The Benefits of PRP in Cosmetic Surgery
The Benefits of PRP
An increasingly popular regenerative medicine used in cosmetic surgery today is platelet-rich plasma; also known as autologous conditioned plasma. Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a concentrate of platelet-rich plasma protein derived from a patient’s whole blood, centrifuged to remove red blood cells. We utilize it to accelerate the healing process from other procedures or on its own for rejuvenation. There are many benefits of PRP use; especially when combined with other cosmetic procedures.
At Face of Beverly Hills, Dr. McCoy Moretz is here to ensure your platelet-rich plasma treatment is comfortable and as effective as possible towards whatever cosmetic goal you might have. Dr. Mac uses PRP frequently for a variety of treatments and, as a regenerative medicine expert, welcomes you to learn more about the benefits of PRP and its applications.
How It Works
The Benefits of PRP are many. Platelet-rich plasma is strong in growth factors. These growth factors are what make it ideal as a regenerative medicine for everything from facial rejuvenation to treating the hair and other parts of the body.
Platelet-rich plasma can be combined with procedures such as Doctor Mac’s Cocktail Chemical Peel. It can improve the recovery process needed from the chemical peel.
In other cases, PRP can be used standalone for procedures such as Dracula Therapy. Additionally, PRP can be applied to the face in order to stimulate collagen and elastin production.
PRP is very safe to administer. Additionally, there’s a low risk of contamination and no chance of being rejected by the body. As such, the side effects from the actual application of the PRP are virtually non-existent.
The blood draw itself may sometimes result in mild side effects, including dizziness, mild nausea, and, in rare cases, passing out. Unless you have a condition that makes you unable to have blood drawn for the procedure, or unusually sensitive to the process, you should be a good candidate for the procedure.
Wondering if you can experience the benefits of PRP? First off, if you have health concerns, you should consult with your primary care doctor before contacting our office. As always, Doctor Mac is happy to review your options. If you’re a good candidate for procedures that utilize platelet-rich plasma, he’ll inform you during your consultation.
