What is PRP Therapy?

If you’re on the lookout for a natural way to treat fine lines, wrinkles, volume loss, and hair loss, platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy can be a great option. This treatment uses platelets from your own blood to promote skin healing and stimulate the production of collagen. It can restore your confidence without surgery. Let’s take a closer look at how PRP therapy works.

How PRP Therapy Works?

Before a PRP treatment, one of our expert providers will apply a topical anesthetic to your face and any other treatment areas. Then, they’ll draw your blood and spin it in a centrifuge to isolate your PRP. Next, the expert provider will apply the PRP solution to your skin with microneedling and/or an injection.

While treatment plans vary from patient to patient, we typically require that clients over 40 opt for 3 treatments spaced 4 to 6 weeks apart. Those who are younger may achieve their desired results with just 1 treatment. Maintenance treatments every 6 to 12 months are strongly recommended to maintain your results

Which Areas can be Treated with PRP Therapy?

  • Fine lines and creases on forehead
  • Hair loss
  • Crepiness of the upper eyelid
  • Dark circles and crepey skin under the eyes
  • Smile lines and open pores
  • Nasolabial folds

What Results Will I See?

Patients treated with PRP therapy often see: 

  • A rejuvenated appearance.
  • Smoother fine lines and wrinkles.
  • A more even skin tone.
  • An improvement in hyperpigmentation and scarring. 
  • A “plumper” look.
  • Thicker hair.

How Long Does a Typical Treatment Take?

Most PRP therapy treatments take about an hour to complete.

Is There Any Downtime?

After PRP therapy, some patients experience a bit of redness, swelling, puffiness, and itchiness. Fortunately, these side effects are short lived and resolve quickly on their own. Patients are welcome to resume work and their daily activities right away.

Who Should Avoid PRP Therapy?

You should avoid PRP Therapy if you have:

Low platelet count in blood

Local infection at procedure site

Bloodstream infection

Active cancer 

Pregnant or breast-feeding mothers

Avoid Anti-Inflammatory (NSAIDs) medication 7 days prior to your procedure
