Your body has powerful healing and repair mechanisms it can use to protect itself. PRP harnesses these healing abilities by concentrating your platelets. This treatment can help regrow hair or smooth lines and wrinkles. Since PRP comes from your own blood, it makes a safe and effective treatment option. 

What is PRP (Platelet-Rich Plasma)?

Platelet-rich plasma is extracted from a sample of your blood. Your Renew MD expert will spin the blood in a specially designed centrifuge to separate the layers. One layer contains plasma, the fluid component of blood, and platelets. Platelets help your body heal and regenerate damaged tissues. The plasma also contains growth factors that stimulate skin and hair follicles.

How Long Do PRP Injections Last?

When injected or used as a facial treatment, PRP stimulates long-lasting changes in the skin and hair follicles. PRP contains growth factors that can trigger the development of new collagen. They can also increase blood flow to improve skin health. Most people need PRP treatment about once a year to maintain their results. 

How Does PRP Work?

Your expert provider can use PRP to treat hair loss or as a treatment for lines and wrinkles. Both uses take advantage of PRP’s ability to rejuvenate skin and trigger new growth. 

PRP for Lines and Wrinkles

PRP treats lines and wrinkles with a procedure known as a Vampire Facial. Your provider begins by applying PRP to your skin. They will then use the Venus Viva™ radiofrequency laser to resurface your skin, allowing the PRP to penetrate more deeply. PRP speeds healing and increases collagen production, so your skin looks younger and smoother. 

PRP for Hair Loss

PRP treats hair loss by improving the health of your scalp and hair follicles. Men and women can develop thinning hair, sometimes at a young age. PRP enhances blood flow to the scalp and stimulates dormant follicles to awaken and regrow hair. As a result, hair grows thicker and fuller, restoring your confidence.

Is There Any Downtime With PRP?

If you have a vampire facial, you can expect some redness and sensitivity that can last a day or two. Your skin will need sun protection as it heals to protect your developing collagen. If you have PRP for hair loss, your scalp may feel slightly sore after injections. You can return to your usual activities after treatment. 

Am I a Good Candidate for PRP?

Good candidates for PRP want to rejuvenate their hair growth or smooth lines and wrinkles. PRP is very safe since it comes from your own blood. Doctors who treat joint, muscle, and other injuries have found healing benefits using PRP. You may not be a good candidate if you have bleeding or clotting disorders.
