A Natural Alternative to Facial Fillers — Your Own Blood!
- Posted on: Jan 30 2015
If you’ve been looking for natural substitutes to synthetic facial fillers, you might want to explore your options in using your own blood to restore youthful-looking skin. This alternative is known as the PRP (platelet-rich plasma) treatment and is essentially the most natural filler you can use. This treatment is preferred by individuals who do not want to increase their risk of rejection or allergic reaction to synthetic fillers.
The PRP treatment involves drawing a tiny amount of your blood that is then spun in a centrifuge to separate the components. The plasma component containing proteins, platelets, clotting factors, and water will be harvested and reinjected into your problem areas. Crow’s feet, under eye hollows, sunken cheeks, and pockmarked skin have been shown to respond well to PRP treatment.
Visible improvements can be noticed on the third week post-procedure, lasting between 15 to 18 months. Temporary side effects on the injection site such as itching, swelling, and bruising tend to disappear quickly.
At North Coast Laser Cosmetics, the procedure is often complemented with microneedling. Miniscule needles will be applied to the skin to create tiny, controlled wounds and naturally stimulate the skin to produce collagen.
