What is PRP Rejuvenation?

PRP can be injected as part of a microneedling session or facial, providing a natural boost in the skin’s vitality and luminosity with minimal discomfort or downtime. Because PRP is taken from the patient’s body, there is virtually zero risk of an allergic reaction, making the therapy safe and viable for everyone. PRP helps to stimulate new collagen growth, firming and hydrating the skin from within. It can also aid in reducing lines, wrinkles, and creases, combating volume loss in the tear troughs, cheeks, and temples, and smoothing away acne and surgical scars.

What is PRP for Hair Loss?

PRP has been shown to be beneficial for patients in the early stages of hair loss and for those that prefer a non-invasive, non-surgical alternative to FUE or FUT hair restoration. The hair follicles can be stimulated to produce stronger, thicker hairs while circulation in the scalp is optimized. With repeated treatments, areas of depletion can begin to support fuller locks and tresses. Innovative devices now exist to administer PRP to the deeper layers of the scalp for maximum effectiveness.

What Concerns Can Be Addressed with PRP?

  • Wrinkles and creases
  • Loss of collagen
  • Nasolabial folds
  • Marionette lines
  • Vertical bands in the neck
  • Acne scarring
  • Thinning hair

How Does PRP Rejuvenation Work?

PRP rejuvenation supports cellular renewal and tissue repair as well as collagen regeneration, providing natural enhancement for the complexion and scalp. To begin the process, blood is drawn from the patient’s arm and run through a centrifuge to separate out the PRP. Once the blood product is ready for injection, it is then strategically administered to areas that require revitalization. While patients may experience mild swelling, redness, and tenderness at the injection sites for a few days, most find PRP therapy to be painless and downtime to be minimal. Results are typically visible within 3 to 4 weeks. Over time, collagen growth is replenished, facilitating ongoing improvement in the skin’s tone and texture.

Key Benefits of PRP Rejuvenation

  • Reduces lines, wrinkles, folds, and creases
  • Smooths superficial scars
  • Enhances skin tone and texture
  • Firms and shrinks the pores
