Perhaps the most promising and exciting medical category is regenerative medicine.

To find out how PRP injections can boost your treatments or refresh your skin as a stand-alone therapy, call the clinic or set up your consultation online today.
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a derivative of your own blood that contains a high number of healing cells and growth factors. To get the substance and use it in your treatment, your Reviva Medical Aesthetics provider draws some of your blood and places it in a centrifuge, which is a machine that spins rapidly, to separate the components of your blood.
The PRP consists of plasma (the liquid in your blood) and platelets (growth factor cells that promote healing). Once your provider collects the PRP from the centrifuge, it’s ready to be injected directly into your skin where it’s needed to help it heal and regenerate.
In short, PRP accelerates and enhances other treatments. The healing qualities of PRP are versatile and can be coupled with many types of procedures. In aesthetic medicine, PRP injections can:
PRP injections can speed up your healing after other procedures and trigger your skin’s production of collagen. As your skin produces new collagen fibers, the results of your PRP injection are enhanced over time.
Reviva Medical Aesthetics also offers PRP injections for sexual revitalization. The injections can treat problems like erectile dysfunction and vaginal dryness and amplify your sexual satisfaction.
Individual results may vary
Because PRP comes from your own blood, there is virtually no risk associated with the substance itself. As long as you get your PRP treatments from a licensed and trained physician, you’re on track to getting a safe procedure with a quick and easy recovery.
As with any injection, you might experience a few side effects from the needle’s insertion. You might notice some light bruising or skin irritation in the injection area. To minimize these effects, your doctor places ice on your face immediately after the procedure.
Platelet-rich plasma and other forms of regenerative medicine have the remarkable potential to keep you looking young and vibrant without using chemicals or surgeries. To explore the possibilities of PRP treatments further, call Reviva Medical Aesthetics or book a consultation online today.
