PRP can treat multiple concerns

PRP therapy is a popular treatment option in Huntersville, NC. This treatment offers results on its own, but can also be combined with other treatment options to give patients the best results possible. Discover two common uses for PRP and how it works for each.

Uses for PRP

1. Fighting signs of aging. Most people may be familiar with PRP therapy as a treatment to fight signs of aging on the face such as wrinkles and fine lines. This treatment gives patients younger-looking skin with no downtown and quick treatment time.

Dr. Stephen Giordano, medical director at Carolina Age Management Institute (CAMI) uses PRP therapy with microneedling to give patients the best results possible. For this treatment, PRP, which is found in your blood, is hyper-concentrated via a centrifuge. It is then injected or applied topically on the skin and area of concern. This boosts collagen production in the areas which add volume, reducing wrinkles and giving skin a smoother look and feel.

2. Hair restoration. Dr. Giordano also uses PRP therapy to help restore hair for those dealing with hair loss. This platelet-rich plasma is taken from your blood and placed into the areas of the scalp where your hair is thinning. This stimulates the hair follicles, thus promoting hair growth.

Dr. Giordano may also combine PRP with ACell, an FDA-approved protein mix. This mix, when combined with PRP, attracts the body’s factors and healing proteins to continuously provide growth factors to the hair follicles. This combination slows hair loss and can boost hair regrowth.

The benefits of PRP therapy

Whether you are receiving a PRP treatment to eliminate wrinkles or boost hair growth, there are many benefits to using this treatment option. First, is that it is noninvasive. You don’t have to undergo major surgery and can, in fact, return to normal activities after. And, since it is noninvasive, the risk of adverse reactions is minimal.

PRP therapy for both skin and hair is also relatively quick procedures. You won’t have to sacrifice an entire day of your time. PRP for the face can be done quickly, and the treatment for hair restoration can be done in about an hour.

Finally, both offer the results you want. PRP therapy for the skin offers a long-lasting solution and will leave your skin looking younger for quite a while. PRP therapy for hair loss offers natural-looking results, leaving you feeling confident in your appearance.
