Platelet-Rich Plasma (or PRP) has recently been making waves in the medical field. Used to promote healing and rejuvenation, PRP has revolutionized the dermatological industry with alopecia (hair loss) and in combination with other cosmetic treatments.

What Is PRP?

Believe it or not, PRP is from your own blood. It contains a high amount of platelets, stem cells, and natural growth factors, making it ideal for jumpstarting the healing process. Doctors isolate PRP by drawing blood and separating the growth factors in a centrifuge. The filtered PRP is then applied via injection or topically to the area of concern to promote healing, collagen production, and elastin production.

 

How Can PRP Help My Skin?

PRP application can help to promote tissue repair where the skin needs it most. If you have an area of concern, PRP can be paired along with microneedling or las

er treatment to boost collagen production and aid in repairing damaged skin.

 

What Are My Treatment Options?

At Levy Dermatology, we can use PRP treatment to treat a variety of skin issues. Once the platelets are isolated, we have two ways of administering them. We can either apply them topically or via injection.

 

Microneedling with PRP

If you’re interested in microneedling, you’re in luck. Because microneedling is so customizable, we can incorporate PRP into the treatments seamlessly. PRP is applied during the procedure and used as the glide serum during the service. PRP is able to penetrate the skin through the small channels created from the microneedling procedure. PRP will speed up the healing process and resulting in tighter and more radiant skin. Microneedling isn’t just for the facial area either – it can also be used on the neck, hands, stretch marks, and scars throughout the body.

 

PRP Injections

PRP can be injected into the scalp to stimulate hair growth. However, this procedure needs to be done in a series of at least three with a month in between each session.

What’s Right for Me?

Everyone’s skin is different, and so is every treatment we offer. To see how PRP treatments can help you to look your best, a consultation is the best place to start. With a full skin evaluation, our team of specialists will be able to help you decide on a plan to reach your aesthetic goals.
