Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a powerful solution created from a small sample of your blood. It offers the chance to trigger impressive results from within, rather than relying on light-based therapies or chemicals to improve your appearance.
Your blood contains a mix of solids and liquid. Platelets are a solid component of your blood and are packed with unique proteins called growth factors, which work to trigger new cell development. Your plasma is the liquid component of your blood.
Creating PRP begins with a simple blood draw. The sample goes into a centrifuge that spins it at a high rate of speed. This separates the solids from the plasma, making it easy to collect and reintroduce the platelets into the cleared plasma.
Once the PRP is ready, your practitioner draws it into syringes.
When injected across your scalp, PRP works to reduce inflammation, which is known to cause or contribute to hair loss. The solution also prompts your body to launch a healing response.
This increases blood flow to the area, nourishing the cells that support hair growth. The solution encourages new cell development, allowing your body to begin growing new hair in the treatment area.
Because PRP is made from your own tissues, there is minimal risk your body will reject it or respond with an adverse reaction. One of the best uses of PRP is as a natural dermal filler.
When injected into your facial tissues, PRP prompts your body to create new collagen cells. These cells smooth and plump your skin from within, filling in hollowed-out areas and creating overall tightening.
It takes time for PRP treatments to take effect. In the weeks after your treatments, your skin begins to show signs of improvement, becoming smoother and tighter. Because PRP prompts new tissue development, the effects are lasting in addition to being natural.
