What Can PRP Help With?

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a regenerative therapy treatment that uses a patient’s own blood to help regenerate and restore certain aspects of the body. This is a ground-breaking treatment that can really help individuals feel more confident and feel better about the way they present themselves.

How Does PRP Work?

PRP is a process where the blood is taken from a patient and put into a centrifuge, where it is then spun to separate the plasma. This plasma is put on or in the treatment site to stimulate the body’s cell renewal and healing process. Because it is from the patient, there is no risk of rejection or allergic reaction, and the patient should be able to reap the benefits of PRP therapy within a few weeks. All candidates should be in good health and have realistic expectations of their outcome.

PRP for Hair Loss

Both men and women suffer from hair loss at different ages and stages in life. PRP restoration can help the process of regrowing hair. Once the blood is taken and separated, it is then injected into the designated areas of the scalp, which triggers the targeted follicles and promotes new hair growth. This treatment stimulates natural hair growth, improves hair density, increases hair count, and enhances hair thickness.

PRP for Facial Rejuvenation

Facial rejuvenation can be achieved through PRP with microneedling. This process causes tiny wounds to the surface of the skin to stimulate collagen production in the treatment area. As collagen is regenerated, the skin begins to plump up, filling in the lines and wrinkles on the face. Patients are then left with a smoother, firmer, and more youthful facial appearance.

After My Treatment

Platelet-rich plasma regeneration therapy does not require any downtime, and depending on what type of PRP treatment was received, results begin to become noticeable after three to six weeks. Dr. D’Souza recommends that patients undergo multiple PRP treatments over time to enjoy the natural benefits of the treatment.
