WHAT IS PRP?
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy harnesses the body’s natural ability to heal itself by concentrating the elements in your own blood that promote growth and healing into a powerful serum directly injected into the area in need of repair. In aesthetic medicine, this regenerative treatment can be combined with other procedures or used on its own.
The Skin Clinic Medspa offers two types of PRP treatment: the PRP Glow Up Booster and PRP Hair Restoration. Our Glow Up Booster combines the healing properties of PRP with collagen injections targeted to restore volume and reduce the look of scarring or wrinkles for a targeted effect that stimulates your natural healing where it can do the most good. PRP Hair Restoration helps to address hair loss or thinning hair by injecting the healing plasma into the scalp at the level of the hair follicles to promote hair growth.

You can expect a PRP treatment to take an hour or two, depending on the exact procedure you’re having. This includes the time you’ll need for your blood to be drawn and spun in a centrifuge to extract the desired elements.
Adding PRP to a dermal filler injection doesn’t change the expected downtime—which is to say, there really isn’t any! You might experience a little redness in the area of the injection that should go away within a day.
Dermal fillers are recommended to improve the appearance of areas where your natural fat and collagen have reduced over time. A combined injection at those sites allows the PRP to stimulate your body to replace collagen and elastin that have been lost while the filler provides an instant volume corrector. Patients receiving this combined treatment report results that can last up to six months longer than that of fillers alone.
Both men and women who suffer from thinning hair or weak hair growth are candidates for PRP treatment. PRP works best on areas where there is existing hair that is thinning, rather than on areas that are completely bald.
For the best results, plan on repeating your treatments monthly for the first three to four months, and then every three to six months thereafter, depending on your individual response to the therapy and your results. It usually takes at least six months to accurately judge the degree of regrowth. However, you will probably notice decreased hair shedding well before then.
