Platelet-Rich Plasma Therapy
Whether you are looking to revitalize the look and feel of your skin or you’re searching for a way to help regrow your thinning hair, platelet-rich plasma therapy could be an excellent fit for you. There are many ways in which PRP can help those who undergo treatments, as the substance contains active healing properties that can aid in an array of cosmetic issues. Orlando residents interested in learning more about PRP therapy here at LightTouch Med Spa should read on before giving our facility a call for your free consultation.
PRP Healing Properties
In both forms of treatment, platelet-rich plasma is used to stimulate the healing properties and tissue regeneration in the body thanks to the concentrated amount of platelets in the substance. The patient’s blood must first be drawn and then placed in a centrifuge to obtain PRP. This method separates the blood by density and prepares a high amount of platelets in a limited amount of plasma. Once isolated and concentrated, the platelet-rich plasma can be administered to the face, or the scalp to stimulate the healing and regeneration of the body’s cells at the place of injection.
Those who have developed fine lines around the eyes and mouth, or dark circles under the eyes, can benefit significantly from platelet-rich plasma therapy. People who also have sun damaged skin, rough texture, or scarring due to acne and other skin conditions, can gain beneficial results from PRP too. When treating the face with this healing substance, it is called a vampire facial, as the patient’s own blood is used for the treatment.
This treatment will see our medical practitioner perform micro-needling or microdermabrasion to your face before slathering the platelet-rich plasma onto the area. This allows the stimulation of cell regeneration and collagen production in the skin to produce an all over younger looking appearance. Fine lines and wrinkles will start to fade away, and a more even skin tone will begin to develop as the process takes effect, helping patients reach the aesthetic they desire.
*Results May Vary*
Just as the healing properties help skin cells regenerate, so too can PRP stimulate the production of hair growth at the follicles. Like the vampire facial, hair loss treatments will see the platelet-rich plasma injected into the area selected for therapy. Thinning hair, receding hairlines, and balding spots on top of the head can all be treated using this method, helping to regrow hair naturally and safely.
With minimal side effects and little to no downtime, as well as the fact that this treatment approach can be used in conjunction with other hair treatment, such as creams and transplants, makes platelet-rich plasma therapy a great approach to hair loss. It typically takes 4 to 6 months to see new hair growth, and will continue to become thicker for up to a year, with a minimum of three sessions needed for optimal results.
