What to Expect


Before your PRP injections in Algonquin at CaTara, you'll meet with one of our providers for a consultation. During this time, we will discuss your skin concerns and what you want to achieve. Based on your consultation, we will determine if PRP injections are right for you.


Your provider will start by applying a medical-grade numbing cream. This ensures that the procedure is pain-free. We will draw a small amount of your blood and extract the plasma for your treatment. We like to refer to PRP as “liquid gold” because it has a yellow color and the enrichment it can provide your skin. Once we prep the PRP, your medical provider will then strategically inject the PRP into the targeted areas of your skin. We also apply PRP to the exterior of your skin for maximum effect.


Results can be seen almost immediately after your treatment. You will also continue to see improvements in your skin in the weeks that follow your PRP injections. We recommend 3 treatments over 3 months to maximize your results.
