PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) can rejuvenate the skin by injecting your own blood plasma under your dermis, to stimulate cell growth and collagen production. PRP therapy has become quite a sought-after non-surgical procedure. It uses your body’s innate ability to heal itself by tapping into the regenerative properties of proteins such as stem cells and growth factors found in your own blood.

What is PRP?

Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) is an autologous concentrated preparation of platelets and the associated growth factors in a small volume of plasma. Platelets are a natural source of a number of growth factors in their natural and biologically-determined ratios.

What do Platelets do?

Platelets release growth factors which regulate the healing cascade by signaling to surrounding cells to repair damaged tissue and regenerate new tissue.

It can improve a patient’s facial complexion, texture and lost facial volume. One of the most common PRP treatment procedures is the PRP facial or vampire facial.

It is successfully being used to treat the following conditions:

Hair Loss

PRP hair treatment is an effective and proven treatment for hair loss. The PRP containing a high concentration of platelets is injected into areas of the scalp that show hair thinning. This stimulates hair growth by encouraging the rejuvenation of follicles and extending the growth cycle of the hair.

Scars and Acne Scars / Fine Lines and Wrinkles

It can improve a patient’s facial complexion, texture and lost facial volume. One of the most common PRP treatment procedures is the PRP facial or vampire facial.

Also used in Dentistry and Orthopedics for cell regeneration; PRP therapy perfectly complements many cosmetic treatments including: Botox, filler, lasers, and microneedling.

What to expect during PRP treatment:

PRP treatment typically takes about an hour. The first step includes drawing your blood, and then placing it into a centrifuge, where it is spun at speeds high enough to separate the different components of blood. The platelet rich plasma is then removed and injected into the area of treatment on your skin. The PRP can also be placed topically on the skin before, during or after procedures such as microneedling or laser for enhanced treatment or rapid recovery.

PRP continues to provide rejuvenation for up to three months after the initial injection. The 19 growth factors released by PRP go directly to work where they’ve been inserted, providing you with the maximum aesthetic benefits with little to no down time.

For optimal results with hair loss, we recommend, based on scientific research studies and expert opinion, a series of 4 treatments 1 month apart for the initiation of therapy and then 1-2 times a year thereafter for maintenance.
