PRP Q & A

Ageless Anatomy

What is platelet-rich plasma?

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) uses a sample of your own blood that’s spun down in a centrifuge to concentrate the healing platelets. Platelets contain growth factors that can speed the healing rate of wounds. When applied to your skin, scalp, or other areas, the PRP induces healing.

How does PRP help with hair loss?

PRP therapy can be used to reduce hair loss at the scalp by triggering natural hair growth and increasing blood supply to the hair follicles. During a procedure, the doctors draw a small sample of blood from your arm and spin it down in a centrifuge to concentrate the platelets. The PRP is then injected into key places in your scalp to encourage hair growth and improved hair thickness.

Anyone suffering from hair loss can benefit from PRP therapy, but people with early hair loss tend to get the best results. Treatments are scheduled on a monthly basis for the first three to four months and then spaced about six months apart thereafter.

What is a PRP facelift?

A PRP liquid facelift involves applying the PRP following a microneedling session. The microneedling creates dozens of micro punctures in your skin that are then slathered with the PRP. Your skin absorbs the PRP through these mini wounds, and it penetrates deep into your skin and encourages healing.

A PRP facelift can improve the look of wrinkles, scars, fine lines, and overall skin health.

How does PRP therapy help improve the appearance of tear troughs?

Tear troughs are the small divots at the inner corners of your eyes, near your nose. Aging or substantial weight loss can cause these areas to hollow, making you look gaunt and aged. PRP therapy enhances collagen production in the area and circulation, plumping up the tissue and revitalizing the appearance of the tear troughs.

How does PRP enhance sexual health?

Both women and men can improve sexual dysfunction with PRP therapy. Once the PRP is obtained and prepped, the doctors can inject it into a woman’s clitoris and the area between the urethra and vaginal wall. The growth factors in the treatment help heal the tissue in the area to improve sexual wellness, clitoral sensitivity, urinary incontinence, and vaginal lubrication.

For men with erectile dysfunction, injections of PRP into your penis area can stimulate tissue there as well as blood vessel growth. This improves vascularity and hardness, reducing the symptoms of erectile dysfunction, and it may also enhance your size, sensitivity, and form.
