Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a substance that comes from a sample of your blood that’s been processed. It includes growth factors and proteins that stimulate or aid in the healing process.
In order to isolate the liquid plasma from your blood and blood platelets, which play a key role in the healing process, the team at Adara Medical Spa takes a sample of your blood and places it in a centrifuge. A centrifuge twirls the blood rapidly to cause each cell type to separate into its own layer.
The team isolates the layer of the blood sample containing only plasma and platelets. Then, they prepare to inject it in the way you specify in your consultation to achieve your desired results. PRP is regenerative, meaning it helps heal cell or tissue damage in the areas where it’s injected.
You can get PRP injections for skin rejuvenation. This involves injections of small amounts of the substance across the skin on your face and other targeted areas. The injections also include small amounts of natural filler. The entire procedure takes 30-40 minutes in total and can result in anti-aging skin improvements.
You might be interested in PRP treatments for the skin if your primary concerns include:
The team at Adara Medical Spa plans your treatment according to the goals you specify during a consultation. If PRP isn’t the best option for you for any reason, the team can direct you to other rejuvenating treatments for the skin.
PRP injections also work well for stimulating natural hair growth in men and women experiencing hair loss. One of the most common types of hair loss, called androgenetic alopecia or hormonal hair loss, responds especially well to PRP injections for the scalp.
PRP injections may also work for other hair loss types related to stress or alopecia areata. You should come in for a treatment consultation if you have mild to moderate hair loss and are interested in finding out more about hair restoration.
The growth factors and other components of PRP temporarily treat hair loss by stimulating growth from the follicles that are no longer growing hair. However, results are impermanent and hard to predict so you’ll need touch-ups about once a year to maintain the growth.
