What is PRP Therapy?
At Clear Lake Dermatology in League City and Webster, TX, our board-certified dermatologists are pleased to offer platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy to rejuvenate your complexion. PRP therapy is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures in the aesthetic industry because of its natural method and thrilling results. The treatment uses a patient's own plasma to stimulate collagen production in their skin, thus reducing the appearance of fine lines. We can also combine PRP therapy with other innovative procedures, like microneedling. For more information about PRP therapy, please contact Clear Lake Dermatology to schedule a consultation. Our dermatologists are excited to discuss all the benefits of PRP and how it can improve your skin.

People who want to improve the tone and texture of their complexion are typically great candidates for PRP therapy. This treatment can also treat certain skin problems and signs of aging, including wrinkles, fine lines, acne scars, and hyperpigmentation. Because PRP stimulates the production of collagen, this treatment is also a wonderful choice if you want to naturally brighten your skin. Please let us know if you have any specific skin conditions, blood disorders, or anemia so we can determine whether PRP therapy is safe for you.
Our Platelet-Rich Plasma Technique
Once comfortably seated in one of our private procedure rooms, we'll draw a small amount of blood from one of your arms and place it in a centrifuge. We generally draw about four tablespoons, or one vial, of blood. After about 15 minutes in the centrifuge, the different components of the blood will separate. Then, we'll put the platelet-rich plasma in a sterile syringe and inject it into the designated areas of your face. This last part of the procedure usually only takes about five minutes but can vary for each patient.
What to Expect
PRP therapy promotes the natural production of collagen and elastin to create tighter, younger-looking skin. Since this procedure uses your blood, the risk of adverse or allergic reactions is practically nonexistent. Following PRP therapy, you may experience a little redness near the injection sites because a small trace of red blood cells often remains in the plasma injection. Patients can use a cold compress on the injection site to reduce swelling and discomfort. We recommend getting treatments every 4 – 6 weeks to maintain your results.
