Facial Injections Q & A

What are PRP facial injections?

PRP facial injections refer to a popular cosmetic beauty treatment involving the use of platelet-rich plasma therapy (PRP) — an impressive regenerative medicine treatment designed to assist and accelerate your body’s natural healing process.

PRP is effectively used in several medical fields. It works particularly well for hair restoration, for treating cosmetic concerns, and for treating sports injuries, arthritis, sprained knees, and more.

PRP facial rejuvenation or PRP facial injections is a therapy used specifically to rejuvenate the skin on your face and address your aesthetic problems, such as fine lines and wrinkles.

What is platelet-rich plasma?

Platelets, plasma, and red and white blood cells are all present in your blood. Red and white blood cells and platelets are solid components, and plasma is a liquid that’s involved in blood clotting.

The platelets also have a multitude of growth factors that are useful for healing injuries and enhancing cell regeneration. PRP refers to plasma that’s rich in platelets, containing more platelets than what’s typically found in your blood.

Dr. Schmutz uses a special in-office process (centrifugation) that concentrates the platelets to obtain the platelet-rich plasma. Through the centrifuge machine, the platelets are around 5-10 times richer.

To address your cosmetic concerns, Dr. Schmutz carefully injects the PRP into specific areas, such as the circles or lines under the eyes or the areas that have lost volume, such as around the jaw area.PRP boosts collagen and elastin production and helps smooth, plump, and restore volume using the power of your own natural platelets and growth factors.

PRP facial injections involve a simple in-office procedure where Dr. Schmutz draws your blood from your arm and separates the platelets before concentrating the platelets in the centrifuge device.

Dr. Schmutz mixes the concentrated platelets with your remaining blood before injecting the solution into the target area. Dr. Schmutz can successfully administer multiple injections in just one in-office session.

What are the benefits of PRP facial injections?

PRP provides many benefits. PRP facial injections don’t involve surgery or medications that can sometimes present unwanted risks and side effects. PRP is a convenient and quick in-office lunchtime procedure with no downtime, so you can get right back to your day.

PRP is completely safe and a more natural treatment that uses your own blood, so your body won’t reject it.
