What is PRP Therapy?
PRP Therapy is platelet-rich plasma therapy. Platelets are the component of your blood that the body uses to heal after an injury. In PRP Therapy, your own platelets are gathered via a simple blood draw, and then strategically re-injected back into your skin to boost your body’s recovery systems. Athletes have been using PRP Therapy for years to bounce back quickly from injuries developed during gameplay or practice. Now, clinicians are using PRP therapy to address dermatology and cosmetic issues.
Because PRP Therapy uses your own blood products, it’s well tolerated by most people. It’s also the reason the treatment has a Halloween-themed nickname, the vampire facial. We promise you that no supernatural creatures are involved in this treatment.
Say Yes to Better Skin Tone and Goodbye to Wrinkles and Fine Lines
PRP Therapy is used to address some of the most common beauty concerns: fine lines and wrinkles on the face, especially in the areas surrounding the eyes and mouth. It has proven to be very effective. In a 2010 study published in the Journal of Drugs in Dermatology showed that PRP Therapy improved skin wrinkles, texture, elasticity, volume and skin tone. The results were impressive. Patients reported an 82% improvement in skin tone, 52% improvement in wrinkle appearance, 87% improvement in general appearance, and 100% satisfaction with the treatment outcomes.
PRP Therapy for Thinning Hair: An All-Natural Way to Encourage Hair Growth
PRP Therapy has also proven to be highly effective for people who are experiencing thinning hair or hair loss. The procedure is essentially the same, with the administration area being targeted to areas of concern on the scalp. Treatments are generally performed monthly for at least three months; results appear at first as a diminishment of hair loss, followed by hair regrowth. Hair regrowth patterns are generally early and result in thicker, longer hair. PRP therapy is often used in combination with topical hair growth treatments.
Considering PRP Therapy? Here’s What You Should Expect
Many people choose PRP therapy because it has no significant side effects aside from mild swelling, redness & sensitivity near the injections site, which are common to all injectable treatments. That being said, PRP therapy is not for everyone. A complimentary consultation with our doctor or Aesthetic Nurse Specialist will determine if this treatment is the best fit for you.
