PRP – PLATELET RICH PLASMA
PRP Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy injections now offer a new approach to healthy anti-aging and wellness. After a process of collecting platelets from a patient, the resultant PRP is then injected under the skin in strategic areas of the face. The PRP Therapy activates new skin cell growth and will, over time, lead to stronger collagen support structure. This highly concentrated solution of platelets full of growth factors and active proteins naturally stimulates your own skin to create new collagen, adding healthy volume and minimizing the appearance of wrinkles, all without artificial injections or toxins.
PRP Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy for hair regrowth is an in-office, non-surgical, autologous treatment derived from the patient’s own blood that can be performed in about an hour. PRP contains growth factors and cytokines that have been shown to be responsible for stimulating and enhancing hair follicle function. The scalp is prepared with antiseptic solution. Small injections of the PRP deliver the powerful platelet-derived growth factors into the skin at the level of the weak follicles.
When can you expect results from PRP Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy and how long do they last?
We can measure improvements in Hair Mass Index months before the results are visible to the naked eye. Increases in Hair Mass Index predict how much visual improvement the patient is likely to see in the months to come. It takes six to twelve months to judge the results of PRP “visually” in the mirror or with standardized photos. Measurements are taken every three months, so the plateau phase of improvement can be tracked. When Hair Mass Index starts to decline, the patient’s next PRP is planned.
