PRP therapy is a solution for naturally rejuvenated skin. Treatment with PRP therapy can also be done to maximize the results of other skin care treatment performed by a dermatologist, and also for hair loss and hair rejuvenation.
What is PRP Therapy?
PRP (platelet rich plasma) therapy uses platelets from the patient’s own blood to rejuvenate the skin. Plasma contains proteins and other factors to support cell growth. When placed into the skin or scalp, platelet-rich-plasma is thought to have many benefits to promote healing for healthier and stronger skin and hair. ACell is an extra cellular matrix product that contains multiple carbohydrates, collagens, proteins, and other components that facilitate a regeneration process. It is used to treat different wounds or to stimulate hair growth when combined with PRP.
Who is a Candidate for PRP Therapy?
Candidates can choose to have PRP therapy to maximize the results of treatment with microneedling or for those who might desire to improve their hair. Candidates for PRP therapy are those who wish to improve their skin to repair damage along with lines and wrinkles. Treatment with microneeding and PRP therapy is often used on the face and neck for stronger skin. Meeting with a dermatologist can help you decide if PRP therapy is right for you and your concerns.
What to Expect During Treatment
PRP therapy begins by taking blood from the patient, similar to having your blood drawn. Next, the blood is prepared in a centrifuge to separate the plasma from other components. Plasma can be administered to the skin through injection, or with microneedling. Microneedling creates tiny punctures in the skin, allowing for easy absorption of products, or in this case, plasma. When combining these two treatments, extra benefits can be received for optimal skin improvement. One session with PRP therapy usually takes 30-60 minutes. A series of three treatments is recommended for optimal results.
After treatment with PRP therapy, you might notice an immediate improvement with a radiant glow. During the next few months, improvement will continue as new collagen and stronger tissue is formed.
