What Is PRP Therapy?
Men and women who wish to tighten loose skin or refresh a dull complexion may benefit from platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy. Frisco, TX certified nurse injector Anne Bechtold is pleased to perform platelet-rich plasma therapy for patients who want a natural way to bring a more youthful appearance to their face, breasts, or skin around the eyes. The procedure utilizes growth factors from a person's own blood plasma to stimulate new cell growth and collagen production in the skin, helping to naturally smooth wrinkles, tighten skin, and reduce other common signs of aging. PRP has boosted major enhancements to sexual rejuvenation for men and women with the O-Shot and the P-Shot.

How Does PRP Treatment Work?
PRP therapy works by using your body's natural healing abilities to regrow healthy cells, promoting the creation of new elastin and collagen in the skin. After you are seated comfortably in one of our private treatment rooms, a sample of your blood will be collected and placed in a centrifuge machine. Once the components of your blood are separated, the nutrient-rich plasma will be prepared and re-injected into your skin. The process generally only takes about 30 minutes or so, depending on the number of areas being treated. Because it uses your own blood, there is little to no risk of allergic or serious adverse reactions. Follow-up PRP sessions may be recommended to help maintain or lengthen your results.
How much does PRP therapy cost?
The cost of PRP therapy will be based on the size and number of areas being treated, as well as if you are having it combined with another cosmetic treatment. Your practitioner will come up with a cost estimate during your consultation at Johnson Family Medical and talk about payment methods we accept.
How long do results from PRP therapy last?
PRP therapy has been known to last for up to eight weeks. The results will vary in each patient and depends on where the treatment is used. Some of the advantages of this procedure are that it doesn't require surgery or a long recovery period, plus it is easier to afford.
What are the risks and complications of PRP therapy?
Possible side effects from PRP, when done alone, are minor and include only temporary swelling and bruising. If combined with microneedling, potential risks include skin infection, delayed healing, and pigmentation changes. This is why it’s important to have microneedling done by an experienced technician.
Will PRP help replenish volume?
PRP therapy does not add volume. While PRP treatments offer great results because it rejuvenates the appearance of the skin and helps promote the production of elastin and collagen, PRP treatments will not boost volume. If you want to contour areas on your face that have lost volume, then dermal fillers may be a better treatment choice for you.
Is PRP therapy painful?
PRP injections feel similar to a BOTOX® or dermal filler injection but with the additional step of the plasma extraction. Typically, patients will feel a mild pinch or pressure at the time of injection. If you are concerned about being uncomfortable, ask about including local anesthesia during your consultation.
