PRP THERAPY

 Platelet rich plasma, also known as PRP, is a treatment where a concentrate of growth factors and skin nutrients derived from your own blood is used to improve the signs of aging, skin damage and hair loss. This procedure involves drawing a small amount of your blood, centrifuging it and injecting the obtained growth factor rich concentrate or PRP back into your skin or scalp. The PRP stimulates the formation of collagen and improves the texture of the skin. When injected into the scalp it can activate dormant hair follicles and stimulate hair growth. The procedure is done under topical anesthesia or nerve blocks if requested. At Age Defy MD we use two different centrifuges that either obtain a x4 concentration or x10 concentration of PRP. For Hair loss, the x8 concentration of PRP is recommended. Pricing is per vial of PRP used.

The procedure takes around 60-90 min from start to finish. This includes the time it takes to harvest and centrifuge the blood and for the local anesthesia to kick in.

Depending on the area treated anywhere from 1 to 4 spaced 3-4 weeks apart. For Hair restoration 4 sessions are recommended.

Results usually last 6-12 months and maintenance every 4-6 months is recommended.

Will there be any bruising?

Some bruising and swelling can be expected as we are injecting the skin multiple times. Dr. Goyle tries to avoid injecting near visible blood vessels to minimize bruising. Bruising and swelling usually subside within a few days to a few weeks.

Yes! Absolutely. This is a great alternative to facials for men.

PRP can be painful as mixing the PRP with an anesthetic like Lidocaine can inactivate it. Strong Topical anesthetics, a vibrational distraction tool and on occasion nerve blocks by injecting lidocaine around the area to be treated are given to maximize patent comfort.

Collagen and hair growth take time, so most patients see results in 4-12 weeks.

It is not advisable, even though this is a safe procedure. No studies have been performed in the safety of this procedure while pregnant or nursing and therefore it is not recommended.
