PRP Injections

When it comes to addressing your aesthetic concerns, are you hesitant to pursue traditional cosmetic injectables? Are you more interested in more natural treatment options? PRP may be for you!

Platelet rich plasma is a natural growth factor substance obtained from your own body. When reintroduced to your body, it effectively encourages your natural growth and healing processes. Discover the diverse benefits of PRP during a consultation with us at Capitis Medical & Aesthetics in Roseville and San Diego, CA!

What Is PRP and the Science Behind It?

PRP, or platelet-rich plasma, is a golden yellow substance packed with growth factors. It is obtained from your own blood. A simple blood draw is performed, and the blood collection is placed in a specialized centrifuge. The centrifuge spins rapidly, isolating the growth facts from the rest of the blood.

Stem cells can be found in every part of the body, including our skin. The PRP substance activates the stem cells that lie dormant in the skin on the face through certain growth factors found in the platelets. When activated, those stem cells grow new, younger-looking skin. Thanks to PRP, you can now enjoy a younger-looking appearance through a very safe and effective procedure!

What Is the PRP Facelift?

The PRP facelift is a non-surgical procedure where a doctor injects the growth factor substance, which includes parts of the patient’s own blood, into various areas of the patient’s face in order to treat wrinkles, acne scars, and give the patient a younger rejuvenated appearance.

What Is the PRP Facial?

Rather than injecting the growth factors, this is a topical treatment that involves applying the PRP directly to the face. This offers a range of potential benefits, such as:

  • Younger-looking color to your skin because of the new blood vessel formation.
  • The outermost layer of your skin, or “epidermis,” will appear smoother.
  • The procedure stimulates new collagen production over time in the “dermis.” This will lift the face to a more youthful, firmer shape.
  • Quick procedure lasting an hour to 90 minutes.

This treatment may be recommended for fine lines and wrinkles.

Could I Benefit from PRP?

As platelet-rich plasma takes factors from your own body, this makes it a safe and good option for most individuals. Your plasma and cells are unique to you, and this may be a good treatment option for those who are seeking more natural approaches to treatment.
