Anti-aging treatments involve so much more than expensive face creams. The latest beauty treatment involves pulling powerful healing cells from your bloodstream with platelet-rich plasma (PRP) treatments. Not only is Norma Magee, MD, a trusted dermatologist in Edinburg, Texas, she’s also a PRP specialist. Her team of anti-aging experts at Allure Dermatology can help you restore your youthful glow with this revolutionary beauty secret.
Platelet-rich plasma, more commonly known as PRP, is a concentrated solution of your very own growth factor cells.
It starts with a basic blood draw, just like you’d typically have when you visit your physician. Dr. Magee deposits vials of your blood directly into a centrifuge, which spins your blood and separates growth factor cells separate from plasma.
After collecting these cells and mixing them back into some of your blood, your custom PRP treatment is ready. At this point, all Dr. Magee has to do is numb your treatment area — if requested — and inject your platelet-rich plasma.
Your powerful growth factors instantly start healing skin cells and tissues, in addition to boosting collagen and elastin production. Your skin naturally smooths out in as little as one treatment.
Platelet-rich plasma treatments are ideal for improving many types of skin ailments and impurities. You may want to consider PRP for:
Because PRP is a treatment made of your cells, it’s the most natural way to get smoother, glowing skin that has the same suppleness you had when you were younger.
PRP treatments don’t work overnight. It's normal to have a minor amount of swelling and inflammation for just a few days after your PRP treatment. These side effects subside on their own as your growth factor cells start going to work.
While you may notice an improvement in as little as three weeks — depending on the severity of your skin condition — most men and women see significant results in about four to six weeks, with optimal improvement after 12 weeks. Some clients need more than one PRP treatment, but Dr. Magee can let you know what to expect.
A custom PRP treatment is one of the best things you can do for your skin. Schedule yours by calling the office of Allure Dermatology, or book your session online.
