Is PRP make your skin younger?

PRP: As the age increases, wrinkles also increase the skin of the face. If you do not want to have beautiful surgeries, there are other alternative methods.


One of these methods is PRP to treat skin and reduce wrinkles.

This improves collagen of the skin and thus helps to rejuvenate the skin. 

Platelet-rich plasma therapy


The steps of this method are fully explained in the previous article about the hair. For the skin is also done in the same way:

The steps of this method

First step


At the first stage, your blood is taken from the arm and is placed in a centrifuge (This is a machine that spins around very quickly, causing the blood components to separate. The separation process takes about 15 minutes.).

Second step


After 10 minutes, your blood in a centrifuge machine is divided into three layers:

  • Rich blood platelet
  • Poor blood plateau
  • Red blood cells

Third step

A blood-rich platelet is injected into the parts of your skin with a syringe.


Tips you should follow after injection

  • Do not make up for at least 24 hours after using PRP method.
  • Drink a lot of water (hydration of the body up to 48 hours after the injection has a great effect as a result).
  • Put your head above your body when sleeping.
  • Inflammation and redness from infusion disappear up to 24 hours. Avoid putting cold and ice compresses to reduce inflammation.
  • The favorable results of this method can be seen after three weeks to one month, and depending on the age and amount of wrinkles and skin quality, it may be necessary after several months of renewing the process.
  • You should try to use a healthier diet (less fatty, less caffeine, and more) in the first two weeks after doing this.
  • Do not touch your skin for at least 24 hours because your skin is prone to infections due to injection.
