Medi-spa menus are filling up with Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) micro-needling appointments. As self-healing options continue to surface, PRP has been embraced as the new Medical Spa darling. The regenerative services treat acne, anti-aging and hair rejuvenation. To experience results, more than one treatment is required. Once completed patients experience collagen boosts as well as hair regrowth.
What is PRP and what alternatives can it provide?
During a PRP treatment, the practitioner draws blood from you, then deposits it in a centrifuge or a ‘blood spinner’. The richest platelets are selected then re-injected into the body.
Typically, the patient’s own platelets accelerate the healing of injured tendons, ligaments, muscles and joints. In this way, PRP injections use each individual patient’s own healing system to improve musculoskeletal problems.
In the Medical spa world, PRP promises to alleviate acne scars and lessen wrinkles and improve skin tone. It boosts collagen and improves skin tone. Treatment times vary, but results appear after 4-6 treatments.
