About PRP Therapy
Our skilled plastic surgeons, Drs. James Romanelli and John Layliev are pleased to offer platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy at North Shore Cosmetic Surgery to help rejuvenate your facial appearance. PRP therapy is one of the hottest cosmetic treatments on the aesthetic market currently due to its natural origin and promising results. It uses a patient's very own plasma to stimulate the skin, minimizing the prevalence of fine lines and wrinkles. At our practice, PRP therapy is performed in conjunction with microneedling. If you are interested in PRP therapy, call North Shore Cosmetic Surgery in Huntington, NY to schedule a private consultation. We will be happy to discuss the benefits of PRP as well as what it can do for your skin.
Ideal Candidates for PRP Therapy
Those with deep wrinkles, volume loss, uneven skin tone, and droopy skin are usually ideal candidates for PRP therapy. Because it promotes collagen production naturally, it's also a great treatment choice if you have tired or dull-looking skin. Talk to one of our plastic surgeons about any skin conditions, blood disorders, or anemia during your consultation to ensure that it's safe for you to undergo PRP therapy.
Procedure Technique for PRP Therapy
After you're comfortably seated in one of our secluded minor procedure rooms, a small amount of blood will be drawn from one of your arms and put into a centrifuge machine. In most cases, we draw around four tablespoons or one vile of blood. After approximately 15 minutes on the centrifuge machine, the components of the blood separate, and are then ready to be either injected or applied topically in conjunction with microneedling. Your concentrated plasma will be applied to the designated areas of the face that were isolated during your initial consultation. The PRP procedure typically only takes about 5 minutes, but this will vary with each patient.

What to Expect from PRP Therapy
Plasma from PRP therapy naturally promotes collagen production and elastin to reveal tighter and younger appearing skin. Since it uses your own blood, there is no risk of allergic or adverse reactions. As can be expected, your face may be a little red following treatment as some traces of red blood cells will be included in the treatment. Cold compresses can be used to ease any discomfort and swelling. We recommend you undergo multiple treatments in 4 – 6 week intervals to maintain results.
