What is PRP?

PRP or Platelet-Rich Plasma is a treatment in Washington DC & Baltimore that involves extracting a small amount of the patient’s blood, processing it to isolate the platelets, and then injecting the concentrated platelet-rich plasma back into the desired area. The platelets contain growth factors and other substances that help stimulate tissue repair, improve skin quality, and promote hair growth. PRP is commonly used in aesthetic medicine for facial rejuvenation, hair restoration, and wound healing.

PRP for Hair Restoration

PRP utilizes the healing properties of platelets to stimulate hair growth and improve hair density. In this procedure, a small amount of the patient’s blood is drawn and processed to extract the platelet-rich plasma. The PRP is then injected into the scalp, specifically targeting areas of thinning hair or hair loss. The growth factors and proteins present in the platelets help promote hair follicle health, increase blood circulation to the scalp, and stimulate new hair growth.

What are the Benefits of PRP?

PRP in Washington DC & Baltimore offers numerous benefits for patients seeking natural rejuvenation and healing. The key advantages of PRP include its ability to:

  • Stimulate collagen production

  • Promote tissue regeneration

By harnessing the healing properties of your body’s platelets, PRP can also effectively benefit various concerns such as wrinkles, acne scars, hair loss, and joint pain.

What are the Steps of PRP?

PRP at Landford Plastic Surgery involves several steps to ensure the effective delivery of the PRP solution and the life-changing results you’re seeking. During the procedure, a small blood sample is collected and processed through centrifugation to separate the platelet-rich plasma. The PRP is then prepared and may undergo additional filtration or concentration. Before the administration of PRP, a topical anesthetic may be applied to the treatment area for comfort. The PRP solution is delivered through injections or other unique application methods; this will be decided upon consultation.

After the procedure is complete, we will provide instructions for post-treatment care. Following these steps helps optimize the results of PRP Therapy and minimizes the potential risks.

Techniques for PRP

There are several different techniques used for PRP treatments, including:

Direct Injection

PRP is injected directly into the targeted body area, such as joints, muscles, or tendons.

Microneedling with PRP

PRP is applied topically to the skin and micro-needles into the surface for better absorption and rejuvenation.

Hair Restoration

PRP is injected into the scalp to stimulate hair growth and improve the thickness and quality of hair.

Facial Rejuvenation

PRP is combined with other cosmetic procedures, such as microdermabrasion or laser treatments, to enhance collagen production and promote skin rejuvenation. PRP is injected into specific areas of the face to improve wrinkles, fine lines, and volume loss.

Where are the Incisions and Scars for PRP?

In PRP procedures, there are typically no incisions or scars involved. Since PRP treatments involve the use of injections or topical application, the application sites may experience minimal needle marks or temporary redness, but these are generally small and fade quickly. The goal of PRP from Landford Plastic Surgery is to stimulate natural healing and rejuvenation without the need for surgical incisions or resulting scars.

PRP Recovery

The recovery process after PRP treatment is generally minimal and well-tolerated. You may experience some mild swelling, redness, or bruising at the injection or application sites, but these symptoms usually subside within a few days. It is recommended to avoid excessive sun exposure, strenuous activities, and the use of skin care products that may irritate the treated area for a short period following the procedure. Most individuals can resume their normal activities immediately after the treatment with little to no downtime.
