Like a time machine for your skin, PRP facial rejuvenation can help you rediscover more youthful looking skin. This revolutionary treatment utilizes platelet rich plasma to promote your body’s natural healing response for tissue regeneration. An anti-aging treatment that provides lasting and natural looking results might sound too good to be true but, thankfully, it’s not. Learn more about PRP for facial rejuvenation.

What Is Platelet Rich Plasma?
Platelet rich plasma consists of blood plasma enriched with platelets. It contains a rich concentration of growth factors and proteins that can enable your skin to heal and regenerate. PRP is injected into the skin, but it isn’t a dermal filler. It is a bioactive stimulator because of its ability to stimulate the body’s collagen production for younger looking skin. Results will start to appear shortly after treatment and will continue to improve for many weeks and months. PRP injections are very safe and have been used since the 1980s to speed healing.
Where Do You Get the Plasma to Use in PRP Injections?
Platelet rich plasma utilizes your body’s own healing response to regenerate cells. We don’t use an artificial or synthetic solution but, rather, your own plasma. To obtain this plasma, Dr. Chang extracts a small amount of your own blood. This blood is placed in a centrifuge to extract the plasma and concentrate your platelets. This extracted concentration of plasma/platelets is then injected into the treatment area.
What Can PRP Do for Me?
Platelet rich plasma has many uses. Here at Beatitude Aesthetic Medicine we use PRP to:
- Improve Color, Tone, and Texture of the Skin
- Reduce Under Eye Dark Circles and Hollows
- Stimulate Collagen Production
- Rejuvenate the Skin
- Accelerate Healing to Reduce Downtime After Resurfacing Treatments
Ask Dr. Chang if platelet rich plasma is right for you. She can help you choose the best treatments for your aesthetic goals.
Will I Need to Miss Work After PRP Injections?
PRP injections are a great choice for busy men and women who are starting to see the signs of aging on their face, neck, or chest. This treatment requires no downtime and many patients return to work immediately after treatment. You may have some redness, swelling, soreness, and bruising in the treatment area, but this fades quickly (often within 3 days).
