With age comes wisdom, experience, and maturity. With aging, though, comes some physical changes that we’d be happy to live without.
The good news, however, is that Precision Skin Institute, one of the best dermatology cosmetic centers in the Fort Lauderdale area, has everything you need to treat the top two pitfalls of aging:
Hair loss and aging skin.
So, what is, the best skincare treatment to treat hair loss and rejuvenate skin?
It’s called PRP, or Platelet-Rich Plasma, and it’s revolutionizing the way we care for our patients at our full-service cosmetic, medical and surgical dermatology center.
Platelet-Rich Plasma, also known as PRP, is a high concentration of your own platelets combined with nutrient-rich growth factors in a small volume of plasma. That means you’re using your own platelets to do everything from:
Restoring smooth texture and elasticity in your skin
Improving Tone and Texture
Smoothing Acne Scars
Improving fine lines and wrinkles (especially around the eyes)
Restoring hair growth
Though this may seem like the plot of a great fantasy film, it’s not fiction- it’s science. And it works.
Here’s what you need to know about PRP treatments at Precision Skin Institute:
PRP for Facial Rejuvenation
As recently reported by leading beauty publication, Refinery29, “the platelet-rich plasma (PRP) facial, includes drawing blood from your arm, separating the platelets and plasma full of skin fertilizers (growth factors), and then injecting them into your skin with tiny needles to stimulate the skin to regenerate, the entire procedure is meant to aid cell turnover.”
But don’t get turned off by the idea of needles and blood just yet. This procedure has been said to mimic the results of a facelift, with almost NO downtime. How’s that for magic skincare?!
This procedure takes about 40-minute to complete, has a 24-hour recovery time and is very tolerable with prior application of numbing cream, which your dermatologist can give you ahead of time.
PRP for Hair Restoration
Both men and women suffer from hair loss, and whether it’s due to genetics, illness, medications or just aging, thinning hair, PRP for hair loss is now available at Precision Skin Institute. By using the body’s own platelets, hair growth is gradually restored by injections. The growth factors in your blood cells begin working almost immediately as hair growth is naturally stimulated, allowing for results that look natural – because they are.
How many PRP sessions will you need for maximum hair-restoration results?
We recommend an average of 3-6 rejuvenating PRP sessions every 4-6 weeks for ideal revitalilzation of your skin surface.
PRP Application after Facial Resurfacing
The beauty of combining PRP with some of our most-desired skin-repairing techniques is simple – better results! Platelet-Rich Plasma treatments can also be used in conjunction with some of our cutting-edge sublative and ablative laser treatments for maximum skin-resurfacing effects.
Pair your PRP treatment at Precision Skin Institute with our Sublative Ematrix laser, a treatment that stimulates collagen by applying radiofrequencies to the upper layers of the skin. To go one step further and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, pair your PRP treatment with a CO2 Fractional laser treatment, help polishes away those surface imperfections.
