Most of the signs of aging, such as fine lines, wrinkles, skin laxity, and uneven skin tone, occur because of the loss of collagen and elastin. Collagen is the skin’s structural framework — it binds your skin together to ensure a firm, taut, and youthful appearance. The loss of collagen due to aging or excessive sun exposure can leave you looking gaunt, tired, and old. At LivingYoung Center, we perform non-invasive PRP skin rejuvenation to activate your body’s natural healing processes, stimulate collagen production, and reverse the signs of aging.

What is PRP Skin Rejuvenation?
PRP for skin rejuvenation is an exciting new treatment for rejuvenating the skin that utilizes your own body’s reparative cells to increase all the benefits associated with a microneedling treatment. PRP is a natural component of the human blood with a high concentration of growth factors, the components responsible for most of the healing activities in the body. During PRP skin rejuvenation, our cosmetic providers inject PRP into the targeted areas or apply the solution after microneedling, thus improving your overall skin quality.
How Does PRP Skin Rejuvenation Work?
PRP is platelet-rich plasma that contains highly concentrated amounts of natural growth factors, stem cells, and other cytokines that promote the regeneration process of soft tissues. It is obtained by centrifuging a vial of your own blood at very high speeds. The resulting plasma layer is then applied to your skin before and after the microneedling treatment to maximize penetration. In some cases, the plasma layer can also be injected into targeted areas on your skin.
When PRP is performed with microneedling, the procedure involves using a specialized device with precisely spaced micro-needles to create invisible vertical micro-perforations in the epidermis and the top layer of the dermis — a numbing cream minimizes any discomfort during this process. As a result of these micro-injuries, the skin shifts its natural repair mechanism into high gear and starts producing collagen and elastin to repair these micro-perforations. The PRP solution catalyzes and boosts the benefits of microneedling.

PRP Skin Rejuvenation: Treatment Overview
PRP skin rejuvenation is a simple, in-office procedure that concludes within an hour. Your cosmetic provider will draw a small sample of your blood via a syringe, similar to a blood draw for diagnostic purposes. Your blood is spun in a centrifuge at high speeds to isolate the platelet-rich plasmas that rise up to the top of the vial. The PRPs are then carefully injected into targeted areas on your skin to boost healing and collagen production. Alternatively, PRP may be applied to your skin after microneedling.
PRP Skin Rejuvenation: Recovery & Results
PRP skin rejuvenation concludes within an hour and involves little-to-no downtime (any redness will disappear within a day or two). After treatment, you’ll notice an immediate “glow” to your skin, and it will continue to improve over the next few weeks. The full results can be seen up to 6 months post-treatment as collagen production continues. For best results, we recommend a series of at least 4 treatments, spaced 4 to 6 weeks apart. After that, yearly maintenance treatment should be sufficient to maintain the results you desire.
