PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) fillers are a safe and effective complement to traditional dermal fillers. Just as pharmaceutical dermal fillers, like Juvederm®, are used to smooth and contour your skin, PRP fillers can rejuvenate your skin for a natural, youthful appearance. Why use PRP fillers? As the name suggests, Platelet Rich Plasma from your own blood is used to repair damaged or wrinkled skin. Read on for more details about how the process actually works, and why you may choose PRP Fillers.
How Do PRP Fillers Work?
Platelets, components of the blood, are extracted from a sample of your own blood by a spinning centrifuge. Once this process is complete, platelet rich plasma from your blood sample is injected into the skin, filling pockets and wrinkles, and adding volume to sagging skin. Additionally, the cells then begin to repair your skin by stimulating collagen production and new tissue growth. The result is youthful and healthy looking skin.
Are There Side Effects?
Because PRP fillers are 100% natural and derived from your own body, they are safe and there is little to no chance of allergic reaction. Nonetheless, as with any injection, redness or swelling at the injection site may occur.
Are PRP Fillers Right For Me?
If you are interested in fillers that are safe, natural, non invasive, and produce subtle results that last, PRP Fillers may be for you. Contact Dr. Mirza to discuss using PRP Fillers at your next visit.
