How Does PRP Help Fine Lines & Wrinkles?

Over-the-counter creams and serums promise to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, and while they may work to a degree, your body has something better. Platelet-Rich Plasma, or PRP, is one of the most effective ways of combating these first signs of aging. PRP stimulates cell regeneration, collagen, and elastin production for longer term, more youthful-looking results. Let RenewMe Medspa unleash the power of your body’s own aging resistance with PRP treatments, through the wildly popular “Vampire Facial”.

How does PRP Work?

While PRP is great for hair restoration, it’s also incredible for improving fine lines and wrinkles. How? Platelets. When you suffer small injuries to your skin, platelets clot to stop any bleeding and release growth factors to signal tissue regeneration, including increased collagen and hyaluronic acid production. Collagen adds support to new skin and hyaluronic acid nourishes and hydrates, while at the same time, the growth factors stimulate skin cells to divide, creating new, younger, healed skin. These growth factors also improve circulation and remove damaged skin cells.

The PRP treatment process begins with a withdrawal of blood, which is then spun in a centrifuge to separate out the platelet-rich plasma from red and white blood cells. At this stage, plasma contains a higher concentration of tissue rejuvenating platelets. The PRP is then injected near fine lines and wrinkles. This isn’t a cover-up procedure designed to temporarily hide skin imperfections. The skin is genuinely rejuvenated by the platelets’ healing process, and new skin is formed to replace wrinkled, dried skin damaged by time, the sun, and other factors.

Treatment & Results

There are two ways PRP can be applied to your skin to fight fine lines and wrinkles. Our providers can directly inject the PRP into the dermis where your wrinkles reside. Over time, your wrinkles will fill in with new skin tissues. The other method is applying PRP during and after microneedling treatment. These micro-injuries will not only have the benefit of newly healing skin stimulated by the microneedling pen itself, but the addition of PRP boosts the healing process, stimulation of growth cells, and collagen.

Microneedling with PRP is often done for larger areas, such as the décolletage or arms as well. Typically, numbing cream is applied to your treatment area for each of these methods to make patients as comfortable as possible. On average, 3-6 treatments over a 2-3 month period are recommended. RenewMe Medspa’s beautiful, vibrant atmosphere is the perfect place to refresh tired, sallow, or dry and wrinkled skin. Renew your mind and rejuvenate your body with PRP treatments for a better, smoother, younger complexion. You definitely deserve it.
