Your body has tools that it uses to heal and regenerate itself — it’s just a matter of harnessing them. With platelet-rich plasma (PRP), Kelly DiStefano, MD, Kenneth Distefano, and the team at Montclair Rejuvenation Center do exactly that, transforming and revitalizing your skin or supporting hair restoration. To learn more about what PRP can do for you, call the Verona, New Jersey, office or schedule an appointment online today.
To understand platelet-rich plasma or PRP, it’s first helpful to understand your platelets and the role they play in your body.
Platelets are a component of blood. Whenever you get injured, your body directs platelets to the area. Thanks to their growth factors, platelets help stimulate growth in your cells, triggering both healing and the generation of new cells.
While your body naturally sends platelets to areas that urgently need it, it doesn’t direct them to areas where the changes in your body only harm your appearance, not your overall health. But Montclair Rejuvenation Center has a way to harness the regenerative power of platelets to help you reach your aesthetic goals.
During platelet-rich plasma treatment, your Montclair Rejuvenation Center provider delivers the PRP to targeted areas. They use PRP for two specific purposes:
Montclair Rejuvenation Center pairs PRP with Vivace™ microneedling. The Vivace device creates tiny channels on the surface of your skin. Applying a serum of PRP after microneedling allows the PRP to use these channels to reach the deeper layers of your skin, triggering rejuvenation. PRP is ideal for minimizing the appearance of wrinkles, scars, and more.
Montclair Rejuvenation Center providers can inject PRP into targeted locations on your scalp. The PRP stimulates healing in hair follicles that have fallen dormant and revitalizes all of your hair follicles. Over time, this helps the follicles naturally produce a head of thick, healthy hair.
Platelet-rich plasma aesthetic treatments are noninvasive and come with no downtime. You can get your treatment and head immediately to wherever your day takes you next.
The PRP treatment stimulates your body’s natural rejuvenation and regeneration processes, but these take time. Over the coming weeks and months, you see the results from your treatment as your body uses the PRP.
Some people achieve their cosmetic goals with a single PRP treatment, while others choose multiple treatments. For hair restoration, a series of treatments is almost always required to deliver the best results.
