Platelet-Rich Therapy for Skin, Hair and Lift
When someone tells you applying your blood to your skin is a beauty treatment, you may be skeptical – and even a little creeped out. However, the dramatic results of platelet-rich plasma therapy will make you a believer.
Platelet-rich plasma therapy uses your own blood to stimulate collagen growth, rejuvenate skin and even restore hair follicles. Science may not always be pretty, but with platelet-rich plasma treatments, your results can be beautiful.
What is Platelet-Rich Plasma Therapy?
Platelets are a component of blood that bind together to promote clotting when tissues are injured. They are a natural source of growth factors.
Platelet-rich plasma allows for a greater release of growth factors and biologically active proteins. These components activate wound-healing processes in the skin, including collagen production. Increased collagen production makes skin look and act younger.
What Treatments use Platelet-Rich Plasma Therapy?
Harmony Healing offers several PRP therapy options that suite your lifestyle and goals.
The Vampire Facial uses platelet-rich plasma to rejuvenate facial skin by tightening, smoothing and creating a more even tone.
The first step is to have blood drawn in the office. The blood sample is placed in a centrifuge to separate the platelet-rich plasma from other blood components. The process only takes about 10 minutes.
Then, we prepare your facial skin with a specialized microneedling handpiece. The handpiece uses 12 tiny needles that move up and down at a rate of 8,000 times per minute to create micro-perforations in the skin. After we ready the skin’s surface, we paint on the platelet-rich plasma, coating and soaking your face with growth factors. The growth factors activate the skin’s multipotent stem cells by tricking them into reacting as though new tissue is needed to heal an injury.
After your facial, we will go over your recovery and maintenance program to optimize your results.
Vampire Breast Lift
Our first step is to evaluate your concerns and determine if the Vampire Breast Lift is the best way to address your issues. If Vampire Breast Lift is right for you, we will schedule your procedure.
On the day of treatment, we create a platelet-rich plasma serum from your own blood using a centrifuge in our office. The process takes only about 10 minutes.
Then, using numbing cream and a very small needle, we inject the growth factors into the breast tissues in the predetermined areas. When these growth factors enter the breast, multipotent stem cells activate to grow new tissue, including collagen, fatty tissue and new blood vessels. The result is an increased volume and firmness in the breasts and rejuvenated skin.
The effects of the Vampire Breast Lift keep improving for two to three months and last for at least one year and up to two years.
Microneedling (With and Without PRP)
We can perform microneedling with or without platelet-rich plasma. While microneedling alone is a very effective way to treat a wide variety of skin issues, studies have shown that using PRP adds significant improvement. Platelet-rich plasma therapy combined with microneedling improves large pores, acne scars and fine lines.
Hair Restoration With PRP
Hair restoration is one of the newest frontiers for platelet-rich plasma therapy. Many patients see dramatic results. To restore hair growth, we inject platelet-rich plasma directly into the scalp at the level of the hair follicles.
Is Platelet-Rich Plasma Therapy Safe?
Platelet-rich therapy has been used for decades to speed healing after injuries and surgery. Platelet-rich plasma therapies use FDA-approved devices.
Because we make platelet-rich plasma with the patient’s own blood, there is minimal risk of reaction and no risk of contracting any blood-borne disease as long as you see a credentialed provider.
