Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) for Treatment Enhancement in Texas and Louisiana

At Sanova Dermatology, serving Texas and Louisiana, we incorporate platelet rich plasma (PRP) into our treatment offerings to enhance the outcomes of laser treatments and skin rejuvenation procedures. PRP is renowned for its healing properties and ability to stimulate regeneration of tissues, making it an excellent complement to laser treatments that target a variety of skin issues.

What is Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)?

Platelet rich plasma (PRP) is a concentrated form of plasma from your own blood that is rich in platelets, which are the cells in the blood that help tissue to heal and grow new cells. The PRP is obtained by drawing a small amount of your blood, then spinning it in a centrifuge to concentrate the platelets. This concentrated PRP is then re-injected into the targeted area of your skin, where platelets can focus these regenerative abilities to enhance the results of other cosmetic treatments.

What are the Benefits of PRP for Treatment Enhancement?

When combined with laser treatments, PRP enhances the healing process and boosts the regenerative effects of the treatment. Here’s how PRP works in conjunction with laser procedures:

Accelerated Healing

PRP releases growth factors that accelerate the body’s natural healing processes. When used after laser treatments, which typically create tiny micro-injuries in the skin to stimulate collagen production, PRP can help heal these injuries faster.

Enhanced Collagen Production

The growth factors in PRP also stimulate increased collagen and elastin production. When used with laser treatments that promote collagen synthesis as part of the skin rejuvenation process, PRP can amplify these effects, resulting in improved skin texture and firmness.

Reduced Downtime

By promoting faster healing, PRP can effectively reduce the downtime associated with certain ablative and non-ablative laser treatments. This means less redness, swelling, and discomfort post-treatment, and a quicker return to daily activities.

Improved Overall Results

PRP not only speeds up the healing process but also enhances the overall aesthetic results of laser treatments. It helps to more effectively address issues such as fine lines, wrinkles, scars, and uneven skin texture.

What is the PRP Treatment Process Like?

The PRP treatment typically begins with the collection of blood, which is then processed to extract PRP. After your laser treatment, the PRP is applied or injected into the treatment area. This process is relatively quick and enhances the laser treatment benefits with minimal additional discomfort. This process can be combined with your desired laser treatment and only requires a few extra minutes.

Am I a Good Candidate for PRP for Treatment Enhancement?

While PRP offers many benefits and is safe for most individuals, the best way to determine if you are a good candidate for PRP for treatment enhancement is to schedule a consultation with one of our dermatologists. During this consultation, factors such as your skin type, medical history, specific skin concerns, and aesthetic goals will be considered. We’ll evaluate whether PRP can effectively meet your needs and how well it can integrate with other treatments you might be considering.

How Much Does PRP for Treatment Enhancement Cost?

The cost of PRP treatments varies depending on the treatment area and the other treatment(s) it’s going to be combined with. Sanova Dermatology customizes each treatment plan to the patient’s specific condition, which will be outlined and discussed during a personal consultation. At this time, we will be able to provide you with a transparent explanation of all costs associated with your treatment. We accept most major insurance plans and also offer financing options to ensure that our treatments are as affordable as possible.
