Do you have fine lines or wrinkles or hollow areas that need filler but don’t want to have traditional filler, however safe it is? Then with PRP Injections Los Angeles patients may have their answer. Platelet-rich plasma, also known as the body’s own natural filler, uses your body’s own stem cells, or platelets, to create a volume in otherwise problem areas. Contact West Empire Aesthetics for a consultation today and start on your journey to a more natural looking you.
Fountain of Youth
Platelet-rich plasma injections have been called nature’s fountain of youth because of the healing and cosmetic properties the platelets contain. In the PRP Injection procedure, a vial of blood is taken from your arm and spun in a centrifuge until the blood is separated into different layers, one layer being platelet-rich plasma. This layer is removed and injected into areas of your skin/face areas that need more volume. Our Los Angeles PRP Injections treatment also activate the body’s own natural healing properties and stimulate collagen and elastin production in the skin.
Some people are sensitive to the ingredients in other types of filler, so PRP injections are a perfect way to avoid any possible reactions. Because we are using your blood and platelets, there is very little risk of having adverse reactions to the injections. PRP Injections can help plump sagging skin, mitigate acne scars, improve moisture retention, reduce fine lines and wrinkles, stimulate collagen production, and treat hyperpigmentation. PRP Injections are also used to treat hair loss. If you are bothered by thinning hair, PRP treatment is an excellent way to renew hair follicles and regrow hair naturally.
Amazing Natural Skin
Your consultation is a great time to ask any questions we don’t cover in our discussion with you regarding the benefits of PRP Injections. As with any procedure, it is important that you make us aware of any medical issues you may have, especially any issues dealing with the circulatory system or blood diseases. It is important that about five days before your procedure, you discontinue taking any anti-inflammatory medications or blood thinning medications. One month before your procedure, discontinue taking any steroids, as this can adversely affect the platelets.
Procedure & Applications
PRP injections take approximately one hour to complete. Blood will be drawn from your arm and placed in a vial(s), and spun in a centrifuge where the blood is separated into layers. One layer is the platelet-rich plasma which is then extracted and inserted into the skin using super fine needles. There is mild stinging, but this can be alleviated with a topical anesthetic. The body then absorbs and fully utilizes the platelet-rich plasma cells, creating a more beautiful, smoother face. In the PRP Injections procedure for hair restoration, the injections are made directly into the scalp using the same super-fine needles.
Because platelets naturally stimulate collagen production, Platelet-rich plasma injections are an excellent way to promote collagen and elastin in the skin. It takes approximately three months for maximum collagen production to be evident in the treated areas. It is recommended that you have two to three treatments in six to eight-week intervals for best results. Once this treatment sequence is completed, most patients can go a year or longer before having “touch-up” treatments. Clients who have PRP Injections for hair loss can expect to see somewhat thicker hair in two to four weeks, but the best results come with continued injections, and it can typically take three to six months for full results to appear.
Safe and Effective Beauty
Platelet-rich plasma injections are some of the safest and most effective ways to treat fine lines, wrinkles, and a myriad of other concerns. Platelet-rich plasma is a natural substance sourced from your own body, so there should be very little chance of rejection or infection after treatment. You may have bruising and swelling, but this can be alleviated by applying ice packs until any minor swelling goes down. This usually resolves in three to seven days. Do not smoke or consume alcohol for three to five days after your procedure.
After PRP Injections for your hair, you should not use hair products for at least six hours. You may take a hot shower and wash your hair that night, but avoid saunas, tanning, and steam rooms for two days after your treatment. Also, avoid alcohol, smoking, and caffeine for three days after treatment.
Most people choose to have PRP Injections on the face, but it can also be used to treat other areas of the body.
No, pregnant patients should wait until after they deliver to receive PRP Injections.
