At RENATA Facial Cosmetic Surgery in Brooklyn PRP Injections are an all-natural injectable treatment that is prepared from a sample of your own blood. PRP (platelet-rich plasma) is made up of a concentrate of platelets that trigger the healing cascade by releasing key growth factors and activating stem cells that leads to the production of collagen. As a double board-certified facial cosmetic surgeon, Dr. Khelemsky specializes in multiple cosmetic treatments for the face and neck.

PRP Therapy has been used for decades across multiple specialties such as sports medicine and orthopedics to treat joint and muscular disorders. Due to the success of PRP in medicine, the procedure was then developed into an anti-aging treatment by dermatologists and plastic surgeons. PRP has also shown great strides for patients suffering from thinning hair. Dr. Renata Khelemsky uses PRP Injections to harness the body’s natural healing system that is found within the blood cells. After preparation, PRP is injected along specific areas to stimulate collagen production, promote healing of tissues, aid in the cell renewal process, and rejuvenate the skin. PRP can also be applied topically onto the surface of the skin after professional treatments such as microneedling and CO2 laser therapy to facilitate healing and collagen synthesis, leading to younger and healthier-looking skin.
PRP Injections have a unique role in aesthetic medicine and surgery in that it is an all-natural procedure using a patient’s own blood to rejuvenate and repair tissues by stimulating cell renewal processes. PRP Injections can be performed alone or in combination with other professional services such as surgery, dermal fillers, microneedling, and CO2 laser treatments. As we age, we slowly produce less collagen, which causes gradual sagging and loss of skin elasticity. Additionally, the hair on the scalp undergoes an aging process largely due to the thinning of the hair follicles. PRP may be applied to the skin or scalp as preventive therapy or as an anti-aging treatment for patients. Extensive research on PRP Injections demonstrates the following benefits:

PRP is a specifically prepared golden-colored sample of your blood that is concentrated in powerful cells known as platelets. Before receiving PRP Injections Brooklyn patieitns will have one small blood sample taken from them. The blood sample is then placed into a centrifuge that spins rapidly to separate the components of the blood and begin the process of platelet concentration. This golden serum is then drawn into syringes for injection.
For patients having a simultaneous skin procedure such as laser or microneedling, PRP is treated as a potent serum and is applied directly to the surface of the skin where it can be absorbed through the freshly available microscopic channels in order to activate collagen synthesis. Alternatively, PRP can be directly injected into specific facial regions using fine-tipped needles. In either case, the cells contained within PRP release growth factors that activate biologic cellular responses, including stem cell activation, to help repair and renew damaged tissues and stimulate your body’s natural collagen-producing cells, creating the biological foundation for more rejuvenated skin. Dr. Khelemsky’s patients commonly undergo a series of three to six sessions, spaced at monthly intervals, to reach optimal results.
Following PRP Injections Brooklyn patients can enjoy minimal downtime and may return to their daily activities shortly after their procedure. Any swelling, redness, or minor bruising is expected to subside within several days. Some patients prefer to rest for a few days, however it is not required and this decision varies from patient to patient. Dr. Khelemsky advises Brooklyn PRP Injection patients to avoid using makeup or harsh skincare products immediately after treatment to avoid skin irritation. Additionally, minimizing your direct sun exposure is key for optimal healing.
Various factors affect how quickly patients can expect to see results with PRP Injections, including overall skin health, lifestyle habits, and whether other treatments are performed at the same time. For patients desiring maximum antiaging benefits, PRP Injections in combination with microneedling will enhance the complexion and lead to noticeable results in two to three sessions. Patients who have moderate to severe acne scarring or with more mature skin types typically receive three to six treatments to realize their full results. Given the multifactorial nature of skin aging, results vary across patients. In addition to PRP Injections, a commitment to a dedicated skincare routine along with daily use of SPF will further enhance the appearance of brighter, firmer, and healthier skin.
