Are you tired of creases and wrinkles making you look older and more tired than you are? If so, you’re far from alone. At the office of Dr. Michael I. Jacobs, we are proud to provide a state-of-the-art treatment option to help combat these irksome fine lines and reprise your youthful looks. With PRP therapy, you get a range of benefits from a single treatment. To learn more about what PRP therapy can do for you, we’ve put together this helpful guide.
What is PRP?
PRP stands for platelet-rich plasma. This is a component of your blood made up of white blood cells, stem cells, and powerful proteins called growth factors. All these parts of your blood are responsible for healing the body. PRP is a highly concentrated doses of these healing factors.
What Does PRP Treatment Entail?
The very step in PRP therapy is a medical blood draw. We then place your blood sample into a centrifuge, a cutting-edge machine that spins your blood at a high speed in order to break your blood into its different parts. This is what makes it possible to extract your platelet-rich plasma. We then take this concentrated dose of PRP and create a serum that can be injected back into your body. PRP therapy is a safe and effective treatment that is non-surgical. There is virtually no downtime associated with this treatment. In addition, because PRP only uses your own blood, there is no risk of an allergic reaction.
PRP and Facial Rejuvenation
PRP is often used for facial rejuvenation. The reason for this is that PRP is able to supercharge your skin’s healing ability. It also prompts your body to start producing more collagen, which is something that your body produces less of as you age. With all this new collagen and restorative cells surging in your skin, you will see a reduction of your fine lines and wrinkles, increased facial volume, and a clearer complexion.
PRP and Hair Loss
PRP is also used as a hair loss treatment. Most hair thinning is caused by hair follicles that have stopped working right or that have died out. PRP is able to revitalize your hair follicles, healing them, so that they begin producing hair once again. With PRP for hair loss, there is no going under the knife, no scarring, and no unnatural-looking hair plugs involved!
