Do you want to achieve flawless skin? Are you worried about thinning hair? If so, you may have heard of PRP therapy. PRP, or platelet-rich plasma, is a treatment that can improve both of these conditions! Because of its many benefits, PRP is becoming more and more popular, and for a good reason! Here is everything you need to know about PRP treatment.
PRP is a form of regenerative medicine that uses the growth and healing factors in platelet-rich plasma (PRP). These healing factors can restore collagen production in the skin to improve surface-level conditions and firm the skin for a more youthful look. Growth factors can also stimulate hair follicles and encourage the growth of new, healthy hair to cover up thinning or balding patches on the scalp.
PRP is often used with microneedling or lasers at Reserve Dermatology & Aesthetics. When PRP is injected into the skin, it can help boost collagen production and reverse signs of aging, such as wrinkles, fine lines, age spots, and more! Not only is PRP effective at treating existing conditions like wrinkles and scars, but it can also help prevent future damage to the skin caused by sun exposure and other environmental factors. In addition, PRP can also help improve skin hydration, reduce pore size, and even out skin tone. It is an excellent choice for those who want healthier and younger-looking skin without invasive surgery or downtime.
Male or female pattern baldness are extremely common conditions that can take a toll on people’s self-confidence. PRP can effectively treat all types of hair loss, including alopecia or balding caused by damage to the scalp. This is a great alternative to other hair loss treatments like surgery since you can expect minimal downtime and recovery after PRP therapy. After just a few treatment sessions with PRP injections, you can see a fuller, healthier head of hair.
When seeking PRP therapy, go to a qualified medical provider such as Reserve Dermatology & Aesthetics. Our board-certified dermatologist, Dr. Liz Damstetter, will meet with you for a consultation to discuss your desired outcome and recommend a treatment plan. This may include PRP or any other combination of modalities that are appropriate for achieving the desired results.
Once you have decided which procedure is correct, our team will take care of everything else from drawing blood to administering the injection. In our establishment, an experienced dermatologist draws blood from a client. The platelets are then isolated from the red and white blood cells after the blood test has been cleansed using centrifugation. Finally, the PRP is injected into the discussed area(s) of concern using a fine needle.
