Find out how this simple skin procedure could rejuvenate your skin’s appearance.

You’ve probably heard the word “collagen” but do you know exactly what it is or what it does? Collagen is a protein that makes up about platelet rich plasma80 percent of our skin. Collagen is responsible for giving our tissues strength and elasticity. Collagen is also important to having a youthful appearance. Unfortunately, as we get older we start to lose collagen, which causes sagging, wrinkled skin. Fortunately, our Dayton, OH med spa doctor, Dr. Christopher Sesslar, is pleased to offer Platelet Rich Plasma treatment.

It might seem hard to believe that the answer to younger-looking skin is actually found in you. Well, in your blood, to be more specific. Platelet rich plasma, or PRP, is part of your blood and it contains proteins, platelets and growth factors that aid in healing injuries and wounds. Of course, in our case, PRP is used for anti-aging purposes. If you are dealing with any of these issues then it’s time to consider Platelet Rich Plasma treatment in Dayton:

  • Sagging skin
  • Dehydrated skin
  • Frown lines
  • Crow’s feet
  • Volume loss around the cheeks, mouth and nose
  • Acne scarring
  • Dark under eye circles

Everything from smoking to a poor diet to sun exposure can accelerate the aging process. Fortunately, this simple treatment can quickly improve your appearance. During your PRP treatment our med spa physician will take a small sample of blood. The blood sample will be processed in a centrifuge, which will separate the platelet-rich plasma from the rest of your blood.

The area we treat will be numbed then the PRP injection will be administered. While there may be some minor swelling or bruising near the injection site you’ll be happy to hear that this procedure has no side effects since PRP is taken from your very own blood. You’ll start to see results after a few weeks and results can last up to one or even two years.
