Benefits of Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy

PRP therapy is one of the most natural and effective ways to support your body’s own collagen production in a way that leads to lasting results. The beauty of the treatment is that it uses your own body’s innate ability to heal and repair. With a blood draw, concentrated platelets are extracted and either injected or placed in areas to stimulate collagen production and the creation of new connective tissue. PRP stimulates something called the inflammatory cascade, where it releases growth factors and protein to create new tissue and to stimulate the formation of new and healthy vessels, alongside healing old injuries and scars [1]. The best part about it all - is that there are minimal to no side effects from treatment.

Where can it be used?

  • On the skin: PRP is most commonly used in combination with a microneedling pen to deliver the plasma into the dermal layer of the skin, primarily on the face. The microneedling pen creates micropunctures into the skin, delivering the plasma into the dermis, which helps to break up acne scar tissue, decrease fine lines and wrinkles, reduce hyperpigmentation and stimulate collagen production. Current research indicates that 3 microneedling sessions, spaced 4-6 weeks apart, has a 400% increase in collagen production that was present 1 and 2 years after treatments [2].
  • Having an FDA approved microneedling pen is important for the safety of this procedure, and here at Nourish we use the SkinPen, an FDA approved pen that is safe and reliable. We want to make sure you are getting the most effective results from your treatment.
  • On the scalp to stimulate hair growth: PRP is one of the best ways to reactivate dormant hair follicles for thinning and aging hair. Suffering from covid-related, stress, hormonal or genetic hair loss? You’re not alone. The past 3 years have been the time that everyone has lost their hair from all the added infection, illness, and stress on the body. When PRP is injected into the scalp it stimulates angiogenesis - the production of new vessels - which resupply the hair follicle with a blood vessel, to bring circulation and nutrients to stimulate growth [3]. The best time is to get it within 7 years of thinning, rather than when the hair follicle is completely dormant, in order to activate the growth cycle again. Best part about this treatment is that it is quick, relatively painless, and has results that you can see quickly!
  • Specific areas on the face: to stimulate collagen production in areas that are thin, sagging or don’t have optimal elasticity. Examples include cheeks, nasolabial folds, tear troughs, forehead lines, glabella and lips.
