What is PRP?​

Generally used to help the healing process after injuries or surgeries, Platelet Rich Plasma therapy are considered an emerging aesthetic solution for hair loss and skin rejuvenation. This treatment relies on the healing power of one of our body’s vital regenerative cells. The released growth factors in the treatment area help our bodies accelerate healing, by regulating inflammation and repairing blood vessels, and support the healthy rebuilding of new skin. PRP injections appear to help reduce hair loss and promote hair growth by prolonging the growing phase of the hair cycle. Patients report improvement when used to treat signs of aging, such as wrinkles, sagging skin, and dark circles under the eyes.

TREATMENT STEP BY STEP

PRE TREATMENT

A highly trained medical professional will review your medical records and determine if regenerative injections can help with your concerns. The risks and benefits, contraindicated medical conditions or medications, life-style, hair and skin care routine, are also reviewed. In case you are a good candidate and decide to proceed, your expert clinician will tailor a treatment plan and discuss what you need to do to prepare for treatment. For example, you may need to stop taking certain medications, vitamins, or supplements, before the treatment. Eating well before getting the injections may help you to avoid feeling lightheaded. It is important therefore that you write down all of your questions or concerns, make a list of your current medications and supplements, and answer the medical questionnaire completely and thoroughly.

DURING YOUR TREATMENT

First the blood is collected in a tube, which is then spun in a centrifuge. The process separates the platelet rich plasm, which is then collected into a syringe and injected into the treatment area of the skin (i.e., scalp, undereye area). Clients report feeling only mild pressure at the PRP injection area. Nevertheless, to make you feel even more comfortable, a topical numbing lidocaine cream is applied to your scalp before injection. A favorite relaxation technique and the calm, soothing environment will help to improve your comfort.

POST TREATMENT

Treatment is generally well-tolerated. You may notice some soreness and bruising in the treated area. After the PRP injections, you should avoid washing the treated area. Your medical provider will discuss other post-care instructions and home care tips to prolong the desirable effects of your treatment.

BEFORE & AFTER

FAQ

Most frequent questions and answers

Tens of millions of Americans have male- or female-pattern baldness. For many others the circles under the eyes are the first signs of aging. PRP is emerging as an effective solution to both these concerns. It’s appealing also for the fact that it poses virtually no side effects given that it is generated from the patient’s own blood. Plasma is part of your blood that’s mostly made of water and protein and plays a role in healing. The PRP treatment consists of drawing a small amount of blood, centrifuging it to separate plasma from blood and concentrating it, and then injecting the platelet rich plasma into the area with hair loss or skin concern. Once platelets are in the area that’s being treated, they break down and release ‘growth factors’, which help the cells repair and grow.

For skin and hair, including the under eye area, PRP injections seem to show the best results when given as a series of treatments. An example can be, a combination of one initial treatment per month for the first three months, and 2-4 maintenance treatments per year.

It can take several weeks for PRP injections to start working and up to 6 months to notice the full effects. Furthermore, you may need several sessions to see results.

You may notice natural improvement in under eye dark circles, skin texture, volume loss, leading to higher levels of skin firmness and elasticity, and even tone. Within the first few months of treatment, you may notice that you are losing less hair and gradually about 30% regrowth in thinning areas.
