What is Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)?

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is an injectable treatment by which a person’s own blood
is used. Platelets are vital in the process of tissue healing, and the growth of new
cells. PRP promotes collagen production, regenerates the skin tissue, and
essentially energizes cells into rejuvenating themselves. The release of growth
factors amplifies the healing process and creates improved blood circulation.

How is PRP administered?

The treatment of PRP involves a fraction of blood (less than 3 ounces) drawn from
the individual into a syringe. The collected blood is then spun down in special
equipment (a centrifuge) to separate its components. The platelet rich plasma (PRP)
is then reinjected, and/or micro-needled back into the individual’s skin.

How long does a PRP treatment take?

Typically, a PRP treatment takes between 1-2 hours from start to completion. This
depends on if the PRP is administered through injections only, and/or micro-needled
into the skin. This time frame also includes approximately 30 minutes for the blood to
be drawn and spun in the centrifuge, and topical numbing to be applied.

When will I begin to see results from a PRP treatment?

Generally, patients notice tightening and a more even tone to their skin or hair
improvement in a week or two after PRP injections. These results continue to build
for up to 6 months after treatment.

How long do results from PRP injections last?

Typical results from PRP injections can be seen for 2-3 years after treatment;
However, these results vary due to the individual’s natural variation in quality of
Platelet Rich Plasma, as well as their lifestyle. Results from PRP injections can be
extended with proper at home skincare maintenance.
