PRP, or platelet rich plasma, has been used for years in reconstructive and orthopedic surgery to improve wound healing. It is now being used cosmetically to stimulate collagen and hair growth, enhance skin texture, and for facial rejuvenation.

PRP is a solution of platelet cells and growth factors taken from your blood. Platelets are best known for clotting, but also carry many proteins and growth factors important for healing and regeneration.

PRP stimulates cell growth where it is injected, helping your body heal itself the natural way, without using chemicals or foreign substances of any kind. There is no possibility of an allergic reaction because the plasma comes from your own body.

Using PRP for cosmetic rejuvenation

We use PRP to improve volume loss in the face, hands and neck, as well as fill out wrinkles, crepey skin, and improve acne scarring and stretch marks.

PRP is often combined with microneedling collagen induction therapy to obtain further improvement. Microneedling creates tiny punctures in the skin. In this two-step procedure, the PRP is applied topically into those punctures and injected into the skin.

PRP can also be combined with traditional fillers and laser procedures. With PRP, you will look more youthful and rejuvenated.

Using PRP for hair restoration

PRP is injected directly into scalp areas with thinning hair. Studies show that PRP stimulates follicles, increases follicle density, and leads to less hair lost when pulled on. Multiple treatments are recommended spaced two to three months apart.

What to expect during your PRP procedure

A small amount of blood is drawn from your arm. We then prepare it to isolate the platelets and associated growth factors. While the PRP is being prepared, we clean the injection site and treat it with a topical numbing gel. After 15 minutes, we use very fine needles to inject the PRP. This causes minimal discomfort. Mild swelling and bruising can occur, but this generally resolves within three days.

Harness and Amplify Your Own Natural Platelets and Growth Factors for Regenerative Medicine.

Platelet-rich Plasma (PRP) is a preparation of platelets yielded from your own blood plasma that contain large amounts of regenerative growth factors and proteins that can stimulate skin healing, signal collagen and elastic production, restorative slowing of aging mechanisms, and even stimulate hair growth. First used in orthopedic surgery, where PRP is injected to improve joint function, Dermatologists are using PRP widely for its potential regenerative skin and hair rejuvenation purposes as well.

The celebrity secret to looking “forever young” by using the body’s own regenerative properties to maintain glowing, healthy skin.

The Derm Institute exclusively uses the most modern, evidence-based, science back PRP harvesting techniques to get the highest and purest yields of regenerative proteins for the best rejuvenation results.  Among the most natural non-invasive skin rejuvenation methods, PRP utilizes only your body’s natural proteins—no outside fillers, no chemicals.

Some of the conditions Dermatologists are using PRP for include:

Benefits Of PRP

One of the major benefits of PRP therapy is that we use your body’s own healing elements to create the serum. 

To make PRP, we draw a sample of blood from your arm and spin it in a centrifuge that separates the platelets from the other components in your blood. You may be familiar with platelets’ blood clotting abilities, but these tiny cells also contain growth factors and proteins that play a central role in the healing process.

Because we use your own blood for PRP therapy, the risk of an adverse or allergic reaction is very low. 

PRP is a form of regenerative medicine that supports your body’s natural healing process. When you have an injury, your blood delivers platelets to the area to stop the bleeding and repair the damage. 

Though your body has everything it needs to heal an injury, sometimes the process is slow or ineffective due to the location of the injury or poor blood supply. 

The PRP we use for your therapy contains a higher concentration of platelets, growth factors, and the healing proteins normally found in your blood. Our medical professionals inject the PRP directly into your injured or damaged tissue to supply the healing elements it needs to accelerate the process.

Joint pain is common and develops due to many causes, including injury, overuse, arthritis, or the general wear-and-tear that comes with age. The healing properties in the PRP reduce joint inflammation and pain and improve mobility.

We may recommend PRP therapy to ease large joint pain including knees, hips and shoulders. 

Though PRP therapy time varies depending on your individual health needs, in most cases, it’s a quick and painless treatment.

After we draw your blood and create your PRP for the injection, our medical professional injects the healing cells directly into the injured or damaged tissue, which only takes a few minutes. If needed, we may use a local anesthetic prior to your PRP injection to minimize discomfort.

We may have you remain at the office for a few minutes for monitoring before we send you home. 

You may experience some swelling and inflammation after your PRP therapy, but you can go back to your usual day after your treatment. We provide activity and pain-relief guidelines following your PRP therapy to minimize post-therapy discomfort and support the healing process.

Though you may notice improvements in your pain and mobility within a week or so after your PRP therapy, the healing process takes time. It may take up to six months until you see the full benefits.

PRP therapy harnesses your body’s natural healing powers to accelerate the healing of injuries, ease pain, and improve health and function.

General FAQ

Have any question?

Platelet rich plasma or PRP is a natural product and treatment created from your own body. It involves obtaining a sample of your own blood for concentration and then separation of the red and white cells from the platelets and the plasma. Rich platelets containing growth factors are in this concentrated plasma. This is then re-administered into your skin at your appointment.
