What Makes You A Good Candidate for PRP Treatment?

Featured Image

Do you want to tighten and firm skin on your face, and smooth out wrinkles? PRP or platelet-rich plasma treatment for the face is a nonsurgical skin care treatment offered at Beyond Beautiful Texas by our board-certified facial plastic surgeon, Dr. Vu Ho. Your blood is drawn and processed so that all proteins, platelets, and growth factors are separated and then injected into your face. The entire process takes about 15 minutes. PRP helps minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and stimulates collagen products for firmer skin. It also can tighten and tone the skin too. There are rarely side effects since PRP skin treatment uses your own blood.

Who is a candidate for PRP treatment in Plano?

During your consultation with Dr. Ho, he can determine if PRP therapy is right for you. The ideal candidate for PRP skin treatment in Plano, TX is someone:

  • Who has aging skin with lines or wrinkles

  • Who has skin they want to tighten and tone

  • Who has loose or sagging skin

  • Who has the desire to look more youthful

  • Who wants a nonsurgical way to rejuvenate their face

You must be in good health. You also must not smoke or drink alcohol as nicotine can increase blood pressure and lower platelet count. Also, if you drink, alcohol can diminish your ability to release stem cells, which won’t lead to optimal results. You also must not be taking corticosteroid injections for up to one month before and after treatment as it can cause complications. Most treatments, like PRP, are unsafe for women who are pregnant or breastfeeding, so Dr. Ho advises you to wait until you’re done with your family and/or done breastfeeding.

What happens during PRP treatment

There is an effective way to combat aging with treatments, such as PRP. At Beyond Beautiful Texas, we use Suneva® Medical HD PRP to streamline the process. It is the fastest and most successful treatment option for those looking for facial rejuvenation in and around Plano, TX. Our patients can return to their daily routine almost immediately after, as there is no aftercare. Most do not report any pain or discomfort either. PRP is great as a standalone treatment or as a combination of them to achieve your dream look.

Results from PRP

After your PRP treatment with Dr. Ho, you may have some redness, bruising, and mild swelling. This usually subsides within three days. Since PRP treatment uses your own blood, side effects are rare. You should see visible results for smaller pores, tighter skin, improved tone, and the reduced appearance of fine lines and wrinkles within three to four weeks after treatment. Your skin will continue to improve over time. For the best results, we recommend our patients at Beyond Beautiful Texas have three treatments spaced out in a one to two-month period. To enhance your results, we recommend adding microneedling to your rejuvenation process. This allows the PRP to reach deeper into your skin, which yields even greater results.
