Would You Like a Way to Facilitate Improved Results and a Speedy Recovery From Your Cosmetic Procedures?
PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) – “Serum of Youth”
PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) is a unique treatment option for various medical and aesthetic concerns. Dr. Karolak has successfully combined PRP with both surgical and non-surgical treatments at his practice for years with exceptional results. PRP is derived from a patients’ own autologous cells and is used to leverage the patients’ natural ability to heal from surgery and laser treatments.
How Does PRP Work?
Using a tiny needle, blood is drawn from the patient and spun in a centrifuge to separate and concentrate the healing cells (platelets, growth factors, and stem cells). The concentrated platelets can then be:
1. Applied topically to the surface of the skin during microneedling and/or lasers to decrease downtime and improve skin quality.
2. Injected directly into the skin to help treat scarring, skin texture, fine lines, wrinkles, and pigmentation irregularities.
3. Mixed with your own fat for facial volume replacement and acne scar treatments.
Platelets are involved in the clotting and wound-healing process, making them especially effective following surgical procedures. Dr. Karolak often pairs PRP treatments after facelift or neck lift procedures to decrease downtime and minimize any potential scarring.
Am I a Good Candidate
PRP treatments may be worth considering if you’d like to get the most out of your upcoming cosmetic procedure. PRP is a non-invasive treatment option that helps improve the results of your treatment while also facilitating a speedy recovery. Because platelets are derived from your own cells, there is no risk for an allergic reaction.
PRP is safe and effective for nearly any patient considering it. During your initial consultation, Dr. Karolak will speak with you about the benefits of PRP and determine if the treatment is right for you.
How Long Does A Typical Treatment Take?
PRP treatments don’t often add much time to your original procedure. The harvesting process takes just a few short minutes, and the platelets are separated in the lab while your procedure is being done. PRP can be applied topically or reinjected into problem areas. In most cases, you can expect PRP treatments to take an additional 20-30 minutes. Dr. Karolak performs all PRP procedures to ensure an optimal outcome.
What Results Will I See?*
Results from PRP for aesthetic applications are typically gradual and progressive. PRP naturally stimulates your body’s own collagen production over the course of 1-3 months. Patients can see long-lasting results from PRP for upwards of 6+ months. In many cases for patients with scars from acne or trauma, the areas can be visibly improved indefinitely.
Dr. Karolak is an artist, there is no doubt. It is clear that he holds himself to a very high standard of practice and results. Aside from these important qualities, he is also compassionate, warm, and exceedingly supportive before, during, and after your procedure.
I will never hesitate to recommend him to anyone. Just wonderful.*

Is There Any Downtime?
On its own, PRP treatment actually helps to decrease downtime. The amount of recovery you incur solely depends on the treatment PRP is paired with. For example, PRP for acne may not have any downtime at all while PRP after a surgical procedure may require 1-2 weeks of recovery. Dr. Karolak will discuss every aspect of your upcoming procedure and customize a recovery plan at the time of your initial consultation.
