Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) for Facial Rejuvenation and Hair Growth

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is a substance derived from your own blood that can be used to trigger a healing response. Platelets contain several growth factors that attract stem cells and increase rebuilding of tissues over several months. It was initially developed in the 1970s and has been used since the mid-1990s to aid bone healing after spinal injury and soft tissue recovery following plastic surgery. More recently, PRP has become popular for healing sports injuries and for cosmetic procedures to increase collagen and improve overall skin health. Recent studies have also shown PRP treatment can stimulate stem cells for hair re-growth on the scalp.

Injection for Facial Rejuvenation

PRP Injection for Facial Rejuvenation

PRP is a natural alternative to synthetic fillers without the concern for allergic reactions. Platelets contain several growth factors that increase rebuilding of tissues over several months.* When injected into the face, the growth factors in PRP stimulate new collagen and blood vessel formation.
New blood vessel formation improves the color and tone of the skin.
New collagen formation in the dermis lifts the face back to a more youthful shape.
The epidermis (outer most layers of your skin) appears smoother as the growth factors work to build up the dermis.
Facial PRP Facial (AKA Vampire Facial)

The vampire facial involves topical application of the PRP combined with aeration of the skin with Micro Needling. The platelet-derived growth factors stimulate a healing response that reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles while improving the skin’s tone and texture.
PRP naturally improves all aspects of skin health:

  • Reduces fine lines and wrinkles
  • Improves skin’s texture and tone
  • Naturally increases collagen production
  • Pore refinement

Hair Restoration

PRP Hair Restoration

PRP Hair Restoration is a non-surgical solution for hair loss in both men and women. Platelet Rich Plasma contains growth factors that naturally stimulate the development of new hair follicles while improving the health of existing hair follicles.
What to expect:
First, a blood sample is obtained and processed to extract the Platelet Rich Plasma. A topical anaesthetic is applied to numb the area being treated. The PRP is then administered with a fine needle in a series of injections on the scalp.
Mild swelling and redness can be expected 1-2 days following the treatment. It is recommended to avoid vigorous activity until the swelling has subsided. There is no other downtime following the procedure. New hair growth can be seen as early as 2 months, but is typically evident between 5-8 months and will continue to improve up to a year after treatment.* For best results, a series of 4 sessions is typically recommended. *Individual results vary, and are not guaranteed.
