Platelet-rich plasma therapy is a 100% natural way to harness your body’s own regenerative powers. In just 20 minutes, this treatment helps reverse the signs of aging and sun damage. It can also be used to aid in the treatment of thinning hair.
How does it work?
- Your blood is drawn normally, just as it would be done in your PCP’s office.
- The blood is then purified in a centrifuge to extract the plasma.
- The platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is then injected into the areas in need of treatment using microneedles for maximum patient comfort and precision, stimulating your natural regenerative process.
Since the PRP is full of growth proteins, skin cells begin to produce more collagen and elastin. We use needles that are finer in diameter than a human hair, for maximum patient comfort.
PRP can treat:
- Wrinkles and fine lines
- Sun damage
- Poor skin texture
- Acne scars and other areas with light scarring
- Skin discoloration
Mild improvement will be noticeable within the first few weeks, with full correction occurring at the 4-6 month mark. Most patients will require several treatments to achieve their desired results.
