Many people seek ways to address signs of aging in their skin, but often they find lasers or injectable serums may seem harsh and foreign. Now there is a way to restore a youthful glow using the healing power of your own body. With platelet-rich plasma (PRP) treatment, you can take the healing, cell-growth stimulating, regenerative properties in your blood in a concentrated form, and utilize these positive attributes to improve wrinkles, skin tone, and more.
Bringing our patients the most technologically advanced and effective methods available is part of our mission at Kerolus Facial Plastic Surgery in Atlanta, GA. One of those advanced methods is PRP Treatments, a procedure we commonly perform to the great satisfaction of our patients. Dr. Julia Kerolus and her staff are skilled injectors with the training and experience needed to offer PRP therapy safely and with great results.
Improve texture and appearance
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a technology that uses a patient’s own blood to extract plasma with a high concentration of platelets. These platelets contain growth factors that can stimulate cell growth, collagen production, and tissue regeneration. In aesthetics, the treatment involves the injection of PRP into the skin to rejuvenate it, improve its texture and appearance, and reduce the signs of aging. The procedure involves drawing a small amount of blood which is then placed in a centrifuge to separate the plasma and platelets from the other components of the blood. The resulting PRP is then injected into the areas of the skin that need rejuvenation or enhancement.
To restore and revitalize the skin, PRP Treatments can help promote collagen production and elasticity along with tissue repair and cell regeneration. PRP treatment can effectively be used on the face, neck, hands, and other areas of the body. The many benefits of this sought-after method include:
PRP Treatments are an incredible treatment for individuals with skin concerns such as fine lines, wrinkles, or acne scars who wish to undergo a non-surgical procedure with minimal downtime. Certain health conditions and factors may make this method unsuitable for some individuals.
A PRP consultation is an important part of the treatment process. We want to ensure the safety, effectiveness, and fulfillment of each patient’s specific requirements. A consultation with our team involves an examination of your skin, a review of the potential benefits or risks of the treatment, and a discussion of any possible alternatives. To prepare for the PRP treatment Atlanta patients are generally advised to abstain from taking anti-inflammatory or blood-thinning medications and to increase their water intake to make the blood draw easier.
Personal care and unmatched results are our primary goals at Kerolus Facial Plastic Surgery. Atlanta PRP Treatment provider, Dr. Julia Kerolus, is committed to ongoing education and research in her field, which brings a stunning level of excellence to her work. As a skilled facial plastic surgeon, she understands detailed facial anatomy and thus is highly precise and particular when providing treatments. The team at Kerolus is excited to offer each patient quality care and stellar aesthetic outcomes.
Generally, PRP injections are minimally painful, but many patients opt to use a topical numbing cream to ease discomfort at the injection site.
Since platelet-rich plasma is derived from the patient’s own blood, there are very few risks, and this treatment is very safe.
Although PRP Treatment results are not permanent, they are long-lasting, with most patient’s enjoying results for 18 to 24 months on average.
The typical cost of PRP Treatments ranges from $500 to $2,000. This will vary based on patient needs and goals.
Taking care of yourself is about more than just annual check-ups and eating right. You also want to preserve your ability to look and feel your best. If you feel like you have an area that you want to improve through plastic surgery, schedule a consultation with Dr. Kerolus. She will make sure you find the right treatment for your best results.
