Platelet-rich plasma, or PRP, is a solution created from a small sample of your own blood. The formulation harnesses the power of your innate healing ability and puts it to use to help you move closer to your aesthetic goals.
Your blood is made of a mixture of liquids and solids. Platelets are among the solid components, and work to enable blood clotting. Your platelets also contain a special type of protein called growth factors, which serve to trigger cellular growth.
PRP injections are created by drawing a small sample of your blood and spinning it in a centrifuge until the solids are separated from the liquid plasma. The platelets are reintroduced to the plasma and the solution is drawn into a syringe.
A PRP facelift is a nonsurgical procedure that can help you look more youthful and well-rested. The process involves injecting small amounts of PRP into specific areas of your face where additional volume is desired.
During youth, your face is padded with a thick layer of collagen. As you age you naturally lose much of that thick padding. That lost volume changes the contouring of your face, making you look older.
A PRP face-lift works by prompting your body to create new collagen, which smooths lines and wrinkles and restores lost volume. It’s a great option for men and women looking for anti-aging treatment who aren’t ready for surgical intervention or dermal fillers.
Many different factors contribute to thinning hair, which is common among men and women in middle age and beyond. For those who are looking for thicker, fuller hair, PRP therapy can deliver impressive results.
The process involves a series of shallow PRP injections in the areas of your scalp where thinning is most pronounced. Once introduced into your tissues, PRP goes to work triggering increased circulation and reducing inflammation.
Inflammation is a known contributor in hair loss, so stopping that process can slow hair thinning. The numerous growth factors in PRP prompt your hair follicles to create new cells, leading to thicker and fuller hair.
It may take a series of treatments before you’ll see the full effects of PRP hair restoration. The treated follicles need time to go through the normal growth phases, after which you should see a marked improvement in the thickness and fullness of your hair.
