What Is Platelet-Rich Plasma?

Platelets are tiny, disc-shaped cell fragments produced in your bone marrow. They promote healing and repair damaged tissues throughout your body with growth factors that promote the natural immune response and regeneration processes.

Your PRP treatment starts with drawing a small amount of blood, then placing it in a centrifuge to separate the platelets. This process concentrates the PRP, so it contains three to five times more platelets than in circulating blood. Injecting it into targeted areas will encourage new cell and tissue growth.

What Makes PRP Treatments Safe and Effective?

PRP treatments pose little to no risks because the cells come from your blood. The risk of allergic reactions or rejection is significantly lower compared to other injectable treatments because PRP is all-natural and biocompatible.

Following PRP injections, it’s normal to experience tenderness, bruising, and mild swelling or irritation at the treatment and blood withdrawal sites. These symptoms will usually resolve after a few days. We encourage our patients to keep the injection sites clean and dry until the wounds have completely healed to help reduce the risk of infection.

How Does PRP Work for Skin Restoration?

Your skin becomes thinner and less resilient with age and collagen loss. You may experience wrinkles, sagging, and volume loss as a result.

PRP stimulates your body’s natural healing abilities, brightening your complexion and minimizing fine lines and dark undereye hollows.

You can also pair PRP injections with complementary non-surgical treatments, including microdermabrasion, dermal fillers, and Botox® injections, for more comprehensive results.

How Does PRP Work for Hair Restoration?

Once your hair follicles go dormant, over-the-counter products, vitamins, and supplements cannot stimulate them back into action.

If your formerly lush, full head of hair is now thin and sparse, you don’t have to hide your balding scalp with hats, scarves, or wigs anymore. PRP safely and effectively treats male and female pattern baldness. A PRP hair restoration involves injecting the PRP directly into the areas of the scalp where hair loss is prevalent. The increased blood supply to the hair follicles will make your hair look healthier and fuller over time.
