At Total Aesthetics, we're at the forefront of other cutting-edge roles for PRP, including PRP Breast Enhancement (also known as PRP breast augmentation and PRP breast lift) and the use of PRP for enhancement of sexual function.

We’re pleased to offer PRP as a stand-alone treatment for facial aging and also to enhance the results of laser skin rejuvenation – including our own unique PRP LaserPeel. (We also use Platelet-Rich Plasma for stimulation of hair growth.)

Safely and easily obtained from your own blood, then processed in an entirely closed system, the platelets are concentrated and their growth factors are utilized to enhance the healing process, and most importantly, build collagen. The potential applications for this natural type of collagen induction therapy are nearly limitless.

Why should I choose Total Aesthetics for prp treatments?

  • Total Aesthetics is a nationally accredited surgical facility that maintains the highest levels of safety and sterility.
  • Each patient’s facial aesthetics are carefully evaluated and a customized treatment plan is formulated utilizing the latest technology and techniques.
  • Total Aesthetics was an early adapter of microneedling technology, which, along with fractional laser treatment, is sometimes combined with PRP for an enhanced result.
  • Because the number and concentration of platelets is extremely critical, we use the next generation PRP - the FDA approved Selphyl® Platelet-Rich Fibrin Matrix (PRFM). Selphyl suspends the ultrapure platelets in an all-natural scaffold, to produce a controlled and sustained release of platelet-derived growth factors. Because Selphyl is a closed system, sterility is maintained and no contaminants can enter the PRP.
  • Some PRP preparations that claim to have high platelet concentrations do so at the expense of inflammatory red and white blood cells, that can produce the opposite of the desired effect. Preparation with Selphyl minimizes the amount of undesired RBCs and WBCs in the PRP, and its golden color has earned it the name “liquid gold.”
  • We use AccuVein® technology to minimize bruising and discomfort during the blood draw.

Concerns

Scars

PRP is extracted and injected without surgery and should not leave any visible scars - in fact, the injection of Platelet-Rich Plasma can be used to treat pre-existing scars.

Cost

Each PRP treatment session costs less than $1,000 at Total Aesthetics. Dr. O’Connell will discuss the cost of your procedure with you during your consultation.

Recovery

After your treatment, you may temporarily have a red, flushed look, with occasional spotting in the treated areas. By the next day, you will likely feel ready to return to your normal life. Because PRP is made from your own cells, and processed in an entirely closed system, the risk of side effects is low. Any mild swelling, redness, or bruising usually fades within a few days.

Discomfort

Because we use AccuVein technology during the blood draw, discomfort and bruising are minimized. Patients may experience slight tenderness and minor bruising, but discomfort is minimal.

The first step towards a new, beautiful you is to schedule a personal consultation.

Along with providing the highest level of care, no effort is spared to create an environment where each patient is nurtured and cared for as an individual. Use our form to contact Dr. O’Connell with questions about any of our aesthetic or plastic surgery procedures.
