What is PRP?
PRP, or Platelet-Rich Plasma, is a cutting-edge cosmetic treatment that harnesses the healing power of the patient's own blood. During the procedure, a small blood sample is processed to concentrate platelets, which are then injected into specific areas to stimulate natural tissue regeneration and collagen production. This non-surgical approach is commonly used for skin rejuvenation, hair restoration, and various medical applications.
What it Does
PRP promotes tissue regeneration, collagen production, and overall skin renewal. It is prized for its ability to enhance skin texture, reduce fine lines, and improve overall skin quality.
How it Works
During a PRP treatment, a small amount of the patient's blood is drawn and processed to concentrate the platelets. The resulting PRP is then injected into targeted areas, stimulating cellular repair and collagen synthesis.
Who it is For
PRP is suitable for individuals seeking non-surgical and natural approaches to skin rejuvenation, hair restoration, and various medical applications. It is a versatile option for those looking to enhance tissue regeneration and stimulate collagen production for improved aesthetic and therapeutic outcomes.
Duration of Results
Results vary, but patients typically experience a noticeable improvement in skin texture and appearance for several months. Maintenance treatments may be recommended for prolonged effects.
PRP is versatile and can be used for various treatments including:
addressing specific skin concerns
It is also utilized in combination with microneedling for enhanced results and as a natural alternative for joint and tissue healing.
PRP's adaptability makes it a valuable option across different cosmetic and medical applications.
If you develop a fever, cold, flu, or inflammation in the treatment areas we must reschedule. Use of PRP treatment with a heightened immune system increases risks for complications.
We recommend treating no sooner than 3-4 weeks before a special event or upcoming vacation to allow time for adequate healing and swelling to subside.
If you have a history of cold sores, please let your provider know so that we can be proactive.
Discontinue use of anti-inflammatory drugs steroidal and non-steroidal (i.e. aspirin, ibuprofen, Medrol, predisone, advil) at least 3 days to 1 week before your treatment. With PRP, we want inflammation; this is one of the mechanisms of how PRP does its work.
If you are or have been on steroids within 2 weeks of treatment, we cannot treat you. Consult your physician for approval to discontinue the use of steroids and receive treatment.
Discontinue use of any other blood-thinning agents such as Vitamin E, Vitamin A, Gingko Biloba, Garlic, Flax Oil, Cod Liver Oil, Essential Fatty Acids (EFA’s and DHA’s) etc. at least 3 days to 1 week before and after treatment to minimize bruising and bleeding.
We recommend avoiding alcohol, caffeine, Niacin supplement, spicy foods, and cigarettes 3 days before and after your treatment. (All of these may increase risk of bruising)
