The signs of aging aren’t always as obvious as they might seem. They present themselves in a couple of fine wrinkles you notice in the mirror one morning, or maybe in the realization that your hair isn’t quite as thick and voluminous as it once was. While plastic surgery and synthetic fillers can make a big difference in combating the obvious signs of aging, you may wish for an option that is a little more subtle or less invasive to address the onset of wrinkles and hair loss.
Platelet rich plasma therapy, or PRP, is an all-natural method used to treat a variety of cosmetic concerns. PRP can rejuvenate your skin and give it a fresh, healthy glow. It can also be used to stimulate hair follicles into a new growth phase. So, whether you’re looking to improve your skin or combat early signs of hair loss, PRP therapy treatments at Spa in the City can be an effective option to treat your cosmetic needs.
How Do PRP Treatments Work?
During your PRP treatment, a small amount of your blood is drawn and spun in a centrifuge. This process separates the red and white blood cells from the clear plasma, resulting in a serum rich in healing platelets. The PRP is administered to the targeted areas, either by spreading it over the face or by injection into the scalp for hair restoration. The PRP promotes quicker cellular turnover and adds a direct source of highly-beneficial growth hormones to speed up your body’s recovery process.
PRP for Skin Rejuvenation
PRP, coupled with skin resurfacing treatments, can yield truly satisfying results. Spa in the City offers both Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT) and Fractional Skin Resurfacing to combine with PRP therapy for elimination and reduction of skin blemishes. CIT and Fractional Skin Resurfacing are two treatments that gently damage the top layer of your skin to jumpstart your body’s natural healing process and stimulate collagen production.
While your body is in the process of healing, PRP will be applied to your face to speed recovery and encourage the production of collagen to smooth fine wrinkles, acne scarring and age spots. Together, PRP and skin resurfacing treatments are a powerful one-two punch that can get your skin smooth and glowing.
PRP for Hair Restoration
PRP has recently shown promise in thickening and regrowing hair for those affected by hair loss. Once your blood is drawn and the PRP is prepared, it’s injected straight into the scalp to promote hair restoration in the targeted areas. PRP therapy for hair restoration works best for hair that has just started to thin, but not for those who have already experienced large amounts of hair loss. It can reactivate aging follicles, but it can’t revive them completely.
So, are PRP treatments safe? Absolutely. PRP is all-natural, so you won’t have to worry about the presence of any synthetic substances in your body. It’s a minimally-invasive procedure that is simple, quick and comfortable, and offers a variety of applications to treat your cosmetic concerns.
