Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) in Houston, TX
Dr. Joseph Perlman offers platelet rich plasma (PRP) skin rejuvenation to patients throughout Spring, Houston, The Woodlands, Atascocita, Conroe, Pasadena, Baytown, and the surrounding areas.
The Advanced Plastic Surgery Centre is pleased to offer one of the latest techniques for facial rejuvenation. Platelet rich plasma enriched treatments allow the use of one’s own cells to enhance the skin by releasing a number of proteins that accelerate healing, stimulate collagen growth, rejuvenate skin, and restore hair to a much healthier state.
What Is Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP)?
If you’re yearning for a more rejuvenated, youthful complexion, but you’re hesitant to inject any foreign substances into your face, platelet rich plasma therapy may be for you. Using the patient’s own blood to enhance the results of laser resurfacing and facelifts as a separate office procedure, PRP is a cutting-edge technique that will maximize your skin’s natural healing power as well as stimulate collagen growth, and maximize potential for hair restoration.
Previously used to increase the survival of fat grafts on patients undergoing Brazilian butt lifts, breast reconstruction, and cosmetic breast revision surgeries, Dr. Perlman now uses platelet-rich plasma as an injectable filler, effectively treating deep lines on the face. PRP can also be used for hair restoration in men and women. For more information about this revolutionary technique or to learn more about average PRP prices, set up your one-on-one consultation today.
Am I a Good Candidate for Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP)?
Because it’s derived from the patient’s own blood, platelet-rich plasma skin rejuvenation is completely hypoallergenic, leaving little to no risk of side effects. You may be a good candidate for PRP skin rejuvenation if you are unhappy with any of the following:
- Fine wrinkles around the eyes
- Nasolabial grooves
- Wrinkles on the lips
- Acne marks
- Wrinkles on the forehead
- Wrinkles on the neck
- Bags and dark circles under the eyes
- Loose, saggy skin
You should discuss any concerns you may have during your initial consultation with your surgeon.
What Is the Process for Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP)?
The platelet-rich plasma skin rejuvenation technique begins by using the patient’s own blood. The doctor will take a one-ounce sample of blood and, using a centrifuge, will separate the red blood cells from the serum containing concentrated platelets. These concentrated platelets are then applied through the skin using the micro needle system, which increases the absorption of the PRP, as well as other products, up to 1,000 times better than rubbing them on the skin.
We also inject platelet-rich plasma intradermally, as a filler, to treat fine wrinkles around the eyes, nose, mouth, lips, neck, and more. Patients experience minimal discomfort and the effects can last up to a year.
Can I See Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Before and After Photos?
We always advise our patients in Spring, Houston, The Woodlands, and elsewhere around Texas to browse some platelet-rich plasma skin rejuvenation before and after pictures before deciding on the treatment. You’ll notice very natural results from the procedure as the effects occur gradually after about two weeks.
Results have been quite remarkable, and we feel that this is another option that we can offer our patients to help them look their best. If you’re interested in learning more about PRP, contact the office to schedule an appointment with Dr. Perlman.
