Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is an innovative treatment that concentrates your body’s natural healing powers and is used for both medical and cosmetic purposes. At Lumos Dermatology® in the Flatiron District of Manhattan, New York City, the board-certified dermatologists use PRP to treat male- and female-pattern hair loss, as well as for facial rejuvenation. To learn more about PRP and its many uses, call the office or request an appointment online today.
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a blood product made from a sample of your own blood that contains a high concentration of platelets. You may be aware that the platelets in your blood help form clots to stop bleeding. But when activated, your platelets also release growth factors that support the natural healing process, which includes signaling the molecules responsible for tissue healing and regeneration.
The board-certified dermatologists use PRP as an effective treatment for male- and female-pattern hair loss (androgenic alopecia) and facial rejuvenation. All PRP treatments conducted at Lumos Dermatology® are rendered by the board-certified physicians.
PRP stimulates hair growth in men and women suffering from androgenic alopecia, which is an inherited condition that leads to hair thinning and balding. During PRP treatments for hair loss, the PRP is injected directly into your scalp.
The injections only take about 10 minutes and cause little discomfort. There’s no need for downtime following your injections.
The board-certified dermatologists work one-on-one with you to create your personalized treatment plan. Your plan may include monthly injections for three months with additional injections once every three to six months. While results vary, you should see an improvement in hair thickness and health after three to four treatments.
The experienced team at Lumos Dermatology® also uses PRP for facial rejuvenation. You may want to consider PRP facial rejuvenation if you have concerns about:
Like PRP treatment for hair loss, your board-certified dermatologist injects the PRP directly into your skin to get the desired results. Discomfort is minimal and there’s no need for any downtime after your session.
Your dermatologist develops a personalized facial rejuvenation treatment plan based on your specific beauty goals and needs that may include up to three treatments. You should notice an improvement in the look and health of your skin within a few weeks to a few months, with results lasting up to 18 months.
