PRP, or platelet-rich plasma, treatments have grown in popularity, both on their own and as an addition to cosmetic treatments. PRP can provide long-lasting, desirable results with little to no downtime. If you suffer from thinning hair, a dull complexion or fine lines, you may benefit from PRP!
What is PRP?
PRP, or platelet-rich plasma, consists of platelets, cells that aid in the body’s healing process, and plasma, the amber-colored liquid portion of the blood. PRP is made by taking a sample of a patient’s blood and placing it in a device known as a centrifuge. The machine spins the blood, causing it to concentrate the platelets within the plasma. The resulting PRP can then be used to treat injuries, improve hair loss, or aid in collagen production.
How Long Does PRP Take To Work?
The results of PRP are truly able to shine after adequate time has passed after your procedure. Depending on the specific treatment you are utilizing PRP, it could take several weeks or months to see noticeable results. PRP injections are safe to use and can be a beneficial addition to specific treatments. The results of PRP are not permanent but are generally long-lasting.
What Treatments Use PRP?
PRP can be very beneficial in a variety of cosmetic treatments. Vampire facials are one of the treatments we offer at Renew MD that utilizes PRP to help rejuvenate your appearance and achieve a confident glow. PRP is used in vampire facials and other treatments to stimulate collagen production in your skin to help smooth and tighten it, making your face look younger and rejuvenated.
At Renew MD, we also utilize PRP in the treatment of hair loss as a way to restore the thickness and vitality of our client’s hair without the need for surgery. During PRP hair restoration, PRP is injected into the treatment area to help stimulate stem cells in the hair follicles to encourage hair growth, allowing for a thicker, fuller head of hair. This treatment typically occurs over four to six weeks and consists of three to four sessions.
What are the Benefits of PRP?
PRP can provide many long-lasting benefits when used in cosmetic procedures. PRP can help stimulate hair growth and increase hair count and thickness without surgery when used to treat hair loss. When used in skin treatments like vampire facials, PRP can stimulate collagen production, help you achieve tighter skin, smooth fine lines, and rejuvenate a dull complexion.
