About PRP Therapy
Our Wayland, MA team is pleased to offer platelet-rich plasma therapy (PRP) at Forever Slender MedSpa 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. It can also be combined with microneedling for the popular vampire facial. If you are interested in PRP therapy, contact Forever Slender MedSpa in Wayland, MA to schedule a private consultation. We will be happy to discuss all the benefits of PRP and how it can help to improve your skin.

"Today I had my first cool sculpting treatment. Jayne and Alexis have been amazing. They both have been encouraging and really good at explaining all that I might feel and expect in the coming weeks. It hasn’t been painful. My skin feels a bit sensitive if rubbed but otherwise all is perfect. I will post again in 6 weeks after my second treatment. I have also taken measurements and photos and will keep you posted on my results. As of today 4/11/23 I am happy."- D.K. / Yelp / Apr 10, 2023

Men and women who have dynamic wrinkles, volume loss, uneven skin tone, and droopy skin 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. Inform one of our aestheticians 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. Typically 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. This process 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.
Frequently Asked Questions
How much does PRP therapy cost?
The cost of your PRP therapy treatment session will be determined after our team assesses the size of the area being treated and decides whether you will be combining the procedure with complementary services. During your consultation, we will come up with a treatment plan and an estimated cost, and we can also discuss all your payment options.
How long do results from PRP therapy last?
The results of PRP therapy typically last 4 – 8 weeks. Results vary from patient to patient according to many outside factors including their skin care regimen. A major benefit of PRP therapy is the lack of invasiveness or need for surgery.
What are the risks and complications of PRP therapy?
When PRP therapy (with or without microneedling) is performed by a trained professional, the risks are very minor. Potential risks include light swelling and bruising.
Will PRP help replenish volume?
Although PRP therapy produces stunning results over time, it cannot increase volume in areas like the cheeks and lips. If you wish to add volume or contour to certain areas of your face, speak with our team about dermal fillers during your consultation. Fillers and PRP therapy can be used together for a dynamic, radiant result.
Is PRP therapy painful?
PRP therapy feels very similar to the injection of a dermal filler or BOTOX but includes the plasma extraction process. Patients typically feel only minor discomfort during both steps. If you are worried about discomfort, we can provide you with a local anesthetic prior to your procedure.
