What is PRP for Skin Rejuvenation?

Platelet-rich plasma treatment is an all-natural treatment because the product that is placed under your skin to restore a more youthful look, is derived from your blood. PRP is blood plasma that has a high concentration of platelets and stimulate stem cells that help to kickstart the body’s healing and regeneration process. This eliminates the risk of sensitivity and allergic reactions and creates an organic way to revitalize the face you show off to the world.


“I’ve been a patient of Dana’s for several years now, even following her when her practice locations changed.  Having seen a few different aesthetics providers, I can attest to both her professional skill and keen aesthetic eye.  Dana takes a great deal of time to understand my goals and designs specific treatment plans that will help me meet those goals.”

Who is a Candidate for PRP?

The rejuvenating properties of PRP treatment make it a great option for those who want to improve and even out their overall skin texture, address fine lines and wrinkles, plump up hollowed areas of the face, and smooth out both acne and surgical scars. PRP is also great for those looking for a long-lasting treatment, with minimal maintenance appointments. After the initial treatments to achieve the desired look, many patients only require annual touch-ups.

PRP is also great for individuals who are looking for an all-natural treatment. With PRP your own body is doing the work to make you feel brighter and more youthful.

When deciding to undergo treatment for PRP, it is good to keep in mind that other treatments, such as Morpheus8 Microneedling with RF (Radiofrequency), can be done in conjunction with PRP.

What is PRP Treatment Like?

The process of PRP treatment to rejuvenate the skin is very similar to the process of PRP for filler. A nurse practitioner will take a small vial of blood, then place it in a centrifuge where a high concentration of platelets and plasma is isolated. This concentration is then injected under the skin using a fine-gauge needle by an experienced provider such as Dana Protomastro.

Recovery From PRP

Platelet-rich plasma for skin rejuvenation is a minimally invasive procedure that requires little to no downtime. Some redness, swelling, or bruising may occur but should subside in a few hours. Most patients can return to their normal activities 1-3 days later, if not immediately after treatment.

How Long Do Results Last?

After completing the number of treatments required to meet your desired look, the results of PRP Rejuvenation are quite long-lasting. Most clients only require one annual visit to maintain results and continue enjoying their enhanced new skin.
