PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma)

PRP treatments can be combined with several skin rejuvenation services to enhance their effect and promote collagen production.

What is PRP?

PRP stands for “Platelet-Rich Plasma.” It is a substance that promotes healing and is created by isolating plasma from the patient’s blood and concentrating it. A PRP treatment begins with a simple blood draw and from start to finish can be completely within 1 hour. Blood is a spun in a unique centrifuge that separates plasma and platelets. The plasma, now highly concentrated with rich platelets, is collected in a syringe and injected back into the tissues where needed. Growth factors stimulate stem cells to create new, youthful tissue, including areas in the face, scalp, muscles, and joints.

WHat is PRP Used For?

PRP can be used for a wide variety of cosmetic applications. When paired with a microneedling treatment, which breaks the skin, PRP is used to increase the effectiveness in treating skin concerns such as hyperpigmentation, scarring and acne scars, fine lines and wrinkles, or uneven texture.

PRP is also used to treat hair loss by injecting the substance into the scalp. The treatment encourages hair growth and prevents hair loss, so it is used for patients dealing with genetic hair loss including androgenic alopecia (male pattern baldness).
