Am I An Ideal Candidate For PRP Injections?
If you are looking for a solution to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, regain facial volume, reduce skin discoloration, and more, PRP injections in Atlanta may be right for you. PRP injections can improve the overall quality of your skin without the need for extensive skin care routines or facial surgery. PRP injections increase the amount of collagen and elastin your body produces, resulting in a rejuvenated facial appearance.
The ideal candidate for PRP facial injections in Atlanta should be in good general health and a non-smoker. If you are pregnant, breast feeding, or taking anti-inflammatory medications, you may not be eligible for this treatment. During your consultation for PRP facial injections in Atlanta, our team will assess your health and medical history to determine if you are any ideal candidate for PRP injections.
What Can I Expect During PRP Facial Rejuvenation?
Because of the treatment’s minimally invasive nature, PRP injections in Atlanta are administered in the comfort of our office. Before injecting the PRP, your skin care professional at Astra Plastic Surgery will apply a topical anesthetic or administer a local anesthetic. The treatment begins by drawing a small amount of the patient’s blood, usually around 2 ounces. After the blood is drawn, it is placed in a centrifuge for 30 to 45 minutes to separate the platelet-rich plasma from the blood.
Once the PRP is separated from the blood, it is placed in a syringe and injected into the treatment areas. Typically, patients experience little-to-no pain or discomfort during the treatment. Depending on the goals of the patients and the number of treatment areas, PRP facial rejuvenation can take anywhere from an hour to an hour and a half to complete.
What Can I Expect After The PRP Injection Treatment?
Following the PRP facial injection treatment, some patients may experience mild pain, swelling, or bruising at the injection sites. However, these symptoms are normal and should subside in the days following the procedure. We recommend that patients refrain from vigorous exercise and touching their face until their injection sites are fully healed. Before sending you home, our team will provide detailed aftercare instructions to minimize the recovery period and maximize the results of your PRP skin care injections.
