Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy has been well known for years as a treatment for sports injuries. Recently, it’s been gaining immense popularity in Aesthetic Medicine for its facial rejuvenation and hair loss applications. Utilizing advanced technology to promote the body’s own healing capabilities, it is easy to see why PRP is becoming such a high-demand in-office procedure.
PRP Therapy is non-surgical. After a blood draw, the sample is separated into active serum and platelet components. Concentrated platelets from the patient’s blood are injected or micro-needled where needed, including areas of wrinkled skin, tissue damage, and thinning hair. PRP contains large amounts of growth factors, stem cells and signaling proteins that promote collagen production and stimulate new cell growth. This can encourage skin repair, regeneration of the tissue and reactivation of the hair growth cycle.
With proven, long-term results, short recovery times and an average treatment cost of about $800 – $1,800 per patient, this cutting-edge procedure is an excellent service for Aesthetic Medicine Practitioners to provide.
