Combat the Signs of Aging With PRP Injections

As we age, our skin changes. Time spent in the sun, years of smiling and laughing, and even the foods we eat can affect our appearance. The result? Our age starts to show in the fine lines, deep wrinkles, and droopy skin that appear. 

At Integrative Medica in Salt Lake City, Utah, our goal is to help you have the healthiest, youngest-looking skin possible to match the way you feel on the inside with your outward appearance. 

Jacob Schmutz, NMD, and Joshua Hersh, NMD, understand the challenges aging skin brings. What’s more, we’re outfitted with the best in holistic therapies to help you fight back against the hands of time.  

As part of our comprehensive line of holistic and natural services, our team is proud to offer PRP facial injections, which can harness the power of your own platelets to combat the signs of aging.

What are PRP injections?

Platelets are cells in your blood that carry nutrients and special growth factors to stimulate new cell growth. Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy is an all-natural, regenerative treatment that uses the platelets produced by your body to promote healing and encourage the development of new cells.   

When you have PRP facial injections, your provider at Integrative Medica takes a small amount of your blood and spins it in a specialized in-office centrifuge. This process separates the platelets from the rest of your blood. 

Your platelets are then combined to form a concentrated solution that is 5-10 times richer in platelets than what occurs naturally in your blood. 

Dr. Schmutz or Dr. Hersh then injects the PRP into the areas you’d like to target for treatment. For example, PRP can reduce the appearance of lines around and under your eyes, help fill in areas that have lost volume over time, and smooth away wrinkles on your forehead or cheeks.  

Because PRP stimulates your body’s natural healing properties, it can take 3-4 weeks for noticeable results to appear. And as your body continues to produce more collagen and elastin, the results keep coming, helping you look younger for longer.

What are the advantages of PRP facial injections?

PRP facial injections have many advantages over other cosmetic treatments designed to combat the signs of aging. For example, PRP facial injections:

Are PRP facial injections right for me?

The best way to learn whether PRP facial injections are right for your skin goals is to meet with Dr. Schmutz or Dr. Hersh at Integrative Medica. Our providers review your medical history, evaluate your skin, and listen to your concerns and goals to customize a treatment plan for you.

You may not be a candidate for PRP facial injections if you:
