We are excited to offer Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) treatments at Universal Dermatology & Vein Care. PRP is a method that uses platelets from your own blood to stimulate skin and hair regrowth and rejuvenation. It is commonly injected into the face or scalp and can also be used as an add-on to microneedling procedures to boost collagen production.
How It Works
At Universal Dermatology & Vein Care, we utilize the Eclipse PRP® system for PRP treatments. The Eclipse Platelet Rich Plasma system utilizes a patented separator gel technology to isolate the platelets from the blood while eliminating undesirable inflammatory components, such as red blood and white blood cells.
Platelets contain growth factors that regulate skin healing by signaling the surrounding cells to repair damage and regenerate new tissue like collagen and blood vessels. When injected into the skin and scalp, or used with microneedling, PRP encourages skin and hair to grow and regenerate, leading to younger looking skin and thicker, healthier hair.
PRP for Hair Loss
PRP treatments can help stimulate hair growth and increase hair density in patients noticing early signs of hair thinning. Hair loss is a common genetic condition and can be stressful for both men and women. Traditional hair loss treatments, such as topical medicines, hair vitamins or prescription medications, can have side effects and limited success. PRP is a way to stimulate hair growth and thickness naturally, without surgery or downtime. The treatment uses your own platelets and growth factors to awaken dormant hair follicles and promote hair growth. Typically, 3-4 scalp PRP sessions are needed and are scheduled one month apart. Continued maintenance treatments can be performed every 6-12 months to sustain the results. It is important to note that PRP is not a cure for baldness. The best candidates for this treatment should be in the beginning stages of hair loss.
