Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is an amazing innovation that has been used in medicine with enormous success in the accelerated regrowth of injured tissues like tendons, ligaments, and muscles. PRP has been shown to enhance facial skin cell growth due to its high concentration of platelets and growth factors. In the past decade, there have been several therapeutic innovations that bring this technology to dermatology. Research has shown positive results when PRP is used for hair loss and alopecia, acne scarring, and skin rejuvenation. PRP has been found to have the capacity to increase your dermal elasticity by increasing keratinocyte and collagen production.
The best part about PRP? It’s already within you! With this novel, minimally-invasive procedure, we use your own platelets to create this injectable elixir to stimulate hair growth and skin rejuvenation. After drawing your blood, we use a centrifuge to isolate the platelets with their protein growth factors, which we then inject with a fine needle. Think of it as concentrating on your own rejuvenating potential. PRP makes it possible to capitalize on the healing process at the cellular level. When injected, PRP has been proven to regenerate and reinvigorate hair and skin, keep the skin looking youthful and improve wrinkling, and stimulate hair growth while increasing the viability and density of the hair follicles. PRP can also be used in addition to hair transplants to increase the survival rate of the implanted follicles.
Dr. Michelle Reyes or a member of The Med Spot team will first meet with you for a consultation to make sure that PRP is suitable for you and will deliver the results you seek. At the time of treatment, you will relax after your blood is drawn, and the Med Spot team will isolate the concentrated platelets. Once your blood is drawn an activator is used to trigger coagulation and convert proteins. More than a million growth factor activated platelets will then be applied to your face or scalp.
Because it’s your own natural growth factor, PRP is devoid of any serious side effects. There may be some pain at the injection sites, but this is temporary.
During your consultations, Dr. Michelle Reyes or a member of The Med Spot team will discuss your skincare goals and desires with you and advise you on the number of PRP treatment sessions you’ll need to see results.
PRP has been reported to increase dermal elasticity by stimulating and inducing the synthesis of new collagen with the wound-healing properties of platelets via various molecular mechanisms.
