Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)

What is Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)?

Platelet rich plasma refers to plasma found in blood, which is rich in growth factors and enhances the health and growth of new cells. In our clinic, we use PRP for rejuvenation of both the skin and hair.

How Does PRP Work?

A small amount of blood is drawn from the patient’s arm (between 15 and 30 mL). The blood is placed in a centrifuge machine that spins and separates the platelets into plasma from the blood. The Plasma is then injected into the patient’s scalp for hair rejuvenation. As for micro-needling, the plasma is used topically as a glide for the passes of the mirco-needling procedure. We also love to use PRP after laser treatments to heal the skin more quickly!

PRP increases the speed of the healing time and helps provide optimum results. With procedures like Micro-Needling, Halo, and CO2, the plasma is used post-treatment as a topical to speed recovery.

What Are The Benefits Of PRP?

For hair rejuvenation, PRP enhances the health and size of shrinking hair follicles and thereby slows or stops the progression of hair loss. It stimulates the production of new hair follicles and increases hair growth. When used with skin-rejuvenation, Platelet Rich Plasma stimulates collagen production to help keep skin smooth, plump and firm. And when used with Micro-needling, Halo, and CO2 treatments, PRP helps to decrease the healing time.
