What Can PRP Be Used For?

PRP, or platelet-rich plasma, is a component of blood that promotes healing and stimulates cell growth. When used to address aesthetic concerns, PRP can aid in the healing process and increase the efficacy of your results.

Physician Skin Solutions at Arrowhead offers PRP treatments and PRP microneedling treatments. Headed by Dr. Shannon Maltais and her expert team, Physician Skin Solutions at Arrowhead provides a range of skin rejuvenation and hair restoration treatments.

What is Platelet-Rich Plasma?

PRP (platelet-rich plasma) contains a concentration of plasma protein obtained from blood centrifuged to remove red blood cells. PRP treatments exist for treating various medical conditions, and they also offer great benefits for addressing cosmetic concerns.

At Physician Skin Solutions at Arrowhead, the process of using PRP involves drawing a sample of the client’s own blood and extracting the PRP proteins using a centrifuge (a device that spins the blood around very quickly).

The extracted PRP then gets injected into specific treatment areas, either as part of a hair restoration treatment or alongside microneedling to repair damaged skin by encouraging cell growth.

Benefits of PRP

Perhaps the most significant advantage of using PRP is that it reduces the risk of side effects because it is derived directly from the patient. This means there is no chance of rejection or allergic reaction. PRP is a safe way to address various cosmetic concerns and uses the body’s own blood to help rejuvenate damaged skin.

Another benefit of PRP is that it can get used for hair restoration. Clients that experience slight or significant hair loss can opt for PRP hair restoration to have fuller, thicker hair grow back around the scalp – especially near the forehead.

All PRP cosmetic treatments get conducted at Physician Skin Solutions at Arrowhead as outpatient procedures, and there’s typically no downtime associated with PRP microneedling and PRP hair restoration.

PRP Treatments

At Physician Skin Solutions at Arrowhead, we offer two treatments that feature platelet-rich plasma.

PRP Hair Restoration

The PRP hair restoration treatment we offer uses your body’s own PRP proteins to encourage hair growth in areas of the scalp where hair loss or thinning is most evident. The platelets get injected into the treatment areas and take around two hours to perform.

Microneedling With PRP

Microneedling is one of our most popular skin rejuvenation treatments. Combined with PRP proteins, the treatment results in radiant, brighter skin and significantly improves cosmetic concerns like wrinkles, fine lines, scarring, and sun damage.

PRP Injections

PRP Injections promote collagen production beneath the skin’s surface. These injections are primarily used underneath the eyes to treat volume loss and dark circles. If the patient seeks volume, PRP injections may be combined with Hyaluronic Acid injections to enhance the overall result.  

Am I a Candidate for PRP Treatments?

You could be a candidate for PRP treatments from Physician Skin Solutions at Arrowhead if you have cosmetic skin concerns due to scarring, the aging process, or over-exposure to the sun.

Our PRP treatments are also ideal for people looking for effective hair restoration treatments. PRP treatments can be applied to clients with all skin types and tones and are suitable for people that are generally healthy.
