Platelet-rich plasma therapy, also known as PRP, is a technique that helps the body repair and rejuvenate itself without the use of medication or surgery. PRP uses your own platelets to stimulate your body’s natural healing processes. It is a safe, natural, and effective alternative for both facial rejuvenation and hair restoration. Getting PRP injections in Philadelphia is quick, easy, and convenient.
Why PRP Injections are Effective
The basic premise of PRP is that it uses your own platelets to deliver growth factors to the skin. As a regenerative therapy, PRP promotes tissue repair, collagen production, and hair regrowth. These growth factors are a major player when it comes to your cells’ ability to heal and regenerate.
To begin the procedure, a small amount of blood is collected and then spun down in a centrifuge to isolate the PRP from the blood. The resulting solution, also known as “liquid gold,” is rich in platelets and growth factors and is ready for injection!
Hair Regrowth with PRP
The science behind PRP’s effectiveness in aiding with hair regrowth is still not fully understood. However, there is strong and accumulating evidence that PRP injections positively impact hair growth. During the procedure, PRP is injected into the scalp, specifically targeting areas of thinning. Once injected, the growth factors in PRP work to stimulate dormant hair follicles, promoting growth and improving the overall condition of the existing hair. For individuals experiencing hair loss or thinning, a series of PRP sessions may be a great option to stimulate follicles and to improve both the density and thickness of the hair.
Facial Rejuvenation with PRP
Not only is PRP useful for hair regrowth, it also offers remarkable benefits for facial rejuvenation. PRP, when used along with microneedling and/or injected into the skin, can improve skin texture, reduce fine lines, and restore a youthful look by stimulating collagen production. This fresh and new collagen will help to tighten the skin and leave you glowing! Unlike some surgical procedures, facial rejuvenation with PRP provides subtle and natural-looking results with little downtime, allowing you to return to your normal routine soon after the procedure.
