Platelet Rich Plasma or PRP

Revitalize Your Appearance with Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy at Pinnacle Dermatology

Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy is an innovative cosmetic treatment that harnesses the healing power of your own blood. The process involves drawing a small amount of blood, processing it to concentrate the platelets, and then injecting the resulting PRP into targeted areas such as the face or scalp.

PRP therapy is utilized for various purposes, including facial rejuvenation, hair restoration, and scar treatment. Rich in growth factors, PRP stimulates tissue healing and collagen production, leading to improved skin texture, reduced wrinkles, enhanced hair growth, and scar healing. This natural approach to cosmetic enhancement is highly valued for its effectiveness and minimal downtime.

At Pinnacle Dermatology, our skilled professionals use PRP therapy to promote a more youthful appearance by boosting collagen production and accelerating the body's natural healing processes. Whether you're looking to rejuvenate your skin, restore thinning hair, or improve the appearance of scars, PRP therapy offers a safe and effective solution.

Benefits of Platelet Rich Plasma

  • Natural Healing: PRP uses the body's own growth factors to stimulate healing and rejuvenation.
  • Improved Skin Texture: Enhances collagen production, leading to smoother and youthful-looking skin.
  • Hair Growth Stimulation: Addresses hair loss concerns by promoting hair follicle health and growth.
  • Minimal Downtime: Quick sessions with minimal discomfort, often referred to as a "lunchtime procedure."
  • Versatility: Effective in treating various concerns, including fine lines, wrinkles, and scars.
  • Long-lasting Results: Sustained benefits with results lasting for several months, and maintenance sessions can extend the effects.

Side Effects from PRP

  • Mild Discomfort: Patients may experience mild pain or discomfort during the injection process.
  • Temporary Swelling or Redness: Common side effects include temporary swelling or redness at the injection sites.
  • Bruising: Bruising at the injection site is possible but typically resolves on its own.
  • Infection Risk: Although rare, there is a minimal risk of infection at the injection sites. Proper sterile techniques are crucial to minimize this risk.
  • Allergic Reaction: Since PRP uses the patient's own blood, allergic reactions are extremely rare, making it a generally safe procedure.

PRP Maintenance

Maintaining the benefits of your PRP treatment is essential for long-lasting results. While the specific schedule may vary based on individual needs, many patients benefit from a series of initial sessions spaced a few weeks apart.

After achieving the desired results, a maintenance schedule is often recommended, which might involve sessions every 6 to 12 months. This helps to sustain the rejuvenating effects and further enhance the health of your skin or promote ongoing hair growth.
