Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a serum that is derived from your own blood that is rich in natural growth factors. The process used to collect your PRP concentrates these growth factors and is then used to amplify your body’s natural healing ability. By injecting these growth factors we stimulate the generation of reparative cells thus speeding and improving healing. This makes PRP an excellent and versatile, non-invasive method to rejuvenate damaged or aging skin, restore hair growth, jump-start sexual health, and much more.

Platelets in our bloodstream play a key role in healing. When the skin is damaged by an injury or other kind of trauma, these platelets spring into action by stopping the blood flow at the wound site.  Platelets (that are shaped like a plate) help protect the wound with a cohesive mesh. These surrounding platelets clot the blood and facilitate the healing process. These platelets contain cytokine molecules that communicate with a complex network of chemical signaling. Thus acting as a catalyst for the production of regenerative cells.  PRP has done wonders for the sports world as this therapy has helped countless athletes recover from an injury or accident. It has now found its way to Ant-Aging applications. PRP has been found to be an excellent non-invasive treatment for cosmetic rejuvenation. The PRP works with your body’s natural chemistry to bring forth smooth and sophisticated skin. PRP injections work to firm the whole treatment area by ramping up collagen production. This returns volume to your tissue and also reduces skin laxity giving you a younger refreshed look. To learn more about how PRP injections may be the solution for you, schedule a consultation with our office.

You’ll enter our calming treatment room on the day of your PRP therapy. We will make sure you are sitting comfortably throughout the entire process. To prepare for the injections, blood will be extracted and run through a centrifuge to create a concentration of platelets. The good thing about the procedure is that it uses your own blood cells to promote skin healing. They are then injected directly into your treatment area or tissue that is needed for rejuvenation.  When these platelets are isolated and injected into a specified area, they will activate the cell reparation process. It helps facilitate the production of new collagen. It helps repair sun damage, tightens the skin, and rejuvenates hair follicles. The entire process should take about 20 minutes to complete.
Recovery and Results
Patients may experience mild swelling at the injection site but should disappear within 3 days. Full results should show themselves in about 3-4 weeks and will continuously improve over time as collagen regrows.  For optimal results, Dr. Channell recommends people do 3 sessions, spaced a month apart.
