When you look in the mirror do you feel like the person looking back at you looks ten years older than you feel inside? Age has a way of doing that. A spritely woman in her 90s once told us, “I still feel 21 inside. Just my body is getting older, not my spirit.” She expressed what we all feel. Our bodies betray us by divulging our age. But, at Fountain of You, we offer some wonderful services to help you look and feel better at any age!
What Is PRP Treatment?
In western culture, we like to abbreviate everything – BRB, FYI, TTYL, LOL, and on and on it goes. The same is true in the medical field, but the abbreviations are helpful because many of the words in the medical field are long and convoluted! Here is a perfect example – PRP Treatment is the abbreviated version of Platelet-Rich Plasma Treatment. If you try to say it fast ten times, you will see what a tongue-twister it is!
PRP Treatment is a process in which one of our nurses takes a small amount of your blood and places it in our centrifuge machine to separate the platelets from the rest of the blood. A small amount of blood is added back into the platelets to form a “solution.” One of the great benefits of PRP Treatment is that because it is made from your own blood, there is virtually no risk of an adverse reaction.
How Does PRP Help Your Skin, Eyes, and Hair?
PRP Treatment helps to reduce the signs of aging and tighten your skin for a youthful glow. It is used to reduce wrinkles. It is also used to improve the appearance of rosacea, scars, and sun damage. PRP is often used in conjunction with the Vivace micro-needling treatment and the Cool Peel laser resurfacing treatment. Both treatments help to improve skin appearance, but they are even more effective when combined with a PRP Treatment.
PRP Treatment is used under the eyes to plump the “hollows” that appear with age. When your face has a fuller appearance, it looks younger. While our culture often promotes being thin, an overly thin face can actually make you look older. Filling out wrinkles and filling in the under-eye hollows can make you look substantially younger.
PRP Treatment is used in the treatment of what is referred to as “male pattern baldness.” This can actually occur in women as well, and its technical name is androgenic alopecia. If you are experiencing this, then PRP Treatment can help reduce hair loss, help the density of hair growth, and increase the diameter of individual hairs giving your hair a fuller appearance.
