Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)

Our PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) treatment involves the collection, spinning, then injection a sample of blood into the scalp to stimulate hair growth.  To separate red blood cells from PRP, your blood is spun rapidly in a centrifuge to isolate active growth factors to promote and accelerate healing and cell regeneration. This PRP is then injected into the scalp in the vasculature of the hair to reactivate inactive hair follicles that encourage thinning or balding. By initiating repair to damaged tissue and sending stem cells to the area, this encourages the growth of new, healthy hair. 

Microneedling with PRP

To enhance results, PRP can also be used with Microneedling to apply growth factors and create new cells to regenerate and heal skin on the face. This option is especially great for older skin types as our skin begins to produce less growth factors naturally and must be supplemented topically with skin care and skin treatments to maintain youthfulness.

PRP Frequently asked questions.

How does PRP work?

The patient’s blood is drawn and spun for 10 minutes in a centrifuge. This separates the red blood cells from the PRP. It is then withdrawn with a syringe (which will be determined by what is it used for) and then either used topically on the face with microneedling by Whitney, or injected into the scalp by Dr. Becker for hair restoration.

What are growth factors?

Growth factors play an important part in maintaining healthy skin structure and function. Growth factors are secreted by all cell types that make up the epidermis (outer layer of skin) and dermis (the layer of skin between the epidermis and subcutaneous tissue) of the skin.

What are stem cells?

Stem cells are made up of growth factors and proteins responsible for production of collagen, elastin, and new cell growth wanted for fresh new plump skin.
