Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy

PRP Therapy

What is PRP treatment?

 

PRP treatment is any treatment using platelet-rich plasma, or PRP. Your body naturally produces these platelets when you’re injured or sick. Their job is to help you heal by releasing growth factor proteins, which signal stem cells to arrive and rebuild.

Dr. Hakimian offers PRP therapy to help heal damaged and diseased tissues, as well as to stimulate hair growth, improve circulation, and improve skin.

What are PRP facials?

PRP facials improve the appearance and texture of your skin by stimulating collagen production. Also known as “vampire facials” or “blood facials,” PRP facials involve the use of your own blood platelets and mimic the effects of a face-lift.

While PRP facials can’t create the full effects of a face-lift, they offer many advantages, including a lower price point and quicker recovery times. PRP facials:

How do PRP treatments work?

To make PRP, Dr. Hakimian first draws a small amount of your blood, then spins it in a centrifuge, where he extracts protein-rich plasma and platelets. After that, he concentrates it.

After making the platelet-rich plasma, Dr. Hakimian can administer it in a few different ways, including microneedling and injection.

Microneedling

During microneedling, Dr. Hakimian first creates dozens of tiny punctures in your skin using a needle. Then, he spreads the PRP solution across your face, where it absorbs and stimulates collagen growth.

Injection

With this method, Dr. Hakimian directly injects the PRP solution into your skin. This works well when he’s treating specific areas, like cartilage or tissues throughout the body.

How does PRP regrow hair?

PRP stimulates hair growth by increasing blood flow to the hair follicle and thickening the hair shaft. It also stops active hair loss.

To administer PRP for hair regrowth, Dr. Hakimian injects or microneedles the PRP solution into various areas on your scalp.

Does PRP therapy hurt?

During PRP therapy, you may feel some pain at the injection site or where Dr. Hakimian nicks your skin. This pain typically subsides quickly.
