The Many Uses of PRP Injections

Although we specifically use PRP for cosmetic use at Skin Dermatology, it has also been used for years to help with arthritis, musculoskeletal problems, and injured tendons, ligaments, muscles, and joints. The PRP is obtained through the blood, and contains a high amount of nutrients, vitamins, and growth factors. These all contribute to new hair growth and rejuvenated skin when administered to the correct areas.

How Growth Factors Work

Growth factors are a powerful subset of cytokines that have many abilities. When injected into targeted areas of the scalp, growth factors can effectively slow down hair loss and reverse miniaturized hair to achieve robust, strong hair growth. When used in conjunction with a skin treatment such as microneedling or laser therapy, growth factors support the healing and repair of the damaged skin, as well as delivering firmness and elasticity. 


Hair Restoration with PRP Injections

When used for hair restoration, PRP has the ability to kick-start hair follicles that have been “asleep” into waking up and creating brand-new hair growth.

After a series of PRP injections, hair loss patients may see significant results as soon as six months. It’s a gradual process, but very worth it to those who want healthy hair growth. Results last approximately 11 months.

RF Microneedling + PRP

When PRP is combined with RF (radiofrequency) microneedling, you’re actually getting three remarkable treatments, because each one alone is excellent for the skin:

Microneedling

Microneedling improves the appearance of many skin conditions by creating tiny punctures within the skin. These tiny holes kick-start the production of collagen, elastin, and brand-new healthy skin cells.

Radiofrequency

Radiofrequency tightens and rejuvenates the skin using safe RF energy that gently heats the skin to trigger collagen production for a smoother, tighter, more youthful appearance.

PRP

PRP boosts collagen and helps to improving overall skin texture and tone. When used in combination with RF microneedling, PRP boosts skin tissue repair and regeneration.

What RF Microneedling + PRP Can Treat

  • Enlarged pores
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Acne outbreaks
  • Brown spots and hyperpigmentation
  • Sagging, loose skin
  • Sun damage
  • Uneven or rough skin texture
  • Stretch marks and scarring

1540 Fractional Laser + PRP

The 1540 fractional laser is an ideal option for patients who want the results of a more aggressive ablative laser without the side effects or recovery time. Treatment with this laser is more gentle, as it converts energy into microscopic treatment zones to address a small portion of the skin at a time. 

This procedure not only kick-stars brand-new collagen production; it also tightens existing collagen fibers. When PRP is used in combination with the 1540 fractional laser, it is especially effective for scars. PRP with the laser not only improves the appearance of scars, but also reduces the duration of laser-related side effects.
