What Are PRP Injections?
PRP injections utilize the restorative powers of PRP therapy for treatments including skin rejuvenation, scar revision, hair restoration, and sexual wellness. PRP, or platelet-rich plasma, is derived from a blood sample taken from the patient during treatment. The blood contains a number of growth factors that when injected into the body can stimulate the natural, healthy growth of skin and the surrounding tissue. As a result, patients can address a huge range of cosmetic concerns using PRP treatments. At Suite Six Medical Aesthetics, we have partnered with the best-in-class technologies on the market. We use the Magellan TruPRP system for PRP treatments, and often combine these treatments with microneedling for enhanced results.

How Are PRP Injections Administered?
The first step in a PRP injection treatment is to collect a blood sample from the patient, which will be used to develop the PRP. If the treatment is being combined with collagen induction therapy, microneedling will be performed at this time. Then, once the PRP is obtained, it will be injected into various areas of the face depending on the patient’s treatment goals. For this step, we use a topical anesthetic to numb the treatment area and minimize any discomfort that may occur during the injection process. The PRP injection treatment takes less than an hour to perform.
Is There Downtime After PRP Injections?
Although patients may experience minor bruising, redness, or sensitivity in the injection site, there is no downtime required after PRP injections. These effects typically fade within a few days, and do not prevent patients from resuming work and other activities immediately after their appointment.
What Kind of Results Can I Expect from PRP Injections?
After receiving PRP injections, the results may not be visible immediately. This is because it can take time for the growth factors in the PRP to take effect and begin healing and strengthening the skin. After a few weeks, patients will begin to notice gradual increases in volume as well as a reduction in wrinkles, scars, and other cosmetic concerns. The full results of treatment are typically visible about a month or two after treatment, although multiple treatment sessions may be necessary to deliver the desired results.
