PRP is a blood product that contains a concentrated amount of platelets, growth factors, and specialized cells, which are the cells in your blood responsible for healing injured and diseased tissue. Athletes have been using PRP for years to accelerate healing after an injury and even prevent the need for more invasive procedures.
More recently, PRP has been used as a cosmetic treatment to rejuvenate the skin. PRP may help:
- Diminish the appearance of lines and wrinkles
- Improve acne scars and stretch marks
- Erase skin pigmentation
- Improve tone and texture
- Restore hair loss.
Q: What is a PRP facial?
A: The PRP facial is a revolutionary skin rejuvenating treatment that significantly improves the look and tone of your skin by combining the power of PRP with micro-needling. Often referred to as collagen induction therapy, micro-needling uses thin tiny needles that create microtears on the surface of your skin. These microtears trick your skin into thinking it has an injury, so it sends over the healing properties to “repair” the damage. After your micro-needling, your practitioner places PRP on your “injured” skin, which accelerates the healing process.
While you may notice an improvement in your skin soon after your rejuvenating PRP facial, it may take up to three months for you to see the final results. With good skincare practices, your PRP facial can keep your skin looking young and fresh for a year or more.
Q: How can PRP help with hair loss?
A: When injected into your scalp, PRP prolongs the growing phase of your hair follicle to improve hair health and strength. PRP has been shown to be as effective at hair restoration as prescription hair-loss medication.
