About PRP Therapy
Board-certified dermatologist Joseph P. Housel, M.D. is proud to perform platelet-rich plasma therapy, also called PRP, at Housel Dermatology, P.C. to help replenish your facial appearance. PRP therapy is one of the most sought-after cosmetic treatments in the industry due to its natural origin and thrilling results. The treatment uses a patient's very own plasma to stimulate the skin, reducing the prevalence of wrinkles. PRP therapy is sometimes performed in conjunction with microneedling. To learn more about PRP therapy, call Housel Dermatology, P.C. in Liverpool, NY to schedule a consultation. Dr. Housel is always excited to discuss the benefits of PRP and what it can do for your skin.
Individuals who would like to improve the texture and tone of their complexion are usually the best candidates for PRP. Since it promotes collagen production naturally, it's also a wonderful treatment choice for refreshing tired-looking skin. Inform Dr. Housel about any skin conditions, anemia, or blood disorders during your consultation so he can determine if it's safe for you to undergo PRP therapy.
After you're comfortably seated in one of our secluded minor procedure areas, a small amount of blood will be taken from one of your arms and put into a centrifuge machine. Usually, we take around one vial of blood. After approximately 15 minutes on the centrifuge machine, the components of the blood separate and are then ready to be injected. We will load your plasma into a syringe and inject it into the predetermined locations. This process typically only takes approximately five minutes, but that can vary on a patient-to-patient basis.
What to Expect
Plasma from PRP therapy naturally promotes the production of collagen and elastin to reveal tighter, more youthful-appearing skin. Since it uses your own blood, the risk of adverse or allergic reactions is basically nonexistent. You can expect your face to be a bit red following PRP therapy as traces of red blood cells can sometimes make it into the injection. Cold packs can be used on the injection site to minimize discomfort and swelling. Dr. Housel recommends you undergo treatments in 4 – 6-week intervals to maintain results.
