The Benefits of PRP for Hair Loss and Skin Rejuvenation AT DERMACARE MEDICAL AESTHETICS

The body is so amazing. It can literally heal itself.

When you get hurt, your body protects and heals that area by creating new, fresh skin. But what happens when you intentionally injure your skin and then use your own blood to heal? Complete rejuvenation. At Dermacare Laser & Skin Care Clinics in San Diego, we offer PRP therapy. This process can be used for hair loss, and it can be used to address signs of aging like wrinkles, skin laxity, and age spots as well as issues with skin tone and texture.

Creating micro-injuries in the skin (microneedling) stimulates the body’s natural healing response to regenerate cells and produce collagen, and including PRP to the process allows you to essentially start fresh with skin rejuvenation and restoring your hair. Let’s dive in and find out what PRP is all about, including the benefits of this revolutionary treatment.

What Is PRP?

Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) is a group of blood cells that contains stem cells and growth factors to promote healing and new cellular growth in the body. To get the PRP, your blood will first be drawn. The extracted blood will then be spun in a centrifuge to separate the PRP from the rest of the blood. This PRP can be used to stimulate hair growth when injected into hair follicles and create a glowing, facial complexion when paired with microneedling.

The Top 3 Benefits of PRP Therapy

While there are many amazing benefits of PRP therapy, here are the top three that stand out the most for people who are trying to decide if PRP is the right option for them:

1. It is Non-Surgical, Quick, and Convenient

PRP is one of the most beneficial rejuvenation procedures out there. It is non-surgical, which means no incisions, scarring, or recovery involved. It is also a quick and convenient method of rejuvenation, as it typically takes only about one hour or less to perform.

2. It Is Natural

This procedure is all natural! It uses your very own blood, which reduces the risk of rejection or an allergic reaction. This is important because you aren’t putting anything foreign into the body besides your own blood. And because PRP stimulates collagen, this procedure promotes cell turnover and the natural healing response, leaving you with a radiant, natural-looking glow.

3. It Can Be Used to Treat Many Things

PRP can be used to treat a variety of conditions. At Dermacare Medical Aesthetics, we offer PRP therapy for hair loss and skin rejuvenation. For hair loss, once the PRP is separated, it is injected into the scalp to promote blood supply to damaged or dormant hair follicles. This process awakens the follicles, resulting in thicker, fuller, and longer hair. When used as a skin rejuvenation technique, the PRP is applied topically all over the face, like a lotion or serum. This allows the microneedling device to create micro-injuries in the skin, which allows the skin to naturally absorb the stem cells and growth factors to the fullest extent. This process allows for complete facial rejuvenation and a rejuvenated appearance.
