To obtain platelet-rich plasma (PRP), your provider gathers a small blood specimen from your arm. This blood is processed in a centrifuge, a specialized machine that rapidly spins your blood and separates your platelets.
Blood platelets have countless growth factors attached to them, which are unique proteins that stimulate a cascade of healing events, like cell turnover and tissue production.
By getting a rich concentration of platelets and growth factors and injecting them into a targeted area, healthier tissues start building up from the deepest layers.
At Elysium SurgiSpa, you can start a personalized PRP treatment plan to target a wide variety of issues and imperfections. Benefits of PRP therapy include:
PRP therapy can even stimulate hair follicle growth and promote blood flow to the area, so you can regrow your own natural hair.
Depending on your treatment at Elysium SurgiSpa, PRP can be administered via injections or by applying it topically during a microneedling service. You can even pair PRP with laser skin resurfacing or microneedling for superior anti-aging service.
Since PRP therapy is a regenerative treatment, meaning it can stimulate tissue production and cell turnover, it takes time for you to experience dramatic results. However, you should start noticing an improvement in your symptoms within about 2-4 weeks, with continuing benefits every week.
For PRP hair restoration, it can take up to about three months for you to start noticing new hair growth.
You’ll most likely need a series of PRP treatments at Elysium SurgiSpa to achieve optimal benefits. When you come in for your PRP appointment, your dedicated aesthetician lets you know about how many PRP sessions you may need and when you should expect results.
