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.

Does your double chin make you feel as though your appearance is subpar? If so, you may benefit from the dermatological treatmentKybella Kybella. This procedure can shrink your double chin, making you feel as great as you look. Learn more about Kybella and what it can do for you and your appearance with Dr. Barbara Preussner at For A New You Medical Spa in Holliston, MA.

How does Kybella work? 
Kybella uses man-made deoxycholic acid, found naturally in the body, to destroy the fat cells underneath the chin. Since the cells are destroyed completely, they can no longer store fat, meaning that ongoing touch-up treatments are unnecessary. Most patients need 6 Kybella sessions spaced about a month apart to achieve their desired goal.

Am I a good candidate for Kybella? 
A good candidate for Kybella is in good health and is not pregnant or nursing. You should tell your doctor if you have had other procedures or surgeries, cosmetic or not, on your face, neck or chin. You should also alert your doctor if you have trouble swallowing, medical conditions affecting the chin or neck areas, or have bleeding or clotting problems.

Kybella Treatment in Holliston, MA
A Kybella treatment begins with an examination with Dr. Preussner, a Kybella-trained doctor. This specialized training allows her to determine if you are a good candidate for Kybella. Then, Dr. Preussner injects Kybella into the skin underneath the chin. Your doctor administers the multiple injections using super-thin needles to minimize discomfort. The process takes about 20 minutes total.

If you think you could benefit from Kybella, you should consult with your dermatologist. For more information on Kybella, please contact Dr. Preussner at For A New You Medical Spa in Holliston, MA. Call (508) 429-1006 to schedule your consultation with Dr. Preussner today!
