What is platelet-rich plasma?
Your blood is comprised of a mixture of liquids and solids. The liquid components include water and plasma, while the solids are red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets.
Your platelets help blood to clot and also contain a high concentration of growth factors. Platelet-rich plasma is a solution created from a small sample of your own blood that contains primarily plasma and platelets.
How is platelet-rich plasma used in aesthetic treatments?
PRP is an excellent tool for rejuvenating your skin and increasing your natural collagen production. The treatment can help improve the appearance of:
- Under eye hollows
- General facial tone
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Sagging skin
Many men and women report overall improvements in skin volume and tone, as well as a generally healthy-looking, glowing complexion. One of the most attractive features of PRP is the ability to combine the approach with many other aesthetic treatments.
How is PRP administered?
There are a number of ways that PRP can be incorporated into aesthetics treatments. Your practitioner can inject small amounts of the preparation into targeted areas.
Another common use for PRP is to spread the solution over the surface of your skin during microneedling sessions. The thousands of microscopic channels created during microneedling allow PRP to penetrate deeply into your skin where it can be most effective.
Platelet-rich plasma can also be used in conjunction with chemical peels, Botox®, dermal fillers, and more.
How can PRP help promote hair growth?
If you’ve noticed your hair thinning over the years, platelet-rich plasma can help prompt your body to increase hair growth. The treatment introduces PRP into targeted areas of your scalp.
Once in place, PRP stimulates your hair follicles by increasing blood flow and increasing the thickness of your hair shafts. That twofold response both creates new hair growth and helps you achieve a thicker head of hair.
