Combining Dermal Fillers with Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP): A Natural Approach to Facial Enhancement
When it comes to getting dermal fillers, chances are you are going to want to be sure that you get the best possible results out of your fillers. Dermal fillers are fantastic for helping to add volume to the face, which can even up facial features and make your face appear more youthful and healthy. Now, there is an advanced approach to dermal fillers that is helping both men and women alike embrace the positive features of facial enhancement and reap the benefits of dermal fillers. Combining Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) with dermal fillers can dramatically improve the results you will see from your dermal fillers.
What Are Dermal Fillers?
Dermal fillers are injectable solutions, such as Voluma and Restylane, that add volume to the face by filling it out and making it appear fuller and younger. Both men and women often opt for dermal fillers, and there are different fillers for different purposes. The most commonly known injectable is Botox, but Restylane is another popular choice to fill out the face. The biggest benefit to dermal fillers such as Restylane is that they are kind of like a facelift but without the surgery. In fact, dermal fillers are often a fantastic choice for those who are looking to get plastic surgery-type results without the downtime and risks associated with surgical procedures.
What is Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy?
Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy, also known as PRP Therapy, is a therapy that involves drawing a small amount of the patient’s blood and placing it into a centrifuge to separate the plasma. Then, the plasma is collected and applied to the desired area, either topically or through injections. This allows the body to produce more collagen, leading to a glowing, healthy complexion. PRP therapy only uses the plasma of the patient’s blood, so there is no need to worry about rejection or any risks.
Why Combine Dermal Fillers and PRP Therapy?
Combining dermal fillers and PRP therapy can make a huge difference in the results you will see after the treatment. Derma fillers and PRP therapy can offer great results on their own, separately, but when combined, you will see results that will be much better, as both procedures work together to repair skin and even out facial features.
Dermal fillers can last for quite a while but typically begin to wear off within a year. In that case, you will need to get your dermal fillers reapplied and touched up on a regular basis. However, when a dermal filler is combined with PRP therapy, you may find that the results last longer than before, giving you more time in between touch-ups. You may also notice that the PRP therapy begins to regenerate collagen production in the skin and begin healing the skin, and you may not even need a touch-up for up to twenty-four months!
The results following dermal fillers combined with PRP Therapy are a beautiful, natural, youthful look that lasts longer than dermal fillers alone. Also, since PRP is known to help heal skin faster, combining it with dermal fillers can be beneficial because it will heal the injection sites a bit faster than the dermal fillers on their own.
Since the risks of injectable dermal fillers such as Botox and Restylane are already low, PRP can actually lower those risks even more, helping the area to heal better.
Who Can Benefit from Dermal Fillers with PRP Therapy?
Many individuals can benefit from dermal fillers combined with PRP therapy. The treatment is great for those who are seeing signs of aging, such as fine lines, wrinkles, crow’s feet, marionette lines, sagging skin, laughter lines, sunken areas (such as around the eyes), and other skin concerns. In fact, this versatile treatment can work wonders for men and women at any age who may feel that their skin could use a dermal filler.
