PRP is a platelet-rich plasma found in your blood. It contains growth factors with special healing capabilities. Although PRP is often effective for pain relief and accelerated healing, it’s also a useful aesthetic treatment. Georgia Center for Female Health specialists use PRP for hair restoration and as anti-aging fillers.
You can achieve numerous anti-aging benefits by choosing PRP at Georgia Center for Female Health. Examples include:
PRP is a nonsurgical solution that’s fast and painless, without the downtime associated with invasive anti-aging treatments.
Prior to PRP treatment, your Georgia Center for Female Health specialist reviews your medical history, takes a look at your skin and hair, and discusses your desired outcome. They let you know if you’re a good candidate for PRP and tell you what to expect during treatment.
You may not be a good candidate for the procedure if you have skin cancer, skin diseases, platelet dysfunction syndromes, metabolic disorders, or chronic liver disease. PRP might not be for you if you have a history of heavy alcohol, drug, or tobacco use.
When you arrive at Georgia Center for Female Health for PRP treatment, your provider checks your vital signs. They take a sample of blood from your arm and process it in a centrifuge to isolate PRP from the rest of your blood.
Your aesthetic specialist can numb the treatment area to make PRP injections feel comfortable. They carefully inject PRP at targeted areas of your scalp or face. The procedure is fast and painless, but offers dramatic results.
After PRP injections you can resume normal everyday activities, as there’s no downtime associated with the procedure. You might notice some redness or swelling at the injection site, but these side effects are temporary.
Over the next few weeks and months, you should notice improvements in the condition of your skin and hair. Your Georgia Center for Female Health specialist often recommends a series of PRP treatments to help you achieve the best outcome.
Don’t live with signs of aging if you feel less than beautiful. Book a PRP consultation with Georgia Center for Female Health over the phone or online today.
