Residents in Sterling, VA reap the benefits of PRP therapy as a facial resurfacing treatment

Facial Resurfacing Treatment In Sterling VA

Platelet rich plasma, or PRP, therapy has been used in medicine for years as part of wound care, cardiac surgery, and orthopedics. Now entering the cosmetic and skin care fields, patients are discovering the beneficial effects of PRP as a facial resurfacing treatment. Patients in Sterling, VA are turning to Dermatology Associates of Northern Virginia, Inc. for their range of effective skin rejuvenation techniques.

Rather than using a laser, surgery, or medications, PRP therapy makes use of the body’s own restorative properties to heal the skin. Within the blood are platelets that repair damage within the body. The platelets also contain growth factors to stimulate collagen and to heal tissues.

How the PRP procedure works

PRP therapy has been called a vampire facelift due to the use of plasma from the patient’s own blood for the procedure. This minimally invasive procedure involves drawing a small amount of the patient’s blood and spinning it in a centrifuge so the red and white blood cells separate from the platelets and plasma. After being spun in the centrifuge, the clear plasma contains a higher number of platelets, thus the name platelet rich plasma. The material can then be reintroduced to the patient using a microneedling technique to inject it into the target treatment areas.

Advantages of PRP therapy

Because PRP does not use an outside source but rather the patient’s own blood, it is a natural procedure with less chance of an allergic reaction or adverse effect. Besides the fact that the procedure is quick and relatively painless, it also requires little to no post care. PRP is effective for total facial rejuvenation rather than a treatment for a single problem. Skin rejuvenation with this technique can address:

  • Skin tone and texture
  • Acne scarring
  • Loose skin
  • Fine lines and wrinkles

Keep your skin looking youthful and refreshed. To learn more about the science of healthy skin, contact the staff at Dermatology Associates of Northern Virginia, Inc. (866) 808-3140

Dr. Neeraja C. Mattay Reviewed by Andy. K.

I recently had an appointment at the Sterling office. Booking the appointment over the phone was easy and fast. Upon arrival, I found the front desk staff to be pleasant and efficient. My wait time was minimal in the waiting room and well as in the back room, which is always a nice thing with any doctor's office. When I did meet with the doctor, we discussed my issues and overall felt like all my questions and concerns were thoroughly answered before I left. No complaints, and will definitely be coming back if need be and recommending this practice to my family and friends.
