This uses a small tube of your own blood to prepare plasma that is rich in tissue healing cells called platelets. Platelets are our blood cells that initiate the healing process at any injury site. Since they speed healing and recovery by releasing several growth factors that stimulate collagen formation, they can be applied to the face or other areas of the skin in conjunction with micro needling and other applications. This treatment is ideal for those that want natural components to their treatment since you are using own natural cells. The results are remarkable and reveal smoother, healthier skin supported by the newly formed collagen in the deeper areas of your tissue.
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) treatments are also available for the early stages of hair loss. When you are beginning to see areas of thinning hair, PRP treatments are best utilized to revitalize failing hair follicles before they die and are no longer able to produce hair. It is not considered a permanent solution and you will require on-going treatments for optimal results.
For more information on PRP treatments ask Dr. Webb or one of our staff.
