PRP therapy has a long history of being used to treat a variety of different health and beauty issues. Originally used during brain surgeries, the therapy quickly made its way to the orthopedic world, where it was used to help pro athletes heal from their injuries. Now, PRP therapy has made it to the mainstream medical and beauty fields, where it offers a ton of great benefits. Learn more about how PRP therapy works and how it can benefit your life.
What is PRP Therapy?
First of all, PRP stands for platelet-rich plasma, which is the component of your blood that is responsible for healing tissue and cells. PRP is full of powerful proteins that are called growth factors and white blood cells. Normally, PRP is what will heal you after you suffer an injury. PRP therapy harnesses these healing powers by using a highly-concentrated dose of platelet-rich plasma.
The treatment is a safe, effective, and non-surgical process. To start, we take a small blood sample through a routine blood draw. From there, we will place your blood into a centrifuge that is able to separate it into its different parts. Once we are able to extract your PRP, we can then create a serum that can be used in the treatment area.
What are the Benefits?
PRP therapy has numerous benefits and can be used to treat various conditions. There are no chemicals, lasers, or other means used to achieve results. There is also no set downtime or ill side effects associated with the therapy.
PRP and Hair Restoration
One of the benefits of PRP therapy is that it can be used to help you regrow your own natural hair. Hair loss and thinning can be caused by damaged or malfunctioning hair follicles. However, when PRP is used in your scalp, it heals those hair follicles so that they are able to produce hair again.
PRP and Facial Rejuvenation
PRP therapy has a ton of benefits when it comes to facial rejuvenation. PRP prompts your skin to begin producing more collagen, which in turn helps reduce the look of fine lines and wrinkles. The therapy can also improve the overall look and texture of your skin, leaving it smoother and tighter.

I have been a patient of Dr.Jacobs for over 20 years,,Over that time period he has discovered, treated, and has removed several skin cancers from me. I can clearly state that if it weren’t for him I probably would not be alive today..His staff has always been the most professional and his clinical environment is always immaculate. I would recommend anyone with dermatological issues from psoriasis to melanoma to consult with Dr. Michael Jacobs.

I had the best experience with Dr. Jacobs. Went to see two doctors who misdiagnosed a rash I had on my ankle. Dr. Jacobs identified it within seconds, prescribed a medication and it started to clear up two days later. The staff is wonderful and I would go back anytime.

For over 30 years, Dr. Jacobs has treated me. He is cordial, friendly and listens. Most recently, I had a severe case of bedbug bites that I got in Portugal. Literally within minutes of texting him with photos, he corrected the diagnosis I'd been given at a local hospital clinic and told me the medicines I needed. While I saw two doctors in Europe, it was Dr. Jacobs who helped me control my anxiety. For over three weeks, he communicated frequently with me - reconfirming what I was doing was correct and reassuring me the bites would get better, Dr. Jacobs is my go to! He is thoughtful, direct and clear in conveying his diagnosis. I am grateful to him for his care and appreciate all he has done for me over the years.

I have been a patient of Dr. Jacob's for over a year and although I went for one procedure, I kept coming due to their outstanding and attentive service. Their facility is very clean and the staff is very professional. Their equipment is top of the line. I've had hair removal and lasers done that was totally painless. I highly recommend this facility.
Too Modest to Publicize Himself

The wonderful work the Doctor did restoring a freshness to my face and neck was enough to convince 5 women pictured in The Social Register to make appointments of their own. Whether socially, for a polished image at work, or for health and wellness to take personal care seriously, this is the doctor to visit. NOT one who sells her services on TV talk shows. This office is not a Botox factory assembly line. When comparing notes, we women agreed that each was treated uniquely as specialized treatments were matched with care and a sure sense of what would be pleasing and successful with each patient. May I note as well that there are quite a number of men in the office seeking treatment as well!. This is a board certified physician who teaches his skills at Cornell. It goes without saying that his professional demeanor causes a patient to trust his judgement.
