Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP)
Platelet-rich plasma, or PRP therapy, in our Scottsdale, Arizona clinic is a leading-edge treatment option for patients who wish to correct medical or aesthetic concerns. Used by physicians in various fields for years, PRP therapy uses the nourishing growth factors found in your own blood platelets to stimulate regeneration wherever it's administered.
During your PRP treatment, your provider draws a small amount of blood from your arm. Using a special technique, the PRP is isolated from the drawn blood. Once it is purified, your provider injects it into the desired treatment site. The platelet-rich-plasma component of the blood contains stem cells and other healing growth factors that are vital to the body's natural processes of tissue creation and regeneration.
PRP and Hair Restoration
Your provider injects the platelet-rich component of blood directly into the hair follicles where hair loss is present. The PRP induces the natural healing process by increasing circulation of blood, nutrients, and other essential restorative components to the hair follicle. The number of treatment sessions needed varies from patient to patient and is something your aesthetic nurse specialist determines after consulting with you.
PRP is a comfortable, highly effective procedure that patients typically tolerate quite well because it uses your own platelets. When used to treat concerns such as hair loss, the results can last for years.
PRP and Microneedling
Combining microneedling with PRP— often called collagen induction therapy— can refresh the complexion and treats wrinkles, fine lines, acne scars, and hyperpigmentation. The Eclipse microneedling device creates controlled micro-injuries to the skin which stimulate the production of collagen and elastin. Platelet-rich plasma applied after microneedling is absorbed more effectively through the micro-channels, enhancing the body's natural healing process.
PRP and Vaginal Rejuvenation
PRP treatments can enhance sexual intimacy and improve the appearance of the vagina. Injecting PRP stimulates the production of stem cells in the vagina, resulting in an increased libido. The treatment can also benefit women who experience pain during intercourse.
