Skin PRP helps to shrink pores, diminish fine lines and wrinkles and reduce acne scarring for a healthy and even glow that lasts.
How does Skin PRP work?
Skin PRP is a procedure developed and offered exclusively at Aesthetic Arts. The procedure merges the new generation of resurfacing technology with the unparalleled benefits of platelet rich plasma (PRP).
Venus Viva™ is a resurfacing device that combines NanoFractional Radio Frequency™ (RF) and one-of-a-kind SmartScan™ technology, Venus Viva™ uses microtips to deliver collagen-stimulating RF waves into the dermis, to stimulate the body’s production of collagen. The device allows for the clinician to choose how much ablation (removal of tissue through vaporization) and coagulation (destroying damaged protein with heat in favor of new collagen synthesis) is produced, allowing us to target a variety of skin problems.
PRP is a substance derived from drawing patient’s own blood and processing it to generate Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP). PRP promotes your own collagen to grow, regenerates tissue, and activates the stem cells present in the skin to naturally smooth and tighten. In this way, PRP softens wrinkles and creates smoother skin texture and tone.
How long does Skin PRP take?
Skin PRP is performed as a series of three or four treatments one month apart. Each treatment takes about 60 minutes. First, blood is drawn prior to your treatment then placed into a centrifuge to harvest the platelet plasma from whole blood. Numbing gel is then applied to the skin to ensure comfort during the procedure. The procedure itself takes about 15 minutes. After resurfacing is complete, PRP is applied to treatment area.
Is there any downtime for Skin PRP?
After the procedure, mild redness and swelling is noted immediately after the procedure. Nothing is to be applied to the skin 24 hours after treatment. Redness and swelling usually resolve the next day.”
