Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a substance shown to promote healing when injected. Plasma is a component of blood that contains special proteins that help your blood to clot and proteins that support cell growth. PRP is injected into the scalp to promote hair growth and prevent hair loss, particularly in androgenic alopecia (male pattern baldness) and traction alopecia (caused by pulling edges of hair along hairline too tightly). It is also beneficial when added to skin rejuvenation procedures, such as microneedling.
The process is relatively low risk and simple. It involves drawing a tube of your own blood. A machine is used to separate the platelet-rich plasma from the the rest of the blood. The area being treated is numbed prior to using a needle to inject PRP.
What They Say
“I couldn’t be more thrilled with my lip filler service and overall experience with Yolanda! She was very helpful and attentive when discussing my end goal and the look I was going for, asking all the right questions to ensure the result was exactly as I’d hoped. She used only as much as I needed for my desired look and the appointment was quick, nearly painless and so fun! Everything was in impeccable condition, very clean, very pretty. It’s been almost 10 months since my first appointment and I’m still so happy with my lips! That being said, I can’t wait to see Yolanda again!”
