Heard about PRP cosmetic therapy? Here’s how this popular treatment works.

Did you know that your very own blood may hold the secrets to improving hair loss and taking years off your appearance? Platelet-rich platelet rich plasmaplasma (PRP) therapy has become a revolutionary and popular cosmetic treatment offered by our Holliston MA, For A New You, provider Dr. Barbara Preussner. If you’ve been hearing the hype, you may be curious to know what this treatment can offer you. Here’s what you should know:

What is PRP?

Platelet-rich plasma is found within your blood and it is used to repair damaged tissue while also stimulating the development of new cells. Platelet Rich Plasma Holliston is often administered into damaged or injured muscles, ligaments, or tissue to speed up the healing process; however, our med spa can offer platelet-rich plasma treatment for cosmetic reasons.

What does PRP do to the skin?

Now that you know PRP’s amazing healing properties and ability to stimulate the production of new cells, you can imagine the benefits it can offer your skin. When administered to the face, it will not only stimulate collagen, but it will also repair damaged tissue (e.g. superficial scarring) and improve the tone, texture, and firmness of the skin.

PRP is most often performed with microneedling, which can be used to treat the face, neck, and chest, as well as other areas of the body.

How does PRP help hair grow?

PRP contains many key nutrients and growth factors that can stimulate the hair to grow. If you are looking to stop those early signs of hair loss, PRP may be a natural and surgical-free way to treat this problem. It is completely natural and non-invasive. Of course, your doctor may also prescribe other at-home treatment options or medications along with PRP therapy to make sure you achieve the most effective results.

What should I expect from my procedure?

PRP with microneedling is performed right here in our office. We will first take a sample of blood. Then, we will separate the platelet-rich plasma from your blood. The microneedling pen is made up of a series of very small needles that we will prepare with your PRP. These tiny needles will produce microtraumas to the skin while also delivering PRP to the skin to stimulate the body’s natural healing process.

The entire Platelet Rich Plasma Holliston process can take about one hour, and most will benefit from 3-4 sessions spaced months apart.

Will I see results right away?

If you’re being treated for hair loss then it will take months to see the results of PRP therapy; however, those who are turning to PRP to improve their skin will often see results in as little 3-4 weeks after treatment. Your skin will continue to improve over several months. Most patients benefit from maintenance treatment a couple of times a year.

Get a shapelier and more defined jawline with the help of this simple cosmetic injectable.

While most people associate a double chin with being overweight, even those who are within their healthy target weight can still face this jkybellasame problem. Sometimes there is just excess fat in this area and sometimes genetics play a role. As we age we may also notice a double chin forming. Whatever the reason might be, Dr. Barbara Preussner at For a New You Medical Aesthetics & Laser in Holliston, MA understands how embarrassing this issue is for many men and women. This is why we are happy to offer Kybella treatment.

What is Kybella and how does it work?

Kybella is a prescription injection and an FDA-approved treatment for targeting submental fat, or fat under the chin. This injection contains a deoxycholic acid solution, which is a molecule found within the body that breaks down fat.

When Kybella is injected into the chin, the deoxycholic acid targets and destroys the fat that has accumulated in this area to improve the chin’s shape and overall appearance.

What should I expect from Kybella treatment?

Kybella treatment is tailored to you and your needs and during your consultation, Dr. Preussner will discuss how many treatment sessions you may need to achieve optimal results.

Treatments are performed at least one month apart and some patients may need up to six sessions. This procedure is minimally invasive and doesn’t require any anesthesia, cutting or stitches.

How long do results last?

Once Kybella has destroyed the excess fat the results are permanent. Once you have achieved the ideal results through Kybella you won’t need to come in for further treatments.

Who is an ideal candidate for Kybella?

If you are dealing with embarrassing submental fat and you want to get rid of it without resorting to surgery then you may be right for Kybella. It’s important that you sit down with Dr. Preussner to discuss the benefits and limitations of treatment so you know whether it’s right for you.

If you want to improve your appearance and you think Kybella could help then it’s time to call For a New You Medical Aesthetics & Laser in Holliston, MA, to schedule a consultation. We would be happy to sit down and discuss the different treatment options that can meet your cosmetic goals. Call (508) 429-1006.

How PRP treatment can help you look younger.

Are changes to your face making you look and feel older? If so, it’s time to do something about it. It’s time for you to consider a Platelet-healthy femaleRich Plasma Treatment using microneedling. So, what is PRPT treatment? It’s a revolutionary new treatment to help you achieve younger-looking skin. Dr. Barbara Preussner at For a New You Medical Aesthetics & Laser in Holliston, Massachusetts can help you look your best, and it all begins with a younger-looking face.

Platelet-rich plasma is a component taken from your blood. The procedure begins with Dr. Preussner taking a small sample of your blood and placing it in a centrifuge. The plasma is extracted from the sample. Platelet-rich plasma is responsible for healing because it sends platelets and growth factors to an area to help heal tissue. PRP is applied to your skin and followed with microneedling.

Microneedling helps to deliver the benefits of PRP components by creating microdamage to your skin. Microneedling on its own helps produce more collagen to heal the microdamage. The extra collagen helps your skin appear firmer and younger.

When microneedling is applied after the platelet-rich plasma, the treated areas are able to absorb the platelet-rich plasma easily which accelerates the effects of the PRP treatment. With PRP treatment and microneedling, you can count on:

  • Little or no downtime
  • No cutting or surgery
  • Naturally beautiful results

Some of the age-blasting benefits of PRP combined with microneedling include:

  • Smoother, rejuvenated skin
  • Restoration of youthful volume and contours to your face
  • Increased blood flow to your skin, resulting in a better skin tone and color

You can look younger, and platelet rich plasma combined with microneedling can help. To find out more about PRP treatment, microneedling, and other aesthetic and medical skin care, call Dr. Barbara Preussner at For a New You Medical Aesthetics & Laser in Holliston, Massachusetts today at (508) 429-1006.
