PRP Q & A

What is platelet-rich plasma therapy?

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy uses your own blood platelets to restore and enhance soft tissue health and function. PRP treatments at Hermosa Cosmetic Center can rejuvenate your skin, address hair loss, and improve sexual wellness.

When your skilled provider at Hermosa Cosmetic Center performs PRP therapy, they draw some of your blood and spin it in a centrifuge to separate out the platelets and plasma from other blood components. They re-inject the PRP serum into the target area to replenish and rejuvenate your skin and other tissues. 

What are the benefits of PRP therapy?

Because PRP comes from your own body, there is little risk of allergy or rejection of the treatment. It offers impressive results for facial rejuvenation, improving concerns such as:

  • Wrinkles
  • Fine lines
  • Under-eye circles
  • Sagging skin
  • Dull skin
  • Sun damage
  • Dark spots
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Acne and acne scarring

In addition, PRP treatments can address hair loss in men and women. And PRP can improve the sexual response in men and women who suffer from age-related sexual dysfunction.

What should I expect from a PRP procedure?

Your experienced provider performs PRP therapy using FDA-approved, sterile equipment. They begin by drawing a small amount of blood from your arm and placing it in the centrifuge for 8-10 minutes. Depending on the target area, your provider may apply a topical numbing gel to your skin while your blood is being processed.

When your PRP serum is ready, your provider carefully re-injects it into the target area using a fine needle. You might have some mild swelling, redness, or soreness around the injection site. This typically subsides within 24-48 hours.

When will I see results?

You should start to see an improvement in four to six weeks, depending on the treated area and other individual factors. Typically, full results become visible within three months of your PRP treatment. Your provider may recommend a series of treatments to achieve optimal results.

To find out how PRP therapy can revitalize and brighten your skin, restore thinning hair, or improve your confidence in your intimate relationships, schedule a consultation with a trusted provider at Hermosa Cosmetic Center. Call the office today to make an appointment or book online.
