About PRP Therapy
Orlando, FL board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Armando Soto is proud to perform platelet-rich plasma therapy, also called PRP therapy at his plastic surgery center to help replenish your facial appearance. PRP therapy is one of the most sought-after cosmetic treatments in the aesthetic industry due to its natural origin and thrilling results. The treatment uses a patient's very own plasma to stimulate the skin, helping to diminish the appearance of wrinkles and improving other aspects, such as texture, tone, and overall skin health. PRP therapy is also sometimes performed in conjunction with microneedling for all-around skin rejuvenation. To learn more about PRP therapy for the skin, call Dr. Armando Soto in Orlando, FL to schedule a consultation. We are excited to discuss the benefits of PRP, as well as what it can do for your skin.
"Bridget and Amanda made a super weird and uncomfortable procedure quite easy! I was really nervous, but their calming manner and conversation relaxed me. The Geneveve treatment was completely painless and there was no down time. My significant other thoroughly enjoys the results as well."- K.M. / Yellowpages / Jun 26, 2017
"I absolutely love this office and the staff. I had a breast augmentation with breast lift a year ago with Dr. Soto and I couldn't be happier with the results, they look natural looking and I am so much more confident in my swimwear now. He is the best! Also, Amy the Nurse Practitioner is just amazing, I have gone to her for botox and filler. She is just so professional and charming. Having never done these procedures before, she did an excellent job of educating me about the different options and common known side effects and helped me to choose the right type and amount of filler/botox to give me the most natural look. I get so many compliments of how refreshed I look. I highly recommend this office for all your aesthetic needs! -Monique B."- M.B. / Yelp / Feb 07, 2020

"Love working with Amy! She always helps me get the results I am looking for and seems genuinely happy to help me!"- K.W. / Yellowpages / Dec 03, 2019
"I couldn’t be happier with not only my results but they way I was taken care of by Dr. Soto and his staff. I searched for months for a plastic surgeon. After finding Dr. Soto I knew he was the right one. I drive 3 hours round trip to see Dr. Soto and I wouldn’t have picked anyone else. I have had 2 surgeries by him and both were a complete success with great results. They answered all my questions, took the time to take my numerous phone calls and emails and never made me feel like I was bothering them. I followed their Pre and post-op instructions and have had no complications. Their night nurse is amazing and so caring. I truly feel like they I am family. I would recommend Dr. Soto for all your needs."- Anonymous / RateMDs / Nov 29, 2019
Women and men with moderate wrinkles and uneven skin tone are great candidates for PRP therapy. Since it promotes collagen production naturally, it's also a wonderful treatment choice for those seeking a nonsurgical method to refresh and tighten the skin without surgery. It is also a great treatment to add to other treatments, depending on what you are having addressed. Patients considering PRP therapy for the skin should be in good health, avoid tobacco use, and not have any known blood disorders.
After you're comfortably seated in one of our secluded minor procedure areas, a small amount of blood will be taken from one of your arms and put into a centrifuge machine. Most of the time, we remove around one vial of blood. After approximately 15 minutes in the centrifuge machine, the components of the blood separate and are then ready to be injected. We will load your rich plasma into a syringe and inject it into the predetermined locations. The procedure typically only takes a few minutes, but that can vary on a patient-to-patient basis.
What to Expect
Plasma from PRP therapy naturally promotes the production of collagen and elastin to reveal tauter, more youthful-appearing skin. As it uses your own blood, the risk of adverse or allergic reactions is basically nonexistent. You can expect your face to be a bit red following PRP therapy as traces of red blood cells can make it into the injection. Cold packs can be used on the injection area to minimize discomfort and swelling. We recommend you undergo treatments in 4 – 6-week intervals to maintain results.
Frequently Asked Questions
What does PRP therapy cost?
The cost for PRP varies by patient, depending on what is being treated (size of the area), as well as if it is being performed alone or in conjunction with another treatment (such as laser or microneedling). Dr. Soto will create your custom treatment plan and provide an estimated cost during your initial consultation.
Will the results last?
PRP therapy for the skin produces great results, and with an ongoing healthy skin care routine at home, the results from this procedure can last for 4 – 8 weeks. The benefit of this procedure is that it can be used with many different treatments and it does not require surgery or downtime. In addition, it is affordable. We recommend having PRP therapy treatments on a regular basis to keep your complexion looking healthy and vibrant.
Are there risks associated with this treatment?
There are little-known risks associated with PRP therapy. There may be some slight bruising and swelling in certain areas where blood was taken or the injections made, but these are temporary. It is a safe and effective nonsurgical way to rejuvenate your skin without the worry of downtime or risk.
Will PRP help bring back volume?
PRP therapy is not a treatment that helps replenish lost volume. It rejuvenates the appearance of the skin and helps promote collagen. If you wish to enhance the volume of your skin, such as the nasolabial folds or improve moderate wrinkles, our Orlando, FL office offers a number of injectable dermal fillers that can be used to improve facial contours. In fact, we often combine PRP therapy with an injectable filler for optimal results.
Is PRP therapy painful?
PRP injections create a small sting or pinch, similar to how it feels if you are getting BOTOX or a filler. We can apply a numbing ointment to the injection areas to help with any discomfort during treatment.
