Does PRP Work?

PRP or platelet rich plasma therapy is an innovative, natural method used for arresting hair loss and for facial rejuvenation; that is, it can be used to grow back your hair, and plump up your facial tissue to give you a youthful appearance.

Your blood contains plasma, a liquid, and solid components like red and white cells, and platelets. Platelets contain tons of proteins that help in tissue repair and healing. PRP is plasma that contains about 5 to 10 times the amount of platelets than normal. After your blood is drawn, the platelets are separated from other solid cells and their concentration increased, and then mixed with the remaining blood. This blood is then administered to the desired regions.

So basically, PRP therapy uses the healing powers of your own body and can be used for both facial rejuvenation and for hair restoration. Both ageing skin and hair loss can happen due to hormones gone haywire.

Baldness or hair loss can be highly embarrassing – especially if you are a woman. If you notice thinning hair on your head, you can consider getting PRP therapy to regrow your hair.  It is one of the most effective natural hair restoration therapies available.

Acne can leave scars on your face and as your skin starts aging; it’s not uncommon to see the appearance of age spots, hyperpigmentation, wrinkles and fine lines. These can be very bothersome to some of our patients and they can make you look much older than you really are.

With PRP therapy, you can get rid of these issues, and get a fresh, youthful look. The platelets induce the body to produce more collagen, plumping up your skin and making it tauter. Your face looks toned and healthy!

The procedure is 100% natural, simple, can be performed in-office, has minimal side effects and no down time.
