About PRP Therapy
We offer platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy at Advanced Dermatology to help rejuvenate your appearance. PRP therapy is one of the hottest cosmetic procedures on the aesthetic market because of its natural method and promising results. It utilizes your own plasma to stimulate your skin, minimizing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. If you are interested in PRP therapy, contact Advanced Dermatology in Katy, League City, Pearland, and Sugar Land, TX to schedule a private consultation.

Women and men who want to improve the tone and texture of their complexion are typically ideal candidates for PRP therapy. Since it naturally promotes collagen production, it is also a great treatment option if you have tired or dull-looking skin. Let us know if you have certain any skin conditions, blood disorders, or anemia to ensure that it is safe for you to receive PRP therapy.
Once you are seated comfortably in one of our private treatment rooms, a small amount of blood will be drawn from your arm and placed in a centrifuge machine. We draw about four tablespoons or one vial worth of blood. After about 15 minutes, the different components of the blood will be separated and ready for injection. We will place the concentrated plasma into a sterile syringe and inject it into the designated areas of the face. The procedure usually only takes about five minutes, but this will vary in each patient.
What to Expect
Platelet-rich plasma naturally promotes collagen production and elastin to create tighter and younger-looking skin. Since it utilizes your own blood, there is no risk of allergic or adverse reactions. You should expect your face to be a little red after treatment as some traces of red blood cells will be included in the plasma injection. A cold pack can be applied to the injection site to ease any discomfort or minor swelling. We recommend you receive treatments every 4 – 6 weeks.
Use Your Own Fountain of Youth
Using PRP therapy, your skin will be healthier and brighter than before and will produce a beautiful, glowing appearance.
