PRP Injections in Chicago
Dermal fillers and Botox, Dysport or Xeomin are non-invasive cosmetic injectables that offer quick and convenient facial rejuvenation. Household brands like BOTOX or DYSPORT offer our patients safe, time-tested treatments with outstanding, natural looking results. But if there was an alternative option that offers equally attractive benefits with a more natural bent, let Trio Med Spa introduce you to PRP injections.
PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) is a cosmetic injectable treatment that employs the body’s ability to heal itself. The plasma component contains your body’s own, natural stem cells and growth-rich platelets. When injected into your skin, it accelerates your body’s collagen and elastin production to provide overall skin rejuvenation.
What is Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)
PRP is an innovative, organic stem-cell therapy that uses your body’s own plasma to enhance collagen production and stimulate natural healing, renewal, and cellular growth. PRP is natural, safe, with no risk of allergic reactions. In addition, because PRP is taken from the patient’s natural blood, the acceptance rate is high, as is patient satisfaction.
What Are PRP Injections?
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is a revolutionary approach in regenerative medicine that has recently gained increased attention in the cosmetic and plastic surgery fields.
PRP has been used in the aesthetic medical field to boost facial rejuvenation, volume, and radiance.
What to Expect From PRP Injections
If you have PRP to resolve aging skin, here’s what you can expect:
- Blood drawn: We remove a small amount of blood (2 to 4 tablespoons) from your arm.
- Specialized centrifuge: We then insert the test tube containing your blood in a centrifuge, which spins and separates your blood into layers. One of these layers has a high concentration of platelets.
- Injections: One of our advanced Nurse Practitioners will inject this “liquid gold” PRP solution into a designated treatment site to allow PRP healing powers to take effect.
- The entire procedure takes approximately forty-five minutes to an hour.
- Results appear within a few weeks.
What Can PRP Injections Be Used For?
Trio Med Spa uses PRP for multiple cosmetic improvements. It can serve as an injectable, much like dermal fillers, and most commonly addresses the delicate under-eye area. It is outstanding in correcting dark circles and undereye voids. Other uses include:
- Skin texture and tone enhancement
- Reduction in wrinkles and fine lines
- Skin tightening
It is most commonly used in conjunction with Microneedling because of its fantastic ability to act synergistically with growth factors induced by the treatment and heighten the wound-healing response. In addition, placing PRP back into the skin significantly increases collagen and elastin production. As a result, the skin will appear tighter, smoother, with more volume.
PRP is an aesthetic tool aestheticians, nurse injectors and plastic surgeons use for various facial corrections. PRP is not meant to replace aesthetic procedures but to enhance benefits, improve outcomes, and accelerate healing.
How is PRP Different From Dermal Fillers?
The under-eye area is the most delicate skin of your face. Here the skin is thinner, more sensitive, and more vulnerable to the consequences of aging. In addition, under-eye hollows can give your face a worn, aged appearance. For this reason, many men and women seek cosmetic treatments to revitalize the under-eye area.
Dermal fillers and PRP are injectable treatments designed to rejuvenate your facial skin. Dermal fillers plump skin by employing hyaluronic acid, a natural sugar that attracts moisture. PRP utilizes human growth factors derived from your blood, triggering your skin’s natural repair process. While fillers are popular for many seeking facial rejuvenation, PRP is quickly becoming our preferred option for the delicate eye area.
PRP with Microneedling
Microneedling and PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) when combined, can effectively stimulate collagen production, improve skin texture and tone, and promote overall skin rejuvenation. Traditional microneedling is fantastic at stimulating collagen production. The addition of PRP to the treatment takes it to another level.
Benefits from Microneedling with PRP
People may consider having microneedling with PRP to resolve marks or blemishes on the face or body, effectively treating the following:
- surgical scars
- acne scars
- wrinkles and fine lines
- large pores
- uneven skin texture
PRP treatment is an excellent choice for giving the under-eye area a smooth, youthful, and rested look. Schedule an appointment at Trio Med Spa today to learn more about this treatment option.
