PRP Therapy in Boston, MA
For those individuals who would like to experience the benefits of cosmetic surgery, but do not like the idea of introducing foreign substances into their bodies, Neem Medical Spa offers PRP therapy. PRP therapy is a groundbreaking new treatment that utilizes the body’s own natural healing process to refresh and enhance your appearance. Led by board-certified internal medicine physician, Dr. Rosy Sandhu, Neem Medical Spa, located in Somerville and Winchester and serving the Greater Boston area, specializes in PRP therapy.
What is PRP?
PRP, or platelet-rich plasma, is a non-surgical treatment that revitalizes your skin and other areas of the body by using the platelets in your own blood. The blood is spun in a centrifuge to separate the platelets into a rich gelatinous substance. This substance is combined with natural dermal fillers which are then injected into specific areas to be treated. PRP works to repair damaged skin, add fullness and volume to the skin, and reduce the appearance of lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin. PRP also encourages the mending of bones and soft tissue injuries.
Benefits of PRP
The use of your body’s own PRP to treat certain skin and scalp conditions provides multiple benefits, including:
- Non-invasive, non-surgical procedure
- Lowered risk of allergic reaction
- No side effects or recovery time
- More economical than surgery
- Simple, painless and quick procedure
What Can I Expect from PRP Therapy?
Treatment begins by drawing a small amount of blood from the patient. The blood is processed in a centrifuge to separate the platelets from the other particles, to form a gelatinous substance. The platelet-rich plasma that is collected is either injected or topically applied during treatment.
How Does PRP Therapy Differ from Other Types of Skin Treatments?
The most unique aspect of PRP therapy is its ability to promote the development of soft tissue. In addition to stimulating collagen production as other products do, PRP actually sustains and reinvigorates tissue, using nutrients from the patient’s own blood.
Recovery from PRP Therapy
There is no required downtime following treatment with PRP. Some patients choose to have other treatments performed in conjunction with PRP therapy. In these instances, patients should abide by the typical recovery period associated with the other procedure. Results may not be visible for three to four weeks, even though the platelets begin to nourish your skin immediately. In some cases, Dr. Sandhu may recommend additional treatments for optimal results.
What Will PRP Therapy Do for My Skin?
PRP treatments provide a wide range of benefits, such as:
- Reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, such as crow’s feet
- Improve skin texture, smoothness, elasticity, and volume
- Stimulate collagen production, enhancing facial contours
- Improve chronic conditions, such as acne and rosacea
- Reduce the appearance of dark under eye circles
Will Everyone Benefit from PRP Therapy?
PRP therapy is considered very safe because the treatment utilizes your own blood and plasma, thereby greatly reducing the risk of allergic reaction. Although anyone may be a candidate for this treatment, Dr. Sandhu’s recommendations for treatment will be based on your specific cosmetic goals. She may suggest an alternative or additional treatment if she thinks that PRP therapy will not provide the results you desire.
