A consultation with one of our nurses will help identify the best treatment plan/area for you. PRP can be used for the face, hair, and body.
What’s in a PRP Shot?
Plasma is the liquid part of your blood that’s mostly made of water and protein. It lets red and white blood cells and platelets move through your bloodstream. Platelets are a type of blood cell that makes your blood clot. They also play a role in healing.
To collect plasma, a nurse draws blood from your body and uses a machine to separate the platelet-rich plasma from the rest of the blood. Then the nurse numbs the area of your body being treated with PRP injections. Once you’re numb, the nurse uses a needle to inject your plasma into the area of your body being treated.
For example, dermatologists and hair replacement experts use PRP injections to treat a type of hair loss called androgenic alopecia, also known as male or female pattern baldness. And some provide PRP treatments for the face. (You may have heard these called a “vampire facial.”)
When will I see Results?
It can take several weeks for PRP injections to start working. For some conditions, particularly those affecting the hair or the skin, it may take up to 6 months to notice the full effects. For some conditions, including hair loss, you may need to repeat the procedure to maintain the results.
