About PRP Therapy
You can do wonders for your aging skin with platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy at Nikko Dermatology in Cypress, TX. Plus, you can accomplish this using your own blood. Our board-certified Dermatologist, Dr. Nikko can take a vial of your blood to extract 3 – 5 more platelets, growth factors, and active proteins to inject back into your skin. This will promote healthy collagen production and may rejuvenate your injured skin. PRP therapy is an amazing advancement in the world of dermatology and aesthetics. Since it is made from your own blood, there are no risks of allergic reactions. Replenish some of your skin's natural moisture, reduce fine lines and wrinkles, tighten the skin, and improve volume loss with PRP.
Area of Concern
PRP stimulates collagen growth for facial rejuvenation that helps to improve wrinkles, puffiness under the eyes, as well as enhancing the overall skin tone, texture, and elasticity. For the first 1 – 3 days after the procedure, patients may have some mild swelling, redness, and bruising. Patients will begin to see improvements to their skin in about 3 – 4 weeks after their treatment, which usually lasts about 6 – 18 months. For better results, patients may have multiple treatments scheduled every 1 – 2 months.
How to Treat
Originally used in orthopedic medicine, reconstructive surgery, and dentistry, the principles of PRP therapy have been applied in dermatology for skin rejuvenation. A small amount of blood is drawn from the patient and then spun in a special centrifuge until the stem cells, platelets, and growth factors are concentrated, which turns it into platelet rich plasma (PRP). The prepared PRP is then injected into the facial areas of concern as it should stimulate the growth of new collagen and tissue.
