpigmentation
5. Improve Hair Health & Volume
Who Can Receive Platelet-Rich Plasma Therapy?
How Long Does It Take to See Results?
The results of platelet-rich plasma therapy are long-lasting. While the healing process starts immediately, the average patient will see results within 3 weeks with effects lasting for up to 3 years. Results include:
● Reduction of fine lines and wrinkles
● Visibly smaller pores
● Improved scars
● Decrease in hyperpigmentation
● Improvement of hair quality and volume
What Procedures Can Platelet-Rich Plasma Be Combined With?
At Bryn Mawr Dermatology, we recommend combining platelet-rich plasma with CO2 Laser and microneedling with Rejuvapen, both of which create a perfect healing environment for disrupted skin cells and underlying structures. For the best results, we recommend Bryn Mawr Dermatology’s 24 Karat Gold Package:
Step 1: Receive a complete Botox treatment that improves the results of your CO2 laser treatment by keeping your skin relaxed during the healing process.
Step 2: Resurface your skin with a powerful fractionated CO2 laser to even out your skin tone and texture. We will make sure that your “trouble spots,” such as scars or lax skin under the eyes, are addressed.
Step 3: Harness your own body’s curative power by painting Platelet-Rich Plasma onto the freshly resurfaced skin. This amps up collagen and elastin growth while abbreviating the healing process.
Step 4: Take home a clinical skin care regimen that is personalized to your skin’s needs to maintain your fabulous results.
Step 5: Receive an annual membership to the BMD VIP Loyalty Program. This provides you with access to our entire repertoire of cosmetic services at major discounts.
Is Platelet-Rich Plasma Safe?
Platelet-Rich Plasma Post-Treatment Recovery
You will receive aftercare instructions on how to care for your new skin. Protection from UV exposure is of the utmost importance in order to protect it from forming undesirable pigmentation. Hydration is also essential. You will be provided with Clinical Skin Care recommendations that will help retain moisture and improve the skin barrier. The controlled damage that is an essential part of the treatment is manageable, but skin can appear red and irritated, it may develop pinpoint bleeding that resolves within the hour, and has the potential for some swelling and bruising. By the time you leave our office, any discomfort felt during the procedure will be significantly improved, although the treated area can continue to feel hot or tender for 24-48 hours. Each person responds differently to skin rejuvenation with PRP and we will be happy to discuss any questions you have at your consultation.
