The 40s tend to be when the signs of aging become hard to ignore as wrinkles grow more pronounced and fine lines start being tricky to look away from. There are numerous products available that can serve as a cover and give the illusion of wrinkle-free skin, but far fewer actually try and solve the problem directly. This is why platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy for the skin is so useful—it enriches and restores the skin rather than being a cheap filler or cosmetic solution.
How to Keep Looking Young at 40
Restore Youthful Appearances with PRP Therapy
PRP treatments give anti aging benefits by taking advantage of your body’s natural restoration mechanisms. Your blood is filled with platelet-derived growth factors that help spur healing and rejuvenation in response to injuries; the strength of the restoration is proportional to the amount of platelets that get activated. PRP therapy draws a small amount of blood from the body, spins it in a centrifuge to isolate the platelets, adds a bit of a nutrient solution, and injects the result into targeted locations on your face. This tricks the body into triggering a large restoration response and that will begin mending various imperfections in that section of the skin, such as wrinkles or acne scars.
Treat Fine Lines and Wrinkles
The skin is supported by various elastin and collagen fibers that naturally get injured over time as the skin compresses and extends. Age-related wrinkles occur when these fibers don’t get repaired properly, but the error isn’t technically an “injury,” so the body won’t try and fix it. PRP forces the matter by making the rejuvenation mechanism think the wrinkled part of the skin has been damaged and will act to restore it.
PRP Therapy Improves Production of Collagen
When used on the face, PRP treatments make the body think that a large injury has occurred. In response, the body starts producing extra collagen and elastin to try and remedy the wound. Since there is no actual wound, these substances instead join up with the improperly-repaired collagen and elastin fibers which make up the wrinkle. This extra support helps fill out the wrinkle and smooth it over. Collagen production also naturally declines with age, and the 40s are when this starts getting more obvious. The boost produced by PRP therapy on the skin helps partially compensate for this loss.
