PRP, or platelet-rich plasma, is a natural product that comes from your blood. A technician draws a small amount of blood and places it in a centrifuge, which separates components of the blood. The platelets and the plasma, or the clear fluid, split from the red and white blood cells. The plasma, now called PRP, includes white blood cells and a larger than normal amount of platelets, or cell fragments, which contain important growth factors that boost healing. Now it’s ready for injection into your problem areas.
Platelet-rich plasma is a growing option to boost healing in many conditions. First used in sports medicine and dentistry to speed the healing process, it’s increasingly common in treating conditions from skin rejuvenation to hair loss to vaginal rejuvenation.
Facial skin rejuvenation
If you’re developing fine lines and wrinkles or have sun damage, PRP can help. PRP stimulates natural collagen production for complete facial rejuvenation. It can provide volume to the entire face; plump cheek indentations; reduce hollows under your eyes; improve your skin tone, tightness, and texture; and augment areas where hyaluronic acid fillers would not be effective or safe.
Evidence shows that PRP slows hair loss in people with alopecia. It also improves results in hair transplants and is an increasingly common accessory in that procedure. The growth factors in the PRP help boost hair follicle activity and result in new hair growth.
To boost hair growth, Dr. A Spa medical professionals inject the PRP into your scalp where your hair follicles are, about every half inch in the area where your hair is thinning. Facial plastic surgeons say that PRP is effective in 70% of cases. Hair loss slows or stops completely in many cases, and hair grows in thicker.
As part of the normal aging process, vaginal tissue loses moisture, especially after menopause. Many women find that sex turns painful due to vaginal dryness. Sometimes lubricants simply don’t do the job.
Vaginal rejuvenation is an in-office procedure using PRP to restore the health of dry vaginal tissue. It’s a quick injection and relatively painless. There is very little risk because Dr. A medical professionals inject your own plasma with enriched growth factors back into your body. Results can be immediate, although some women report full effects after a few weeks.
