What is PRP Therapy?
Boston, MA dermatologist Dr. Vladyslava Doktor is pleased to offer platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy at her Boston, MA practice to help rejuvenate your facial appearance. PRP therapy is a highly sought-after cosmetic procedure in the aesthetic industry due to its natural origin and promising results. This procedure uses a patient's own plasma to stimulate the skin, decreasing the prevalence of fine lines. Men and women from the Boston, Newton, and Natick areas looking for more information on PRP therapy and the benefits it provides can contact Skin Center Boston to schedule a consultation.
Who Can Benefit from PRP Therapy?
Men and women in the Boston, Dover, and Dedham, MA areas who would like to improve the tone and texture of their complexion are typically ideal candidates for PRP therapy. Since PRP therapy promotes the natural production of collagen, it's also a great treatment choice for refreshing tired or dull-looking skin. Since this procedure uses a patient's own plasma, it's important to discuss any blood disorders, skin conditions, or anemia with dermatologist Dr. Vladyslava Doktor to ensure that it is safe to undergo PRP therapy. Once medical conditions and desired outcomes are discussed, Dr. Doktor and her team will verify candidacy and set up treatments.
Perfect for Sherborn, Brookline, and Boston, MA men and women who want to naturally rejuvenate their skin, PRP therapy uses your own blood to create a healthier and brighter complexion, as well as a beautiful and glowing appearance with little downtime and no surgery. These stunning results are provided at Skin Center Boston in Boston, MA by dermatologist Dr. Vladyslava Doktor. Call today for more information!
How Does PRP Therapy Work?
Once comfortably seated in one of our secluded treatment rooms, a small amount of blood will be taken from one of our patient's arms. Usually, we take about one vial worth of blood. The blood will be placed in a centrifuge machine, which will spin the blood for about 15 minutes separating the components of blood. We will place the condensed plasma into a sterile syringe and inject it into the predetermined locations on the patient. The PRP process typically only takes approximately five minutes, but that can vary on a patient-to-patient basis. Since we use a patient's own blood, the chances of a bad reaction to the procedure are very unlikely.
What Should Patients Expect After PRP Therapy?
The plasma used in PRP therapy naturally promotes collagen production and elastin to create tauter, more youthful-looking skin in our patients. As it utilizes a patient's own blood, there is no risk of allergic or adverse reactions. Patients should expect their face to be a little red following the procedure as some traces of red blood cells can make it into the plasma injection. However, cold packs can be used on the treatment site to reduce any discomfort or minor swelling. Following their appointment, most patients should be able to go back to work the next day and resume normal activities, like exercise, within a few days. Dr. Doktor recommends follow-up treatments every 4 – 6 weeks.

"I was looking for a Dermatologist to do my first filling (botox), I was nervous as I wanted to keep a natural look, keep my expression while smiling but getting ready of the annoying wrinkles! One friend recommended me Dr. Vlada. She was so kind and patient with me! As she saw that I was apprehensive because it was my first time she did the treatment in two steps with a break of two weeks, so we could see better how the muscle reacted and retouch if needed. That gave me another level of comfort and trust! And loved the results!! Doctors for me shouldn’t be just professionals on what they do, they should also hear the concerns and wishes of the patients and adapt to that! If you are like me, you are in good hands with Dr. Vlada!"- A.D. / Google / Jan 21, 2021
