PRP Q & A

What is PRP?

Platelet-rich plasma, or PRP, is a natural component in your blood that contains growth factors, proteins, cytokines (molecules that promote healing), and fibrinogen (essential for blood clotting). PRP’s natural healing properties can help repair tissue damage while improving its strength and elasticity.  These inherent qualities allow PRP to support cell regeneration and enhance skin rejuvenation. 

To extract PRP, your provider draws and spins your blood through a centrifuge. This process isolates the PRP for the highest concentration of platelets. Once harnessed, your provider injects PRP into your skin or scalp.

What can PRP do?

PRP has many aesthetics and medical uses that can address a range of concerns, such as:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Hair loss
  • Skin laxity
  • Dark undereye circles
  • Uneven skin tone or texture

Your provider at Rejive Medical Aesthetics may use PRP in treatments like:

Facial

A PRP facial involves injecting PRP directly into your skin. The procedure takes about 30 minutes and requires little to no downtime.

Nonsurgical facelift

Combining PRP therapy with dermal fillers can lift and tighten your skin for a refreshed appearance without surgery. The treatment takes about one hour and requires almost no downtime. A standard treatment plan typically involves treatments every 2-4 weeks for a few months.

Hair restoration

Injecting PRP directly into your scalp can help stimulate new hair growth. Rejive Medical Aesthetics uses the SELPHYL® System with a platelet-rich fibrin matrix (PRFM) to ensure the highest concentration of platelets. The procedure takes 20-30 minutes and requires at least three monthly treatments, after which you can return for maintenance sessions.

Keralase™

This innovative hair restoration system uses a topical serum rich in growth factors and skin proteins. The Lutronic Ultra® treatment platform uses laser technology to stimulate scalp circulation and help the serum penetrate more deeply. 

What are the benefits of PRP?

PRP offers many benefits for aging skin and thinning hair, such as:

  • Smooths fine lines and wrinkles
  • Tightens skin
  • Thickens hair
  • Promotes hair growth
  • Boosts skin tone and texture
  • Encourages collagen and elastin production
  • Stimulates cell growth and turnover

As a treatment that draws from your body’s components, PRP offers a minimally invasive way to deliver safe, long-lasting results with minimal risk of allergic reactions or other side effects.

How long until I see results from PRP?

Results from PRP vary depending on the reason for your treatment. Some people notice improvements in their skin’s tone and texture within 2-4 weeks, while others see results after six weeks. Most people experience noticeable results within six months.
