If fine lines and wrinkles are ruining your self-confidence, know that skin rejuvenation is within reach. At The Herschthal Practice, located in Boca Raton, Florida and servicing residents of Boca Raton, Delray Beach, Boynton Beach, Ft. Lauderdale, and the surrounding South Florida communities, the experienced team of aesthetic dermatologists uses platelet-rich plasma therapy to give you the youthful appearance you deserve.
What is Platelet-Rich Therapy?
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy is a state-of-the-art technique that uses platelets — components of your blood that support cell growth — for healing and anti-aging purposes. The team of dermatologists at The Herschthal Practice use PRP therapy for:
Skin Rejuvenation After Vivace™ Microneedling
Injecting PRP into the skin stimulates healing and regeneration, and increases collagen production, which is why it works as an all-natural anti-aging and skin rejuvenation treatment. PRP injections help to reduce scarring, sun damaged skin, fine lines and wrinkles, and under eye circles.
The team of medical experts at The Herschthal Practice may recommend PRP injections for rejuvenation after Vivace™ microneedling, which is an aesthetic treatment that uses radiofrequency energy to produce tiny skin punctures that enhance collagen production. The micro-wounds created from microneedling allow PRP to reach deeper into your skin for ultimate rejuvenation.
An All-Natural Alternative to Fillers
PRP injections work well as a natural alternative to fillers derived from animal sources or bacterial fermentation (hyaluronic acid). PRP injections prompt collagen production to create a more plump, youthful look for your face. And because PRP uses your own blood, there’s less risk of your body having a negative reaction.
What Should I Expect During and After PRP Sessions?
For PRP therapy, expect your session to take about an hour. One of the experienced providers at The Herschthal Practice takes a small amount of blood from you and places it in a centrifuge, where it’s separated and mixed in with your plasma.
They then inject platelet-rich plasma into certain areas of your skin or scalp, where the process of regeneration begins.
You’ll feel little (if any) pain during the procedure, and there’s little to no downtime afterward. You may experience some swelling or soreness at the injection site. Avoid smoking, massaging the treated area, and strenuous exercise right after treatment.
How Many Treatment Sessions Will I Need?
You may notice results after just one PRP treatment, but your expert at The Herschthal Practice lets you know how many sessions you’ll need to achieve optimal results. You may require two to three PRP treatments spaced a month or two apart.
How Much Do PRP Facials Cost?
The cost of each PRP facial varies depending on how extensive the treatment desired is. While you do not need to have multiple PRP sessions to see results, many patients elect to have them done regularly, so frequency can also affect the overall price. During your consultation at The Herschthal Practice, Dr. David Herschthal or Dr. Jordana Herschthal will assess your cosmetic goals in order to develop a treatment plan that is tailored to your unique needs. At this point, we will be able to provide you with the exact cost of treatment. To help keep our treatments both affordable and accessible, we accept all major credit cards as well as financing through CareCredit®.
