What is a PRP Treatment?

PRP is a cutting-edge cosmetic procedure that harnesses the body’s natural healing abilities to rejuvenate the skin. During a PRP treatment, a small amount of blood is drawn from the patient and processed to isolate the platelet-rich plasma. This concentrated plasma, rich in growth factors and other healing properties, is then injected back into the skin or applied topically to stimulate collagen production, improve skin texture, and promote overall skin rejuvenation.

What are the Benefits of a PRP Treatment?

There are several advantages to PRP treatments. Our patients who have received PRP in the Los Angeles and Arcadia area, have reported some of the following benefits:

  • Stimulates collagen production for improved skin texture and elasticity
  • Reduces the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and scars
  • Promotes cell regeneration and repair
  • Evens out skin tone and minimizes pores
  • Enhances overall skin radiance for a youthful glow
  • Uses the body’s healing factors, making it safe 
  • Requires little to no downtime for quick recovery
  • Treatment can be customized to address specific skin concerns and areas of the body

PRP Treatments First Step

What’s The First Step?

The first step in getting a PRP Treatment is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Yu at Premier Cosmetic Surgery & Medspa. During this initial appointment, you will have the opportunity to discuss all your goals as we will evaluate your skin condition and determine if PRP Treatment is suitable for you. Dr. Yu will discuss your medical history and answer any questions you have. It is very important to be open and honest during your consultation as it will help prevent any unnecessary risks. 

If you would like to go forward with the treatment after your consultation, your treatment plan will be created and our Patient Coordinator will be able to help you schedule your first treatment.

What to Expect on the Day of a PRP Treatment

When you come into Premier Cosmetic Surgery & Medspa, Dr. Arthur Yu and our dedicated team of providers will offer a warm welcome to your bright new future. Your skin will be thoroughly cleansed, and any makeup or skincare products will be removed to ensure optimal absorption of the PRP solution. In some cases, we may use a numbing cream or local anesthesia to alleviate any pain. 

A small amount of blood will be drawn from your arm, similar to a routine blood test. This blood sample will then be processed to isolate the platelet-rich plasma. The blood sample will be centrifuged to separate the platelets from the rest of the blood components. 

The concentrated PRP solution, rich in growth factors and healing properties, will then be extracted and prepared for application in your target areas, carefully applied using a fine needle or micro-needling device. 

After the PRP Treatment, our team of providers will offer personalized post-treatment instructions right away, to ensure the best path to healing and visible results.

PRP Treatment Recovery

Following the procedure, it’s common to experience some mild redness, swelling, or bruising at the injection sites, which usually subsides within a few days. We ask that you avoid direct sun exposure, refrain from strenuous activities, and follow a gentle skincare routine. By adhering to these guidelines, patients can enjoy a smooth recovery and achieve the desired rejuvenating effects of PRP Treatment.
