What is aesthetic medicine?

Aesthetic medicine refers to the array of treatment options that enable patients to diminish signs of aging or improve their overall complexion. Medical aesthetics can help patients resolve various skin-related issues or complaints with minimally invasive procedures.

The team at American Rehabilitation Associates specializes in regenerative therapies like platelet-rich plasma (PRP) to help patients see results quickly.

What is PRP?

Platelet-rich plasma, or PRP, refers to the platelet-rich component of the plasma in your blood. This material is rich with growth factors responsible for your body's ability to stimulate new cell growth and heal itself. 

The PRP collection process involves your provider at American Rehabilitation Associates using a syringe to draw blood from your arm; the process is similar to a blood test.

They then place the blood in a centrifuge that spins the sample around at high speeds. This motion separates the healing platelets.

How is PRP used in aesthetics?

Because PRP stimulates your skin to rebuild itself, your American Rehabilitation Associates team member may recommend it to correct one of several issues affecting your skin or scalp, including:

  • Fine lines
  • Wrinkles
  • Sagging skin
  • Scars
  • Recent hair loss
  • Sun damage

The serum works with your body's natural healing processes, increasing cell turnover and promoting a more radiant complexion.

When your American Rehabilitation Associates expert injects it into a scar, wrinkle, or damaged hair follicle, the platelets and growth factors trigger a healing process that encourages your skin to produce healthy new strands of collagen and elastin.

Over time, your skin rebuilds itself with these new proteins, becoming smoother, clearer, and stronger.

What aesthetic services are available?

Microneedling is one of the most common ways PRP can be applied to your skin. This process uses dozens of super-thin, single-use needles to pierce your skin evenly, creating controlled wound channels. Most patients do not find this procedure painful at all.

When your skin is wounded, your body responds by rushing blood and nutrients to the area, flushing away toxins, and building healthy new tissues through a process called collagen remodeling.

How can aesthetics with PRP help me?

Aesthetics with PRP can help accelerate the healing of injuries and reduce signs of aging, including lost skin volume, wrinkles, and hair loss.
