Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) contains growth factors that improve your skin and help with wrinkles, acne scars, and other concerns. Dr. Balinger offers PRP injections for men and women in Houston, Conroe, and the surrounding areas of Texas.
What Are PRP Injections?
PRP injections are treatments that use components of your own blood to improve skin health. Platelet-rich plasma contains growth factors that stimulate the development of new cells in the area where it is injected. PRP is preferred by patients who want to avoid synthetic products for their anti-aging needs or who may have a history of allergic reactions to the active ingredients in dermal fillers and injectables.
How Much Does PRP Injections Cost?
Your cost is based upon the treatment plan that you develop during the consultation with Dr. Balinger. We offer free initial consultations at our offices in Houston and Conroe, as well as financing options for our patients.

How Are PRP Injections Performed?
The first step of our PRP injections is to extract the platelet-rich plasma from your blood. This is done by taking a small amount of blood from one of your veins, similar to what is done when you have blood draws for lab work. The blood is processed in a machine that separates the PRP from other components. The PRP is drawn into a syringe and injected into your skin.
What is Recovery Like After PRP Injections?
PRP injections do not add any downtime to your primary treatment. You can have the injections as a standalone procedure and have no downtime. You may notice some localized swelling at each injection site. This is related to the needle being inserted into your skin, and not the platelet-rich-plasma.
How Long Will PRP Injections Results Last?
Dr. Balinger recommends that you have no more than three PRP injections in any given area of your face every six months. A typical schedule of treatment is a series of injections every four to six weeks, but this varies by patient. Dr. Balinger helps you determine a schedule of treatments that will meet the specific needs of your skin.
