PRP Q & A

What is PRP or platelet-rich plasma?

Plasma is a liquid in your blood. Your blood is also made up of platelets, red blood cells, and white blood cells. The platelets play a role in blood clotting, but they also contain growth factors that can prompt cell regeneration and assist in healing injuries.

PRP is plasma that’s much richer in platelets compared to what’s normally found in your blood. Dr. Lee uses a centrifugation process to obtain the platelet-rich plasma. The centrifugation process makes the growth factors around five to 10 times more concentrated and richer than normal.

Platelet-rich plasma therapy (PRP) was originally designed to speed up and assist your body’s natural healing process. PRP is used in a number of medical fields, including anti-aging and beauty.

To obtain the PRP, Dr. Lee draws your blood and uses a special centrifuge machine to separate and concentrate the platelets. After the centrifugation process is complete, Dr. Lee carefully mixes the increased concentration of platelets with your remaining blood and injects it into the target area. Typically, Dr. Lee can administer multiple injections during one convenient PRP session.

What can PRP treat?

Dr. Lee provides PRP to treat a number of concerns. PRP works for:

  • Hair rejuvenation
  • Female urinary incontinence
  • Facial rejuvenation (wrinkle reduction and volume restoration)
  • Male and female sexual enhancement

When PRP is injected into an area of the body, the PRP stimulates the healing process, cell regeneration, and the production of collagen and elastin and healthy cells. By using natural growth factors derived from your blood, you can boost hair growth, plump your skin and reduce wrinkles, resolve urinary incontinence, and enhance sexual pleasure and functioning.

PRP can also be combined with microneedling (vampire facelift) and rejuvenate your skin to combat the signs of aging. PRP can be used in a vampire breast lift to subtly plump the breasts so they appear fuller.

What are the benefits of PRP?

PRP can provide both cosmetic and functional benefits. PRP can be effectively utilized for a number of purposes.  

Unlike many other treatments, PRP doesn’t involve surgery or medications that often come along with unwanted risks and side effects. PRP is more affordable than many other treatment methods.

PRP simply involves a quick in-office lunchtime procedure with no downtime. PRP is a more natural treatment that’s safe and successful and uses your own blood, so your body won’t reject it.

If you’re unsure about surgical procedures or man-made substances to address your cosmetic concerns, try PRP instead. Call Simon Med Spa or book online today.
