PRP Therapy in Boston, MA
Certain types of cosmetic surgery aren’t for everyone – some patients simply prefer to keep synthetic materials out of their bodies. PRP therapy may be a perfect solution to offer the results you want without going under the knife. PRP therapy, offered by Neem Medical Spa, takes advantage of the body’s natural healing process to deliver a refreshed appearance. Board-certified internal medicine physician Dr. Rosy Sandhu performs PRP therapy and leads the Neem Medical Spa team, serving patients in Somerville, Winchester, and the Greater Boston area.
WHAT IS PRP?
PRP is short for platelet-rich plasma. This procedure is a nonsurgical option that utilizes the patient’s own platelets to rejuvenate skin across the face and body. Platelets are extracted from the patient’s blood using a centrifuge, leaving a gelatinous, rich substance used for the procedure. The platelet-rich plasma is combined with all-natural fillers and the substance is injected into the targeted treatment area(s). PRP therapy repairs skin damage, boosts skin volume, creates the appearance of fullness, and minimizes the look of sagging skin, wrinkles, and fine lines. The treatment is also valuable in promoting bone and soft tissue healing.
BENEFITS OF PRP
Using your own platelet-rich plasma to treat problem areas of the skin as well as scalp conditions offers distinct benefits, such as:
- Non-surgical and non-invasive
- Less likelihood for an allergic reaction
- No recovery time
- No side effects
- Lower cost versus surgery
- Procedure is quick and pain-free
WHAT CAN I EXPECT FROM PRP THERAPY?
The first step of PRP therapy involves extracting a minimal amount of your blood. Your own blood is used to collect platelets for the procedure – it is spun through a centrifuge that separates particles, leaving the platelets ready for treatment. The platelet-rich plasma forms a gelatinous substance, which is applied topically or injected to perform the treatment.
HOW DOES PRP THERAPY DIFFER FROM OTHER TYPES OF SKIN TREATMENTS?
PRP therapy is a unique method used to rejuvenate the skin, encouraging soft tissue development. Collagen production is stimulated by certain beauty products, but PRP therapy offers a distinct advantage – nutrients drawn from your own blood are used to reinvigorate the tissue, producing sustainable results.
RECOVERY FROM PRP THERAPY
A great benefit of PRP therapy is that no downtime is necessary after your treatment. If other treatments are performed along with PRP therapy, a recovery period may apply – you should always follow the prescribed recovery period for a procedure to encourage healing and optimal results.
Following PRP therapy, you may not notice visible results until three to four weeks later. However, the platelets go to work nourishing the skin and tissues right away. Additional PRP therapy treatments may be recommended by Dr. Sandhu to produce optimal results.
WHAT WILL PRP THERAPY DO FOR MY SKIN?
PRP treatments deliver unmatched results for patients, such as:
- Minimizing the look of wrinkles and fine lines, including crow’s feet surrounding the eyes
- Enhanced skin elasticity, smoothed texture, and boosted volume
- Facial contours are enhanced through natural collagen stimulation
- Rosacea and acne can be improved
- Minimizes undereye darkness and bags
WILL EVERYONE BENEFIT FROM PRP THERAPY?
PRP therapy utilizes the patient’s own platelets rather than foreign substances – because of this, the likelihood of allergic reactions is greatly minimized. Dr. Sandhu will evaluate your skin and your cosmetic goals in order to determine if PRP therapy is right for you. Dr. Sandhu may recommend an alternative treatment, or additional treatments that would best help you meet your goals if PRP therapy alone is not appropriate.
