What is PRP Treatment?
PRP is a treatment that involves the use of your body’s own platelets. PRP, short for platelet-rich plasma, is a high concentration of platelets that is obtained from drawing small amount of your blood and spinning it to separate the Platelets. It contains eight various growth factors that play a critical role in all aspects of the wound healing process and skin regeneration. By adding the platelets and growth factors to a treated area of the skin, it can offer enhanced regenerative effects, slowing or reversing the signs of aging.
PRP Microneedling and PRP Laser Resurfacing
Microneedling and Laser resurfacing treatments involve creating micro-injury to skin surface. This forces our body to healing the injured area. A controlled healing occurs to replace and repair the collagen and other connective tissue resulting in an improvement in skin texture and thickness. Adding PRP to laser resurfacing and microneedling treatments enhanced to overall efficacy of these treatments. Applying PRP over the laser treated skin or after microneedling provides a high availability of body’s own growth factor at the micro channels created by the laser or microneedling. This results in improved collagen production, faster healing and less downtime.
PRP Hair loss Treatment
PRP therapy for hair loss is a treatment that involves withdrawing patient’s own blood, spinning the blood to isolate the Platelet-Rich Plasma, and injecting it into the scalp. PRP contains essential proteins and growth factors that stimulate natural hair growth. This procedure is ideal for those with sparse hair who still have dormant hair follicles. Women experiencing hair loss/thinning hair are good candidates for this treatment. With complete baldness, the scalp is depleted of all hair follicles. PRP will not work in that situation.
