Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy
Newport Beach Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy or PRP is an in-office anti-aging treatment designed to activate collagen production and reduce wrinkles. Platelets are the body’s natural resources that speed tissue healing, decrease inflammation and pain, and increase connective tissue, bone density and the production of new blood cells. PRP injections are used in Newport Beach and Orange County clinics that offer wrinkle reduction, anti-aging procedures, and other cosmetic enhancements. Many patients with crow’s feet, smile lines, or forehead wrinkles find their skin becomes significantly smoother with Platelet Rich Plasma Injections.
What to Expect
PRP injections take advantage of the natural therapeutic effects that platelets have on the body. Platelets, which are found in blood plasma, work to increase blood flow to an injured part of the body, pumping up collagen production in that area. Platelets can do the same for your skin through this amazing treatment. As you age, your skin is bound to lose elasticity due to reduced collagen production. Increasing the collagen production in your skin with platelets can erase and prevent lines and wrinkles.
The best part about this treatment is that it uses your own cells to do the work. For patients in Newport Beach, Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy begins with a blood sample, which is then spun in a centrifuge machine, separating the plasma from the blood. Your own plasma is then injected into problem areas of your face. The process generally includes three to six sessions, with four weeks in between each treatment.
Are they safe?
PRP injections couldn’t be safer, as they use the patient’s own cells to do the work. With zero preservatives and no chance of rejection, the only risk is slight bruising. This side effect varies per individual, but no matter the presence of bruising, there is still no downtime required for patients in Newport Beach. Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy is pain-free, making it the perfect option for sensitive patients.
Turn the Clock Back
After being chosen by Tamra Judge, one of the Real Housewives of Orange County, for a breast augmentation in Season 3, Dr. Ambe was chosen once again to perform a facelift – except this time on her mother. Tamra and her mother, Sandra Baker, ultimately chose Dr. Ambe due to his reputation as one of the best facelift surgeons in Newport Beach/Orange County and one that specializes in very natural facelift results. After her incredible results last season, Tamra knew that Dr. Ambe would give her mother the perfect “turn the clock back” look she desired.
