Laser and needling treatments are enhance by the PRP to produce a better result. This advanced treatment additive can also help in the reduction of scars.
How does PRP work?
Platelet Rich Plasma can help your skin and scalp in a variety of ways. Here at Mountain View Dermatology & Aesthetics we use several PRP techniques, particularly in a form known as ACell + PRP.
ACell + PRP is a non-surgical method for enhancing hair growth. It can help you avoid more hair loss, as well as enhance your hair growth after hair transplant surgery.
The ACell component of this treatment is a biomatrix which repairs and restructures damaged tissues. For hair restoration, PRP and ACell are combined and injected into your scalp. This treatment causes your hair follicles to become thicker and healthier, producing robust hair growth with greater density, so you’ll have a fuller head of hair.
PRP helps both men and women, and is effective for regrowing hair in cases of alopecia areata (a form of baldness), eyebrow hypotrichosis, and other conditions of hereditary hair loss.
Our ACell + PRP treatments take about 90 minutes, with local anesthetic. Any pain is easily managed with over-the-counter medications, and the recovery is typically quick and uneventful. There’s very little swelling, and no downtime. Within a couple of days after treatment, you can wash your hair as you normally do.
A fuller, richer head of hair
You can see new hair growth as early as 6 weeks following treatment, yet it’s more evident beginning between 3 to 4 months and continuing to about 12 to 15 months after treatment. Some patients show improved hair growth for up to two years.
PRP as anti-aging treatment for skin rejuvenation
Beyond stimulating hair growth, Platelet Rich Plasma has also shown promising results through a variety of techniques to rejuvenate skin and reduce the effects of sun damage and aging on your skin.
