Natural rejuvenation with platelet rich plasma therapy in Plano
The healing properties of PRP have been used in treatment of sports and orthopedic injuries for years. Now platelet rich plasma therapy is available in the Plano, Dallas, and Frisco area to safely and naturally rejuvenate skin. Noble Cosmetic Surgery – Patrick Obasi, M.D. is committed to bringing the latest advances in aesthetic medicine to patients in the greater Dallas area.
Blood is comprised mostly of liquid plasma, along with small amounts of solids – red and white blood cells, and platelets. These small cell fragments contain hundreds of proteins in a fibrin matrix. Their growth factors play a vital role in clotting, healing, and regeneration of new cells.
A rich store of PRP (up to 15 times normal concentration) is obtained when a small sample of your own blood is spun in a centrifuge to separate components.
Platelet rich plasma therapy
There is a growing trend toward natural, less invasive facial rejuvenation techniques. PRP is derived from your own blood, so there is minimal risk of rejection or allergic reaction.
PRP therapy can be used on the face, neck, and hands to improve:
- Crepey skin.
- Fine lines and wrinkles.
- Acne scarring.
- Stretch marks.
Dr. Obasi reintroduces harvested PRP into problem areas, or uses a microneedling technique to treat larger portions of skin. The procedure takes about 20 minutes. Improvement is noticeable in about three weeks as production of collagen and fresh skin cells is activated. Full improvement occurs in four to seven weeks, and lasts up to 18 months.
PRP therapy may be administered alone, or as part of a comprehensive anti-aging plan including Botox, fillers, and skin resurfacing. It also enhances the results of face lift and other cosmetic surgeries.
