What Can PRP Be Used For

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy is an innovative medical procedure that has now gone mainstream,due to its versatility as a regenerative treatment.   PRP utilizes the power of the body’s natural healing properties to treat a variety of health issues.  Butwhat can PRP be used for?

What Can PRP Be Used For

PRP is enriched with platelets that help the blood to clot.   The plateletsalso contain natural healing agents known as growth factors.  These growth factorscan accelerate healing and regenerate tissue in different areas of the body, including the joints, hair, and skin. The PRP injections used for treatment are prepared from the patient’s blood.

  • PRPfor Joint Pain and Discomfort.  When PRP is injected into the affected joints, the platelets target the damaged tissue and release growth factors that repair tissue and fast-track healing.  PRP therapy relieves the pain associated with joint disorder and improves joint mobility and function.
  • PRP for Hair Loss. PRP combats hair loss by stimulating inactive hair follicles.   A tiny needle is used to inject the PRP serum into the thinning areas of the scalp, and the growth factors regenerate the hair follicles.  PRP therapy alsoincreases hair growth and makes existing hair stronger and thicker.   It typically takes 3 sessions to achieve the desired results.
  • PRP For Skin Rejuvenation.  PRP can rejuvenate dull, tired-looking skin and restore a youthful, glowing complexion.  When PRP is applied to the skin it renews the skin cells and adds subtle volume.  PRP is often combined with microneedling to get more dramatic skin rejuvenation.

How does PRP therapy improve my skin?

PRP therapy is helping to revolutionize skin rejuvenation for both men and women.  It is a simple, natural process that uses the body’s own healing system to tackle cellular issues that contribute to the aging of the skin.  But how does PRP therapy improve your skin.

What is PRP Therapy?

Platelet rich plasma (PRP) therapy is a procedure in which platelets from the blood are used to promote tissue repair, and stimulate cell regeneration.

The plasma preparation is made by drawing a small amount of blood from the patient, which is spun in a centrifuge at high speed, to isolate the platelets.  The PRP is then injected into the patient’s skin.   

How does PRP therapy improve the skin?

  • Enhances skin tone and texture

The growth of new skin cells tightens and firms the skin, thereby enhancing skin tone and texture.   PRP gets rid of discoloration and dullness, and reduces scars and blemishes.

  • Reduces wrinkles

PRP also stimulates the production of collagen, which is a vital protein that keeps the skin plump and hydrated.  Increasing collagen levels therefore reduces the appearance of wrinkles, and restores the youthful appearance of the skin.

  • Increases skin volume

PRP adds volume to the skin, so it’s an effective way to fill in sunken facial areas such as the cheeks, and below the eyes. 

PRP therapy improves the health and quality of the skin because the platelets contain growth factors that nourish the skin, and encourage the regeneration of new cells.  PRP can be combined with microneedling for even greater skin rejuvenation benefits.

Can I get botox and fillers at the same time?

Would you like to refresh your face with non-surgical options like botox and fillers?  If yes, you are probably interested in finding out if you can get botox and fillers at the same time.

Botox and fillers are cosmetic injectables that are used for facial rejuvenation.   They are usually a good choice for people with less advanced signs of aging.  

Can I get botox and fillers at the same time?

Yes, you can get botox and fillers at the same time.  Botox and dermal fillers are often combined in a single treatment, in order to achieve optimal facial rejuvenation results for the right candidate (click here to learn more).

Botox is typically used on the upper third of the face to treat dynamic wrinkles, which are the wrinkles caused by repeated facial expressions i.e. frown lines, forehead lines and crow’s feet.   Botox is typically injected on the forehead and around the eyes, and corrects dynamic wrinkles by relaxing the underlying muscles. 

Dermal fillers such as Juvéderm and Restylane are used to address static wrinkles that can be seen when the face is at rest.  This includes folds and wrinkles around the nose and mouth, especially nasolabial folds, and marionette lines.

Fillers can also be used to put back volume in areas of the face that have lost volume with age.  Fillers can augment sunken cheeks and contour the midface, and restore plumpness and definition to the lips.

Since botox and fillers target different areas of the face and focus on different aspects of aging, they can be administered at the same appointment.
