Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy
A person’s own blood plasma that contains growth factors which can do a number of things including heal wounds and allow hair to grow. Platelet Rich Plasma is created by taking your own blood plasma and supplementing it with concentrated platelets. This plasma then gets injected into your scalp thereby allowing these growth factors to start working. Hair growth is then naturally stimulated.
Advantages of PRP Cosmetic
The widespread benefits of PRP have led to its use as a cosmetic treatment for the following issues:
- Toning and tightening skin
- Reducing wrinkles and fine lines
- Crow’s feet and dark circles under eyes
- Moderate collagen loss and volume depletion
- Acne scars
An overall improvement in skin hydration, texture and tone can be seen after just a few weeks of treatment. New collagen begins to develop after three to six weeks, and lessening of facial wrinkles and fine lines as well as increased volume occurs over the next three to six months. Cosmetic PRP effects may last from 12 months to two years, depending on the patient.
While PRP Cosmetic creates a longer-lasting improvements in the skin, it takes a bit of time to work. For patients wanting a more immediate effect, PRP Cosmetic can be combined with hyaluronic acid dermal fillers such as Juvederm or Restylane for quick volume correction.
