PRP is a non-surgical cosmetic procedure that involves injecting components derived from your body back into your skin to produce stunning results. Bay Area Aesthetic Surgery has exceptional cosmetic specialists who provide highly-curated PRP treatments in San Francisco to make your skin appear smooth, even-textured, firm, and youthful.

What is PRP treatment?

PRP is an autologous, non-surgical, and injectable treatment that relies on using components derived from your body to activate your skin’s natural healing processes. The treatment involves harvesting a small sample of your blood, isolating the PRPs (platelet-rich plasmas), and injecting them into the treatment areas. Over time, your body naturally heals cosmetic concerns and increases your collagen reserves. The results are smooth, even-textured, and firm skin without downtime or complications. PRP treats:

  • Wrinkles and fine lines
  • Skin sagging and laxity
  • Hyperpigmentation and melasma
  • Sun damage and age spots
  • Brown spots and redness
  • Acne scars and surgical scars

The benefits of PRP include:

  • It’s a non-surgical and non-invasive treatment
  • Autologous treatment, i.e., based on your body’s natural components
  • Causes no pain and discomfort
  • The procedure concludes within 15 to 30 minutes
  • Improves skin quality and complexion
  • Increases skin cell turnover and collagen production
  • Suitable for all skin types and colors
  • No risk of allergic reactions
  • No complications or harsh side effects
  • No downtime or extended recovery periods

How does PRP work?

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a component derived from a small sample of your blood. The PRP contains growth factors responsible for your body’s natural healing processes. When you’re bruised or hurt, the growth factors in your blood increase skin cell turnover and heal the wounds. When PRPs are injected into targeted areas, they encourage your body to produce new collagen fibers and increase skin cell turnover. Over time, the damaged skin tissues are replaced by new skin tissues, and the new collagen fibers restore your skin’s strength, firmness, and tightness.

Am I the right candidate for PRP?

You’re suitable for PRPs if you have any skin concerns caused by acne damage, sun damage, age, or other factors. PRP is safe for everyone because it’s an autologous treatment, i.e., components derived from your own body are injected into your skin. As such, there’s no risk of allergic reactions or complications. However, our cosmetic providers will assess your skin quality and review your medical history to ensure you’re a viable candidate. You might not be suitable for the treatment if you have active skin infections in the treatment areas.

How do I move forward with PRP?

If you’d like to proceed with PRP treatments in our San Francisco office, please schedule a consultation with the cosmetic procedures at Bay Area Aesthetic Surgery. Our providers will assess your skin quality and discuss your goals to curate the ideal PRP treatment plan for optimal results. They’ll explain every step of the treatment process so you have complete clarity.

What can I expect during PRP?

The PRP treatment starts with a simple blood draw using a small syringe — similar to a blood draw for diagnostic purposes. The blood is placed in a centrifuge to isolate the platelet-rich plasmas from the platelet-poor plasmas. The desired components are isolated and purified. Meanwhile, the cosmetic providers cleanse the treatment areas on your skin to receive the injection. The purified PRPs are strategically injected into the treatment areas using ultrafine needles. You might feel a slight pinch, but there’s no pain.

What can I expect after PRP?

Like all other injectable treatments, you’ll experience mild redness, swelling, and irritation around the injection points. Some patients experience temporary bruising around the treatment areas. However, you can resume all your daily activities and work immediately without downtime.

What kind of results can I expect?

PRP results appear gradually over several weeks and months, depending on your body’s natural healing processes. Your skin will gradually seem smoother with fewer wrinkles, and the scars will start fading away. You might need multiple sessions for optimal results — your provider will recommend the ideal treatment frequency.
