What is Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)? Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is a natural product composed of your own blood. PRP is used for treatments because it contains a number of biochemicals that stimulate cell growth and healing. Your own blood is drawn from your arm and spun in a centrifuge to remove the red blood cells. Platelet-rich plasma is then ready for use in rejuvenation, by being re-injected back into the treatment area. PRP can be used for non-surgical hair regeneration and skin rejuvenation in cosmetic dermatology. Treatment areas: Face and scalp Top reasons to consider PRP: Facial rejuvenation – fine lines, laxity, and pigment variation. Hair restoration – most of the PRP will be injected into the level where most hair follicles reside. At the hair margins, microneedling and superficial PRP are used to stimulate growth at the frontal hairline. Scar treatments – surgical scars and acne scars. Deeper microneedling is done in these treatments and the PRP can be applied topically. What are the benefits of PRP? Restore hair loss. PRP for hair loss is ideal for people with concern about their hair pattern or density. Reduce wrinkles and deep creases. Diminish acne scars and improve complexion. Safe, non-surgical procedure. Recovery process after PRP: Patients may experience some pain, bruising or swelling after treatment. PRP treatments for hair loss are typically done approximately two months apart, then again after another 4-6 months.
