What is PRP?

  • Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)  can be done to hair or face, and has been around for decades using it on other areas of the body for improvement of other conditions such as wound healing or cartilage repair.
  • Blood will be drawn and spun, the PRP is extracted for use in order to promote hair growth or skin-healing effects.
  • When injected back into the skin, PRP accelerates the body’s natural production of collagen and elastin to provide overall skin rejuvenation.
  • Aesthetic areas that can be benefited with injections- acne scars, age spots, wrinkles, scars, hyperpigmentation, hair restoration, sun damage, dark circles under eye.
  • Microneedling can be done the same day.  Would numb, then inject PRP, then microneedle, then seal with additional plasma topically. 
  • Hair- 4-6 week appointments for 6 sessions.  Then yearly touch – up appointments. 
  • Facial rejuvenation  – 4-6 weeks apart for a minimum of 3 sessions. Then touch-up sessions every 6-12 months.
  • Results will not be immediate, for face will take a minimum of 3-4 weeks before any results are evident.  
  • For hair- results can take up to 2-3 months before results are evident. 
  • Very minimal side effects as the patient is using their own natural body products. 
  • Potential side effects – headache post procedure, mild pain to area, swelling- will subside shortly post treatment, and potential for bruising. 
  • Cannot do laser hair removal or any other laser treatments (morpheus or evoke)  on the same day! Due to heat
  • For hair restoration- patients who are completely bald may not have results, must have follicles to stimulate hair growth.  May have some return but will likely be “peach Fuzz”.  Same for patients with scar to area of hair growth.
