PRP Therapy in Fort Worth
The way to younger, healthier-looking skin is in your blood.
Achieving beautiful skin has never been easier—you can thank science for many of the treatments we have to reduce flaws, repair skin damage, and restore a smoother, more youthful complexion. But we have nature to thank for one powerful skin rejuvenation tool: platelet-rich plasma, or PRP.
Now available at Kalos, the Medical Spa at Kirby Plastic Surgery, platelet-rich plasma therapy uses components of your own blood to deliver key proteins and growth factors to your skin, helping your body repair damage from sun and aging and produce new, healthy skin cells at a much faster rate. In aesthetic medicine, PRP therapy has proven to be especially useful for improving age-related imperfections, helping to fade acne scars, and even treating early stages of hair loss.
PRP treatments performed by our experienced board certified physician assistants can make a world of difference in how your skin looks, feels, and heals! This all-natural skin rejuvenation treatment can achieve significant improvements on its own, or help speed onset of results from other skincare treatments.
What is platelet-rich plasma?
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is prepared from a small sample of your own blood, taken from your arm. This blood is placed into a centrifuge to separate out the red and white blood cells, leaving a highly concentrated fluid containing only platelets and plasma. Both play an essential role in your body’s natural healing process. Platelets, which are small, disc-shaped cells, contain high levels of growth factors that your body uses to repair damage and regenerate new, healthy cells. Plasma also contains key nutrients that encourage healthy cell growth.
When injected directly into the skin, scalp, or other areas affected by sun damage, scars, or aging, PRP sets cellular regeneration in motion, helping to reduce visible flaws and improve age-related issues such as hair loss and collagen loss.
What can PRP therapy do for me?
Platelet-rich plasma can help boost cell growth and cell renewal just about anywhere on the face, skin, hands, and body. By applying PRP during a SkinPen microneedling treatment (like the “vampire” facial treatments you may have seen) or injecting PRP directly into the skin, we can help you target skin flaws and accelerate the results of your overall skincare plan. Just a few ways PRP can help you look younger naturally:
- Minimize fine lines and wrinkles
- Reduce the appearance of acne scars
- Promote healthy hair growth and slow early hair loss
- Improve circulation to speed healing after resurfacing treatments
- Enhance results of microneedling treatments
- Improve skin tone and texture
PRP + SkinPen: a “Perfect 10” treatment for youthful skin
Some of the best skincare treatments work even better when paired with the perfect partner. PRP is especially useful when paired with SkinPen microneedling treatments. The SkinPen creates microscopic openings in the skin, which triggers healing and helps your skin renew itself. PRP feeds healing skin, helping it come back smoother, stronger, and healthier. Adding PRP to a SkinPen treatment allows your skin to maximize the benefits of both: your skin receives an extra flood of growth factors right when it needs them most!
What’s the difference between PRP therapy and a “vampire” facial?
The “vampire facial” treatment is simply one PRP therapy option—specifically PRP paired with microdermabrasion or microneedling—which has been assigned a catchy name by some doctors and celebrities. Indeed, PRP + microneedling is a very popular and effective skin rejuvenation treatment option and one that our Fort Worth patients love. However, PRP therapy can be used for much more than just facials (vampire or otherwise). At Kalos, we can use PRP to improve scars, promote hair growth, and help aging skin rebuild collagen from head to toe.
