Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy (PRP) is an anti-aging treatment designed to induce new collagen production, reduce wrinkles, and diminish the visible signs of aging by growing new healthy tissue. PRP uses cells and growth factors from your own blood to slow and even reverse the aging process for a more youthful and radiant appearance. Collagen is what gives skin a firm, youthful appearance. As we age, less collagen is produced, causing sagging, wrinkles and soft tissue depressions in the skin. Once injected under the skin or applied topically onto the surface of the skin, PRP therapy counteracts aging by stimulating new collagen production in the exact areas of concern where we want the skin to repair and rejuvenate itself. PRP can be used on the face, neck, décolletage, and hands. The number of treatments needed varies per patient. We recommend 1-3 treatments administered at four-week intervals until the desired result is achieved, followed by 1-2 maintenance treatments per year. While some result is visible immediately at the time of treatment, there is usually a return to baseline in 3-5 days as the PRP is absorbed back into the body prior to the complete action of the cellular regenerative process. Most patients see improvement in about 12 weeks with results lasting up to 2 years.
The amount of Botox you need depends on several factors, such as amount and depth of your wrinkles , the area you are interested in treating and the look you are trying to obtain.

Botox starts to work in about 24 hours, but you may not see your full result until up to 2 weeks from the treatment. Because the treatment is delivered with a small needle, it is possible to have a small amount of bruising and tenderness at the site of injection for a few days.
Ideally, anyone who is undergoing injectable treatment should prepare for their procedure by avoiding anything that thins the blood. We advise our clients to stop taking medications/supplements such as Aspirin, Aleve, Ibuprofen, Vitamin E, fish oil, gingko biloba, ginger, and green tea, for 7-10 days prior to treatment in order to reduce the risk of bruising.
Generally, Botox takes about 7-10 days for the full effects to show, and last between 3-4 months. As you continue to get regular treatments, the results can last longer.
