Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Injections as a stand-alone treatment for the face stimulates new collagen, enhances microcirculation and regrowth of new healthy skin. The highest quality PRP is harvested from your own blood, providing a naturally occurring injectable for cellular support. The concentrated platelets and included growth factors can be utilized for facial rejuvenation, hair restoration, or combined with dermal fillers for structural support.
A PRP facial uses the technique of microneedling to deliver Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) to the deeper layers of your skin. Microneedling improves the appearance of skin on its own. When PRP is applied together with microneedling, the results are stunning — your skin will look smoother, your complexion will improve, signs of aging will diminish, acne scars will fade, fine lines will soften and your face will glow with a youthful radiance.
Have you noticed thinning and recent hair loss? PRP/PRF might be the answer for you! PRP/PRF is like fertilizer for your hair. You will need a series of 3-4 treatments. Our unique approach to Hair Restoration starts with PDO Smooth Threads, followed by PRP/PRF and Stem Cells. Each treatment is separated by 4-6 weeks to allow the hair to grow. Optimal results can be achieved over a 4-9 month time frame. This treatment requires us to draw your blood; stay hydrated 24 hours prior to your appointment.
Platelet Rich Plasma, or “Liquid Gold” as we like to call it, is the perfect solution to stimulate cell growth within the body. The patient’s blood is drawn, processed, and then used for treatment. The amazing benefits of PRP can be used to stimulate hair growth, diminish the appearance of scarring, encourage the body’s production of collagen, and much more.
Platelet-Rich Fibrin (PRF) which is a complex Fibrin Matrix rich in Platelets, Leukocytes, and Mesenchymal stem cells. For 10-12 days, this results in the constant release of Growth factors and interleukins which accelerate tissue healing and regenerating processes. This 100% autologous rejuvenation technique is substantial progress from the well-established PRP (or Platelet-Rich Plasma) technique where growth factors are all released only for a few minutes after treatment. This is all-natural. There is no coating, additive, or anticoagulant present in the tubes and it is proven to release a higher concentration of growth factors for a longer period of time.
In Cosmetic surgery, PRF is used to accelerate the wound healing process and reduces scarring. In Aesthetics, PRF is used to treat alone or in combination with collagen induction therapy to treat:
Wrinkles and fine lines
Tear throughs and deep folds
Brown spots (face, neck, décolleté)
Volume loss and symmetry adjustment

PRF is effective in most cases; no guarantees can be made that a specific patient will benefit from this procedure which is why a consultation is so important. Additionally, the nature of cosmetic procedure may require a patient to return for numerous visits in order to achieve the desired results or to determine whether PRF may not be completely effective at treating the particular condition. The average patient needs about 3-4 treatment sessions separated by 4-6 weeks and the final result won’t be readily visible for 4-9 months.

• Platelets, Leukocytes, and Mesenchymal stem cells are separated and used for this procedure.
• The liquid is then transferred into a syringe and injected using a tiny needle.
Noticeable results are visible within 4-9 months.
Results from PRP/PRF Treatments are expected to be long-lasting, though results may vary from person to person.
