Ryan Krch NMD, a Phoenix, AZ doctor, is excited to provide platelet-rich plasma therapy (PRP) at Krch AESTHETIC MEDICINE to help refresh your appearance. PRP therapy is one of the most popular and innovative anti-aging procedures because of its natural method and amazing results. The procedure uses stem-cell elements of your blood to stimulate your skin, minimizing wrinkles and tightening skin. It can also help improve skin thickness, tone and volume. For more information about PRP therapy, contact Krch AESTHETIC MEDICINE in Phoenix, AZ to schedule a free consult. Dr. Ryan is excited to discuss all the benefits of PRP and how it can help to improve your skin. He first started using PRP therapy in sports medicine applications over 15 years ago to regenerate cartilage and ligaments in knees and shoulders.
Ideal candidates for PRP Therapy
The ideal PRP patient is someone looking to improve skin appearance with a natural effect that evolves over a 90 day period. Patients who have wrinkles, uneven skin tone, sagging skin, and volume loss are typically great candidates for PRP therapy. Let us know if you have any blood disorders, skin conditions, or anemia to determine whether it is safe for you to receive PRP therapy.
PRP Therapy Procedure Technique
Once you are seated comfortably in one of our private treatment rooms, a small amount of blood will be drawn and placed in a centrifuge. In 20 minutes, the different components of the blood will be separated. Platelets are a component of the blood and what primarily makes up PRP or platelet-rich plasma. Platelets acts as stem cells and become a modified cell when they are placed back in our skin. When we inject platelets into a knee with a torn ligament or lacking cartilage it helps repair the ligament or grow cartilage. When we place it in the scalp it can help grow new hair follicles (see our hair procedures). In the skin, platelets become fibroblasts, cells that grow collagen and other structural elements of the skin we lose over time or from stress. We inject the PRP under the eyes to tighten skin or to increase cheek size. We can infuse PRP in any area but primarily the face to add structure reducing sagging and to decrease wrinkles, and increase skin thickness. Radio frequency (RF) micro-needling is currently the best way to get PRP concentrated in the skin and scalp. We combine PRP with RF microneedling to rejuvenate skin and grow new hair on the scalp.
What to expect from your PRP Therapy Treatment
Platelet-rich plasma promotes the production of elastin and collagen naturally to create younger and tighter-looking skin. Because it utilizes your own blood, the risk of allergic or adverse reactions is virtually eliminated. You should expect your face to be a little red after the procedure from the RF microneedling and localized inflammation. This is good as it is part of the rejuvenation process. Some bruising can be seen when it is injected under the eyes. A cold pack can be applied to the treatment site to reduce discomfort or minor swelling and you can take Tylenol to reduce pain which is rare. Do not take any other pain meds. We recommend you receive treatments every 4 weeks for 3 months.
