No matter your age, you want to look your best. When you notice fine lines or thinning hair, you want to take action, looking for aesthetic treatments that can restore your youthful look without changing your look.
You’re not alone, which is why so many people turn to platelet-rich plasma (PRP) for skin rejuvenation and hair restoration. PRP uses your body’s natural repair system to rejuvenate the skin and treat hair loss.
At Montclair Rejuvenation Center in Verona and West Caldwell, New Jersey, our team of estheticians led by Dr. Kelly Distefano offer many treatments to keep you looking your best, including PRP for skin rejuvenation and hair loss.
Why is PRP so popular?
Platelet-rich plasma is a biological product that consists of plasma and platelets. Plasma is the liquid portion of your blood and platelets are the tiny blood cells essential for healing. Though well-known for blood clotting, platelets do more than just stop cuts from bleeding.
When you have an injury, platelets cluster around the wound. The injured tissue activates the platelets to release special proteins and growth factors that heal the wound, stimulating the regeneration of new cells, tissue, and blood vessels.
PRP has a high concentration of platelets. We create the PRP we use for skin rejuvenation and hair restoration by spinning a sample of your own blood in a centrifuge. This centrifuge separates the platelets from all the other cells in your blood. Then, we add those platelets back to the plasma.
PRP may have up to seven times more platelets than the amount that normally circulates in your blood.
PRP for skin rejuvenation
Aging, too much sun, and acne scars affect the tone and texture of your skin. We combine PRP with Vivace™ microneedling for skin rejuvenation..
Microneedling is a cosmetic treatment that stimulates collagen production. Collagen is the protein that keeps your skin strong and resilient.
For skin rejuvenation treatments, we first use our Vivace tool to create microchannels on the surface of your skin and then apply the PRP.
Combining PRP with microneedling enhances collagen production and stimulates the production of new blood vessels, improving your skin’s strength, elasticity, and appearance.
PRP for hair restoration
Male- and female-patterned baldness, or hereditary hair loss, is the most common cause of hair loss in the world. Fortunately, there are many effective treatments for this type of hair loss, including PRP.
The growth factors in the PRP reactivate the dormant hair follicles in your scalp and prolong the hair growing cycle, restoring your hair’s natural thickness and health.
For hair restoration, we inject the PRP directly into the areas of the scalp where the hair is thinning. We recommend monthly injections for three to six months and follow-up treatments every three to six months to get the best results.
