Skin rejuvenation is one of the most popular treatments among the aging population. As people grow older, they notice the development of various signs of aging, such as fine lines and wrinkles. These signs appear as early as the late twenties.
The primary cause of these changes is the weakening of a person’s skin as they grow older. Over the years, the skin loses its elasticity and tone because not enough elastin and collagen is being produced. This causes the skin to sag, form wrinkles, and become puffy. These can make a person appear tired all the time and add years to their looks. Fortunately, there are many innovative techniques that help people combat the signs of aging.
PRP Treatment in The Woodlands – The Future Looks Younger Than Ever
Of the many anti-aging treatments available on the market, PRP (platelet-rich plasma) therapy is the most sought after. This non-surgical procedure may be your ideal treatment for skin and facial rejuvenation in The Woodlands. It involves using blood platelets from the patient to help stimulate the growth of new cells, improve complexion and texture, and restore any lost volume in the face.
When centrifuged, human blood separates into four components: plasma, platelets, red blood cells, and white blood cells. During PRP treatment, a small amount of blood is taken from the patient and centrifuged for about 10 minutes. The separated plasma and platelets are extracted and re-injected into the patient’s skin, where they help stimulate the production of new cells and collagen. Since the components of PRP treatment are taken from the patient’s body, there are no chances of rejection or allergies.
How Is PRP Therapy Better Than Other Fillers or Injections?
There are various skin rejuvenation techniques available. Some of these include the use of fillers made of hyaluronic acid, which fill the folds and lines in the skin. These fillers also improve skin volume and are used to make lips plumper.
PRP therapy involves using the patient’s own plasma and platelets, which stimulate the production of collagen in the skin. The collagen is the ideal factor to rejuvenate your face and reduce wrinkles and fine lines. It improves skin volume and brightens your entire face. Overall volume, skin tone, and fullness are improved with PRP treatment.
What Are the Results of PRP Treatment?
After undergoing PRP treatment, most people experience some amount of swelling around the areas where the injections were administered. The most immediate change noticeable is an improvement in the elasticity and turgor of the skin. Collagen production is typically noticeable after about three months of the treatment. Once collagen production has started, the skin becomes softer and smoother and there is an improvement in facial volume. The patient’s face appears brighter, and a more youthful appearance takes over.
PRP treatment has an organic nature, which makes it the best option for patients looking to rejuvenate their looks in the Houston area.
