PRP therapy is consistently gaining popularity as research continues to uncover additional uses. PRP stands for Platelet Rich Plasma. It is derived from your blood and contains many growth factors that contribute to healthy healing, regrowth, and rejuvenation.
How is PRP Therapy Performed in Jacksonville, FL?
The process of using PRP therapy involves three steps. The first step is to withdraw a small amount of your blood (typically from the arm). The amount varies, depending on where it will be used.
The blood sample is put into a centrifuge and rapidly spun for several minutes. The components of the blood become clearly separated so the platelet-rich plasma can be removed and prepared for use.
In the third and final step, the prepared serum may be used alone or be combined with other services to optimize outcomes. PRP therapy is commonly combined with existing cosmetic procedures, and in many cases, is seen as a beneficial additive to a treatment. For example, PRP may be injected to aid with hair stimulation and regrowth, or it may be combined with microneedling or certain dermal fillers to enhance aesthetic goals.
How is PRP Therapy Used with Microneedling?
Microneedling is a cosmetic treatment used to combat the signs of aging, as well as diminish the appearance of environmental damage to the skin. Combining microneedling with PRP therapy aids in improving skin elasticity and smoothness, in addition to helping speed up the skin healing process following the microneedling procedure. Microneedling with PRP rejuvenates the skin texture of the face. It softens wrinkles and diminishes acne scars, giving your face a much smoother, silkier feel and a more youthful appearance.
PRP Therapy for Hair Rejuvenation and Thinning Hair
Wherever PRP is injected, a wave of growth factors is released into the area, creating an increase in cell repair and reproduction. This is how PRP is effectively used for hair restoration in both men and women.
PRP is a new method in the ongoing battle against hair loss and can reduce hair loss as well as increase new hair count.
PRP treatments offer great benefits for those patients who are in need of the restorative, regenerative, rejuvenating properties found within their own body’s platelet-rich plasma.
