What are the Benefits of Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP)?
PRP has become increasingly widely applied as research reveals more about its regenerative properties. More and more providers use it to treat joint and muscle injuries and other conditions. At the Langdon Center, PRP brings its impressive abilities to rejuvenate both hair and skin. Benefits of PRP include:
- Minimally invasive treatment option
- Performed with your own blood, therefore very low risk of infection
- Concentrates the body’s natural healing ability
- Little to no downtime after treatment
- Speeds the healing process
- Stimulates cellular activity
- Enhances the results of other treatments
How is Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Used?
The Langdon Center offers two platelet-rich plasma treatments. Both take advantage of PRP’s healing and regenerative abilities.
PRP Hair Restoration
We recommend PRP hair restoration as a non-surgical option with no medications or side effects. This treatment works by stimulating the hair follicles while improving blood flow to nourish the hair follicle cells. PRP awakens dormant hair follicles in androgenetic alopecia (pattern hair loss in both men and women), and triggers them to begin growing hair again. As a result, you see thicker, fuller hair. We may recommend a different treatment if you have extensive hair loss.
Microneedling uses tiny needles that penetrate a few millimeters into the skin. These areas of microdamage trigger collagen production and cell turnover, resulting in firmer, smoother skin. This treatment, while very effective in improving the appearance of your skin, can require a few days of healing. PRP boosts your microneedling results and speeds the healing process for less downtime.
