WHAT IS PRP?

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) treatments draw on your body’s own healing capacities by using your cells, called platelets, to regenerate and rejuvenate your skin and hair follicles. Packed full of growth factors, PRP is fast becoming one of our most popular rejuvenation tools.

The cosmetic form of botulinum toxin, known as Botox®, is a purified protein injectable filler that is FDA-approved for the temporary treatment of frown lines. This simple, non-surgical injection is also commonly used to temporarily reduce or eliminate forehead creases, crow’s feet near the eyes and thick bands in the neck. The toxin blocks the nerve impulses, temporarily paralyzing the muscles that cause wrinkles, while giving the skin a smoother, more refreshed appearance.

PRP for hair loss is a non-surgical way to fight hair loss. PRP for hair loss works for both male and female clients who want to stimulate hair follicles to grow back lost hair. This is a problem that many people face for a variety of reasons, including stress, alopecia, and hereditary hair loss. PRP stands for Platelet Rich Plasma therapy. This is where a patient’s own blood platelets are drawn with a needle to be used for the treatment. Even though this is a non-surgical option, it does involve multiple injections into the scalp to help stimulate hair growth. PRP for hair loss is a well-tolerated procedure that many people are turning to with help compensating for hair loss.
