Get the Facts About PRP Therapy

Are you looking to reverse the effects of aging, whether they are showing on your face or through hair loss? The solution could be contained in your very own blood. Read on to see how GLOW Medical Spa can use PRP therapy to rejuvenate your appearance.

What is PRP therapy?

The key to this treatment is Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP). Using a centrifuge, the platelets are separated from your other blood cells. By doing this, the number of platelets that already exist in your blood is increased by 5-10 times. Then these increased platelets, which naturally contain proteins called growth factors, are used to advance many traditional cosmetic procedures, producing superior results and helping diminish recovery time.

The advantages of PRP therapy:

PRP is the newest and hottest trend in aesthetic medicine because it uses your own blood, which means:

  • There is no risk of allergic reaction
  • It's ideal for any skin type
  • It's equally effective for both genders
  • It encourages the formation of natural collagen, creating a fuller and healthier appearance

PRP therapy is a great choice for patients suffering from hair loss.

The average person loses 50-100 hairs a day, but hair loss can still be a sensitive subject that affects men, women, and children. While alopecia, the clinical term of hair loss, can happen to anyone, it is more likely to occur in men. 95 percent of men's hair loss can be attributed to Androgenetic Alopecia (AGA) or Male Pattern Baldness (MPB). Female Pattern Baldness (FPB) is the cause of 30 percent of female hair loss. Whether you are male or female, two-thirds of people will suffer from hair loss by the age of 35. GLOW Medical Spa is here to help, and can help reverse the effects of hair loss through PRP therapy. This method of treatment can improve the conditions of thinning hair and bald spots.

Everyone loses some of their hair during their life, but you don't have to lose all of yours. PRP therapy can help to restore fuller, more illustrious hair.

PRP therapy has several applications in non-surgical cosmetic procedures.

Hair loss is treated with PRP therapy because it increases hair count and density, but that is not the only application of this type of treatment. With this budding new technology being approved by the American Society of Plastic Surgery for advancing traditional cosmetic procedures, it has a variety of applications now, helping with treatments that serve as a method of facial rejuvenation and much more.

The other applications of PRP therapy include the following:

  • Microneedling: A treatment that increases skin tightness and smoothness of the skin
  • Fat grafting: The likelihood of both fat survival and patient satisfaction increase when performing this treatment with PRP
  • Acne treatments: Acne scars heal better when treated with PRP compared to other methods
  • Laser treatments: Results improve and recovery time decreases when laser and PRP are combined
