What is PRP?
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy uses injections of a concentration of a patient’s own platelets to accelerate the healing of dormant or weak hair follicles, and improve the overall appearance of the tear trough. PRP injections are prepared by taking anywhere from one to a few tubes of your own blood and running it through a centrifuge to concentrate the platelets. These activated platelets are then injected directly into your injured or diseased body tissue. This releases growth factors that stimulate and increase the number of reparative cells your body produces.
What is Plasma and What are Platelets?
Plasma is the liquid portion of whole blood. It is composed largely of water and proteins, and it provides a medium for red blood cells, white blood cells and platelets to circulate through the body. Platelets, also called thrombocytes, are blood cells that cause blood clots and other necessary growth healing functions. Platelet activation plays a key role in the body's natural healing process.

PRP Solutions for the Tear Trough:
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) can repair damaged skin and provide a healthier, more youthful appearance. Commonly, PRP Injections are paired with microneedling, a tactic in which fine needles puncture the skin, stimulating cells to create more collagen and producing a youthful look. Many clients wish to rejuvenate their skin without invasive surgical procedures or artificial fillers. A PRP facial uses the platelets and growth factors in your blood to stimulate your body's natural healing process.
PRP Solutions for the Scalp:Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections are effective means for the treatment of hair loss most commonly seen on the scalp. Androgenetic alopecia, a medical condition that causes hair follicles to shrink in size, can result in both female and male hair loss. PRP has been historically used in the clinical setting to promote and accelerate healing. The PRP is a component of blood that contains special proteins that helps blood clot as well as support cell growth functions. PRP is used in a variety of clinical settings from orthopedic surgery to microneedling for treatment of acne scars. The foundation for PRP use comes from the fact that by injecting PRP into damaged tissues (unhealthy hair follicles), you help restore and rejuvenate the cells in the treated area.
PRP Solutions for Scars:
Scar therapy with PRP injections minimizes or eliminates scars by stimulating connective tissue cells called fibroblasts and epidermal cells called keratinocytes. The influx of these new cells causes an increase in collagen production, which will replace damaged scar tissue. The result is a lighter, less noticeable scar.
PRP Microneedling Solutions:
Traditional microneedling is used to treat everything from age spots and wrinkles to scarring and certain forms of hyperpigmentation. PRP may boost these effects and help you achieve your desired results faster. Microneedling with PRP has many benefits, including: Reduces broken capillaries and spider veins. Reduces the appearance of large pores. Reduces acne scars. Evens skin tone. Improves the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Gives the skin a fresh glow. Gives the skin a firmer and smoother texture. Helps lighten sun spots.
