At Dermatology & Plastic Surgery Specialists, our platelet rich plasma (PRP) treatments can help combat hair loss and hair thinning, acne scars, skin aging and wrinkles, dark under eyes and stretchmarks. PRP works by utilizing our own bodies healing process from the growth factors and cytokines present in our blood. A professionally trained provider will draw your blood and use a special centrifuge to spin your blood and extract the PRP that contains these growth factors. The growth factors play a critical role in the healing process, tissue repair, wound healing and regeneration of new collagen and elastin. The PRP is then injected into the skin often around the eyes, mouth and hands to improve texture and tone as well as in the scalp to stimulate new hair growth.
PRP can also be used in combination with the SkinPen Microneedling treatment to naturally stimulate your own collagen production and enhance the effects of the PRP. This is great for acne scars, fine lines and wrinkles, and crepey skin.
PRP can also be used in combination with dermal fillers like Juvederm, Restylane or Radiesse for additional collagen stimulating benefits and volume.
