PRP Treatments PRP is short form of platelet rich plasma. It is derived from your own blood and can be used to expedite healing after any surgical procedure. PRP is also used in facial rejuvenation procedures. When PRP is either injected or rolled with a special roller on your face, it causes collagen to form and gives your face a younger appearance. PRP when used as injections on the face will result in younger softer facial skin. If injected in slightly larger quantities, it can have the same effect as fillers like juvederm will have except that it is your own natural collagen. Since the body has to make that collagen, it will take about two months to see that effect. Most patients get a slight red blush after the treatment but can apply make up and resume daily activities. Redness usually doesn’t last more than 2-3 days.
