For Your Skin Rejuvenation

New research demonstrates that PRP and PRF is effective in skin rejuvenation as platelets are rich in growth factors to generate new collagen which reduces facial wrinkles, softens and softens skin.  The treatment helps to repair and regenerate damaged skin and reverse the signs of aging.

How Does PRP Therapy Work?

Platelet Rich Plasma or Fibrin (PRP / PRF) is an all-natural anti-aging solution that can remedy the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles as well as improve skin texture, scalp health and encourage hair growth. PRP and PRF is created within a small sample of blood withdrawn from you at the time of your appointment.

When Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is applied topically to areas of the skin, it promotes your own collagen growth, regenerates tissue, and naturally soothes and tightens the skin. Studies document that PRP assists in new collagen formation  and new studies show that PRP can soften sun damage and other aging skin issues.

PRP for facial renewal is safe as the plasma is produced from your own blood so there is virtually no risk of an allergic reaction or rejection.

Prior to any treatment or procedure, Dr. Chernoff or one of our trained and certified Health Care Providers determine if you are a candidate, review the risk and benefits, and provide all possible treatment alternatives.

What Does PRP Facial Rejuvenation Treat?

PRP facial rejuvenation is clinically proven to:

  • Reduce facial wrinkles
  • Soften and smooth skin
  • Treat sun damage
  • Soften scars
  • Softens acne scars
  • Improve hair and scalp health and grow

PRP for facial rejuvenation and anti-aging is used most often as an “add on” treatment with Laser therapy such as DOT Laser and Microneedle RF treatments.  PRP treatments stimulates your body’s collagen to increase production for total skin rejuvenation.

How is PRP Applied?

Once your blood sample has been taken, it is inserted and spun in a centrifuge. Blood plasma, white and red blood cells, and other growth properties bond as the sample spins, creating the PRP formula. The PRP solution is purified and the platelets are preserved, creating PRP and PRF. PRP has been safely and effectively used topically for cosmetic treatments.

What Results Can You Expect?

PRF rejuvenation may be good for men and women who desire an all-natural, minimally invasive treatment to address the visible signs of aging and other skin conditions such, as scarring and acne scars. Dr. Chernoff and his professional staff will evaluate your medical history in order to determine if you may be a potential candidate for this revolutionary anti-aging treatment.

Since PRP comes from your own body the results vary for each person. Overall, patients can expect to see noticeable improvement in the tone, texture, and overall quality of their skin. Results begin to show 3-4 weeks after the treatment session and continue to improve with time. One to six treatment sessions are generally needed depending on your specific skin improvement goals.

Can PRP be Combined with Other Procedures?

PRP and PRF can be combined with a variety of treatments and procedure to enhance results. Many patients combine PRP with laser skin tightening and laser skin rejuvenation. Microneedling can be used to enhance the results by infusing the growth factors deep into the skin. This infusion process improves the overall quality, tightness, and texture of their skin. Patients can also improve the thickness and health of their hair with PRF injections.
