Kansas City Plastic Surgeon Serving Overland Park, Leawood & Nearby Areas of Kansas & Missouri

Aging gracefully is a goal many of us share, yet the visible signs of aging, such as fine lines, wrinkles, and volume loss, can make you feel less confident. While surgical solutions like facelifts and blepharoplasty are effective, they aren’t the only options for achieving a younger appearance. Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy is a groundbreaking non-surgical rejuvenation technique that utilizes your body’s own healing properties to stimulate skin renewal and repair.

What Is PRP Therapy?

PRP therapy involves extracting a small sample of blood, which is then processed in a centrifuge to separate the plasma rich in platelets. This platelet-rich plasma is then injected into targeted areas of the skin. The high concentration of growth factors in platelets accelerates the natural healing process, promoting collagen production, skin rejuvenation, and the repair of damaged tissues.

Ideal candidates for PRP therapy are those looking for a non-surgical way to address issues such as:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Uneven skin texture
  • Scar reduction, including acne scars
  • General skin rejuvenation

PRP is safe for those in good health without any active skin infections and who are not taking blood-thinning medications. It is also suitable for individuals seeking a natural treatment method since it uses the body’s own biological materials.

PRP Procedure

The PRP therapy session is a quick and straightforward procedure that Dr. Levi Young and his team perform right in their office. The process starts with blood collection, followed by the centrifugation process to derive the PRP. The plasma is then carefully injected into the treatment areas using fine needles. The procedure typically takes about 30 minutes to an hour, depending on the areas being treated.

PRP Therapy Results and Recovery

  • 1 Day
  • High Activity

PRP therapy is known for its minimal downtime and natural-looking results. Patients can often see skin texture and tone improvements within a few weeks, with gradual improvements as the body produces new collagen. Results can vary but generally last for about a year or more. Repeat sessions are recommended to maintain the results.

Combination Treatments

Dr. Young may recommend combining PRP with other non-surgical treatments like BOTOX® Cosmetic, fillers, or laser therapies to enhance and extend the effects of the treatment. This approach can address multiple signs of aging and improve overall skin health.

Common PRP Therapy Side Effects

Most side effects are mild and temporary, including:

  • Minor swelling or bruising at the injection site
  • Redness
  • Sensation of heat or mild discomfort post-treatment
