Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP)
Using your own blood to jump-start the self-healing process? It might sound a bit strange, but PRP treatments have been producing exceptional results for decades. PRP Therapy is a simple 3-step process that involves a quick blood draw, separating important growth factors in our lab’s centrifuge, and then re-applying the PRP solution either topically or via injection to the treatment site.
WHAT IS PLATELET-RICH PLASMA?
Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) contains a high concentration of beneficial growth factors, platelets, and stem cells which are designed to promote healing. The procedure triggers additional collagen and elastin production for deep tissue repair. Men and women can achieve long-lasting rejuvenation with PRP treatments.
WHO IS A GOOD CANDIDATE?
PRP uses your own platelets and growth factors making it a safe and effective treatment for just about anyone. The risk for an allergic reaction is much lower than traditional synthetic enhancers.
At Levy Dermatology, we’re using the beneficial powers of platelet-rich plasma to treat a variety of aesthetic concerns ranging from hair loss to facial rejuvenation.
PRP WITH MICRONEEDLING
PRP injections are often performed alongside microneedling techniques such as SkinPen®. The process helps tighten skin and speed up the healing process. Patients can expect smoother, firmer, younger-looking skin. PRP with microneedling is a popular treatment for facial rejuvenation but can also be done on the hands, neck, or chest.
PRP THERAPY FOR HAIR LOSS
PRP injections have been shown to treat symptoms of androgenic alopecia (male pattern baldness). Platelet-Rich Plasma helps increase the blood supply to your hair’s follicle. The result is a thicker head of hair and continued support of new cell growth. PRP Therapy for hair loss can be done on its own or in conjunction with other medications or procedures for long-term results.
PRP FOR LASER ENHANCEMENT
Pairing PRP with lasers such as Halo or BroadBand Light (BBL) treatments produces noticeable results with minimal downtime. Adding PRP to your laser procedure boosts long-term collagen production. Patients can address visible signs of aging or sun damage such as bothersome lines and wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, and lax skin. Treatments can also be done as a preventative measure for already youthful skin.
