About PRP Therapy
Our experienced team of aesthetic professionals is proud to perform platelet-rich plasma therapy (PRP) at Allegro MedSpa of Santa Rosa to help replenish your appearance. PRP therapy is one of the most sought-after cosmetic procedures in the industry because of its natural method and thrilling results. The treatment utilizes your own plasma to stimulate your skin, reducing the appearance of wrinkles. It can also be combined with microneedling in what is referred to as a vampire facial.

Patients who have dynamic wrinkles, droopy skin, volume loss, and uneven skin tone are typically the best candidates for PRP therapy. Since it naturally promotes collagen production, it is also a wonderful treatment option for refreshing tired-looking skin. Inform our team if you have any certain skin conditions, anemia, or blood disorders to decide if it is safe for you to receive PRP therapy.
Once you are seated comfortably in one of our private treatment rooms, a small amount of blood will be pulled from your arm and placed in a centrifuge machine. Most of the time, we remove about one vial worth of blood. After about 15 minutes, the different components of the blood will be separated and ready for injection. We will place the rich plasma into a sterile syringe and inject it into the predetermined locations. The PRP process usually takes approximately five minutes, but that can vary on a patient-to-patient basis.
What to Expect
Platelet-rich plasma naturally promotes the production of collagen and elastin to create tauter, more youthful-looking skin. As it utilizes your own blood, the risk of adverse or allergic reactions is basically nonexistent. You should expect your face to be a bit red after PRP therapy as traces of red blood cells can make it into the plasma injection. A cold pack can be applied to the injection area to minimize discomfort or minor swelling. We recommend you receive treatments every 4 – 6 weeks.
When you receive PRP therapy, your skin will be healthier and brighter than before with a beautiful, glowing appearance. This procedure is beneficial for women and men who appreciate a natural method of skin rejuvenation that yields stunning results.
