What is PRP?

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is an innovative medical procedure that leverages the healing properties found in your own blood. During the treatment, a small amount of blood is drawn and spun in a centrifuge to isolate platelets, which are then injected back into the body at specific sites. These platelets contain growth factors that stimulate tissue regeneration, making PRP effective for skin rejuvenation, tear trough volumization, hair restoration, and much more.

PRP Corrects:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Acne scars
  • Sun damage
  • Uneven skin tone and texture
  • Large pores
  • Dull complexion
  • Sagging skin
  • Under-eye dark circles
  • Deep tear troughs
  • Stretch marks
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Textural irregularities
  • Thinning or receding hair
  • Male or female pattern hair loss

How PRP Treatments Work

PRP Skin Rejuvenation

PRP skin rejuvenation works through the body’s natural healing mechanisms. The platelets in the blood contain growth factors crucial for tissue repair and regeneration. When injected into the skin, these platelets release growth factors, stimulating collagen and elastin production. This process enhances skin elasticity, thickness, and texture, reducing wrinkles, scars, and blemishes while promoting a youthful, radiant complexion through cellular rejuvenation.

PRP Tear Trough Volumization

Tear trough volumization leverages the regenerative properties of PRP to address under-eye hollows and dark circles. When injected into the tear trough area, the growth factors in PRP stimulate collagen and elastin production, promoting tissue regeneration and volumization. By restoring volume and improving skin elasticity, PRP reduces the appearance of hollows and dark circles under the eyes. This offers a natural solution for rejuvenating the under-eye area.

PRP Hair Restoration

The platelets in PRP contain growth factors essential for tissue repair and hair growth. When injected into the scalp, these growth factors stimulate hair follicles’ activity, prolonging the growth phase and encouraging new hair growth. Additionally, PRP enhances blood supply to the scalp, nourishing follicles and promoting thicker, healthier hair. Through this process, PRP offers a non-invasive solution for combating hair loss and restoring natural hair growth.

Your PRP Journey


The PRP treatment begins with a simple blood draw from your arm, much like a routine blood test. The collected blood is placed into a centrifuge, which separates the platelet-rich plasma (PRP) from other blood components. Once the PRP is isolated, it’s injected into the targeted areas, such as the face, scalp, or tear troughs, using fine needles. The entire procedure is typically quick and well-tolerated, with minimal discomfort.


You may experience minor side effects like redness, swelling, or bruising at the injection sites, which typically resolve within a few days. Some individuals may also notice slight tenderness or itching in the treated area. However, serious side effects are rare due to the use of your own blood, minimizing the risk of allergic reactions. You can resume your regular activities immediately, but avoid strenuous exercise and sun exposure for a few days.


The results from PRP treatments vary depending on individual factors like skin condition and treatment area. Typically, you may notice improvements within a few weeks to months after the initial session as collagen production is stimulated. While some individuals achieve desired results after just one session, others may benefit from multiple treatments spaced weeks apart. The longevity varies, but many individuals enjoy benefits for up to 12 to 18 months.
