42 Year Old Cellulite Finally Gone! Fort Lauderdale, FL

Though this is a new procedure, Dr. Elias was very informative about the entire procedure form start to finish. He was kind and gentle with the procedure and kept me comfortable for the whole treatment. I like how after he circled the dimples he was going to treat, he printed a picture for me to confirm these were the spots I wanted treated and that nothing was missed. It also allowed him to explain why some of the spots I wanted treated werent able to be treated by Cellfina, but I am excited to try Ulthera for my remaining wavy cellulite as he is confident that will work and I have complete confidence in him.

What is PRP?

PRP, or platelet-rich plasma, is commonly known as the “vampire procedure.” This state-of-the-art nonsurgical procedure is a regenerative technique used for its revolutionary anti-aging properties. PRP first hit the market to target pain and accelerate the healing process in tissue and joints. Now, dermatologists are taking the world by storm and using PRP therapy to enhance the suppleness and natural glow of their patients. Platelet-rich plasma therapy utilizes your own platelets to exhilarate the skin and increase collagen production.

Ideal Candidate

The ideal candidate for PRP therapy is someone who is in good health, with no severe skin conditions. Patients who benefit most from this procedure are those who are looking to prevent signs of aging or turn back the hands of time. If you have aging skin, fine lines and wrinkles, acne scars, or sun damage, the PRP procedure can improve your appearance.

What to Expect

A doctor will perform a simple blood draw and then place it in a centrifuge. Once it is done spinning, the platelets and plasma will be separated from the other blood components, leaving you with platelet-rich plasma. At Elias Dermatology®, the PRP is injected into areas where the patient would like to see improvement. This treatment is often used in conjunction with microneedling to maximize the results. PRP therapy typically takes a total of 30 to 40 minutes. In order to minimize discomfort, a numbing agent is applied.

Initial redness will occur after the procedure and will fade away within one to three days. Some patients heal in as little as one day. It is recommended to repeat the procedure once a month until you have achieved your desired results.

PRP and Hair Loss

Platelet-rich plasma therapy is also making waves for those who have struggled with hair loss. For both men and women, hair loss can be challenging to accept. Much like with the facial area, PRP for hair restoration is injected into the scalp. The platelet-rich plasma stimulates the hair follicle and inhibits hair regrowth without having to undergo a surgical procedure. Consult with a Board Certified dermatologist to discuss whether or not you are a good candidate for hair restoration with PRP.

Adding Treatments

Platelet-rich plasma therapy is commonly combined with microneedling to increase the production of collagen. By using this tool, the patient’s PRP is administered throughout all problem areas. PRP is also used in conjunction with fillers to improve the suppleness and elasticity of the skin. Particularly in tear troughs, upper lip wrinkles, and smile lines.

Why choose Elias Dermatology® for PRP?

Anyone considering PRP therapy should always consult with a Board Certified dermatologist. It is crucial that you undergo the procedure with a licensed professional. When you meet with Dr. Elias, he will evaluate the areas of your face that have experienced collagen loss. Once he has identified the target areas, a very thin needle will be used to administer the platelet-rich plasma. When used in conjunction with microneedling, this procedure provides stunning results and will improve substantially with each procedure. Call Elias Dermatology® today to get started on achieving glowing, youthful looking skin.
