Dr. Robert Wilcox, head of The Plastic & Cosmetic Surgery Center of Texas offers PRP treatments to residents of Plano, Frisco, Dallas, and the neighboring communities.
What is PRP Therapy?
PRP therapy is a procedure that utilizes platelet-rich plasma that is harvested from a patient’s blood. This treatment option is often used in place of more invasive procedures, like facial surgery, or even as an alternative to dermal fillers. PRP has often been referred to as liquid gold by cosmetic surgeons and patients alike thanks to its almost magically ability to stimulate the body’s natural production of collagen and skin cells.
Benefits of PRP Therapy
Over time, our skin begins to give in to gravity, age, the elements, and other factors and will start to develop wrinkles, lines, and creases as well as lose elasticity and begin to sag. PRP therapy offers a number of benefits, including:
- Eliminates unwanted wrinkles, lines, creases, and furrows
- Lifts, tightens, and smoothes out the skin
- Safe, effective, and no risk of allergy
- Stimulates a faster healing process
- Long-lasting, with virtually no downtime required
Am I a Good Candidate for PRP Therapy?
Patients who wish to avoid surgeries or are a higher risk of developing an allergy from dermal fillers may be ideal candidates for PRP therapy. Because the patient’s own blood is used, the risk of allergens is eliminated and allows for almost anyone in good general health to enjoy the results of PRP therapy.
How Is PRP Therapy Administered?
Before the patient can be cleared for PRP Therapy, a consultation must be done at our office. Dr. Wilcox will review your medical history and overall health to determine if you are a good candidate. The actual procedure requires blood to be taken from the patient, similar to the process required when donating blood. Then, the blood in placed in a centrifuge, where the blood separates so the platelets can be extracted. Once harvested and prepared, the platelet-rich plasma is injected into the desired areas using thin needles similar to those used in dermal injections. Patients can typically see results within two or three months following the procedure.
