PRP Therapy in Valdosta, GA
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy has enhanced medical outcomes for many years. A more recent development is using PRP therapy for cosmetic applications. Southern Vein & Laser Center offers PRP therapy to men and women in Valdosta and Alpharetta, as well as surrounding areas in Georgia.
PRP Therapy Treatments
Platelet-rich plasma, or PRP, is a derivative of the blood that contains special proteins that are proven to enhance the body’s healing process. The proteins are growth factors that stimulate new tissue development, and PRP contains a higher concentration than what is normally found in unprocessed blood. Integrating this high level of growth factors into cosmetic treatments promotes advanced healing of skin tissues, which may work to reduce signs of aging.
Benefits of PRP Therapy Treatments
Integrating platelet-rich plasma with other treatments has been shown to enhance aesthetic outcomes for our patients. PRP therapy is typically combined with other treatments, such as microneedling. The reason is that the platelet-rich plasma needs an avenue for penetrating deep into the skin. PRP therapy does not require any additional downtime or recovery.
How PRP Therapy Treatments Work
Researchers understand the benefits of platelet-rich plasma, yet the exact mechanism by which growth factors function to enhance healing is still being studied.
What to Expect from PRP Therapy Treatments
Platelet-rich plasma is derived from your own blood. We draw a small amount of blood and then place it in a centrifuge. This instrument spins the blood to separate the components. We draw the PRP into a syringe and administer it with a needle or with a radio-frequency device.
The recovery period is dependent upon the associated treatment that you have with your PRP therapy. For example, if you have microneedling with PRP, the recovery is based on microneedling. Incorporating platelet-rich plasma into the treatment may reduce the recovery and help you see improvements in less time.
How Much Do PRP Therapy Treatments Cost?
PRP therapy that is used for cosmetic reasons is not covered by medical insurance. During the consultation appointment, we provide an estimated cost based on your treatment plan. You may incur additional fees at the time of the procedure. For your convenience, we accept several forms of payment, including cash, checks and major credit cards. If you are interested in financing your PRP therapy treatments and other procedures, you can apply with CareCredit®.
