Platelet rich plasma is a different type of injectable procedure. Instead of using an already manufactured substance, we instead draw your blood here in the office, spin it down in our centrifuge, and inject it back into the area of concern. PRP, also commonly referred to as “Liquid Gold” is the perfect solution to stimulate cell growth and regeneration within the body.
PRP is a concentration of platelets, which circulate through your blood and are critical for blood clotting. Platelets and the liquid plasma portion of the blood contain essential factors for cell recruitment and specialization. The amazing benefits of PRP can be used to to stimulate your body’s own collagen production thus improving fine lines and wrinkles, discoloration, scarring, hollowing and more. It it also used to stimulate hair growth and strengthen the hair follicle.

Hayley will perform a quick blood draw from a vein in your arm using a small butterfly needle. We recommend drinking plenty of water the day before and the day of your treatment. If you have a history of difficult blood draws please let us know prior to your visit. Next your blood will be spun in our centrifuge and prepped for treatment. It is then injected back into your area of concern using a needle or cannula. Results are appreciated around 4-6 weeks following the first treatment. We recommend you plan accordingly and give yourself at least 2 weeks before any events / vacations / photos in case of residual bruising and swelling.
