PRP (Face + Hair)

PRP therapy, which is a 3-step treatment which includes drawing a person’s blood, processing and then injecting it into the scalp and face, can be used to treat a variety of conditions, including hair loss, skin laxity, and wrinkles.

PRP treatment: The ultimate solution for thinning hair and dull, aging skin

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a type of treatment that involves injecting a concentration of a patient’s own platelets into their skin or scalp. Platelets are cells that are found in the blood and play an essential role in the healing process.

PRP treatment for the face is often used to improve the appearance of the skin by stimulating collagen production and improving skin tone and texture. It may also be used to treat acne scars or other types of scarring. PRP treatment for the hair is often used to promote hair growth and improve the appearance of the hair. It may be used in conjunction with other hair loss treatments or as a standalone treatment.

The treatment involves drawing a small amount of blood from the patient, separating the platelets from the other blood cells, and then injecting the concentrated platelets into the treatment area. The procedure is typically done in a clinical setting and may take 30 minutes to an hour to complete.

The PRP treatment helps with the following:

  • Improving skin tone and texture
  • Reducing the appearance of acne scars and other types of scarring
  • Stimulating collagen production
  • Tightening and lifting the skin
  • Promoting hair growth
  • Improving the appearance of the hair
  • Being a relatively non-invasive treatment option

Some potential side effects of PRP treatment for the face and hair include:

  • Bleeding at the injection site
  • Bruising
  • Swelling
  • Redness
  • Pain
  • Itching

While PRP treatments can be beneficial, it is important to remember that results vary from person to person and may not be immediate. The best way to determine if PRP is right for you is to speak with a professional specializing in this treatment.
