PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma)
PRP has become a popular request from men looking for a non-surgical option to facial rejuvenation. PRP is a treatment that uses your own blood platelets to stimulate new cell growth, helping to improve your complexion, skin texture, and to assist with lost facial volume. After blood draw, your platelets are spun in a centrifuge which enables the separation of the blood cells from your plasma and platelets, at which time they are injected back into the skin. Because they are your own platelets there is no risk of allergy or rejection of the treatment. While this does not take the place of dermal fillers, it is a great adjunct to your dermal filler treatments. Collagen production can take up to three months to occur and individual results vary. A series of treatments is recommended for optimal results.
Chemical peels offer a great solution for men looking to improve their skin tone and texture.
