What is a PRP Anti-Aging Treatment?
PRP (platelet-rich plasma) anti-aging treatments are medical procedures that use a small amount of your own blood to help naturally stimulate your body’s own healing and rejuvenating processes.
After the blood is drawn, it’s placed in a centrifuge to separate the platelets from the rest of the blood components. The platelet-rich plasma is injected into the area to be treated. In the anti-aging treatments, the PRP is injected into the face where it targets age-related lines and wrinkles.
What Does a PRP Anti-Aging Treatment Cost in Santa Ana, CA?
The cost of PRP anti-aging treatments can vary from patient to patient, based in part on the complexity of the treatment and number of sessions needed.
During your initial consultation, a treatment plan will be created and the cost for your specific case is thoroughly evaluated and discussed. You can expect a more accurate cost assessment at that time.
Many cosmetic procedures are not covered by insurance, so you may want to check with your insurance provider to see what their policy is with regard to PRP anti-aging treatments. At Coast Regenerative Medicine, we’re pleased to offer financing options through CareCredit®.
How Does a PRP Anti-Aging Treatment Work?
When the platelet-rich plasma is removed from the centrifuge and drawn up into syringes, it’s then applied to the specific area or areas to be treated.
Each injection contains large amounts of growth factors, stem cells, and other elements that contribute to repair and restoration of healthy skin tissue.
The actual mechanisms that cause PRP to work the way it does are not entirely clear, but lab studies have repeatedly shown that the high concentration of growth factors in PRP injections play a significant role in speeding up the healing process and aiding in restoring and repair damaged tissue.
The PRP triggers new cells to be generated that help improve skin tone, texture and complexion, leaving your face rejuvenated with a younger looking, healthier glow.
What Are the Benefits of a PRP Anti-Aging Treatment?
There are many benefits to PRP anti-aging treatments and most patients are very pleased with their results. Some of the most common benefits include:
- Increased skin volume, tone, and texture
- Reduced appearance of facial lines and wrinkles
- 100% natural treatment, minimally invasive and non-surgical
- Reduced risk of allergy because your own blood platelets are used
- Very little or no downtime needed for recovery
Am I a Good Candidate for a PRP Anti-Aging Treatment?
If you’re a reasonably healthy adult, it’s likely you’re a good candidate for PRP anti-aging treatment. There are a few skin conditions, liver or blood disorders, and some medications that may affect the final decision to use PRP anti-aging treatment. The treatment is generally not recommended for pregnant women or patients with an active infection.
During your complimentary consultation, the doctor will help make sure you have realistic expectations about how PRP anti-aging treatment can benefit you.
You’ll also work together to decide whether or not PRP anti-aging treatment is your best option for giving you the results you have in mind. If not, alternative treatment options that may serve you better can be explored.
