Platelet-rich plasma, or PRP, is a processed substance made out of your own blood which can stimulate collagen growth and facial rejuvenation. It’s a minimally invasive in-office procedure that involves extracting a small amount of your blood which is then processed in a centrifuge, a machine that spins it at a very high speed. The machine turns your extracted blood into a healing substance rich with growth proteins and platelets. Then our dermatologists inject you with the PRP. PRP can help with stimulating hair re-growth and facial rejuvenation.
PRP injections help with hair restoration by targeting the hair follicles. The growth proteins in PRP injections penetrate hair follicles that have stopped growing hair and stimulate new growth, helping restore your hair. For optimal hair restoration results, our dermatologists may provide PRP injections in conjunction with micro-needling therapy, which involves making small, controlled skin injuries that penetrate your hair follicles and help further stimulate hair growth. This combination of therapies can be used to treat hair loss for men and women.
