PRP Rejuvenation Q & A

What is PRP rejuvenation?

PRP rejuvenation at Island Medical Laser uses injections of your own blood to stimulate new cell growth and reduce signs of aging without pain or downtime. PRP and platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) are holistic, natural ways to achieve beautiful, younger-looking skin or a thicker head of hair.

What are the benefits of PRP rejuvenation?

Some of the many benefits you can experience with PRP rejuvenation at Island Medical Laser include:

  • Revitalized skin
  • Fewer lines
  • Fewer wrinkles
  • Tighter skin
  • Brighter skin
  • Healthier-looking skin
  • Thicker hair
  • Self-confidence

RPP and PRF are simple, fast, painless procedures that produce dramatic anti aging results without surgery or invasive procedures.

Is PRP rejuvenation right for me?

To find out if you’re a candidate for PRP rejuvenation, Dr. Wertheim discusses your medical history and desired outcome. He examines your skin or scalp in areas of concern, before personalizing an aesthetic treatment that matches your needs. He may combine PRP injections with additional procedures to maximize anti aging outcomes.

What happens during PRP procedures?

During PRP or PRF treatment, Dr. Wertheim takes a sample of blood from a vein in your arm. He spins it in a centrifuge to isolate platelets from the rest of your blood. He then injects the platelet-rich blood into areas just beneath your skin or scalp. He can numb the treatment area first to make it feel more comfortable. Each injection often takes just a few minutes to complete.

What should I expect after PRP rejuvenation?

After PRP rejuvenation procedures, treated areas may be red, swollen, or tender, but these side effects are temporary. You can ice the area if needed to maximize comfort and reduce swelling. Dr. Wertheim often recommends a series of PRP injections spaced apart over time to achieve the best results possible.

Over time as skin cells regenerate you can expect smoother, tighter, younger-looking skin or a thicker head of hair. Periodic maintenance treatments offer exceptional anti aging results for long periods of time.
