~Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) 

Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) injections use your own blood platelets to stimulate collagen production, cell renewal, and tissue regeneration—improving your skin’s tone, texture, and quality. Sometimes known as the “Vampire Facial”, PRP injection therapy has long been used by orthopedic doctors and reconstructive surgeons to encourage more rapid healing without the need for surgery. Now, we’re realizing the amazing effects this same treatment can have when it comes to things like cosmetic facial rejuvenation and hair loss.

PRP injection treatments can be performed on your face, neckline, scalp, and hands and are ideal for:

  • Mature or aging skin

  • Hair loss (alopecia) and thinning hair (hereditary and non-hereditary)

  • Scarring

  • Chronic wounds

*Schedule an appointment to receive a thorough skin assessment and determine the right facial and skincare regimen for you!

PRP Hair Restoration - PRP FOR HAIR GROWTH 

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy for hair loss is a three-step medical treatment in which a person’s blood is drawn, processed, and then injected into the scalp.

PRP is a treatment that is use to accelerate healing in various areas of the body. It may help vitalize hair growth.

These treatments are scheduled two months apart followed by annual maintenance treatments.

What Is platelet rich plasma Injections ?

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a substance that’s thought to promote healing when injected. Plasma is a component of your blood that contains special “factors,” or proteins, that help your blood to clot. It also contains proteins that support cell growth. Researchers have produced PRP by isolating plasma from blood and concentrating it.

How does PRP work for hair restoration?

PRP treatments can enhance hair restoration and other cosmetic plastic surgery procedures. The platelets, one type of blood cells, contain growth factors that can trigger cell proliferation, speed healing and stimulate tissue regeneration in the treated area.

How do I need to prepare for my PRP injection treatment?

If you are not accustomed to drinking plenty of water (eight glasses per day), we ask patients to stay extra hydrated one week prior to coming in. Additionally, please avoid Advil, wine, and anything else that might thin the blood. We need high platelet levels in order to deliver optimal results.

How long do the results last?

Results will vary from patient to patient depending on lifestyle and the severity of the condition treated. Once the initial three treatments are completed, patients should do one treatment 1-2 times a year in order to maintain results over the long term.

When can I return to work and begin normal activities?

You will have multiple “blips” (small mosquito bite-like bumps) on your face for the first day and may experience redness and mild to moderate swelling depending on the area treated. You will need to refrain from wearing any makeup for the first 24 hours following your treatment.
