Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections are rejuvenating treatments that serve many aesthetics and wellness purposes. At SafiraMD Medical Aesthetics and Wellness Center, Dr. Volk and the team use PRP injections for various types of face and body rejuvenation.
The substance itself is made up of parts of your blood. Platelets are a type of blood cell, separate from red and white blood cells, that participate in the natural healing process. They help your blood clot to stop bleeding and contain growth factors that trigger cell reproduction. Additionally, PRP contains blood plasma. It’s the liquid in which the cells are suspended.
PRP injections increase the number of growth factors in an area that needs help with healing. You can treat your skin, scalp, or other various parts of your body depending on your goals for treatment.
The PRP in your injections at SafiraMD Medical Aesthetics and Wellness Center comes from a sample of your own blood. Your treatment starts with a quick blood draw. Once they obtain the sample, the team at SafiraMD Medical Aesthetics and Wellness Center puts the container in a centrifuge.
A centrifuge separates your blood into layers of specific cell types by using centrifugal force. The rapid spinning motion causes blood cells to separate based on their density, making it easy for the team to take out all the red and white blood cells. The final product is platelet-rich plasma.
SafiraMD Medical Aesthetics and Wellness Center offers PRP injections to serve several purposes. After getting a solid idea of your goals and expectations during a consultation, the team might recommend one of these treatments that use PRP injections:
The P-Shot® for men and the O-Shot® for women can help treat sexual dysfunction resulting from age-or menopause-related changes.
PRP hair restoration works by reviving dormant follicles that no longer effectively grow hair on your scalp.
Vampire facials and face-lifts use PRP injections to alter your facial contours or improve your skin. They can minimize lines and wrinkles, restore volume, and minimize undereye circles, among other benefits.
A Vampire breast lift makes your breasts firmer or fuller using PRP injections alone.
