How it Works
PRP is acquired when a small amount of blood Is drawn in the office. The blood is placed in device called a centrifuge that spins the blood rapidly extracting platelets. The practitioner will topically numb the area being treated and inject or microneedle the concentrated plasma into the area being treated. This generally takes about 30 minutes to an hour. In cases where PRP is being used cosmetically it can be combined with filler to enhance, lift, and contour the skin. Generally, this is done in multiple treatments to achieve best results. Everyone is unique so the number of treatments depends on the person, the area being treated and the underlying reasons for the therapy. For cosmetic purposes generally you will see improvement in 1-3 treatments. For hair restoration, we recommend 3-6 treatments and then 1 every 6 months. For sexual health in women usually 1 – 2 sessions is enough to feel results, incontinence may require additional sessions done initially in monthly intervals. For men’s sexual health improvement three sessions are generally performed a month apart. When PRP therapy is used for hair restoration 3-6 sessions are generally recommended with 1 every six months to a year for maintenance depending on the cause of hair loss
Frequently Asked Questions
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is an injectable treatment by which a person’s own blood is used. Platelets are vital in the process of tissue healing, and the growth of new cells. PRP thereby promotes collagen production, regenerates the skin tissue, and essentially re-energizes your cells into rejuvenating themselves. The release of growth factors amphiphiles the healing process. PRP softens fine lines and wrinkles, tightens the skin, and improves skin tone and texture.
The treatment of PRP involves a fraction of blood, collected or ‘drawn up’ from the individual patient into a syringe. The collected blood is then spun down in a special centrifuge to separate its components. The platelet rich plasma is then reinjected, and/or micro-needled back into the skin.
Typically, a PRP treatment takes between an hour or two to complete. This depends on if the PRP is administered through injections only, and/or micro-needled into the skin. This timeframe includes an additional 30 minutes for the blood to be drawn and spun in the centrifuge, and topical numbing to be applied.
Some mild discomfort may be felt while the PRP is being reinjected. The sensation typically felt is a burning or tingling sensation. This sensation only lasts a few minutes after the PRP injected. We ensure our patients are comfortable throughout the entire PRP treatment and apply topical numbing cream and ice to aid any discomfort.
Generally, patients notice tightening and a more even tone to their skin in a week or two after PRP injections. These results continue to build for up to 6 months after treatment.
Results from PRP injections can be seen for many years after treatment; However, these results vary due to the individual’s natural variation in quality of Platelet Rich Plasma, as well as their lifestyle. While we cannot stop the aging process, we can slow it down. Results from PRP injections can be extended with proper at home skincare maintenance.
Technically, PRP can used to treat area of the body. For cosmetic purposes, PRP is most popularly used to treat the face and neck. It can also be used to treat both men and women for sexual health. Blue Halo Med Spa has obtained training from Dr. Charles Runels the founder of the Vampire Face Lift and Facial, O-shot and P-Shot.
There is no downtime associated PRP injections; However, after your treatment, your skin may be red. This is normal and to be expected. Redness usually lasts from one to 24 hours. You may also have a little swelling in some areas. Due to this, some patients like to be treated towards the end of the week, so they have the weekend to recover. Healing time varies from patient to patient. Healing may take longer if PRP injections are paired with micro-needling.
Results can be seen after one treatment, but the exact number of treatments needed varies from patient to patient. Generally, 2‐3 treatments are advised, but more may be indicated for some individuals.
PRP used for aesthetic procedures are safe for most individuals. There are very few contraindications with PRP injections. The most common side effects associated with PRP injections are mild to moderate swelling and redness.
