Natural Rejuvenation

With age, your body's ability to repair itself diminishes. With reduced collagen production, patients notice the development of fine lines and wrinkles, increased skin laxity, and the loss of youthful volume. While synthetic injectables can deliver beautiful results, there is a natural alternative that uses your body's natural growth factors to rejuvenate your skin from the inside out.

The experts at Orange County Surgical Specialists are here to help you achieve your most authentically rejuvenated appearance with PRP injections in Mission Viejo. Learn more about PRP below, and schedule your consultation to discuss this advanced therapy with an injection specialist.

Put Natural Growth Factors To Work

What is PRP?

PRP (platelet-rich plasma) is a substance found naturally in the blood which contains a concentrated number of growth factors. Where injected, PRP stimulates and supports cellular regeneration and soft tissue repair in a way that is entirely natural. In the world of cosmetics, PRP is used to reduce signs of aging like lines and wrinkles, restore lost volume, enhance facial features, and promote healthy skin and hair.

What are the Benefits of PRP Injections?

Firmer. Brighter. Younger.

PRP injections offer the ability to reverse or eliminate signs of aging in a way that is comprehensive and truly beneficial. By enhancing cellular repair, PRP delivers everything your skin needs to restore its youthful texture and appearance. PRP injections can:

  • Smooth skin
  • Reduce acne scarring
  • Increase skin elasticity
  • Deliver a more even skin tone
  • Brighten and refresh your skin
  • Diminish the effects of sun damage
  • Reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Restore volume to areas that may appear hollow, such as the temples, the lips, and under the eyes

PRP offers long-lasting, natural results with minimal risks. Because PRP comes directly from your body and contains no synthetic ingredients, the risk of adverse reactions is minimal, and treatment is safe for the vast majority of patients.

Your Mission Viejo PRP Injection Consultation

PRP in the OC

During your consultation for PRP, Mission Viejo injection specialists will assess your skin, listen to your concerns and goals for treatment, and ask you questions about your medical history to determine if you are a candidate. We will provide you with any information you need to prepare for your treatment so that you feel confident on the day of your appointment.

Your PRP Injection Procedure

Three Steps to a Younger Look

The PRP injection process takes less than an hour to perform and begins with a simple blood draw like you would receive at your doctor's office. Dr. Bolourian will then place your blood sample in a centrifuge to isolate the PRP from other contents. Once the plasma is prepared, he will meticulously inject your plasma into the targeted area.

PRP Injection Results

Gradual & Authentic

Following your PRP treatment, you will notice your skin gradually improving as damaged cells are replaced with newer, healthier ones. Your results will develop for approximately three months, in which time you'll see an increasing difference in the quality, elasticity, and appearance of your skin. Depending on the details of your concerns, you may need a series of treatments to achieve your best results. In this case, your treatments will be spaced two to three weeks apart. Results from PRP injections can last up to nine months and can be maintained indefinitely with follow-up treatment or other procedures.

PRP Injection Recovery and Aftercare

After PRP

Recovery after PRP injections is minimal, and most patients return to work the same day as their treatment. You may notice some mild swelling or bruising around the injection sites, but these minor side effects should resolve quickly.

Planning Your Treatment

How much does PRP cost?

The cost of PRP treatments depend on factors like the number of areas treated and the number of treatment sessions required. The American Academy of Dermatology Association estimates that most PRP facial rejuvenation treatments cost between $250 and $1,500 per treatment. The benefits of PRP make it a cost-effective alternative to cosmetic surgery, providing visible facial rejuvenation without the cost and downtime of surgical procedures. Once we have assessed your needs and goals at your consultation, we can provide you with a cost estimate for your personalized treatment plan.

PRP Injections Frequently Asked Questions

PRP is an excellent non-surgical treatment for firming the skin on the face. While it cannot produce such dramatic results as a surgical facelift, it does provide patients with noticeably firmer, healthier, younger-looking skin.

PRP and Botox work differently, and each offers its own set of benefits. However, PRP delivers entirely natural results and may be exceptionally beneficial for patients who are allergic to ingredients in Botox. Also, results from PRP injections last up to three times as long as those from Botox.

Improvement in skin texture and tone might be noticeable after the initial treatment and can last for several months. For sustained results, multiple sessions might be recommended, usually spaced several weeks apart.

PRP injections are administered with a narrow needle and are not associated with much discomfort. You may feel a pinprick or stinging sensation that passes quickly. A topical anesthetic can be applied to numb this sensation if desired. Most people find the PRP injection process very tolerable.

Because PRP is made from a sample of the patient's blood, it tends to be a safe treatment for most people. However, people with active infections, cancer, hematological disorders, chronic liver disease, thrombocytopenia, those who are pregnant or breastfeeding, and those taking certain medications may not be good candidates for PRP. We will carefully assess your candidacy to ensure a safe and effective treatment. If you are not a candidate for PRP therapy, you may benefit from other minimally invasive skin rejuvenation treatments such as dermal fillers, injectable neuromodulators (Botox), or laser skin resurfacing.

Insurance will not typically apply to PRP injections administered for cosmetic reasons.

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy was first developed to promote tissue healing following an injury or surgery. Since then, its benefits have been extended to the aesthetics realm, where PRP injections are used to boost collagen production and encourage cellular turnover for a more flawless, even complexion. PRP serum is created from a small sample of the patient's blood. The sample is processed in a centrifuge to separate out a high concentration of growth factors, and the resulting solution is administered in a series of injections. By directing this high concentration of growth factors to the skin, PRP therapy kicks off a rejuvenating process that diminishes the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, hyperpigmentation, laxity, and other common skin concerns.

Statistical and anecdotal evidence suggests a high patient satisfaction and success rate for PRP injections administered cosmetically. One peer-reviewed study on PRP injections for facial rejuvenation found a 48 to 60 percent improvement in periorbital dark circles, a 74 to 78 percent improvement in periorbital wrinkles, a 52 to 57 percent improvement in nasolabial folds, and a 52 to 61 percent improvement in skin rigidity.
