PRP – AN ALL NATURAL FILLER
Our medical spa specializes in PRP – the most technologically advanced, safest, and most effective treatment for skin rejuvenation. PRP acts as an alternative to dermal fillers. By injecting your body’s own platelet rich plasma into the area being treated, it invigorates the area to effectively and naturally treat, with no added serums or chemicals.

WHAT IS PLATELET RICH PLASMA (PRP)
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) has two components: Platelets, and Plasma.
Platelets are tiny blood cells that help your body form clots to stop bleeding. The platelets have growth factors and other cytokines that help stimulate the healing of soft tissue and encourage healing.
Plasma is the liquid portion of your blood. It is a protein and salt solution in which red and white blood cells and platelets are held.
Thus, Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is plasma that has been manufactured to have higher doses of platelets than normal blood
PRP is made from your body’s own blood. First, a vial of blood is drawn. That vial is placed in a centrifuge, where it is spun at a high speed. The spinning process separates the platelets from other blood cells. Then, the extra platelets (which hold the growth factors) are combined with the remaining blood and injected into the area being treated.
The growth factors are activated by adding thrombin and calcium chloride.
HOW DOES PRP WORK AS A FILLER
We begin by using a microneedling tool to create a series of controlled injuries to the lips, cheeks, forehead, or other area being treated. The series of ultra fine needles prick a small area of skin at a quick rate. These micro-punctures are just large enough for the PRP to enter the lips, and enable the body to use it’s own healing mechanisms to heal itself.
The new skin that is formed is healthier, plumper, and more youthful, creating a look similar to that of a dermal filler.
PRP is so effective for skin treatments that its often called the “regenerative medicine”.

PRP VS LIP FILLERS
PRP is not a replacement for lip fillers for everyone. For those wishing to augment the shape of their lips, lip fillers, such as Juvederm, might be a better solution.
PRP is a great option for those looking to restore the natural youth to their lips, and for those whose lips have lost plumpness overtime. PRP is also a great solution for those who are looking for an all-natural alternative to lip fillers.
IS PRP SAFE
Absolutely. PRP is formulated from your body’s own blood, and has been proven to be safe by the FDA for a variety of uses including physical injuries, skincare, lip care, and hair regrowth.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE FOR RESULTS TO OCCUR
The first results will be a slight swelling and redness of the lips or other area being treated. This will resolve in 28-48 hours.
Because the PRP encourages your body to naturally heal itself, the result takes some time to occur. The full results will appear within 3 months.
HOW MANY PRP SESSIONS ARE NEEDED
You will see results after your first treatment. Treatments can be performed one month apart.
Once the desired outcome is acheived, a patient can expect to need a renewal session on an annual basis.
PRP candidates are those looking for a natural and subtle alternative to dermal fillers, or those looking to reverse the effects of aging on the lips.
PRP as a lip filler is a long-term treatment for deflated lips, or those experiencing a wrinking in the lips.

PREPARING FOR YOUR PRP PROCEDURE
You will be asked to avoid the following medications and herbs which may increase bleeding, and may cause bruising for at least two weeks prior to your PRP lip filler treatment:
- Any NSAIDs (such as Ibuprofen, Aleve®, Motrin®, Advil®, or Aspirin®)
- Ginkgo Biloba
- Fish Oil, and St. John’s Wort, high doses of Vitamin E, and Alcohol.
A PRP procedure is relatively simple. We begin by drawing blood, and allowing the PRP to separate from the rest of the blood in the centifuge.
Then, we inject the PRP into the lips with a blunt-tipped needle, called a canula.
A local anesthetic will be placed on the lips prior to being treated but you will be fully awake. A slight tingling feeling may remain for a 1-3 hours after the procedure due to the anesthetic.
AFTER RECEIVING PRP TREATMENTS
Redness, and a mild inflamatin may be present for a 24-28 hours. After 2-3 days a light peeling will occur. The maximum result will be apparent in about 3 months.
As with most cosmetic treatments, we recommend that you not exercise directly following treatment as this will raise blood pressure and interfere with the product settling properly.
Avoid alcohol, any non-prescribed blood thinners or NSAIDs such as Ibuprofen, Aleve, Motrin, Advil, Aspirin, and some herbs like St. John’s Wort, and high doses of vitamin E supplements for one week after treatment.
