Platelet-rich plasma, more commonly known as “PRP,” is an entirely natural treatment that begins with a simple blood draw. Your practitioner processes your blood sample in a machine called a centrifuge.
As the centrifuge rapidly spins your blood, platelets, which contain growth factors, separate from other components. This solution — your PRP — is injected into targeted areas. The unique components in PRP stimulate biological healing events — they’re the same components that jump into action when you have a wound.
PRP injections can correct the appearance of your skin and fill in wrinkles by triggering new tissue and collagen development. You can even undergo a PRP hair restoration treatment, which helps stimulate blood flow to hair follicles where you have thinning hair, so you can regrow your own hair, naturally.
Yes! PRP facials and hair restoration are often preferred over other types of regenerative medicine treatments for several reasons. Undergoing PRP treatments from Elite Vein & Hair Restoration is beneficial because it:
PRP treatments from Elite Vein & Hair Restoration have minimal downtime. Even though you’re likely going to have some redness or soreness near the injection sites, these minor issues tend to fade gradually over the following few hours.
Even though you won’t have results overnight with PRP, rest assured, powerful growth factors are hard at work stimulating healing processes, including tissue formation and hair growth.
For PRP facials, you should find that your skin starts getting tighter and smoother within about six to eight weeks. Or if you’re undergoing PRP hair restoration treatments, you should start noticing new hair growth within about three to four months, with more dramatic results by about six to nine months.
Your PRP treatment plan from Elite Vein & Hair Restoration may include a series of two or three sessions, each spaced about four to six weeks apart. Depending on your specific service, your provider may recommend maintenance PRP treatments once or twice a year.
