What is PRP?

PRP, or Platelet-Rich Plasma, is a plasma substance derived from your blood that is rich in components called platelets. PRP has growth factors that regenerate the cells, regrow skin tissues, improve skin texture and can even be used to stimulate hair follicle function. 

PRP naturally stimulates cell growth and tissue regeneration. PRP has been used for decades in the medical field to regenerate cells and tissues. PRP regenerates skin cells and smooths, tightens and enhances the appearance. When applied to the scalp, it stimulates the hair follicles and helps to regrow thicker, more healthy hair.

How does a PRP treatment work?

The platelets in PRP are combined with growth factors to regenerate tissues and stimulate cell growth and elasticity, and on the scalp, to revitalize and stimulate the hair follicles. 

During a PRP treatment in Canton, MA, a small amount of your blood is drawn from your arm. Your blood is centrifuged to separate out the platelets and the plasma. The platelets are reintroduced to the plasma, which creates a gel that is used to repair and restore the cells. 

Treatments typically take about one hour.

PRP Treatment Options:

PRP for the undereye area 

When applied under the eyes, PRP acts as a filler that repairs aging skin from within, and works to eliminate undereye circles and hollows. We inject this substance precisely into the treatment area under the eyes to achieve a more youthful appearance. The treatment also boosts collagen to refresh the skin from the inside out.

PRP for hair restoration

Patients with thinning, weakening hair, and initial hair loss have PRP therapy applied to the scalp. PRP is carefully injected into the proper areas, which stimulates the dormant or weakening hair follicles to begin regrowing thicker, fuller hair. 

Who is a candidate for PRP treatments?

Almost anyone who wants a natural, minimally-invasive solution for aging skin, undereye hollows, or hair loss is a candidate for PRP. PRP is derived from your own blood, which means there is a very low risk of reaction.

Ideal candidates for PRP treatments are meet the following requirements:

  • Are generally in good health
  • Do not smoke
  • Have not had recent steroid treatments
  • Are not pregnant or breastfeeding
  • Have no active skin infections or rashes in the treatment area

Additionally, for hair restoration: 

  • Are not fully bald but are in the early stages of hair loss
  • Have thin or thinning hair
  • Are experiencing male or female pattern hair loss

Benefits of PRP treatments 

PRP treatments are a very low-risk, minimally-invasive procedure with a short recovery time. PRP treatments in Brookline provide a number of additional benefits for patients who would like to treat dark circles and hollows under the eyes:

  • Increased collagen production
  • Enhanced skin tone, texture, and quality
  • Brighter, smoother, full skin under the eyes
  • Tighter, firmer skin
  • Long-lasting results
  • Effectively replaces filler treatments
  • Non-surgical hair restoration
  • Regenerated hair follicles that can produce healthy strands of hair
  • Renewed hair growth
  • A thicker, stronger head of hair

PRP Results 

New collagen and cells rebuild naturally, and this process takes time. The full results will be apparent within several weeks for PRP under eye treatments and can take several months for hair restoration. 

Patients will most likely need to have multiple sessions over a period of time to maintain their results. This will depend on your unique needs and physical attributes, and it will be determined ahead of time during your consultation. 

Recovery from PRP Treatments

While there is no significant recovery time to worry about, and you can return to your usual activities right away, there may be some side effects after your treatment. After a PRP treatment in Brookline, you may experience a small amount of pain or slight bleeding at the injection site as well as swelling for 4-5 days after PRP under eye injections.
