How does PRP work?

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a regenerative substance that can accelerate healing for cells and tissues. It comes from a sample of your blood, which is processed in a centrifuge prior to treatment. 

The centrifugal force causes cell types in your blood to separate into layers, and one of those layers is platelets suspended in liquid plasma (PRP).

PRP includes plenty of cytokines and growth factors to support healing. These factors also have anti-inflammatory properties. Dermatologists employ PRP therapies to help you enjoy clearer, younger-looking skin or increased hair growth. 

Which treatments use PRP?

Lone Star State Dermatology Clinic offers two forms of PRP therapy to rejuvenate cells in your skin. For any PRP treatment, you may need multiple treatments or follow-up sessions to optimize your results. You can visit the team for: 

PRP injections for the skin

PRP injections can minimize lines and wrinkles to support more youthful-looking skin. PRP injections renew your skin’s vitality for an enhanced glow. 

PRP microneedling

You can include PRP in a microneedling treatment to enhance its restorative results. Microneedling stimulates skin healing by creating tiny microchannels in your skin, which causes a repair reaction. 

When combined with PRP, microneedling can reduce fine lines, large pores, blemishes, scars, and discoloration. 

PRP therapy for hair

If you lose hair because of androgenetic alopecia, alopecia areata, or some other forms of hair loss, PRP therapy may help reactivate follicles for more hair growth. 

What are the benefits of PRP therapy?

No matter which PRP therapy type you choose, you can experience stunning results and low treatment risks. Every type of PRP therapy has alluring benefits, which make these treatments especially popular in dermatology. 

Some noteworthy benefits of PRP therapy are:

  • Enhancing your body’s natural healing capabilities
  • Giving you softer and brighter skin
  • Restoring your skin’s natural plumpness without fillers
  • Improving hair growth and thickness
  • Stimulating collagen and elastin growth
  • Individualized treatment strategies
  • A nonsurgical technique
  • Avoiding downtime after treatment
  • Avoiding scars after treatment
