PRP for the Face in Richmond, VA
Many distance themselves from cosmetic treatments because they introduce foreign substances to the body. PRP (platelet-rich plasma) eliminates this worry and offers many rejuvenation benefits. Richmond Plastic Surgeons offers PRP for men and women in Richmond, Midlothian and surrounding areas of Virginia.
What is PRP?
PRP, or platelet-rich plasma, is a treatment that uses the blood from your own body to create plasma that is highly concentrated with platelets. These platelets are integral to tissue health, contributing to both healing and growth in the cells. This regenerative process is jumpstarted when platelet-rich plasma is returned to the body, resulting in a reduction of wrinkles and tightening of the skin.

What Do I Need to Do Before Having PRP?
Schedule a consultation with one of our board-certified plastic surgeons to find out if PRP is the best anti-aging option for you.
What Should I Expect During My PRP Treatment?
A PRP treatment begins with drawing blood. While the plasma is being created, your skin will be prepared for the treatment. Next, the PRP is injected into the body, a process that takes approximately 15 minutes. This is virtually painless and requires no downtime. Since the PRP is created from your own blood cells, the risk of negative side effects is eliminated. However, you may experience mild swelling or bruising for a few days following treatment.
Will I Have Scars After Getting PRP?
You will not have scars as a result of your PRP treatment.
When Will I See the Results?
You will see improvements as soon as a few weeks after treatment, and these results continue to improve as the plasma spurs healing and growth in the body. Some patients may require multiple treatments to achieve the results they desire. This treatment can also be combined with laser treatments or injectable fillers to maximize results.
How Long Will the Results of PRP Last?
Results will vary from patient to patient, but regular treatments can be scheduled to maintain results for extended periods of time.
How Much Does PRP Cost in Richmond?
PRP is elective and not covered by insurance. After your consultation, we provide a detailed cost so that you can review your budget and be prepared to pay for the procedure. We accept several payment options, and financing is available through CareCredit®.
