PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma)

A procedure that has been used successfully for years to heal sports injuries is now becoming the treatment of choice by women to improve the appearance of wrinkles, scars, sun damage, and even dark circles under their eyes.

The treatment, Platelet-Rich Plasma, is gaining in popularity for the same reasons athletes chose it: because of its organic nature and because it works. It uses plasma from the patient’s blood instead of chemicals injected into the body. The possibility of side effects is practically nonexistent because the body is unlikely to reject its blood.

During your visit, your blood will be drawn and then spun in a specialized centrifuge designed to extract your platelets – those growth factor powerhouses!

The extracted serum is then micro-needled into your area of concern!  Typical areas include the face, neck, upper chest and back of hands.  Down time is minimal – no sun or makeup for 24 yours.  Your skin will likely look like a mild sunburn for 12 hours.

PRP can also be injected just like a filler – if you are looking for a 100% natural way to fill under-eyes, lip lines and other moderate to fine wrinkles – PRP is the answer for you.  Dr. Wohlfeil will gladly give you a free consultation to discuss your best option!

Do You Show These 3 Signs of Aging?

1. Skin color becomes grayer because of less blood flow.

2. Facial Shape becomes collapsed and droopy as muscle and collagen decrease.

3. Skin texture becomes less smooth. As a result, the person looks “worn,” “tired,” or “droopy.”  The lively, rosy hue (seen plainly in playing children of every skin color and in young adults) fades to a dull gray.
