Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is your body's own regeneration system.

PRP (platelet rich plasma) is produced when your blood is drawn (via regular IV blood draw) into a special tube which concentrates the platelets and allows us to harvest the growth factors within them.   

  • PRP treatment can be used for skin and hair rejuvenation.

  • Because the treatments use a patient’s own tissues, PRP is safe and can be adminstered alone as injections into the skin and scalp or used in conjunction with other procedures such as microneedling and Morpheus radiofrequency microneedling. 

  • PRP injection can be used for alopecia 

What is platelet-rich plasma?

Platelet-rich plasma consists of two elements: plasma, or the liquid portion of blood, and platelets, a type of blood cell that plays an important role in healing throughout the body. Platelets are well-known for their clotting abilities, but they also contain growth factors that can trigger cell reproduction and stimulate tissue regeneration or healing in the treated area. Platelet-rich plasma is simply blood that contains more platelets than normal.

To create platelet-rich plasma, clinicians take a blood sample from the patient and place it into a device called a centrifuge that rapidly spins the sample, separating out the other components of the blood from the platelets and concentrating them within the plasma.
