Platelet-rich Plasma or Platelet-rich Fibrin Matrix
The Platelet-rich Plasma (PRP) or Platelet-rich Fibrin Matrix (PRFM) that has been used successfully for years to heal sports injuries is now becoming the treatment of choice to improve the appearance of wrinkles, scars, and even dark circles under their eyes.
PRP Scalp Injections
PRP/PRFM can also be injected into your scalp to stimulate hair follicle production. We recommend a series of 4-6 treatments, 4-6 weeks apart. Results can be seen as soon as a month after the initial treatment. Yearly maintenance treatments may be required to maintain increased hair growth.
Frequently Asked Questions
Preparation is simple and quick, and completed on the physicians premises in the appointment time. Prior to treatment a simple blood sample of 10 – 20 mls is extracted from the patient. This blood is immediately placed in the centrifuge for 5 – 8 minutes. When centrifugation is complete your plasma will be separated from your red blood cells. The rich platelets are extracted from the base of the plasma gel. The platelets are injected into the deep dermis or fat layer of the skin. Platelets gradually increase collagen which can increase skin thickness and overall health of the skin.
