Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) for Facial Skin and Neck Rejuvenation
PRP therapy is a natural way to fight aging using growth factors in your blood to stimulate collagen growth and improve circulation resulting in a natural radiance and glow.
Aging skin is due to a combination of a gradual decline in function and cumulative damage caused by the sun, smoking, and environmental factors, resulting in loss of elastic tissue and reduced skin resilience. PRP activates collagen-producing cells, called fibroblasts, within the treated skin to produce more collagen – factors essential to rejuvenating aging and sun damaged skin.
We obtain your PRP by drawing a small tube of your blood, placing it in a special tube, and spinning it down in a centrifuge, which separates these growth factors from your own blood and significantly concentrates them. Then, we apply your highly concentrated PRP into the treatment areas where there is volume loss, thinning skin and sagging.
Modern technology gives dermatologists the ability to enhance our natural healing capacity, by creating tiny punctures in the skin (Microneedling) after which PRP is injected or applied to attract undifferentiated stem cells, decrease inflammation, and improve tissue healing and regeneration of new healthy skin.
PRP therapy can effectively add volume and stimulate collagen and elastin. PRP is used to treat thinning and volume loss in the face, neck and décolletage. It treats fine lines and wrinkles, dark circles under the eyes, vertical lip lines, nasolabial folds, and acne scars, and improves skin tone, tightness and texture for overall skin rejuvenation – while remaining safe and perfectly natural, as it all comes from your bodies own natural healing defenses, regardless of your age!
PRP may be coupled with our Collagen P.I.N. Microneedling treatment, laser treatments, microdermabrasion, chemical peels, and dermal fillers to target your unique issues.
Patients often ask, how long does it last? The answer is that it is “semi-permanent”, which means that because it stimulates your own body to regenerate new healthy skin matrix, it will remain rejuvenated until the natural factors that lead to aging recurs (i.e. Excessive sun exposure, exposure to smoking and other environmental factors, etc).
For Hair loss
Hair loss is a common beauty problem that causes dismay and concern. Some estimates suggest that over 80 million Americans suffer with hair loss. Today PRP is an alternative to hair transplants, and topical medications. This non-surgical approach is the latest innovation in hair restoration. Just 3 years ago, the only options for hair restoration were minoxidil, lasers, prescription medications and painful & often unnatural hair transplant surgery.
Like many other inherited traits, men are not alone in their struggle with hair loss. One in four women suffer from hair loss. They are at risk of female pattern hair loss called Androgenic alopecia. Yes, hair loss is inherited and affects about 30 million women. New studies suggest that overall thinning hair in women occurs as early as the 40s and is due to the age-related decline in hair shaft diameter. Other forms of hair loss can happen at any age, and factors such as diet, hormones, medications and other factors can also thin hair or cause it to fall out.
Some people have gradual thinning while others have bald spots or baldness. Hair loss includes not only a change in density, but often times a change in texture as well. If you have noticed a change in your hair, come see our expert providers at Pure Dermatology and Cosmetic Center to determine whether you are experiencing the first signs of hair loss.
PRP therapy targets hair regrowth by using blood-derived growth factors and proteins to stimulate natural hair growth. Platelets are the body’s first responders to injury. Modern technology gives dermatologists the ability to enhance our natural healing capacity, by injecting a patients own (i.e. Autologous) PRP to wake up dormant hair follicles and stimulate hair growth. The benefits are not only new growth, but also thicker healthier hair.
