PRP stands for Platelet Rich Plasma. This solution of collected plasma helps stimulate tissue repair and collagen growth for healthier and stronger tissue. This mixture can be applied to the patient’s skin during micro-needling treatment for skin revitalization. PRP also has the potential to increase hair volume and stimulate natural hair growth in the scalp. It increases the blood supply to the hair follicle, increases hair thickness and subsides hair loss. PRP treatment is one of Dr. Bermudez’s most versatile skin/hair treatment procedure that requires no serious surgery.
A small amount of blood is drawn from the patient’s arm. The blood is then placed in a centrifuge that spins at high speed and separates the platelets from the rest of the blood components. The concentrated PRP is then applied topically or injected into and around the affected area, jump-starting and significantly strengthening the body’s natural healing signals. The entire process takes less than 30 minutes.
