PRP With Micro-needling
This amazing procedure uses your blood’s natural healing ability to rejuvenate skin and hair follicles.
What is PRP?
PRP stands for Platelet Rich Plasma. The platelets in our blood are cells designed to heal injuries and are filled with our own natural growth factors. The platelets in our blood are cells designed to heal injuries that are filled with our own natural growth factors. This makes them exponentially more effective than synthetic growth factors in rejuvenating our skin and hair follicles!*
A topical numbing cream is applied to the treatment area. The patient’s blood is drawn, spun, and the PRP is separated and prepared for use. The numbing cream is removed. The area is then treated with passes of micro-needling with PRP.
The procedure takes about 30 minutes. The patient will experience redness, maybe some pin-point bleeding which is easily wiped away after the treatment. Redness subsides in 3 to 5 days. Treatments are spaced 3-4 weeks apart with 3 or 6 treatments needed, depending upon what is being treated. Visible changes will develop over the course of several weeks.*
PRP for Hair Loss
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy, an innovative technique that is already being used for non-surgical facial rejuvenation, is now also available for the treatment of certain types of hair loss. PRP therapy can harness the power of your body’s powerful natural growth factors to reactivate inactive hair follicles and trigger new hair growth.*
The process of PRP therapy begins by drawing one small tube of your blood in our office just like a routine blood test. The blood is then spun in a centrifuge and the PRP is separated and removed from the rest of the blood.The highly-concentrated PRP is then injected into the scalp. The PRP scalp treatments are done in a series of 6 treatments done once per month.*
