PRP Treatment NYCOne of the most innovative cosmetic treatments available is Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP). For more than four decades, it has been used in therapeutic applications. At our New York office, we utilize PRP therapy for skin rejuvenation, stimulating hair growth, and more.
What is PRP?Combining the precision of science with the natural healing abilities of the body, PRP therapy extracts and enhances beneficial components from your own blood. The procedure uses only a small amount of blood, and yields big benefits.
The blood sample is processed in a centrifuge, which extracts certain components of red cells. Once processed, the growth factors are enhanced as much as ten times. Prepared PRP is a powerful therapeutic compound, which has been used by professional athletes to help heal tendon injuries without surgery. It is also approved by the FDA for treatment of bone loss.
In cosmetic treatment, it helps stimulate collagen development, renew of skin cells, regenerate tissue, and speed healing. In studies, it has been shown to trigger profound improvement in dark circles and under eye hollows when injected in the lower lids.
Is PRP right for you?This therapy is safe for virtually anyone, because it utilizes compounds from your own body rather than synthetics. The best candidates for this therapy depend on the treatment goals:
- Hair loss – If you have signs of thinning hair, or male or female pattern hair loss, PRP therapy may help. It is not recommended for completely bald individuals who have no hair growth.
- Facial rejuvenation – This is a great choice for those who prefer a more natural and subtle option than fillers, or who want to improve the results of fillers.
- Healing – PRP may be beneficial for anyone who has undergone an invasive procedure and wishes to hasten the recovery time.
