PLATELET RICH PLASMA
At Skintoxx Nashville, TN we are pleased to offer PRP therapy, also known as Platelet-Rich Plasma therapy. This is a medical treatment in which a patient's own blood is used to stimulate the healing of damaged tissue. The procedure involves taking a sample of the patient's blood, processing it to isolate the platelets, and then injecting the resulting platelet-rich plasma back into the area of the body that needs to heal.
One of the main benefits of PRP therapy is that it uses the patient's own blood, which means that there is no risk of rejection or allergic reaction. Because the platelets used in the therapy are derived from the patient's own blood, the treatment is considered to be safe and effective.

MICRONEEDLING + PRP FACIAL
Microneedling with PRP, also known as collagen induction therapy, is a skin rejuvenation treatment that involves the use of a device with tiny needles to create microscopic punctures in the skin. This stimulates the production of collagen and elastin, which are proteins that play a key role in maintaining the skin's structure and elasticity. During the microneedling treatment, the provider will apply a serum made from the patient's own plasma, which is rich in growth factors and other nutrients that can further enhance the skin's natural repair process. This is known as Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy. The frequency of microneedling with PRP treatment will vary depending on the individual and their specific skin concerns. In general, it is recommended to receive treatment every 4-6 weeks for three sessions for optimal results. There are many benefits to microneedling with PRP, including improved skin texture and tone, reduced fine lines and wrinkles, and a more youthful and radiant appearance. It can also help to improve the appearance of acne scars and hyperpigmentation. Overall, it is a safe and effective way to rejuvenate the skin and give it a more youthful and healthy appearance.
NON-SURGICAL FACELIFT (FILLER + PRP)
A non-surgical facelift is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that is designed to improve the appearance of the face without the need for surgery. The treatment typically involves the use of injectable fillers, such as hyaluronic acid, and Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP), which is derived from the patient's own blood. During the procedure, the provider will first inject the filler into specific areas of the face to add volume and smooth out wrinkles and fine lines. This can help to restore a more youthful and defined facial contour. Next, the provider will use PRP, which is rich in growth factors and other nutrients that can stimulate the production of collagen and elastin, to further enhance the skin's natural repair process. This can help to improve the texture and tone of the skin, resulting in a more radiant and youthful appearance. Overall, the non-surgical facelift is a safe and effective way to rejuvenate the skin and improve its overall appearance without the need for surgery. It is a popular treatment among those who want to improve their appearance without the downtime associated with more invasive procedures.
PRP FOR TEAR TROUGH REJUVENATION
PRP therapy for tear trough rejuvenation is a minimally invasive cosmetic treatment that is increasingly being used to improve the appearance of the tear trough area, which is the area under the eyes that can become dark and sunken with age. The treatment involves the use of PRP, which is derived from the patient's own blood, to stimulate the production of collagen and elastin in the skin. During the procedure, the provider will first draw a small amount of blood from the patient and place it in a centrifuge to separate the PRP from the other components of the blood. The PRP is then carefully injected into the tear trough area using a very fine needle. This can help to improve the texture and tone of the skin, reducing the appearance of dark circles and sunken under-eye hollows. The frequency of PRP treatment for the tear trough area will vary depending on the individual and their specific skin concerns. In general, it is recommended to receive treatment every 4-6 weeks for optimal results. The benefits of PRP treatment for the tear trough area include a more youthful and refreshed appearance, reduced dark circles and under-eye hollows, and improved skin texture and tone. It is a safe and effective way to improve the appearance of the tear trough area without the need for surgery.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS Is PRP safe? Yes! PRP Therapy is very safe because cells from the patient’s own blood are used, which means there are no preservatives and no chance of the body rejecting the cells. The primary risks and discomforts are related to the blood draw where there is a slight pinch to insert the needle for collection and there is a potential for bruising at the site.
