PRP is a type of regenerative therapy that uses a patient’s own blood (specifically the platelets within the blood), to regenerate collagen and other microscopic structures that support fresh, healthy looking skin. Because PRP comes from a patient’s own blood, there is virtually no risk of any kind of adverse (allergic) reaction. Platelets are also part of the body’s natural defense system, so they also help reduce the possibility of viral and bacterial infection.
This innovative facial therapy is performed by using a profractional laser treatment or Microneedling to create channels within the skin barrier. The high platelet concentration plasma is then massaged onto the skin and enters the dermal layer of the skin through the open channels. Platelets contain proteins called growth factors that activate existing cells and stimulate local stem cells to produce new cells and structures.
After a PRP application, the amount of collagen within the dermal layer of the skin (cellular density) goes up, so does the skin’s ability to retain moisture — which leads to younger-looking skin.
PRP can be used to stimulate the activity of the hair follicles and promote new hair growth through directly injecting the plasma to the affected area. For those that suffer from thinning hair, this treatment is new option to regenerate hair growth. For optimal results, patients are advised to receive four treatments, one month apart and maintenance treatments every 3 to 6 months.
