Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) is based on the principle that injecting a concentration of your own platelets into damaged tissues will stimulate new, healthy cells to grow. PRP is a safe, effective, and innovative treatment. PRP therapy has produced exceptional results for decades using an individual’s own healing system to improve a variety of aesthetic problems from within.

How Does PRP Work?
In the 3-step process, your blood is drawn and run through a centrifuge. The centrifuge aids in separating growth factors to concentrate the platelets. The final step involves applying the concentration of activated platelets – topically or via injection – to the treatment site. From start to finish this process usually takes around 30 minutes.
Using your own blood to help kick-start the healing process, PRP Therapy triggers additional collagen and elastin production for a deeper tissue repair and long-lasting rejuvenation.
How Much Does PRP Cost?
It can be difficult to find the cost of PRP therapy on many websites or over the phone, most practices requiring you to schedule an appointment. While frustrating, this is because there are many factors involved in determining the cost. That said, the cost of PRP injections can range from as little as $300 to as much as $600.
Factors that contribute to the cost include:
- Your location
- What application you need
- The expertise of the doctor performing the treatment
- Your desired results
- In treating hair loss a person may need 6 treatments (1 per month) and yearly maintenance treatments.
Most importantly, since very few insurance companies provide reimbursement, these costs are out-of-pocket.

Boosting Other Treatments with PRP
Adding PRP to laser treatments and procedures has produced noticeable results in long-term collagen production with minimal downtime. Combining PRP with laser treatments helps address the visible signs of aging, hyperpigmentation, and sun damage. It also works as a preventative measure for youthful skin.
Microneedling has been used to treat everything from age spots and wrinkles to scarring and certain forms of hyperpigmentation. Pairing PRP with microneedling helps tighten skin and decrease the duration of redness and swelling typically experienced after the procedure.
