Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)
Microneedling with Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is among the most exciting new treatments for reversing the negative effects of aging — tightening and rejuvenating the skin to achieve a more youthful, radiant glow.
Microneedling is also referred to as collagen induction therapy. Collagen is a protein found naturally in the human body that is responsible for the skin’s suppleness, resilience and hydration. As the body ages, collagen reserves begin to dwindle, which is why it’s so important to correct this trend cosmetically. Both platelets and plasma have healing growth factors that work to energize and repair the skin and reverse the damage sustained by aging, the environment and subtle everyday exposure to toxins. A PRP serum is added to your skin topically as part of the microneedling process. These two treatments in combination can truly transform your complexion, increasing your self-confidence and giving you a reason to smile.
How is PRP Microneedling Performed?
A tiny needle is used to draw a small tube of your blood. The healing growth factors are then extracted from your blood. The serum is then applied to the skin, and a compact hand-held device that employs 12 ultra-thin, sterile needles is used to penetrate the pores at a unique depth chosen for your skin. This infuses your skin with the growth factors. These tiny pricks will work to trigger a collagen-producing response in the skin, while opening up the pathway for a more potent delivery of skin serums and anti-aging medications.
While you will see improvement in your skin right away, for optimal results, Dr. Greeney suggests undergoing microneedling with PRP 3-4 times, with each session about 6 weeks apart. To maintain your results long term, he suggests a yearly visit.
PRP FOR HAIR LOSS
These powerful growth factors can also be used on the scalp. PRP injections can be effective in treating hair thinning in both men and women. It can be helpful in preventing hair loss and promoting new hair growth.
