PRP therapy in Burnaby is designed to improve the tone and complexion of your skin without the lengthy downtime of an invasive procedure. It is typically used to treat age-related blemishes such as fine lines and wrinkles. Using substances from your own blood, we can trigger your body’s natural healing process so that your skin is flooded with vital proteins.
Making Platelet-Rich Plasma
Platelet-rich plasma is a safe and natural substance that we extract from your own blood. We begin this process by taking a small sample of your blood and then placing that vial in a centrifuge. The centrifuge spins the blood at incredible speeds to separate the platelets from all of the other molecules. Once the sample is done spinning, we can extract the platelet-rich plasma for use. These treatments can even be combined with other cosmetic products such as dermal fillers.
Treating Age-Related Blemishes
There are many different reasons why blemishes such as wrinkles and deep folds begin to appear as we grow older. In addition to environmental damage from the sun and harsh beauty products, changes to your hormones can also have a major impact on the appearance of your skin. One of the reasons why PRP therapy is so unique is because it can treat a wide range of imperfections throughout the body. That includes loose skin, blotchy skin, wrinkles, and old acne scars.
What to Expect
PRP therapy is an extremely effective treatment, but this procedure isn’t an ideal option for everyone. That’s why an initial consultation at our office in Burnaby is key. If we determine that you are a good candidate, then you can look forward to your procedure.
After your blood has been extracted and we have a concentrated dose of PRP, we can then use it in the treatment area. The total length of your appointment depends on the size of the treatment site, among other factors.
Enjoying Your Vibrant and Healthy Skin
Many of our patients in Burnaby continue to schedule follow-up appointments to maintain their results.
