PRP Therapy Q&A

What is PRP therapy?

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a substance in your blood that contains proteins and growth factors that accelerate healing. PRP therapy is an excellent treatment for chronic pain, as it repairs your body’s tissues over time.

Thanks to its advanced healing properties, PRP therapy also repairs skin damage. As it promotes cell regeneration, PRP reduces the appearance of acne, fine lines, wrinkles, and other common signs of aging.

In dentistry, PRP therapy can even help boost healing after dental implant surgery. That results in a shorter recovery period, so you can return to Sargon Dental for your implant restoration as soon as possible.

How is PRP therapy an anti-aging treatment?

PRP therapy can effectively treat many common signs of aging or other skin concerns, such as:

  • Acne scars
  • Crow’s feet
  • Forehead lines
  • Neck wrinkles
  • Nasolabial folds
  • Vertical lip lines
  • Stretch marks

If you have crepey bags underneath your eyes, PRP therapy can tighten your skin and reduce puffiness.

What happens during PRP therapy?

PRP therapy is a quick, painless, non-surgical treatment that Dr. T at Sargon Dental performs in three simple steps:

Blood collection

Since PRP is a material found in your blood, Dr. T takes a sample of your blood to isolate your concentrated plasma.

Separation of plasma

The next step in the PRP therapy process is separating the platelet-rich plasma from your blood. That helps ensure the plasma you receive is as concentrated as possible. To isolate the PRP, Dr. T filters and spins your blood through a centrifuge.

PRP injection

Finally, Dr. T injects the PRP directly into your skin for maximum benefits. If necessary, she can deliver your PRP through skin needling or a derma roller. Both devices create tiny micro-wounds in your skin, which triggers your body’s natural healing response.

What makes Dr. T’s PRP therapy method unique is that she uses the most advanced technology to extract platelet-rich plasma containing autologous white blood cells. This type of plasma has a PRP enrichment rate that is about 3-5 times higher than conventional PRP methods.

The entire PRP process takes less than two hours and requires no downtime. You can resume your normal activities almost immediately after treatment.

What happens after PRP therapy?

PRP therapy stimulates your natural collagen and elastin production. That helps firm and tighten your skin while promoting a clearer, more radiant complexion. Any swelling or discomfort at the injection site should subside within one day.

Most patients notice visible improvements in the tone and texture of their skin within four weeks. For the best results, you may need up to three treatments spaced out over the course of three months.

PRP treatment results vary, but in most patients, results last for up to 18 months. Touch-up treatments with Dr. T at Sargon Dental can help you maintain your results for longer.
