Frequently Asked Questions

Platelet rich plasma (PRP) treatment takes advantage of platelets, stem cells, and growth factors within the blood to heal and rejuvenate the skin. Blood is drawn and spun down to separate the “platelet-rich” components from other blood cells. PRP can either be injected into the skin or applied to the skin following microneedling. There is little downside to PRP given that it uses your own blood.

PRP is also an excellent non-surgical option for hair restoration. Platelets and growth factors can help stimulate growth in the hair follicle. PRP is injected directly into areas of hair loss on the scalp. Repeated treatments are sometimes necessary for optimal results.
