PLATELET RICH PLASMA (PRP)
PLATELET RICH PLASMA (PRP)
PRP FOR HAIR HAIR LOSS
Hair loss can significantly affect your appearance and confidence. If you have been looking for hair loss treatments that do not require surgery yet produce natural results, platelet-rich plasma injections should be at the top of your list.
PRP treatments can be very effective in treating male and female pattern hair loss or androgenic alopecia. PRP injections treat hair loss from the inside out by stimulating inactive hair follicles to promote hair regrowth while slowing down future hair loss. It’s non-invasive, pain-free, convenient, and requires little to no downtime.
WHAT IS PLATELET-RICH PLASMA (PRP)?
PRP is a natural product derived from the patient’s own blood to help tissue heal and help grow new cells and hair follicles. It contains a high concentration of platelets and natural growth factors. PRP can be applied topically, injected into the skin, or combined with other procedures like microneedling to attain the desired outcome.
The treatment is well tolerated and typically requires a series of treatments for optimal results. The best thing about PRP is that there is little to no downtime and minimal side effects.
MICRONEEDLING WITH PRP
PRP injections can be used in combination with your microneedling treatment. Microneedling stimulates the production of new collagen by gently pricking the skin, while PRP injections enhance the results of your microneedling treatment. Microneedling with PRP not only addresses skin issues like acne, sun damage, and hyperpigmentation but also rejuvenates your skin inside out, giving you a healthy glow.
Benefits of Microneedling with PRP:
- Reduces fine lines and wrinkles
- Improves skin texture and tone
- Erases acne scars and hyperpigmentation
- Diminishes sun damage
- A youthful, healthy glow, and more!
