Who Qualifies for PRP Treatment?

PRP treatment has been proven effective in treating a wide range of different beauty and medical issues. And unlike other procedures out there, PRP is non-invasive, meaning no surgery is required. To learn more about PRP and whether you’re a candidate for this miracle treatment, check out the guide below!

The Basics of PRP

PRP stands for platelet-rich plasma, and it is a treatment that harnesses the healing factors of your own blood in order to rejuvenate your body. The first step in the PRP procedure is the drawing of a small sample of your blood. We will then place your blood into a centrifuge in order to break it up into its different parts. The goal is to separate out your platelet-rich plasma, which is full of growth factors and white blood cells. We will then create an injectable serum incorporating your platelets.

Are You a Candidate for PRP?

Most people make good candidates for PRP treatment. There are no ill side effects associated with PRP and no allergic reactions, because PRP uses only your own blood! If you have any blood disorders, have cancer, are pregnant, have a liver disorder, or take certain medications, you should mention this to our professionals during your consultation. We will be sure to take your medical history and answer any of your questions.

PRP and Facial Rejuvenation

PRP is able to address many of the signs of aging, including fine lines and wrinkles and the loss of facial volume. PRP essentially supercharges your skin with growth factors and white blood cells, which will prompt your skin to begin producing more collagen and elastin – the key proteins responsible for structural integrity and elasticity in the skin. Overall, PRP will enhance your skin tone and condition and can give you that glowing skin you’ve always dreamed about.

PRP and Hair Loss

PRP has also been used to treat hair loss and hair thinning in both men and women. When PRP is injected into your scalp, it can help to rejuvenate your hair follicles, encouraging them to begin growing your own natural hair once again.
