PRP Treatment

platelet-rich plasma
Platelet-rich plasma is known for its ability to heal damaged tissue quickly and naturally. At Metro Dermatology, we include PRP in our facial rejuvenation and hair loss treatments to maximize results.

What is PRP?
The benefits of PRP were first discovered in athletes who were able to return to their sport more quickly than with medication or physical therapy.
Blood is mostly liquid, but also contains solid components such as red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets. Platelets are best known for their ability to clot blood, but they also contain important growth factors that can be used to regenerate body tissue.

PRP is a sample of a patient's blood spun in a centrifuge. This separates the blood components and causes the plasma concentration to be higher than normal.
Once the centrifugation process is complete, PRP is extracted from the remaining blood sample and injected into the treatment area or applied topically.

How is PRP used in the treatment process?
When combined with cosmetic treatments such as facial rejuvenation and hair restoration, PRP has the following benefits:
Facial Rejuvenation – The growth factors in PRP, alone or in combination with other skin rejuvenation treatments, stimulate the production of new collagen, elastin and blood vessels in the treatment area, creating soft, plump skin and restoring its natural glow.

Hair Restoration – For male and female patients experiencing premature hair loss, PRP has been proven to stimulate hair regrowth in affected areas. PRP is injected into the scalp to form new growth tissue at the hair roots.
What are the benefits of PRP?
In addition to naturally stimulating healthy tissue regeneration, PRP offers several benefits to patients.
Minimally invasive procedure that allows patients to return to normal activities right away

Since PRP is a tissue of the body, it eliminates the risk of complications and side effects when it re-enters the body.
Unlike other rejuvenation treatments that only provide temporary improvements, PRP promotes the growth of new tissue for sustained rejuvenation over time.
PRP has no major side effects other than slight redness, swelling, or bruising at the injection site.
