PRP
(PLATELET RICH PLASMA PROCEDURE)

PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) is derived from the serum portion of your blood, containing high levels of platelets that are rich in growth factors. These growth factors are necessary to initiate and stimulate tissue regeneration and repair at the site of treatment. This treatment is great for:

  • Hair growth
  • Hair thickness
  • Scar reduction
  • Improving skin tone and thickness
  • Reducing fine lines and wrinkles
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Acne and blemishes reduction

We recommend a series of treatments for best outcome results, spaced about a month apart.

Not only is it a great procedure for anyone who wants an even tone and fresher appearance to their skin, but also, it’s been proven to help with hair restoration! A natural way to boost your hair follicle growth! By injecting your own plasma into your scalp, we are able to stimulate new and thicker hair growth in areas where hair is thinning.

What to Expect?

  • A small amount of blood is drawn, similar to that of a basic lab test.
  • Your blood is placed into a centrifuge and spun at a very rapid rate to separate the platelets from other components of the blood, which isolates the platelet rich plasma (PRP).
  • The PRP is then ready to be injected into the desired areas.

PRP is safe! It has been used clinically for over a decade in the dental, orthopedic and reconstructive surgery fields to aid in healing. Since it’s derived from your own blood, drawn at the time of treatment, there is no risk of allergic or inflammatory immune response!
