Why PRP Is So Popular
- Posted on: Mar 15 2019
If there’s one treatment that’s really popular amongst all of our patients right now it’s definitely platelet rich plasma. Platelet rich plasma or PRP involves extracting the protein dense plasma from your blood and then injecting it into different parts of your body. Once injected into your body, it helps with stem cell growth which can do a variety of things including helping with hair growth, decreasing fine lines and wrinkles, and increasing collagen production. But what exactly do we at Dr. Kristin Tarbet office use PRP for?
If you either have a full head of nothing or if you are at the start of hair loss, then PRP may be able to help. By injecting your PRP directly into the scalp, it can help increase the blood flow to your scalp and trigger the follicles’ natural cycle. Although it doesn’t work as quickly a Chia Pet, it can give patients, like you, real results. Depending on how well your scalp responds to the first treatment, we will determine just how many treatments it will take for you to get the results that you want.
Fine Lines, Wrinkles, and Collagen Loss
Another thing that we like to use PRP for is anti-aging. Whether you have noticed that you have fine lines, wrinkles, or just a loss of collagen, PRP alone may be able to help or we may recommend our “PRP Gold” which combines your plasma with some amino acids. When used together, patients notice tighter, clearer, fuller, and more youthful looking skin without having to go under the knife.
Facial scars can be really embarrassing. If you feel like your self-esteem has started to suffer because of your facial scars, then PRP may be able to help. Because scars are usually indented or flattened, PRP can help ad volume to them to even out the skin and reduce the scars appearance.
